Katy Perry is rumored to be thinking about leaving “American Idol,” but she has just purchased an $11 million home in the Sierra Towers of Los Angeles, proving she’s still a proud “California Girl.”
According to public records, the 38-year-old pop star bought a “junior penthouse” in the Hollywood Hills skyscraper last week through a limited liability company that shares an address in Encino, California with another LLC where she is the director. Interestingly, her eponymous shoe collection is also registered at the same address.
The sale was first reported by Dirt.com. The seller of the residence is Jen Kao, the daughter of billionaire Garmin founder Min Kao, as per property records. Kao had purchased the property in 2016 for $9.3 million.
The condo spans approximately 3,000 square feet and comprises two bedrooms and three bathrooms, according to the listing with the Agency. It was initially listed in January for just under $12.5 million.
Situated on the top floor of the 31-story tower, the penthouse showcases dark-wood flooring and wood accents throughout, as seen in the listing photos. This includes built-in shelving, a wood-framed wet bar, and wooden cabinetry in the kitchen.
The main area boasts a semi-open layout, with a dining room adjacent to the kitchen and living room.
The living room offers floor-to-ceiling windows that lead to a deck overlooking the city and the distant mountains. Additionally, there is a dark red home theater in the penthouse.
Perry, who is currently engaged in a residency in Las Vegas, has been in the news lately for reportedly contemplating the end of her six-year tenure on “American Idol,” according to an initial report by The Daily Mail.
The singer is known for her involvement in the real estate market. Last summer, she sold a Beverly Hills home for $18 million, as reported by Mansion Global. This is just one of several high-value sales associated with the pop star.
At the time of writing, representatives for Perry have not responded to a request for comment, and the listing agent declined to provide further information.
