Adele Buys Sylvester Stallone’s Mansion, One of the Most Expensive Celebrity Homes in Recent History
After her new album, 30, nabbed the title of best-selling album of 2021 (with more than 600,000 copies sold in the six weeks following its Nov. 19 release), Adele found the best way to celebrate — and invest her earnings.
The British singer/songwriter kicked off the New Year by putting in an offer for a new place to call home:
a sprawling mansion with a 90210 zip code owned by none other than action movie star Sylvester Stallone.
Adele offered to pay $58 million for the massive estate, an exorbitant amount that pales in comparison to the initial asking price.
Stallone first listed the property back in January 2021, asking $110 million (!) for the Mediterranean-style compound set in the highly exclusive community of North Beverly Park, in LA.
The mind-boggling listing price instantly shot it at the top of our list of most expensive celebrity homes in recent history.
By mid-October, the Rocky actor slashed the price down to $80 million, but there were still no buyers in sight.
Until Adele decided to put in an offer, asking for another $22 million discount.
Currently, the house is in escrow, pending inspection and other formalities.
Sitting on a sprawling 3.47-acre lot, the main residence is a Mediterranean-style mansion custom-built for Sly — and has often been referred to as ‘the house Rocky built’.
Inside, visitors are greeted by a grand foyer that’s two-stories tall,
which leads into the formal living and dining rooms, family room, home office, and perfectly appointed chef’s kitchen.
Designed for entertaining high profile guests, the mansion’s many amenities include a screening room, cigar room, and custom bar.
The outdoor area makes the most of its 3.5 acres of lush greenery, and comes with covered dining and lounge areas, a putting green, and an infinity pool that opens up to city and canyon views.
There’s also a two-story guest house on the grounds of the property that’s a million dollar house in itself.
Designed by star architect Richard Landry, the guest house has a living room, dining and kitchen, as well as two bedroom suites.
The London-born singer owns three other houses in Beverly Hills, telling British Vogue that:
“The kind of house I have in LA I could never afford in London. Ever.”
