Taylor Swift Plunks Down $25 Million Cash for Beverly Hills Estate (EXCLUSIVE)

We’ve now heard from several trusted canaries who include Our Fairy Godmother in Bel-Air and the inestimable real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak — who says she’ll swear on an ocean of Dom Perignon, that it was famously property-mad pop-country crossover superstar Taylor Swift who recently shelled out $25 million in cold hard cash for the Tinseltown pedigreed Samuel Goldywn estate in Beverly Hills. The nearly two-acre spread — elegant, expansive, and well maintained but in need of some sprucing — includes a nearly 11,000-square-foot main house with six bedrooms and at least five bathrooms plus a two-room guest apartment above the garage, extensive gardens, sunken tennis court, swimming pool, and pool house with kitchenette.

Just 25 years old with a breathtaking income — Forbes estimates she hauled in $80 million between June 2014 and June 2015 — the platinum selling phenom presides over an expanding portfolio of increasingly posh residential properties that all together, by our rudimentary calculation, cost the seven-time Grammy winner more than $70 million. Swift already owns a secluded Beverly Hills estate that she picked up in 2011 for $3.55 million and her Nashville holdings include a 4,000-plus-square-foot duplex penthouse bought in 2009 for nearly $2 million and a stately Greek Revival residence on almost six acres acquired in 2011 for $2.5 million. As Swift’s fame and earnings grew so did the size and price of the residences she bought. In the spring of 2013, a year Forbes estimated she raked in an estimated $55 million, she shoveled out $17.75 million for Watch Hill, a 12,000-square-foot seaside spread in Westerly, R.I. And last year, with an income Forbes estimated at around $64 million, she paid “Lord of the Rings” filmmaker Peter Jackson $20 million for a suburban mansion-sized, two-unit duplex penthouse in lower Manhattan that has nine bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, a 1,200-square-foot living/dining room, and more than 2,000 square feet of wraparound terraces.
