Hip-hop power couple Jay-z and Beyoncé, who have a long history with the westside rental market, became new L.A homeowners in August with the purchase of a newly built mansion on Cuesta Way.
The modern showplace sits behind walls and gates and comprises six structures with about 30,000 square feet of living space. Features of the monolithic-vibe compound include spa and wellness facilities, a media room, panoramic views, a garage space with space for 15 vehicles, staff quarters, four outdoor swimming pools and probably also a bank, church, school and post office . The windows and pocketing glass walls are bulletproof.
The property, developed by Dean Mckillen, was never publicly offered for sale but carried an asking price of $135 million. The size of the carter’s new home is no joke: it consists of six “structures” and boasts 30,000 square feet of interior space and an additional 10,000 square feet of outdoor space.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s Mansion in Bel-Air
The happy family of five, Blue Ivy, Rumi, Sir Carter and their famous parents, Jay-Z and Beyoncé live in the ritzy neighborhood of Bel-air, Los Angeles, in the foothills of the Santa Monica mountains which is every bit as magical as it sounds. Their home–or should we say modern-day palace –is made from steel, glass, and exquisite marbled limestone.
Before moving in, they spent an additional $750,000 on some renovations including a backup generator and an added living area under one of the pools. The estate spans over 1.8 acres and features eight bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, a spa, a standalone staff quarters, four pools, a home theatre ( of course), a 15-car garage, and a basketball court!
The couple is fiercely protective about their lives and kids so it makes sense that the house sits behind massive iron gates and is protected with state-of-the-art security systems and bulletproof windows. It looks like when it comes to privacy, the Knowles-Carter family means business.
As one can imagine, everything is larger than life at the Bel-Air mansion. From the dramatic staircase made from Italian limestone and dark wood to the expansive patios and terraces, from the four outdoor pools to the almost two-acre garden, everything screams opulence! In all, there are six structures on the property with a combined living space of 30,000sq.ft. The estate is truly fit for the king and queen of the music world!
The couple has a keen eye for art and has filled their home with masterpieces that reflect their style and personality. According to Artspace, the “Halo” singer loves the work of Ethiopian-American artist Awol Erizku, Kara Walker, and Kerry James Marshall. They also own pieces by Richard Prince, David Hammons, and Laurie Simmons.
