Real Estate Porn: Mariah Carey Beach House Edition

By Elizabeth Lancaster @lizzydl

While you were busy climbing the stairs of your 5th floor walkup and tap dancing around critters after a long day of work, Mariah Carey has been dealing with her own (very different) real estate problems.

The ultimate diva and hubby Nick Cannon are saying goodbye to the $5.5 million beach house (above) in Bahamas they call “Sea Lily” (because “the beach house” is so common). On a private island named Windermere, the oceanfront estate is surrounded by other beach houses with “well known owners.”

While Sea Lily doesn’t seem too shabby to us, Mariah and Nick are clearly in the market for an upgrade, something their posh summer rental – with almost double the space and triple the value of Sea Lily – in the Hamptons can attest.

The $15 million home comes complete with movie theatre and pool side cabanas. Cannon recently Instagrammed a photo of the estate (above) and it looks marvelous, though he was sure to add, “When u have kids you gotta put up a fence” around the pool. Maybe they wanted a change in scenery, maybe weather or perhaps Cannon wanted to be just a short train ride away from his office here in the Viacom building with MTV News!
