Rihanna Flips West Hollywood Villa in Just Three Months (EXCLUSIVE)

Location:
West Hollywood, Calif.
Price:
$2.85 million
Size:
2,651 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms plus 1-bed/1.5-bathroom poolside cabana and guesthouse

In August, according to two supremely well-connected informants, international pop superstar Rihanna surreptitiously shelled out $2.75 million for a Spanish-modern villa in a prime West Hollywood neighborhood that she’s lickety-split flipped back on the market less than three months later at $2.85 million.

Concealed behind secured gates and a mature hedge, the just over 2,600-square-foot two-story main house has four en suite bedrooms plus a den/office and 4.5 bathrooms. A detached two-story structure beyond the deck-girdled swimming pool in the courtyard-style backyard contains a concrete-floored lounge that’s roomy enough to park a car inside, a half bathroom, a kitchenette/dining area with accordion-fold glass doors that open to a dining terrace and, upstairs, an en suite guest or staff bedroom.

A gravel courtyard garden planted with succulents leads to the front door that opens directly into a loft-like living/dining area and a gleaming all-white kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances. Two guest bedrooms and a den on the main floor open through French doors to the backyard, while two bedrooms on the upper floor include a master suite replete with vaulted ceiling, fitted walk-in closet, spa-style bathroom and private balcony with backyard overlook.

The industry-award-hoovering “Umbrella” singer, with eight Grammys and a dozen American Music Awards, has cut a thick real estate streak across Los Angeles the past couple of years. In the fall of 2014 she coughed up $5.45 million for a three-bedroom and four-bath condo at the swanky Century building in Century City, the following year she paid $925,000 for a 2,000-square-foot condo in a nearby high-rise along the Wilshire Corridor, and earlier this year she splashed out $6.8 million for a six-bedroom and 10-bathroom contemporary Mediterranean mansion in the foothills above Hollywood.
