In addition to Rihanna’s myriad of other business endeavors – she sings, she’s a cosmetics mogul with her own brand Fenty Beauty, she’s a lingerie mogul and fashion designer – the “Umbrella” crooner is also a aspiring real estate mogul, with five multi-million dollar homes in Los Angeles alone. And if you have an extra $ 80,000 burning a proverbial hole in your pocket, you might have the honor of calling Rihanna your landlord for a full month.
With five bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread over 7,600 square feet of mansion-sized living space, the Coldwater Canyon Mansion is the perfect place for any oligarch to recover from the COVID blues in style. Rihanna bought the house at the end of last year for $ 13.8 million, adding to its impressive cache of houses. It also has the house next door, recovered in March for $ 10 million, as well as a $ 6.8 million estate in Hollywood Hills, a top-floor condo along the Wilshire Corridor, and its longtime primary residence, a $ 5.5 million penthouse in Los Angeles’ The Century skyscraper.

The newly listed rental estate is located in a coveted cul-de-sac in the mountains above Beverly Hills, where the lucky new tenant may end up rubbing shoulders with prominent neighbors like Sir Paul McCartney. Originally built in the 1930s, the estate has long been owned by novelist Mary Sheldon, daughter of “I Dream of Jeanie” creator Sidney Sheldon, who sold the dated home to entrepreneur and investor Daniel Starr; Starr demolished and rebuilt almost every square inch of the house before Rihanna entered the real estate world.
David Parnes and James harris of the Agency hold the list.
Well hidden from the street by hedges and swept-back gates, the manor house is accessed via a sloping driveway which leads to an independent garage for two cars. A curved staircase leads up to the house, which sports a contemporary facade with white paint on a black metal roof and black trim. Once inside, the modern yet traditional interiors nod to the trendy modern farmhouse via an open floor plan accented by French white oak hardwood floors.
A glass front door pivots into the lobby leading to a central courtyard filled with an open-air patio, pool and spa, cabana, and sitting area with fireplace.
Main level highlights include a living room with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood glass sliding door that opens to the exterior, as well as a walk-in bar that serves a family room / lounge / intimate bookcase with another fireplace and built-in shelves.
There’s also a gourmet marble kitchen fitted with two islands, high-end appliances, and a breakfast bench with black-tufted leather seating.
Upstairs you’ll find a main retreat overlooking Coldwater Canyon, which is highlighted by a custom walk-in closet with black lacquer cabinets and a spa-style tub covered in veined marble that opens to a private outdoor seating area.
The place also has its own gym and media room, as well as a guest house.
