Selena Gomez Spent $4.9M For This Mega-Mansion Custom-Built By Tom Petty
Singer-actress Selena Gomez has been quite busy these days. She recently dropped her most recent album titled Rare, five years after her last album. Aside from that, she also recently dropped $4.9 million for a megamansion in Encino that used to belong to the late American singer-songwriter, Tom Petty.
The 11,483 square-foot palatial home was custom-built by Petty along with his first wife, Jane Benyo. Before they constructed the now 6-bedroom, 10-bathroom home, there was a Tudor-styled mansion in its place that was destroyed by a fire set by an arsonist.
The uniqueness of the property doesn’t stop at its backstory, though. The multiple stories house an interesting number of hidden passageways and even secret panic rooms. The 0.87-acre property is hidden from the street through a long gated driveway at the tip of the cul-de-sac. It’s quite perfect for a paparazzi-prone celebrity like the Rare singer with the privacy and extra security it offers.
Inside the mansion is a skylight-topped living area with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace that goes all the way through the upstairs balcony up until the slanted ceiling. Beyond the living room is a rustic kitchen decked with wood-beamed ceilings and whitewashed bricks. Behind the fireplace of the living area is a sweeping staircase that leads to the upper floor.
The first floor has interconnected rooms such as the grand master suite, a family room, a music studio, and a sunken media room complete with a wet bar and a space for a drum set.
The second floor of the luxe house houses a second master suite and several guest bedrooms. The Lose You to Love Me singer may not have to leave that particular floor because it also has a second kitchen, a yoga studio, a massage room, and a gym.
A large swimming pool dominates the outdoor space out on the back. Making the space perfect for entertaining are its outdoor kitchen and gorgeous covered loggia. Adding extra privacy are the tall trees surrounding the perimeter in the backyard.
This estate is not the only one in Gomez’s real estate portfolio. The 27-year-old also owns two other homes in the Los Angeles area. She has a property in Studio City that she bought in 2017 for $2.2 million.
The second one is a Woodland Hills home worth $1.7 million that serves as the current residence of her mother and stepfather. She also used to own another sprawling mansion—a Fort Worth estate that spans 10,016 square feet. Gomez was able to sell it for $2.7 million in late 2018 after several years on the market.
