Taylor Swift’s $25 million Beverly Hills pad is now officially a historic landmark. The Beverly Hills City Council voted Tuesday night on the designation.

The 11,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, five-bath estate perched behind the Beverly Hills Hotel was built by MGM co-founder Samuel Goldwyn in 1934, and includes a tennis court, a home theater capable of projecting in 35mm, a library, and staff lodging, notes Travel + Leisure.

“I think this is a true community gem and really so thrilled that this will be landmarked and preserved,” Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse said at Tuesday’s meeting, notes Mansion Global.

“Really when this project’s done, hopefully this year sometime soon, it’s going to be really spectacular,” Monique Schenk, the architect overseeing the home’s restoration, said at a Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission meeting in January. “We’ve preserved and maintained a lot of the elements and those that were deteriorating, we’ve replicated.”

As People adds, winning historical designation does entail that all future construction on the house will require approval by the city. However, landmarking does mean lower taxes.
