Taylor Swift’s Beverly Hills Mansion Is Now Officially a Historic City Landmark

Taylor Swift is officially historic. Well, at least her Beverly Hills mansion is.

On Tuesday evening, the five-member Beverly Hills City Council approved Swift’s request to designate her home in Los Angeles as a historic city landmark. It was a swift and unanimous vote.

Swift bought the 11,000-square-foot, four-bedroom estate from the heirs of Hollywood producer Samuel Goldwyn — co-founder of Goldwyn Pictures, which later became MGM — in 2015 for $25 million, according to property records. The house, originally built in 1934, sits just behind the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“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 while thanking Swift and her team for restoring the home, according to Mansion Global.

Historic features of the home include a tennis court, pool, a curved patio sitting area and stepped terraces, which have all gone virtually untouched since the 1930s. According to Curbed LA, the mansion allegedly hosted a plethora of Hollywood elite including Marlene Dietrich, Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, and Frank Capra. Beyond the outdoor amenities, the home also includes a library, card room, a home theater with 35mm projection, and staff lodging.

“Really when this project’s done, hopefully this year sometime soon, it’s going to be really spectacular,” Monique Schenk, an architect working on the project, said at the city council meeting. “We’ve preserved and maintained a lot of the elements and those that were deteriorating, we’ve replicated.”
