This summer, pop singer Miley Cyrus purchased a new home in Hidden Hills, according the Los Angeles Times. The slightly less than $5 million property is the second time in the last decade that Cyrus has invested that amount for a little estate in the horse-friendly gated community; in 2015, she picked up a ranch with a stall, paddocks and riding arena for $5 million, ultimately selling it about three years later—for $5 million.
Easy come, easy go, and easy come again, then.
Cyrus’ new spot is a 1.2-acre fantasy capped with a house that measures just under 6,000 square feet. It was constructed in the late 1950s, but has been heavily renovated inside and out. The streetside impression is updated; the effusion of the lengthy, winding red brick front staircase has been modified into a neutral look, black trim has been added to the doorway and windows, and a set of shutters on a second story bay window are gone.
Inside the home, the pale plank hardwood floors have been replaced with wide-plank pale hardwood floors; a quibbling difference that’s distinctly conspicuous. The layout remains the same, with a semi-open concept and vaulted ceilings, but a timber plank ceiling has been whitewashed. To suit the new sensibility, the earthiness of the living room’s brick fireplace and the master suite’s fieldstone fireplace have been replaced with in-wall gas fixtures.
Outside is where the fantasy flourishes. The larger lot is nicely fleshed out with paddocks, a lagoon-inspired pool with a stone water feature, stone walkways, and a tile patio with a fire feature.
Cyrus’ upcoming album, She Is Miley Cyrus, does not yet have an official release date.
