PHOTOS: That is one FUGLY-assed, cluttered, tasteless $12.99 Million estate
Osbourne Estate For $12.99 Million

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/06/osbournes-mans...

The real-estate-loving Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have listed their Cape Cod-inspired mansion for $12.99 million.

Located in the celeb-heavy enclave of Hidden Hills, this six bedroom, ten bathroom home was featured in the June 2011 issue of Architectural Digest.

Designed by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard of Bravo's Million Dollar Decorator, the home features less goth-like elements than one might imagine. In fact, it seems almost like a doll house, with gilded mirrors and a sprawling 2.25 acre lawn. Bullard, a friend of Sharon's, has worked with her before -- most notably on her Sierra Towers pied--terre which he designed on the season premiere of the Bravo series.

The 11,000 square-foot home is accompanied by a guest house. It also includes a pool, a gym and a library. It's only 15 miles away from the Osbournes' Malibu home, which they just sold. Perhaps between Ozzy's European tour and Sharon's stints on The Talk and America's Got Talent, they're making enough money for an upgrade.

1. It is cluttered, but I think I can make it work for me.

2. Honestly, I kinda like it.
I'm not really picturing Ozzy on that powder blue sofa, though.

To each his own, I suppose.

:hi:

4. I'd lose the dolls and the fru-fru pillows first
chandeliers are too much for me too. Trying to look expensive just makes stuff tacky, imho.

It reminds me of pages from magazines my mom used to get in the 80's.

15. Maybe 5 or 6 would do, if the exhaust fans are efficient
The huge pillows on the sofa are a nice touch. Discourage anyone from sitting.

8. I've never understood why a house needs more bathrooms than bedrooms...
...as though it were some kind of major selling point.

Space and color are always good, in my book, but those ceiling beams are terrible feng shui. So are all those bathrooms, come to think of it.

9. Infinite orders of magnitude better taste than Limbaugh's or Beck's digs.

13. How much did they pay AD to get listed?
Gaaaahh!!

And the place is smaller than it looks - Amazing how an extreme wide angle lens can make any room look bigger.

16. I loved Architectural Digest as a kid...
So many of the homes depicted of that time were very modern, cutting edge and borderline futuristic...It was fun to dream as a kid living in one of those places someday...

A couple of years ago, I started up a new subscription to AD, the first time I'd seen it regularly since the 1980s...Instead of all the stuff of kid's dreams, 90 percent of the homes looked EXACTLY like the one in the OP -- No matter the country, owner, designer, or supposed style motif...
