Joe and Tina Simpson’s home was listed for sale at the beginning of October. By mid-October, they announced their divorce. By late October, the Encino, CA home had already received a price cut of $400,000.
Parents of singers Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, Joe and Tina bought the home in 2001 for $2.1 million, according to property records. The two are originally from Texas, but as their daughters’ fame grew, they took on managerial roles and moved to Hollywood.
Their Encino home is described as “storybook country English,” complete with a copper turret entry and stone exterior. The 1.5-acre grounds include a pool and spa with grotto waterfall, putting green, fireplace and fire pit, and sports court — not to mention a children’s play structure for the Simpsons’ two grandchildren.
Inside, the home includes formal living spaces with vaulted ceilings and luxury detailing. A spiral staircase leads to 6 bedrooms, three of which are suites. The house also includes a home theater, office and gourmet kitchen with Viking appliances.
