Celebrity Real Estate: Scary Spice of Spice Girls and Husband List Tarzana Estate at $3.45 Million

[Update March 26, 2012]: This home sold for $3 million on March 16, 2012 after originally being listed at $3,450,000 and sitting on the market for roughly 3 months. This sale also represents a loss to Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte of $159,000 not including other expenses associated with the property. What I failed to mention in the original post is that this home was sold due to a divorce between Brown and Belafonte, hence the reason for the loss and quick sale after only living in it for less than 3 years. 

[Original Post]:
Hot off the presses from the always informative Lauren Beale of the L.A. Times Hot Property comes word of Singer Melanie Brown aka Scary Spice of the Spice Girls and producer husband Stephen Belafonte have listed their Tarzana estate on January 12, 2012 for $3.45 million.

Melanie Brown is an actress, author, singer-songwriter, and television presenter. She is mostly known for being a member of the Spice Girls known as Scary Spice. She also goes by the name of Melanie B. Her husband, Stephen Belafonte, is a producer having produced The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans as well as the reality show based on her wife titled, Mel B: It's A Scary World. One random note while researching for this post, Mel B had a daughter with Eddie Murphy on Eddie's 46th birthday. Got love Hollywood!

According to the listing, this 5 Bed/7.5 Bath home on 8,204sqft on 0.6 acres which built in 1965 but undergone a recent $1 million renovation states:
Magnificent gated compound!The recently completed 1million dollar renovation includes a professional gym , state of the art detached movie theater in addition to a detached, recording studio-all of which were built in the last 24 months. Majestic master suite and junior suites, grand public rooms, venetian chandeliers throughout, exquisite European appointments, chef's kitchen with professional grade appliances. The 5 star resort-like grounds include an outdoor dining room with chandeliers, living room area , cabana and flat screens. Magical views!!! CAT 6, HDMI wiring and state of the art security system. No expense was spared on this truly breathtaking estate!
Mel B and Belafonte purchased this home on September 24, 2009 for $3,159,000 and appear to be selling for a small profit when factoring commissions and other expenses. I believe the recent $1 million dollar upgrade stated in the listing was completed prior to Mel B and Belafonte's purchase seeing  how they barely lived in the home for around 2 years. But I am just speculating so dont quote me.

Some other random notes about this property:
  1. The reality star Kendra and her husband, former NFL player, Hank Baskett, rented a home across the street from Mel B while filming their reality show, Kendra. The Realestalker covered that back in April 2010 and Kendra mentioned it in her book, Being Kendra: Cribs, Cocktails, And Getting My Sexy Back.  She basically described how much fun they had together and they would play games together and openly talk about sex stuff. Yes, you read that correctly. 
  2. Mel B was sued by a real estate appraiser over alleged assault who supposedly at the time was taking pics of her home to appraise similar homes in the area.
