Jay Z and Beyonce purchased a 30,000-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles’ Bel Air neighborhood for $88 million.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the power couple is getting a mortgage of $52.8 million for their $88 million purchase of a newly built, 30,000-square-foot mansion. The deal is the most expensive home sale of the year in LA, topping an $85 million sale in Malibu. Forbes recently declared the couple as billionaires, with a net worth of $1.16 billion.
The 1.88 acre property included a more than 9,000 sq. ft. Colonial Revival mansion when it was last purchased for $15 million in 2013. The buyer immediately had the historic home torn down and replaced with the “open and airy” mansion that sits in its place.
Jay Z and Beyonce’s ultra-modern, hillside mansion boasts eight bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, bulletproof windows, a 15-car garage, staff quarters, four pools, and a basketball court, among other things. Altogether, there are six structures on the property with around a combined 30,000 sq. ft. of living space. The estate is a smart home that includes all of the latest technological features to ensure safety and convenience. (All it takes is the touch of a button to open the glass walls. And, of course, everything sits behind massive iron gates.
