Taylor Swift Wins Historic Designation For Beverly Hills Estate 

Taylor Swift has claimed victory in her brief foray into municipal bureaucracy—winning landmark status for her estate outside of Los Angeles.

The Beverly Hills City Council approved the pop star’s request to make the 1934 home she bought from the heirs of iconic Hollywood producer Samuel Goldwyn a historic city landmark. The five-member council, including the mayor and vice mayor, voted unanimously for the designation at its Tuesday night meeting, the final hurdle for Ms. Swift’s public application.

“I think this is a true community gem and really so thrilled that this will be landmarked and preserved,” said Mayor Lili Bosse, thanking the owner (i.e. Ms. Swift) for restoring the home.

It’s hard to believe owning a historic landmark is the singer’s “Wildest Dream”—but she sure has invested a fair bit of time and money in the project.

Ms. Swift, 27, bought the four-bedroom home from the Goldwyn family in 2015 for $25 million through a trust linked to her managers in Nashville, Tennessee, according to property records, and has spent an undisclosed amount hiring architects to survey and restore the property to its original condition.

Ms. Swift commissioned a historic assessment from architects Barbara Lamprecht and George Taylor Louden on the Goldwyns’ long-time home shortly after purchasing the property. Goldwyn co-founded Goldwyn Pictures, which later merged into Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, or MGM, known by the iconic roaring lion in the intro credits to its films.
