Taylor Swift’s new documentary, “Miss Americana,” hit Netflix on Friday.
It provides a behind-the-scenes look at Swift’s own story of her music career and personal life. But what a lot of people don’t know is that, at age 30, Swift owns (way) more real estate than most people her age.
Swift’s collection of homes is arguably as impressive as her singing career. The “Lover” singer has a reported net worth of $US360 million and a huge chunk of that is parked in real estate. Swift owns more than $US81 million worth of real estate across the US – seven properties in four different states, to be exact – according to estimates provided to Business Insider by Trulia.
And she might be adding to that soon. In August, Swift was spotted looking at real estate in London in the $US30 million price range, reported Page Six. Swift reportedly wants to be near her boyfriend of three years, British actor Joe Alwyn.
“Taylor is looking for a grand home in London with two kitchens, so she and Joe can live in privacy and entertain properly,” a source told Page Six. “They have been splitting their time between [his native] London and [her home in] Nashville.”
Let’s walk through Swift’s real estate.
Let’s begin in Nashville, Tennessee, where Swift launched her country music career. It’s only fitting for her to have at least one property there, but she has two.
There’s the 3,240-square-foot condo in Nashville’s Music Row, which she bought at age 20. Swift said in an interview with Vulture, who described the condo’s aesthetic as “whimsically girlie,” that she did the interior design herself.
Worth an estimated $US3 million, the condo boasts industrial-style features and skyline views of midtown Nashville thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows.
In June 2011, she purchased a 1934 Greek Revival estate in Nashville that features a 5,600-square-foot main house with four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Out back there’s a pool and a 2,000-square-foot guesthouse. Trulia estimates it to be worth nearly $US2.5 million – and that’s the least expensive property she owns.
Ever the superstar, Swift also spends time in Los Angeles. In 2018, she sold her Beverly Hills Cape Cod-style cottage of 2,826 square feet for $US4 million and her 2,950-square-foot Beverly Hills home for $US2.65 million.
Surrounded by lush greenery, mountains, a pool, and a sprawling patio area, the mod-style single-story home is light and airy with floor-to-ceiling glass, skylights, a private courtyard, and a 1,000-bottle climate-controlled wine cellar.
But she still has one LA property left – the iconic 1934 Beverly Hills mansion she purchased in September 2015. It was previously home to Hollywood film producer Samuel Goldwyn.
Swift plans to turn the 10,982-square-foot Georgian Revival estate into a historic landmark and restore it to its former status now that the Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission has voted in favour of her request.
Worth nearly $US30 million, it’s the most expensive piece of property in her real estate portfolio, according to Trulia’s estimates.
But Nashville and Beverly Hills aren’t the only places she calls home. Across the coast, Swift owns an estate with seaside views in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, valued at $US6.65 million.
The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion of 12,000 square feet overlooks 700 feet of shoreline with views of Block Island Sound and Montauk Point.
The grapevine whispers that Swift bought the home in April 2013 after breaking up with Conor Kennedy – the famous Kennedy Family Compound is not far. A dream vacation home, it’s the perfect place for parties with her squad. Remember Swift’s famous Fourth of July party in 2016?
But that’s only one of four properties Swift has in the northeast. The rest are all in New York City, specifically in Tribeca – and they’re all on the same block.
New York City
In 2014, Swift put her savvy real estate skills to work, purchasing two adjacent penthouses in a Tribeca building and renovating them into one large duplex penthouse of 8,309 square feet with 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
It features an expansive kitchen where Swift has baked with her squad, a billiards table, and a sweeping staircase, all at an estimated value of $US20.5 million.
In 2017, she became her own neighbour when she purchased a 100-year-old, four-story townhouse next door. At 27 square-feet wide and 5,148 total square feet, it’s filled with a ton of natural light on the first floor (a rarity and a luxury in Manhattan). It also has a home theatre, gym, steam bath, and bar, as well as a guest suite, and is estimated to be worth $US12.5 million.
Most recently in February 2018, she purchased another condo on the second floor of the same building as her penthouse from financier Jeremey Phillips for $US9.75 million in an off-market deal, reported the New York Post. Trulia estimates its value at $US6.9 million.
It’s no wonder Swifties are dubbing Swift’s Tribeca block “Taybeca,” considering she owns roughly $US40 million worth of property there.
Now the question just remains: Where will she move in next?
