Want to stay under the radar? Buy a home that’s currently off the market. Such is the tactic of many celebrities, and most recently Katy Perry.
The pop princess bought three adjoining parcels of land for a total of $11.2 million, reports The Real Estalker. One of the parcels holds a mid-century modern previously owned by Max and Rebecca Weinberg.
According to property records, the Weinberg home was purchased for $3 million by a trust held by Katy Perry’s manager. The same trust held the singer’s other real estate purchases, including Perry and Russell Brant’s home in Los Feliz.
The Weinberg home is strikingly different from Perry’s previous homes. Perhaps now that she’s single, she’s figured out what kind of architecture she likes. Her former home in Los Feliz was a “stately” traditional; her other property currently on the market is decidedly Spanish.
This new home is a mid-century modern, complete with an angular roof, open floor plan, and floor-to-ceiling windows that fully open to seamlessly connect with outdoor living spaces. Built in 1953, the home has been updated to include high-end appliances in the kitchen and brand-new bath features. Measuring 2,916 square feet, the home has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Best known for catchy, chart-topping songs, it’s been rumored that Perry has been home-searching for awhile. Buying three parcels was a wise move; the singer is one of the most recognized stars in Hollywood, and with often pastel-colored hair, she is easy for paparrazzi and fans to spot.
