Canadian R&B crooner, The Weeknd just dropped $70 million USD on a home in one of Los Angeles’ most coveted neighborhoods of Bel-Air.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the lavish home is expected to be one of the priciest California home sales of 2021. The approximately 33,000-square-foot megamansion includes a gym, movie theater, music studio, sauna, hammam, tennis court and an indoor pool as well as an outdoor infinity pool that doubles as a waterfall. The exterior of the house sees a dramatic split staircase that takes you from the lawn to the upper patio. The property spans across 1.6 acres of land and overlooks the Bel-Air Country Club.

The previous owners of the home were Dutch media mogul couple Reinout and Danielle Oerlemans. Reinout founded TV production company Eyeworks while Danielle Oerlemans was a pro-cyclist. The couple first bought the home in 2015 for $21.4 million USD but spent an additional three years on renovations to add 13,000 square feet of space to the aforementioned amenities. The Oerlemans were responsible for giving the house its current contemporary aesthetic, which now has the home featuring numerous of unique details including an orange-gloss painted living room, leather belts repurposed as kitchen drawer handles and a slew of subtle wooden sunburst panels for the office.

Following the huge success of his 2020 song “Blinding Lights,” it comes as no surprise that multi-platinum selling artist has made a purchase nearing $100 million USD. Check out images of the home here.
