Theatrical music-world luminary The Weeknd found a buyer for his mansion in Hidden Hills this month: fellow theatrical music-world megastar Madonna. A suitable transaction, as the pair shares a certain camaraderie, or at least artistic sympathy.
The purveyor of contemporary R&B first listed the property on the cusp of last year’s summer solstice, asking $25 million; a price chop early this year brought the listing to $22 million. Madonna’s offer of $19.3 million did the trick.
As for the house, well, it’s a beauty. A contemporary farmhouse of 12,500 sq. ft. that sits on three acres, the home’s footprint is a big one; its interiors incorporate an LED accent-lighted gallery garage, a fitness studio and spa room, and a home theater. The grounds are filled out with a basketball court, a barn, and a small paddock.
The home begins with an entry lit by two levels of glass. Its interiors are expressed with the understated, off-white-and-wood combination; the oak floors and staircase have been given a light, flat-finish stain treatment. The kitchen features a double waterfall island layout, with figured stone caps and countertops that nicely compliment the color and grain of the floors.
Fleetwood doors open the home’s living spaces and master bedroom to the pool area, which sits across a slice of lawn and includes a pool house that brings the accommodations count to nine bedrooms and eleven baths.
The Weeknd won’t be left homeless; he owns a superb penthouse in L.A. He picked it up in 2019 for $21 million.
The Weeknd has sold over 75 million records. His last three studio albums reached the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
Madonna has sold over 300 million records and has charted nine studio albums at the top of the Billboard 200.
