Rumor Has It Taylor Swift Bought The Famous Goldwyn Estate For $25 Million... In CASH
Taylor Swift probably has more money than is even fathomable to us commoners, so it's not surprising that the 25-year-old superstar has reportedly purchased a Beverly Hills estate. With cash.
With $25 million in cash.
According to Variety, Swift made $80 million between June 2014 and June 2015, and she already owns another Beverly Hills estate. And two Nashville homes. And a NYC home. And a Rhode Island home. None of these homes are homes like your home, they are fantasy dream world homes that the rest of us will only glimpse through aerial views on the internet. And these above photos, via Curbed.
This latest acquisition (which Variety exclusively reported on via a few "trusted" sources) is the Goldwyn Estate, built in the 1930s for film producer Samuel Goldwyn—you can call him the "G" in MGM. The home includes 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, one Beyonce, a library, a card room, a closet of feathers, a theater with 35mm projection, Ryan Adams eternally covering 1989 in the parlor, a guest suite with a private entrance, a Nelly, staff lodging above the garage, Baby Haim, terraces, gardens where flowers never die, an oven that is always baking cookies, 11,000 square feet, a lighted tennis court, one tiny fawn, a pool with pool house, a room filled with mirrors and an overwhelming sense that everything is good and fine in the world, and lawns, plural.
The property went on the market in March, with an asking price of $39 million, when Variety noted that Mr. Goldwyn "regularly entertained a slew of Golden Age stars at the estate including Cole Porter, Frank Capra, Clark Gable, Bette Davis and Charlie Chaplin." Expect the 2015-version of that from Swift, if she did indeed buy it—she seems to be denying the rumor on Twitter:
