BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2013) - Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate's Lisa Byrne is pleased to announce that she is listing the childhood home of Ariana Grande for $2.49 million. The 7,590 square foot property is located in the exclusive Les Jardins subdivision of Boca Raton, and is the home where the Broadway/television/music star began her career after her family purchased it in 2004.
"This was a perfect home to grow up in," said Grande. "I'll always have so many positive memories of it personally and professionally, from our annual Christmas Eve party and family reunions, to a great pool party we hosted when I graduated middle school. I'll never forget standing in the kitchen when I found out I had booked my first Broadway show, or the recording studio next to my room which helped launch my music career. I hope whoever purchases the home will have as many wonderful experiences as I did."
Located in an isolated cul-de-sac, the five-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom home features a pool, hot tub, sauna, and spacious back yard. Inside, there are plenty of entertaining options with a traditional kitchen and living room that both are designed to accommodate large parties, as well as a theater room, recording studio and astronomical observatory, complete with telescope.
"Growing up as a child star, Ariana and her family had a very hectic schedule, but at the end of the day, it was important for them to have a home to go to and cherish their time as a family," said Byrne, a Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate sales associate based in the company's Boca Glades Road office. "They are hoping that another family will have the opportunity to enjoy this home, just as they have."
Grande, who plays 'Cat Valentine' on Nickelodeon's Victorious, and her family are relocating to Los Angeles permanently, as Ariana has just had her own spin-off show, Sam and Cat, announced to begin filming in January 2013. Grande is also signed to Universal Republic Record Label. Her first single, 'Put Your Hearts Up,' debuted at #25 on the Pop Charts and the music video has over 33 million views.
"This house was made for a family that loves to welcome others into their home," said Joan Grande, Ariana's mother. "Some of the happiest moments of my life were in this house; my parents' 80th birthday party, sleepover nights in the theater room watching movies with our kids, and using the observatory to witness a total eclipse. We are so sad to leave this home, but we are so happy for another family to enjoy its warmth and love."
The home is being marketed through the Coldwell Banker Previews International program. For more information on the property, such as pictures and property details, visit: http://property.coldwellbankerpreviews.com/previews/arianagrandehome/overview
