Taylor Swift’s Beverly Hills home has just become a landmark.
Swift purchased the home in 2015 for $25 million and quickly began a meticulous restoration on the four-bedroom property. As reports confirmed, the singer bought the mansion from the family of famed Hollywood producer Samuel Goldwyn.
“I think this is a true community gem and really so thrilled that this will be landmarked and preserved,” said Mayor Lili Bosse, as reported by Mansion Global.
Mayor Bosse also thanked Swift for her work on the home during the Beverly Hills City Council meeting.
Samuel Goldwyn was commonly known as the “G” in MGM
According to a report by Curbed LA, Goldwyn began construction on the home in 1934 and remained at the property until his death in 1974. The home, which has been virtually untouched since it was built, boasts a tennis court, pool, and stepped terraces.
The report by Mansion Global revealed Goldwyn hired architect Douglas Honnold to build the Georgian Revival house. He then cut costs by enlisting set designers from various MGM productions for assistance with the construction of the estate.
Taylor Swift intended to restore the home to its original state
During the Beverly Hills City Council meeting, architect Monique Schenk said workers had carefully removed vines from the front of Swift’s property during construction. However, in an effort to replicate the home’s original condition, they replaced the plants once the exterior project was complete.
“It’s blooming and it’s really exciting to see that,” Schenk said.
Architects also preserved the moldings of an interior staircase and installed a slate-like roof with copper gutters.
“Really when this project’s done, hopefully this year sometime soon, it’s going to be really spectacular,” Schenk added. “We’ve preserved and maintained a lot of the elements and those that were deteriorating, we’ve replicated.”
Taylor Swift’s rep declined to comment on her home renovation.
