LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian snag a $3-million Hidden Hills bargain

Country singing star LeAnn Rimes and her husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, have bought a house behind the gates of Hidden Hills for $3 million.

Marketed as a short sale, the property had sold for as much as $5.575 million in 2006.

The Spanish-style house, built in 2005, sits on nearly 2 acres with a swimming pool, a guest house and a barbecue center off a covered patio. Features include beamed ceilings, an arched window in the dining room, a central staircase with Spanish-tile accents, a den, an office, six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, 8,642 square feet of living space and a four-car garage.

Rimes, 30, won Grammys for her album “Blue” and as best new artist in 1996. Her latest studio album is “Lady & Gentlemen.” “Spitfire” is due out this spring. Cibrian, 39, had recurring roles in the 2009-10 seasons of “CSI: Miami” and “Ugly Betty” (2008). The pair co-starred in the TV movie “Northern Lights” (2009).


Alex Galuz of Crescent Realty Corp. handled the transaction, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
