I am extremely late on this one but better late than never. The celebrity gossip juggernaut, TMZ, first revealed back on January 28, 2014 that six time Grammy R&B singer-songwriter, Toni Braxton, purchased a Calabasas mansion for $3 million. The other startling headline is that Braxton just got out of bankruptcy 6 months with $50 million in liabilities prior to purchase which is amazing in itself. At the time of this writing, property records and real estate listings dont reflect any sale transactions for anybody so I am wondering if this is the wrong house claimed by TMZ or simply just an incorrect rumor or some funny business going on.
The home measures 4 Beds/4.5 Baths on 5,323 sqft on a total lot size of 0.39 acres built in 2005 in the infamous guard gated The Estates at the Oaks in Calabasas which is home to many other celebrities and executives. The listing description states:
Exclusive Estates at The Oaks~French Country Inspired single story. A private courtyard entry welcomes you to this 4 bedroom (could be 5) storybook home. Elegantly detailed with fine designer finishes thruout. Gleaming wood floors, custom beam ceiling & built-in cabinetry accentuate the formal living area. The magnificent chef's kitchen w/ Sub Zero & Wolf professional stainless appliances, granite counters & Walker Zanger tile work & custom hand distressed/rubbed finished cabinetry. The elegant private master suite features a sitting area, dual walk-in closets & sumptuous bath with limestone floors, spa tub, designer tile shower, water closet & vanity. Lushly landscaped gardens surround this treasure. The serene private rear yard incs a salt water pool/spa, loggia, multiple fountains, & outdoor fireplace.
Its not known where Braxton was living prior to this new purchase but she may have been living with her sister and brother-in-law, Tamar Braxton & Vincent Herbert, when they lived in Encino and Hidden Hills and now currently they live in the same gated community in Calabasas that Toni Braxton purchased.
