Taylor Swift’s new Beverly Hills mansion has some serious style. It also has a Hollywood pedigree befitting its $25 million price tag.
This 1930s-era home was previously owned by Samuel Goldwyn (who died in 1974) and his family, the same Goldwyn who put the “G” in MGM. The home, which stayed in the Goldwyn family for two generations, was originally listed for $27.995 million, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. So it seems Swift got a good deal on the two-acre property.
Swift, originally a country singer, has recently taken over the pop world. Her most recent album, “1989,” released a year ago, has produced numerous hits including “Bad Blood,” which won an MTV Video of the Year award. She released four other albums previously and has won the Country Music Association’s “Entertainer of the Year” award in 2011 and 2009.
She was the youngest person to win that award, and she has also gone on to win many Grammys, including album of the year for her 2010 release “Fearless.” Originally from Pennsylvania, she and her family moved to Nashville when she was only 14 to pursue a music career. Other hit records include “You Belong With Me,” “Love Story,” “22” and “Shake It Off.”
The 10,892-square-foot mansion has seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. Other features include a paneled 35mm screening room, a brick terrace with an immaculately landscaped back yard, pool, tennis court and guesthouse. However, arguably the best feature is the sweeping city views from the second-floor master bedroom veranda.
With her growing popularity, Swift is apparently investing more of her musical fortune into high-end real estate. Swift has homes in Manhattan, Nashville, Rhode Island and Massachusetts; she has bought and sold other properties in Beverly Hills. But the former Goldwyn property is her most expensive real estate buy to date. Her last condo purchase in Manhattan was $20 million.
“This outstanding home speaks of privileged traditions and glittering entertainment, intimate soirees and lavish celebrations,” according to the listing.
The home’s architectural style seems to be in keeping with Swift’s previous California purchases. She seems to prefer the breezy yet traditional vibe in her West Coast abodes.
