Her heart might be in Havana, but Cuban-American singer-songwriter Camila Cabello has been living a beautiful life with her best friend and now former partner, Canadian singer Shawn Mendes, in a Hollywood Hills home that has everything, including a recording studio. She recently put her home on the market for $3.95 million.
Though together for two years, the couple has separated but are still best friends, according to USA Today. In anticipation of all the transitions in Cabello’s personal life, selling her charming Hollywood Hills home is a major next step.
Perched above Sunset Strip, the 3,579-square-foot home brings a taste of the Mediterranean with its walled garden and wrought-iron gate, arches and brightly tiled fireplace surrounds. The four-bedroom, four-bath home was built in 1977 with all 21st-century updates while still retaining its original charm, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
With complete privacy in mind, the wall that encloses the rear yard and saltwater pool offers the best of indoor-outdoor living. Kitchen and baths are sleekly contemporary, while glass doors stack out of the way to create a vanishing threshold between the family room and outdoor terrace and greenery.
Ideal for performers or wannabes, the house has a recording studio with professional equipment and a vocal booth. The split-level house has distressed wood floors and tile throughout, and the master suite has its own dreamy fireplace. In addition to the pool there is an outdoor fireplace, grilling and dining area. There is also an attached two-car garage and laundry room.
Born in Cuba but raised in Miami, Cabello’s career was kick-started when she appeared on The X Factor in 2016 and became part of the group Fifth Harmony, created by Simon Cowell, where she stood out from the group. From there she branched out on her own with her mega-hits “Havana” and “Senorita,” winning numerous awards, including two Latin Grammy and four American Music Awards.
Hollywood Hills is the ideal location for easy access to the studios, a magnet for star-seeking tour buses and backdrop location for many films. Celebrities who have lived there or still live there include Katy Perry, Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Britney Spears, Bryan Austin Green and Justin Timberlake.
