Kelly Clarkson’s jaw-dropping real estate
Kelly Clarkson has accumulated an impressive career: several peaks, two Grammys and some 25 million albums sold worldwide.
Clarkson rose to fame after winning the first season of “American Idol” in 2002. In addition to her recording career, she coached for “The Voice” and hosted her Emmy-winning daytime show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show”. ”
She also accumulated a number of hot properties.
We dove into the singer’s hefty real estate portfolio to get a closer look at what she’s been buying and selling. Stops include posh digs near Los Angeles, a ranch in Montana, and numerous homes in Tennessee and Texas.
With her talk show renewed for a fourth season, Clarkson has put down roots in Los Angeles
She recently purchased a gated estate in Toluca Lake, an upscale neighborhood with celebrity residents who have included Octavia Spencer, Melissa McCarthyand Kirsten Dunst.
Clarkson paid $5,445,000 in June 2021 for the resort, which includes a colonial-style main house, guest house, lighted tennis court and swimming pool.
Renovated in 1985, the 1930s mansion sits on just over an acre.
Previously, Clarkson sold his modern farmhouse in Encino, Calif., for $8.24 million in September 2021.
It was a loss for Clarkson, who bought the custom-built property in 2018 for $8.5 million. She had listed the home for just under $10 million in May 2020, following her split from her husband, Brandon Blackstock.
The 10,000 square foot Encino Residence features eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and two half bathrooms.
With a color scheme of white, gray and black, the eye-catching space features wooden beams, glass walls and a sleek kitchen with three islands.
Indoor amenities include a home cinema, fitness center, game room and wine cellar.
In the back there is a tiered pool, lounge area, fire pit, outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, and a grassy lawn. The property includes a separate two bedroom guest house.
Clarkson also owns a ranch guy. At the start of the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020, Clarkson’s talk show came to a halt and her Las Vegas residency was postponed. So she and her family decamped to a ranch in Montana, where they lived in a log cabin and rode horses while weathering the global pandemic.
“Hiding in Montana,” she wrote alongside a video she shared on Instagram at the time.
Property records show she purchased the rural property in 2019. Although the final sale price was not disclosed, the 5,700-acre ranch was previously on the market for $9.9 million.
The cattle ranch with horses and land seemed to have provided the perfect place to social distance with family.

Clarkson also seemed to embrace the gift of time with her family on the scenic property.
“It’s nice to be in nature. … It’s nice to come here and sit by the creek and hear the water flowing and be around all the trees,” she said.
Here is the ballad of the nurseries of Clarkson in Tennessee. In 2007, Clarkson went country a bit and bought a relatively modest home in Nashville. Located in the Belle Meade neighborhood, the charming stone cottage cost the singer $1.5 million.
After four years of ownership, she suffered a loss on the three-bedroom home in 2011, selling it for $1.2 million.
Instead of singing the blues, Clarkson sought another residence in the Nashville area. In 2014, she bought a massive 275-acre farm in Lebanon, TN, for $1.96 million.
Located about 30 minutes outside of Nashville, the retreat offers a fishing lake, one-bedroom cabin, and a large barn for storage or entertaining.
She had better luck with this investment, which she sold in 2020 for $3 million.
In 2012 Clarkson and Blackstock landed a luxury spread in Hendersonville, TN for $2,860,000. They invested a lot of money in a custom remodel.
The seven-bedroom spread offers 20,000 square feet of living space and rests on 4 aces.
Features include a two-story great room with a fireplace, kitchen with breakfast nook and adjacent family room, movie room, game room, and cowboy bar with horse-saddle seating.
Outside, a split staircase from the balcony leads to a saltwater pool with two spas, covered dining area, and private lake access, plus a dock.
In 2017, Clarkson listed the mansion for $8.75 million. It was finally sold in June 2021 for $6.3 million.
Originally from the Lone Star State, Clarkson made a big land acquisition in Mansfield, near where she grew up.
The 6,880-square-foot, 14-acre country estate features four bedrooms, including two-bedroom suites, a theater and gym.
Clarkson added a pond in the garden, two swimming pools, a treehouse and dog runs. She sold the place in October 2012 for $1.5 million.
Additionally, Clarkson purchased a few more homes and more land across the street, totaling over 60 acres. She got rid of all those holdings about a decade ago, according to property records.
