Report: Taylor Swift Flips Home Near Kennedy Compound
As soon as it was confirmed that country-pop star Taylor Swift did indeed buy a mansion near the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port, MA, it was also confirmed that she recently sold it.
Swift was featured in this month’s Vanity Fair, where she addressed the gossip that follows many of her relationship moves. Although she did not speak to the magazine specifically about buying the home, the publication affirmed the Cape Cod Times report that the house was sold in November 2012 for $4.8 million. Although she did buy in November, according to sources who spoke with both Vanity Fair and E! News, Swift sold the home for a profit just two weeks ago.
Property records have yet to reflect the sale, but Barnstable real estate agent Bob Kinlin told E! News that Swift sold the home for $5.675 million to a couple who were previously interested in the property.
Not a bad turnaround for someone who plays the guitar more often than the real estate market.
Swift bought the home after dating Conor Kennedy this past summer. Although it was rumored that her relationship ended after September, she apparently decided it was worth going through with the home purchase.
Swift’s new place had been on the market for some time. First listed at $13.5 million in 2010, the home’s price tag dropped several times before Swift snagged it for $4.8 million, a more than 60 percent discount.
The home is just a stone’s throw from the Kennedy Compound and overlooks Nantucket Sound. It includes a guesthouse as well as a private beach on its 1.1 acres. Built in 1928, the home only had one owner prior to Swift.
Decked out in traditional Cape Cod decor, the shingled white home has 7 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and 4,440 square feet of living space. Beautiful wide wood floors, multiple fireplaces and classic built-ins are additional features in the home.
