X Factor guest star, Taylor Swift recently purchased a new home in Rhode Island. But that’s not the half of it; she paid for the sprawling $17+ million mansion with cold hard cash! Keep reading for more details.
According to TMZ, Swift had been eyeing the property for some time and took a tour of the home on April 15. So what’s so special about this particular house? The Colonial style four-level Rhode Island mansion sits on 5.23 acres, 65 feet off the beach, and boasts more than 11,000-square-feet of luxury living space. Now that’s a house!
So what’s inside? The mansion has 8 enormous bedrooms, 10.5 baths, 8 fireplaces, a 36-foot parlor, and a 45-foot sunroom. There are also two kitchens, a huge main kitchen complete with all the latest bells and whistles and a service kitchen on the lower level with access to the seaside entertainment area and a large pool, plus, a half bathroom just for staff. The heated garage holds five cars and has a separate area for a workshop. And that’s just for starters; there are far too many amenities to list.
The original asking price was a hefty $20 million, but Swift was able to negotiate the price down to $17.75 million. Then she wired the money to seal the deal and movers were spotted at the house shortly thereafter.
