Taylor Swift wants her home to be listed as historic landmark
Singer Taylor Swift reportedly wants her $25 million-worth Beverly Hills mansion to be listed as a historic landmark.
The ‘Shake it off’ hitmaker has been restoring her home, which was formerly owned by movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn has six-bedroom and five-bath abode, reported Us magazine.
Swift, who purchased the 10,982-square-foot property for USD 25 million in September 2015, wants to ensure the home is “preserved.”
The estate, which is located at 1200 Laurel Lane in Beverly Hills, was built in 1934, when Goldwyn commissioned architect Douglas Honnold. The historic house also features a dining room, a movie theater, a library, a gym, a swimming pool and a pool house.
According to Mansion Global, an international luxury real estate listings site, Swift has got a seal of approval by the Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commision. On January 11, five members of the organization voted in favour of Swift’s request to turn her new home.
The Beverly Hills City Council will vote to finalize the historic designation at an upcoming, still-unscheduled ruling, but Swift’s win with the Heritage Commission is considered a major first step, aceshowbiz.com reported.
“This is one of the great estates in this city, and it’s very important to the history of the city. And I’m thrilled that whoever the owner is, they’ve found it important to keep this house and spend the money to restore it because it’s no small thing to do,” said Noah Furie, Vice Chairperson of the Heritage Commission.
