The pop singer-turned- "X Factor" judge used some of that $15 million X Factor money to buy this single-story new build Mediterranean villa. (As Trulia notes, this is not the Malibu mansion they call her "judge's home" on her TV show. )

The estate is on 1.4 acres in the gated Sherwood Country Club and has views of the mountains and golf course. The house has U-shaped bar with adjacent wine room (in addition to the massive wine cellar), a loggia along the dining area, and a kitchen island large enough for Britney to use as a stage, as long as she is careful not to fall into the island's farm-style sink (one of two such sinks in the room).
