Miley Cyrus and her family are finally leaving behind their home in suburban Los Angeles.

They bought the house in Toluca Lake — just behind old-time comedian Bob Hope's estate, as a matter of fact — when she was 14 and had recently become the star of a hit TV show, "Hannah Montana" (2006-2011).

But few people are more clearly eager to put away childish things than the Disney-star-turned-twerker, now 22. When she turned 18 she promptly moved out, buying herself a sleek modern in the Hollywood Hills.

Still, growing up isn't easy, especially when you're in the public eye the way Miley Cyrus is. One night in September 2012, a disturbed fan was found in her yard, wielding scissors and reportedly wearing as a necklace a big pink heart that was one of her dogs' chew toys.

The intruder was caught and convicted, but she'd felt unsettled living alone. So she moved back into this Toluca Lake house (pictured here and in our slideshow).

Property records indicate that in November 2012, her parents — country musician Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife, Tish — deeded the house over to her. She was still living there when Rolling Stone profiled her a year later, not long after her explicit performance on MTV's Video Music Awards. (Her parents had moved to a house a block away, the magazine said.)

Now the Cyruses are ready to let the house go, assuming a buyer will pay the right price. The home failed to sell as a so-called pocket listing, according to the Los Angeles Times, and is now on the market for $5,995,000.

It's 8,700 square feet on a 27,000-square-foot flag lot. Indoors, it has black skull wallpaper, cheetah carpeting, a guitar room and huge closets; outside is a skateboard ramp as well as a pool. Neighbors may not be sorry to see the family go: Comedian Steve Carell, for instance, "always gives me the stank-eye because I drive so fast," she confided to Rolling Stone.
