The Hidden Hills estate that pop icon Britney Spears had been leasing for $25,000 a month is back on the market.


Ronald N. Tutor, chief executive of the construction firm Tutor Perini, is listing the equestrian-zoned property at $9.995 million.

In real estate's headier days the sprawling mansion was offered at a high of $18.9 million but was priced at $12.9 million before being taken off the market early last year for the lease. Apparently the fact that Spears slept there adds cachet but no dollar value.

The Tudor-style main house sits on 3.4 acres with guest quarters, two staff apartments, a lake, a swimming pool and a tennis court. There are 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms in more than 19,000 square feet of living space.

Spears, 30, is recognized as one of the top-selling female recording artists of all time. Her hit songs include "…Baby One More Time," "Womanizer" and "Till the World Ends." She released "Femme Fatale," her seventh studio album, last year.

Tutor led a group of investors two years ago in the $663-million purchase of Miramax Films.

The construction magnate's daughter, Tracy T. Maltas of Partners Trust in Brentwood, is the listing agent.

Venice studio spawned Incubus album

Frontman Brandon Boyd of the rock bank Incubus has sold his house in Venice for $2,705,454.

A hotel and notions building when built in 1905, the property retains a storefront appearance. The 3,500-square-foot single-family home features exposed brick walls, pressed-tin ceilings, skylights, a glass-block exterior wall and a rooftop deck. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The 640-square-foot soundproof music studio/guest quarters includes a kitchenette.

Incubus recorded its seventh studio album at the house. "If Not Now, When?" was released last year.

Boyd, who helped form the alternative rock band more than two decades ago, sings, plays guitar and is a percussionist.

He bought the property in 2005 for $2.725 million from actress Maria Bello.

Brad Wiseman of Pinnacle Estate Properties was the listing agent and Negin Dumoulin of LeMarc Investments represented the buyer, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Closing the playbook in Bel-Air

Former UCLA football coach Rick Neuheisel has listed his house in Bel-Air for sale at $4.995 million.

The Cape Cod-inspired traditional, built in 2008, opens to a grand foyer. The 6,000 square feet of living space features wainscoting, coffered ceilings and ocean and city views. Including the master bedroom, which has a sitting area and balcony, there are five bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Neuheisel, 51, was the head football coach at his alma mater from 2008 until last year. Although the Bruins won the first Pac-12 South Division title, Neuheisel was fired after the 6-6 season.

Public records show Neuheisel bought the property in 2008 for $4.5 million.
