Beyoncé and Jay-Z have acquired the crown jewel of California real estate.
The power couple took the phrase “home sweet home” to a new level, making history with a record-breaking $200 million purchase of California’s most expensive mansion, according to TMZ.
And, according to the outlet’s sources with direct knowledge, the two paid in cash for the 30,000-sq-ft lavish estate that was created by Japanese master architect Tadao Ando, who also created Kanye West’s $57.3 million mansion during his divorce from Kim Kardashian.
Art collector William Bell previously owned the coveted concrete property, which took 15 years to build, reports the outlet.

Despite splurging an eye-popping amount on the decadent property, the unstoppable couple snagged a deal, as the home was initially listed for $295 million.
Beyoncé and Jay Z’s $200 million mansion purchase becomes the country’s second priciest real estate deal, just shy of a record-breaking $238 million New York City apartment sale.
Fans responded to the eye-catching headlines with mixed opinions, with some calling the purchase from Beyoncé, 41, and Jay-Z, 53, over-the-top.
“No person in a normal society should have so much wealth,” tweeted one netizen.
