Despite already owning homes in Nashville, New York, and Rhode Island, Taylor Swift had one more locale to add to her real estate repertoire: Beverly Hills!
Located in the ritzy Bel-Air neighbourhood, Swift’s new two-acre estate features a 10,982 square-foot Georgian Revival home with seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms. The property includes a library, card room, gym, a theatre, extensive gardens, sunken tennis court, a swimming pool, and an accompanying pool house with kitchenette.
Tay’s new home also features a guest suite with a private entrance on the home’s main level, as well as a guest apartment above the garage – perfect for hosting any member of her squad!
Built in the 1930s, the lavish estate was originally commissioned by Samuel Goldwyn (the ‘G’ of MGM Studios) and was later passed down to his now-deceased son. In recognition of Goldwyn’s contributions to the film industry, Swift, after restoring the home to its original 1934 grandeur, was successful in attaining for the home “landmark” status to preserve it for future generations. Her application was approved by both the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission and the Beverly Hills City Council.
The property was a destination for many old Hollywood stars like Clark Gable and Charlie Chaplin, back when it was in the hands of its original owner, Goldwyn.
The “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” singer previously refuted reports she had invested in the property, tweeting:
But new documents show the title to the estate changed hands from the seller to a company under Taylor’s Nashville address as of Oct. 1, 2015, for a whopping $27,995,000.
