A sprawling Mediterranean-style Buckhead residence once owned and loved by pop legend Mariah Carey is being offered at a reduced price, per the listing.

Although it’s undergone numerous discounts, this unique 7,100-square-foot dwelling, which echoes Europe’s more temperate regions from landscaping to ceiling beams, is billed as a “rare find” and “amazing opportunity” once cherished by the celebrity.

“Mariah Carey apparently loved her tenure as this property’s owner [and] we are confident you will as well,” reads the listing.

Built in 1983, the home falls within one of the top 100 wealthiest zip codes in the country, where neighbors include the former mega-manse of Tyler Perry, which is back on the market for $25 million.

It’s unclear when the five-time Grammy winning singer and actress may have called Paces Valley Road home. (We’ve reached out to the listing agent for more intel, and will post any that comes). But here in Buckhead’s tony Kingswood district, there’s certainly enough space—two acres—and tree-buffered privacy that glass-shattering octaves might not perturb the neighbors.

The “Songbird Supreme” herself isn’t listed as an owner in the property’s tax records, which isn’t surprising.

Inside, the stucco-clad five-bedroom is more restrained (the opulent kitchen notwithstanding) than the $2.42 million asking price might suggest in Atlanta.

Beyond the grounds, perks include the eye-pleasing screened porch, a footbridge, guest suite, wine cellar, and multiple levels of hangouts, culminating with the pool.

Records indicate the house hasn’t traded since 2014, when it went for $2.66 million—significantly less than the latest price posted last week.

In recent years, the property’s been priced as high as $2.92 million and has been offered as a rental. For $25,000 per month.
