Kara DioGuardi is trying to rent out her massive Studio City, Calif., mansion ... for $45,000 a month!
That's what a lot of people make in a year! Yowza.
The 7,600 square-foot home features five bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a 20-foot-high chimney/fireplace combo, a grand piano (for singer/songwriter Kara, of course), a sauna, an art studio (Kara's hubby is an artist), fountains, balconies and an infinity pool.
We're guessing Kara's looking to rent because she's so busy! The singer/songwriter and former American Idol judge is currently making her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago through October 30.
She's also a judge on Bravo's songwriting competition show Platinum Hit. In case you've forgotten, Kara was a well-respected songwriter before her American Idol days. She wrote, for example, "Ain't No Other Man" for Christina Aguilera, "Pieces of Me" for Ashlee Simpson and "Sober" for Pink.
See all the pics of Kara's stunning black-and-white home below!
