There’s nothing “Foolish” about this deal.
Grammy Award winning singer and actress Ashanti is moving out and the entertainer is probably singing a “Happy” tune because she’s about to pocket a cool $2.2 million for her spacious Old Westbury mansion.
The Glen Cove native’s six-bedroom, 5.5 bathroom brick colonial has a sale pending, according to OneKey® MLS and Realtor.com. Built in 1999, the home features 5,000 square feet of living space, high ceilings throughout, a three-car garage and two fireplaces; the property’s leafy backyard boasts a beautiful, free form in-ground pool.

The Saint Andrews Court property officially went on the market last July. It is listed by Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
Ashanti, whose given name is Ashanti Shequoiya Douglas, purchased the home in 2003, at the height of her popularity, when she was topping the charts collaborating on “What’s Luv” with Fat Joe and “Always on Time” with Ja Rule, as well as rolling out her acclaimed debit album, “Ashanti.” A member of Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, she still performs.
