[box] Happy belated birthday to Taylor Swift who has plunked down $3.5 million dollars to lay claim to a relatively modest home in Beverly Hills. No Clampett mansion for this country songbird. The 3 BR/4 bath house is going to be a laid back retreat for the singer whenever she happens to be staying in the LA area.[/box]
This makes the young country star the proud owner of at least 3 multi-million dollar real estate properties at the ripe age of 21.
Just two years ago the then 19 year old Swift shelled out close to $2 million to snag an upscale Nashville penthouse, and earlier this year the pop chart cutie purchased yet another $1million+ home in Tennessee for her parents.
Her latest real estate purchase is located in Franklin Canyon where everyone’s privacy is respected by all residents. The homes are mostly low key in appearance and blend into the wooded landscapes. However one can assume that the interior of Swift’s home will be as elegantly furnished and appointed as any high-end LA estate.
There is a gated driveway (naturally) that brings you to the main house. The driveway also keeps the garage and guest house separated from the main residence. At the present time there is gravel in the driveway, but who knows if Swift will appreciate this ‘noisy’ reminder of her ‘country’ roots.
Can you believe that this LA house was actually described as a Cape Cod Colonial? I mean really-a Cape Cod style house in chic Beverly Hills? Guess this down home, relaxing (East Coast) home design really tugged at Taylor’s heart strings.
The lot is almost 1.5 acres in size which is highly desirable in the Beverly Hills area. In fact 1.5 acres is considered an ‘estate’ in almost any residential area of California.
Swift will enjoy a formal dining room (that includes a bay window stretching from ceiling to floor); a kitchen featuring wood and glass design elements; and a living room with an eye-catching fireplace. There is also a smaller room that has been designed for use as a combination office/library. For entertaining purposes Taylor will be able to make good use of the built in bar area that sits 3.
The covered terrace in the back yard features a fireplace, and there are some brick stairs that offer access to the tree lined hills that are at the rear of the property. All things considered this young country/pop songstress is definitely proving that she is still ‘a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll’. You show the world the true fierceness of girl power, Miss Swift!
