What’s inside Calvin Harris’ Beverly Hills mansion

Don’t be misled by the estate’s appearance. While the East Coast Traditional-meets-Southern Colonial architecture may conjure images of elegantly restrained, stuffily formal rooms, the decor here has been radically eroticized with “premier craftsmanship… and the finest materials,” according to the listing by Douglas Elliman high-end specialists Josh and Matt Altman of the Altman Brothers Team. The handcrafted herringbone-patterned hardwood floors, “floating” bookshelves, exposed brick walls, and quartz staircase are just a few of the features.

Calvin Harris, a highly compensated DJ who is the current owner, is in charge of the pricey upgrades. The house was a shell of what it is today when he originally bought it in 2014, with plain and simple finishing touches everywhere. But thanks to some probably expensive upgrades, that is no longer the case. Harris, on the other hand, is financially able to do so. The enduring hitmaker (Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” “Feel So Close,” “Summer,” and “One Kiss”) made $110 million in just 2013 and 2014, and another $129 million in 2015 and 2016.

The Benedict Canyon home is a five-building compound hidden by enormous gates, tall trees, and a long driveway high in the rough foothills above Beverly Hills. In addition to the four-bedroom main house, there is a two-story guesthouse with two independent recording studios. The property also includes a security structure for a full-time bodyguard, a five-car detached garage connected to an upstairs movie theater, and a freestanding gym with cutting-edge equipment.

Not to mention the sizable outdoor pool, which is protected from the sun by a beautiful grove of eucalyptus trees. The description mentions a custom pergola with a BBQ area, a sports court, and an outdoor lounge set around a firepit in the backyard. The 2.7-acre hillside property has numerous gardens and a solar dome that towers over the back.

Even with the extensive improvements, if Harris receives anything close to his $25 million asking price, it will be a tremendous gain for him, considering he spent exactly $15 million for the mansion eight years ago. Despite his musical prowess, the 38-year-old Scottish DJ has had some real estate hardship. He once lost almost $500,000 on the sale of his former Brentwood property, and he just barely broke even on two separate Hollywood Hills estates, one near the desirable Bird Streets area and another recently sold to fellow musician Charli XCX.

Adam Wiles, better known by his stage name Harris, has traded in his opulent Los Angeles lifestyle for a simpler one on the Spanish island of Ibiza. There, he recently bought a 138-acre ranch that locals refer to as “the biggest organic farm on all of Ibiza.” The Harris estate provides work for many people, including farmers and chefs, and provides farm-to-table meals in addition to producing eggs, wine, and a variety of vegetables.

While there is no indication on whether Harris intends to stay in Los Angeles following the sale of the large 90210 mansions, the artist does own a $13.8 million vacant lot in Bel Air’s hills.
