Clap along if you feel like flipping houses is what you want to do. Pharrell Williams has reportedly purchased Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills home for $15.6 million.
First listed for $17 million in February, the home spans 17,475 square feet and was built in 1992, according to Trulia. The property is located on a hilltop spanning four acres that overlooks the canyons and city lights, and the long driveway culminates in a sprawling motor court that can fit a whopping 30 cars. When guests do finally make it to the front door, they are greeted by massive glass walls around the entire facade, which are complemented by steel beams and sloping ceilings.
Inside, there are 10 bedrooms, 11 baths, and unique features like overlapping stone marble stairs and pyramid-shaped skylights. Outside, there is a koi pond and stream, resort-style swimming pool with a slide and grotto, and professional-quality tennis courts, as well as an outdoor dining terrace; the second floor of the home features connecting balconies.
When Perry listed the home, it was reported that the director purchased the property purely as an investment opportunity and made few, if any, renovations. He was hoping that the right buyer would come along, and it seems Perry has met his match in the 45-year-old multi-hyphenate. His first order of business in his new home might just be to install a safe – Williams recently locked his latest recording in a state-of-the-art safe that won’t be opened for 100 years. Let’s see if Pharrell calls the Beverly Hills mansion his home for the next century.
