Inside Taylor Swift’s 10,982sqft Home Where She’s Staying With Travis Kelce

Taylor Swift was granted landmark designation for a home she owns that is part of Hollywood history: the $25 million Beverly Hills estate she purchased in 2015 from movie magnate Samuel L. Goldwyn. Taylor Swift has been working to restore the estate, which once housed two generations of the Goldwyn family before Swift purchased it in 2015.

 

 

 

 

The 10,982-square-foot Georgian Revival palace, which includes seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms, will be restored to its former glory. Swift faces both advantages and disadvantages now that her home has been designated as a historic landmark; while she will benefit from significant tax reductions, she will also require approval from the Beverly Hills City Council if she wishes to make any renovations or updates (such as adding a recording studio).

 

 

“We’ve preserved and maintained a lot of the elements, and those that were deteriorating, we’ve replicated,” said Swift’s architect, Monique Schenk, of the property plans.

 

 

The property exudes Old Hollywwood elegance, as evidenced by the magnificent sweeping staircase that dominates the entryway. Swift is the first non-Goldwyn family member to buy the mansion, which was formerly the venue of legendary parties attended by some of Hollywood’s most famous personalities.

 

 

While the decor evokes Old Hollywood, there are some modern comforts quietly incorporated, including this screening room. One of the numerous rooms on the Goldwyn estate, this one features a beautiful antique desk that can be used as a home office.

Swift’s home exudes old-school Hollywood sophistication, from the original hardwood flooring to the triple set of French doors that lead to the rear and the wood-burning fireplace.

 

 

According to paperwork discovered during the landmark designation process, architect Douglas Honnold was commissioned to create the Georgian Revival mansion in the 1930s. The study also found that, due to economic restrictions enacted during the Great Depression, the Goldwyns hired set designers from MGM’s studios to aid with construction, while furniture used in MGM films eventually found its way into the home.

 

 

This covered outdoor patio space is tres chic, and the assessment states that Swift and her architect have been rehabilitating and renovating the exterior, which includes rebuilding wooden decorative components like lattice panels and wooden finials.

Another aspect of the repair is restoring the façade of the pool cabana to its original 1934 style.
