Nov. 13, 2000 -- ABC’s Dharma & Greg star Jenna Elfman displayed her house-hunting karma this week, as she and hubby Bodhi Elfman snapped up Madonna’s Mediterranean-style home in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills.
The price? A mere $4 million, according to the Los Angeles Times’ Sunday real estate column, “Hot Property.” Elfman, 29, must surely be thrilled that her rising career has afforded her the opportunity to dwell within walls that once housed one of the world’s biggest performers. Madonna put the three-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot home on the market back in June, when she reportedly purchased two new residences — a $6.5 million Beverly Hills, Calif., mansion, and a swank, $16 million pad in London.
The Material Girl’s rep later denied that Madonna had purchased the home in England, perhaps attempting to deflect rumors that the then-pregnant star would raise her new baby in London, where beau Guy Ritchie resides.
Last week, Britain’s Sun tabloid reported that the 42-year-old pop singer-actress paid $9.9 million for a house in Notting Hill, one of London’s trendiest suburbs.
Madonna, who has a 3-month-old son, Rocco, with film director Ritchie, has said she wants to spend more time in England — and she’s got the fake British accent to prove it. The couple is allegedly planning a holiday season wedding.
