The Weeknd Buys $70 Million Bel-Air Mansion

  /  08.20.2021

The Weeknd has a new place to call home.

The “Take My Breath” singer has purchased a Bel-Air mansion for a whopping $70 million in what’s being called one of the largest real estate deals closed in Los Angeles this year.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the owners—Dutch media entrepreneur Reinout Oerlemans and his wife Danielle Oerlemans—said they had no plans to sell their home until The Weeknd’s agents approached them because they thought it would be perfect for the R&B star.

While the owners initially resisted, they eventually came around and sold the house in an off-market deal.

The 33,000-square-foot estate sits on about 1.6 acres overlooking the Bel-Air Country Club, with nine bedrooms and amenities including a sports court, spa with a sauna, indoor and outdoor pools, movie theater, gym, and music studio. Other features include a large living and entertaining space with glossy orange walls and a black fireplace, dining room with a fireplace, and a kitchen with copper cabinets and custom handles made from leather belts.

The house recently underwent a three-year renovation by the Oerlemanses, who purchased it for $21.44 million in 2015. They added roughly 13,000 square feet to the property to make room for the spa and other amenities, and imported modern furniture for the interior.

The Weeknd also owns a penthouse in L.A.’s Beverly West residential tower, which he purchased for $25 million in 2019. The 8,215-square-foot high-rise sits on the 18th floor of the 22-story building and features four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Earlier this year, he sold his Hidden Hills home to Madonna for $19.3 million. He bought the 12,500-square-foot mansion in 2017 for $18.2 million.
