Usher had first put the property on sale for $1.8 million in 2008, temporarily took it off the market and retried his luck with a starting price of $2.48 million last year.

 

A buyer finally purchased the home on July 2 for $1.5 million, the Blast reported.

The singer-songwriter also recently listed his $4.2 million Spanish-style urban home in Los Angeles, securely tucked in a gated community near the Sunset Strip.

In April, the L.A. home was burglarized and more than $820,000 worth of jewelry and cash was stolen, according to Architectural Digest. The house was on the market at the time.

Neither Usher nor his estranged wife, Grace Miguel, were home during the incident.

He currently maintains his 10,823-square-foot mansion in Alpharetta’s idyllic Country Club of the South.
