From Elton John to Usher, many well-known musical artists already call Buckhead home. A recent home purchase by a management company with direct ties to Mariah Carey means that another big star may be coming to town!
The property off of Davis Drive is technically just across the line in the Sandy Springs – ITP neighborhood. With the ongoing movement to shift city boundaries around, it might make sense to annex the artist behind the all-time greatest rendition of “All I want for Christmas” and garner a few more votes. The 1992-built home is a traditional Georgian-style with a grand columned entrance and over 16,000 square feet of living space. The gated 4.2-acre hilltop property features a guest house, pool, and tennis court.
The home sold off-market on November 23, 2021 for $5,650,000 to The Mirage Real Estate Trust, with Lester Knispel signing as trustee. Lester Knispel is one of the top business managers to stars such as Shaquille O’Neal, the Kardashians, Sylvester Stallone, and more.
Mariah Carey is the CEO of Mirage Entertainment Inc, which has an office on Ventura Boulevard, in Woodland Hills, CA. This is the same mailing address listed on the deed transfer in Fulton County for the similarly-named Mirage Real Estate Trust, the buyer of the property on Davis Drive.
We reached out to reps for Carey and Knispel to confirm her purchase and they have not provided comment. Mariah Carey’s unbelievable vocal skills have helped make her the 2nd best-selling female artist of all time, only Madonna has sold more albums. Carey has reportedly been living in a Beverly Hills home rented from a Saudi royal since 2018. She also owns a triplex in NYC. Welcome to the neighborhood MC! You will love it here.
