Singer Katy Perry is selling her Beverly Hills 5,427 sq ft mansion for a cool $20m asking price.
Katy Perry's daughter Daisy Dove Bloom, two in August, has been growing up close to the ocean in Montecito, Santa Barbara with Archie and Lilbet Cambridge for playmates. Now her parents, Katy Perry and fiance Orlando Bloom are making the move from LA permanent.
The five-bedroom, six-bathroom property sits on more than an acre of land, with a Riveria-esque infinity swimming pool. The European-style villa has an incredible driveway design for creating privacy as it is a quarter-mile-long.
The vine-covered property is listed with Brett Lawyer, of Hilton & Hyland (opens in new tab). It has been carefully designed to sit on the sloping site.
The entrance to the property sets the scene in Katy’s signature vintage style, with a deeply-recessed dusky pink front door, framed perfectly by two original oval windows and carefully-placed silver birch trees, providing shade for visitors.
The kitchen keeps it neat with floor-to-ceiling cupboards providing ample kitchen storage ideas for all those healthy treats. Easy-to-clean marble countertops and a pot filler are practical touches for family life.
The comfortable living room has windows on two sides which flood the space with natural light and bring the natural planting of the garden into constant view. Katy’s quirky touches include an Egyptian bust and a deep yellow textured throw.
The formal dining room with rich on-trend purple velvet chairs and an opulent deep pink marble dining table opens out onto an informal dining terrace with wicker chairs.
The bedroom is a study in understated elegance with teal walls and rich chestnut drapes. The streamlined brass four-poster and gold upholstered easy chairs bring glamor to the space.
An English country house vibe characterizes the library, with deep cornflower blue paneling, a fireplace, and low-level velvet sofas to create the perfect relaxing space enjoyed by Katy and Orlando, both avid readers.
The pool ideas in this home are particularly special. Surrounded by nature, the infinity pool is a perfect place for outdoor exercise and entertaining. The home also includes a gym, but the estate is also near private hiking paths and Franklin Canyon trails for getting away from it all.
