Nothing But Drag: RuPaul Just Bought a $13.7-Million Mansion That is Unapologetically Grand
When you’re a world-famous drag sensation, a four-time Emmy winner, and one of the most influential icons of this generation, you shouldn’t settle for anything less, especially if you’re the one and only RuPaul. Of course, this queen will never be OK with just OK, so when he added a new property to his impressive real estate portfolio, oh boy did he slay with a neoclassic European-style house he got for $13.7 million.
Neoclassic but Rococo
Sitting on a first-class street in an already A-lister-infested Coldwater Canyon in Beverly Hills, the mansion that was priced $17 million in March, spans to more than 10,300 sq ft on a half-an-acre area.
Though the house by form is a neoclassic, intricate and fanciful ornaments resembling the Rococo are evident in the place. If you feed on dramatic flares, then this castle-like home is your buffet, with its four-columned façade paired with arched, heavily ornate windows (palace in Versailles would claim it as its own) and made even more European with the French doors in the mix — you’ll think the place is a royal residence fit for the international drag queen.
However, the gobble-all-you-can dramatic flares don’t end at the exterior. Upon reaching the foyer of this palace, you’ll be astounded of the double-height ceilings, marbled grand staircase with elaborate railings — perfect for making an extra entrance — and of course, the marbled black-and-white floors with an in-laid pattern.
Making the lobby more lavish is a pair of Corinthian pilasters bordering the arched doorway that leads to what seems to be a living area. These pilasters appeared to be a common ornate with the interior but the one in the anteroom is made from black marble.
The formal living space is bright, light, and airy with the abundance of arched windows (another common theme in the house) above white French doors. Ceilings are also decorated with fine wall moldings. Details are scattered around the house – there are intricate carvings on the fireplace and other specific furnishings.
