A Popstar known as “The Weeknd,” whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, has his penthouse in Westwood, Los Angeles, up for sale for $22.5 million.
According to public records, the special-effects-loving singer and songwriter paid $21 million for the mansion in 2019. It was one of the most expensive condo transactions ever in Los Angeles County at the time.
The artist’s price tag would shatter actor Matthew Perry’s previous record for the most costly real estate. Perry fetched $21.6 million for his Century City penthouse in 2021.
As Los Angeles Times reported, Candy Spelling, a socialite, owns the current condo record, dropping $35 million on a 15,555 square footer in Century Tower in 2010.
According to the New York Post, The Weeknd’s home is 8,000 square feet and has four bedrooms and eight bathrooms,
It takes up an entire floor of Beverly West, a 22-story boutique high-rise that houses 35 luxury apartments with views of the Los Angeles Country Club.
The views are not confined to the golf course, as the mansion boasts panoramic views of the city and ocean through floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies.
The penthouse has an elevator and features a chef’s kitchen, an entertainment bar with wall-mounted TVs, and a gym.
A 24-hour concierge, a saltwater swimming pool, and a rooftop helipad are among the building’s features.
The Weeknd purchased a massive Bel-Air mansion for $70 million a few months earlier.
The Canadian native singer sold his Hidden Hills mansion for $19.3 million in April 2021.
The Weeknd has risen to fame in the last decade with four studio albums, three Grammy Awards, and hits like “Can’t Feel My Face,” “The Hills,” and “Blinding Lights.”
His fifth and most recent album “Dawn FM,” was released on Friday, Jan. 7.
The listing belongs to Angel Salvador of Beverly Hills Estates.
