The Weeknd dropped $70 million on a recently renovated mansion located in the Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles, making it one of the largest deals closed in the city this year, The Wall Street Journal reports.
The mansion’s previous owners, Dutch media entrepreneur Reinout Oerlemans and his wife Danielle, allegedly had no intention of selling their 33,000-square-foot home when they were approached by real estate agents, Rayni and Branden Williams.
According to the outlet, the real estate agents persuaded the couple to sell their home.
The Oerlemans sold the property in an off-market deal to The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye.
Details on The Weeknd’s new Bel Air mansion
Sitting on 1.6 acres, the property overlooks the prestigious Bel-Air Country Club.
The 33,000-square-foot mansion features nine bedrooms, as well as many amenities including a sports court, a spa with a sauna, a hammam, an indoor pool, an outdoor infinity pool with a waterfall, a movie theater, and a gym.
Additionally, the property boasts a music studio that will likely get a lot of use out of the “Can’t Feel My Face” singer.
Described as both dramatic and contemporary, the musician’s industrial home has a Mediterranean feel and boasts double gates that create a feeling of seclusion from the outside world.
The home features a number of classic touches, including French doors, various extravagant staircases, a terrace, and a grand pond.
