The brainchild behind pop hits like “Baby One More Time” and “I Kissed a Girl” has put his Beverly Hills home on the market.

Swedish songwriter and producer Max Martin listed his 3,800-square-foot home, located in the tony Trousdale Estates neighborhood, for $11.5 million, Variety reported.

Designed by Paul Williams, a trailblazing black architect famous for designing the Beverly Hills Hotel, the one-story pad includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Marmol Radziner recently renovated its splashy, retro interiors.

The residence sits on a 0.63-acre parcel. A swimming pool and outdoor grilling area can be found outside.

Martin paid $3.45 million for the 1950s-built home in April 2011, records show.

Branden and Rayni Williams of Hilton & Hyland have the listing.

Last month, Martin, acting behind an LLC, spent $16.5 million to acquire Drew Barrymore’s former home in the Hollywood Hills. At 8,000 square feet, the purchase reflects a substantial upgrade for the music producer.

A five-time Grammy winner, Martin has worked with many pop stars over the last two decades, including ‘NSync, Britney Spears, the Weeknd and Taylor Swift. [Variety] — Natalie Hoberman
