Madonna has sold her mansion in Beverly Hills for $19.5 million, The Times has confirmed.

The property was first marketed last year as a pocket listing and this year appeared on the Multiple Listing Service priced at $22.5 million.

During her nearly decade of ownership, the pop icon rebuilt and expanded the estate, completing it in 2010. The discrete MLS listing showed only an aerial view, and agents and their clients who toured the home were among the few who have had a look inside.

The gabled-roofed behemoth sits behind gates on 1.25 acres of landscaped grounds. The compound, accessed by a 500-foot tree-lined driveway, includes a nine-bedroom main house, two guesthouses, a resort-size swimming pool and a tennis court. There is a two-story dining room, a gym, a theater/screening room, an art studio, a bar and 17,000 square feet of living space.

The singer-songwriter, 55, is one of the best-selling female recording artists of all time. Among her hit songs are “Vogue,” “Borderline” and “Material Girl.”

She bought the property in 2003 for $12 million, according to Times archives.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency and Barry Peele of Sotheby’s International Real Estate were the listing agents. Ben Bacal, also of Sotheby’s International Real Estate, represented the buyer.
