There comes a time in (some) people's lives in which they "settle down" — you know, like, they've got the perfect spouse, perfect kids, and the final factor in the perfection trifecta: the perfect house. This is exactly where Jay-Z and Beyonce find themselves right now. Only their house is a mansion. And the mansion has four pools. And the deal is 2017's biggest real estate transaction in Los Angeles County. But otherwise, the Carters settling down is totally relatable.
After bouncing from rental to rental when they initially moved to the West Coast in 2015, the Carters bit the bullet and closed the deal. And what a deal it is! The priciest real estate deal in LA this year, Mr. and Mrs. Carter paid $88 milli for their new pad and took on an additional $52.8 million mortgage, totaling about $140 million overall for the compound. With a spa and wellness center and staff quarters residing on the 40,000-square-foot estate, there really is no reason to ever leave the house, which is perfect for a woman who creates a hullabaloo with a single postpartum dinner date outfit.
An astute fan was quick to notice that the compound is shaped like the number four. As mentioned before, it also houses four pools. Yes, this is all probably coincidental, but we do know that this couple loves that number, as it's their wedding date, part of their daughter's name, and the Roman numeral which Bey has tatted on her finger.
Have fun settling into this sprawling estate, you guys! Looks like there's plenty of space... can we request a visit?
