Why Kelly Clarkson is selling her LA estate

First year American Idol winner in 2002, Kelly Clarkson has not only crafted a stellar award-winning career, but over the last 18 years her creativity has taken on a life of its own.

While Clarkson is bunkered down at her mansion in Tennesse, enjoying the wide open spaces and peacefulness of their ranch, she and manager-husband Brandon Blackstock have decided to sell their California estate, with an asking price of $AU 15.26 million ($US 9.995 million), according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.

The layout also offers a number of private getaway spaces, both indoors and out, that provide spots for quiet meditation or to kick back and read a book.

Recreation is easy to find, whether it is in the game room with its own kitchenette for snacks or the large pool deck with dining area near the kitchen or the twin bars and outdoor kitchen with fireplace and lots of space for sun loungers.
