International pop star Selena Gomez just snatched up a $4.9 million mansion tucked away in the middle of Encino in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. The spacious 11,483-square-foot home was originally custom-built in 1989 by the late singer Tom Petty, after an arsonist set fire to the original Tudor-style mansion. With six bedrooms and ten bathrooms, the “Rare” singer’s new abode has since been re-built by previous owners and boasts high-ceilings, plenty of natural light and a dreamy outdoor entertaining area (there’s even a yoga studio and at-home spa)! Scroll down to learn more about the storied estate.
Built at the end of a cul-de-sac, the secluded .87-acre property is invisible from the street and neighbors.
A sheltered patio is adorned with stone detailing and provides amble shade for those much-needed moments out of the steamy California sun.
Selena’s songwriting sanctuary boasts multiple stories filled with secret passageways and panic rooms, adding to the property’s mysteries.
The great room boasts high ceilings and a handsome natural stone fireplace that expands to the second story balcony.
Just off of the great room is a cozy space for the songstress to dream up her next #1 hit.
A sunken media room shows off a large collection of electric guitars and creates a fun space for her famous friends to hang out in the future.
The home features an abundance of skylights and windows that fill the home with tons of natural light and create an airy feeling.
The living room is an inviting escape to kick-back after a long day of recording. The neutral color palette creates flow with rest of the home.
Complete with whitewashed brick detailing and exposed beams, this hardworking kitchen includes a slew of high-end appliances perfect for any foodie.
Selena’s new home has two principal bedrooms, which both include private wraparound balconies with sweeping views of the lush yard.
The first principal bedroom’s seating area features a large Andy Warhol painting and large armchairs — perfect for cozying up with a good book.
The ensuite has a double vanity and plenty of room to take selfies for her 174 million Instagram followers.
A large soaker tub can be found in each of the principal bathrooms, creating a spa-like oasis to soak your stresses away.
Upstairs, there is a full yoga studio complete with a gong, mats and pillows. Namaste.
The second principal bedroom has beautiful vaulted ceilings. The seating area stays somewhat separated from the bed with stairs leading down to the sunken-in level.
This rustic-chic ensuite features the same amenities as the downstairs bedroom and even has its own balcony!
Another bedroom has a cozy loft for even more guests to stay.
The loft’s high ceilings make it easy to move around while still having an intimate atmosphere to find some peace and serenity.
A wine cellar can be found downstairs with plenty of room for new purchases.
If a piano and media room weren’t enough for the pop star on the main level, a downstairs recording studio is the perfect place to create more hits.
The home also features a small gym and massage room, perfect for relaxing and de-stressing.
An outdoor kitchen is great for summer barbecues and is an easy way to entertain future guests on hotter days.
A large pool and hot tub can be found amongst the lush backyard.
Selena’s neighbors include an array of social media stars such as Logan Paul, James Charles and Rebecca Zamolo.
A pergola is the ideal place to gather and have a bite to eat outside.
