Highly acclaimed musical artist Elton John and his husband, filmmaker David Furnish, have acquired a sprawling real estate portfolio with properties across the globe. The couple owns various estates in the U.K., lavish homes in the south of France as well as in Venice, Italy. In the United States, they also own a mansion sized condo in Atlanta, Georgia but reportedly spend most of their time at an impressive two-house compound in Beverly Hills, California.
Now, John and Furnish are adding yet another property to their portfolio with a second Beverly Hills residence. This newfound abode is actually the property immediately neighboring to their longtime residence. The home was purchased from a family who has reportedly owned the house for decades before selling it to John and Furnish in an off market for $8.5 million.
Located in the coveted neighborhood of Trousdale Estates, John and Furnish’s newfound abode spans 5,343 square feet with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Built in 1968, the single story home captures a midcentury modern feel yet has been modified over the years. The exterior walls have been painted a mustard yellow and the property is walled and gated for security. As this deal took place off the market, information regarding the interior layout remains largely unknown. However, the property does offer a near half acre of exterior landscape. Out back, the space presents a swimming pool, lush lawn, and spacious motor court for multiple cars.
