Britney Spears was just a normal kid.
The singer grew up in Kentwood, La. at 14550 Greenlaw Church Road in a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom ranch house, which sold this week for $275,000, according to Redfin.
The house has green striped wallpaper, 70’s-style wood paneling, ceiling fans, granite countertops, a wood-burning fireplace and a two-car garage, according to the listing.
It’s the same home that was featured in Rolling Stone’s 1999 feature “Inside the Heart and Mind (and Bedroom) of Britney.” According to the feature, the hallways were lined with photos, and her “tiny” bedroom was “awash in floral patterns and frills” with throw cushions and pale-faced dolls. But when she was home, Spears would sleep in her mother’s bed, out of fear from fans stalking her at home, journalist Steven Daly wrote.
The only unusual thing about the property built in 1979 is a metal building studio “that has endless possibilities from a dance studio or office area,” according to the listing. The space served as a local gym called Total Fitness by Jamie, according to Dirt.
The two-acre property also has two metal storage buildings, one spanning 2,400 square feet and the other at 500 square feet, according to the listing.
The seller of the 2,299-square-foot brick home was none other than Spears’s father, James (more widely known as Jamie), when it was listed for $289,000 in June 2020, according to property records.
James Spears’ name has been attached to the house since at least 1988, according to property records. He has lived at the house since his divorce from Britney’s mother, Lynne, in 2002, according to Dirt. Listing sites show a sale in December 2017, but it appears to be an internal title transfer since James’s name is on both sides of the transaction, property records show.
The house sold to an unknown buyer on February 5, according to Redfin, the same day the New York Times released the documentary “Framing Britney Spears” on FX and Hulu. Meanwhile, Britney lives in a $7.4 million mansion, the Post previously reported.
The house was offered “fully furnished,” so the buyer also inherited the Spears’ furniture, according to the listing — minus Britney’s bedroom furniture, most of which was donated to Kentwood Historical and Cultural Museum, according to Dirt.
Given the Spears connection, the sale was a steal — the house went for about the same price per square foot as other homes in the area, according to Redfin.
