Back in March, the storied Goldwyn family estate in Beverly Hills hit the market for $39 million. Earlier this month, it was reported that the property commissioned by legendary film producer Samuel Goldwyn had sold to a mystery buyer. Now multiple sources are reporting that the buyer was none other than Taylor Swift. The country crooner turned pop princess paid $25 million in CASH for the property.
Located right behind the Beverly Hills Hotel, the just under two-acre property has a long history of playing host to Hollywood royalty. The Goldwyn estate's famous guests have included Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich, and Charlie Chaplin. The property was handed to Samuel Goldwyn Jr. from his father, Samuel Goldwyn, Sr. Goldwyn Jr. passed away in January and his family decided to end the property's Goldwyn era and put it on the market.
Swift, 25, earned $80 million dollars for a year's work in 2015. The platinum-selling artist has purchased an impressive portfolio of properties over the last four years. She already owns a secluded Beverly Hills estate that she bought for $3.5 million in 2011. She has two Nashville area properties – a more than 4,000 square foot penthouse she bought for $2 million in 2009 and a Greek Revival home on six acres she purchased in 2011 for $2.5 million. In the spring of 2013, she paid $17.75 million for a 12,000 square foot seaside estate in Westerly, Rhode Island. In 2014, Swift bought a two unit duplex penthouse in lower Manhattan from Lord of the Rings filmmaker Peter Jackson for $20 million. Her NYC pad has nine bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, a 1,200 square foot living/dining room area, and more than 2,000 square feet of wraparound terraces.
The Goldwyn Estate is the latest purchase of Taylor Swift's high-end real estate holdings. Swift's new Beverly Hills home has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a library, a theatre (of course, given the pedigree of the place), a card room, a guest suite with a separate entrance, staff quarters above the garage, gardens, terraces, lawns, a lighted tennis court, and a pool with a pool house. It sounds like the perfect crash pad for Taylor and her merry band of girlfriends. Taylor Swift has a net worth of $240 million.
