Although the deal actually closed last year, it’s only now that Zendaya‘s quiet acquisition of a multi-acre compound in the San Fernando Valley has come to light. Tucked away in the hills of the celeb-favored Encino neighborhood, the nearly four-acre, $4 million estate boasts a sprawling main house, a guesthouse and pool area. And the entire spread is completely hidden from prying eyes, invisible from the street down a long driveway and secured behind camera-watched gates.
It’s a lot of house for a 23-year-old, but the showbiz multi-hyphenate is no ordinary millennial. In addition to her burgeoning acting career (“Euphoria,” “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” “The Greatest Showman”) and her platinum-selling forays into music, the former Disney star is a fashion icon and major-league influencer with more than 66 million followers on Instagram alone.
Originally built in 1939, the sprawling ranch-style main house includes more than 5,000 square feet of living space and has clearly undergone several significant renovations over the past 80+ years. The house currently includes hardwood floors throughout, a giant open kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances, multiple fireplaces and a roomy master suite with built-in soaking tub and private balcony. The secluded property includes dozens of mature palm trees, and views from its hilltop perch.
There’s also a shed-like guesthouse with its own bathroom, potential bedroom and kitchenette. Other estate amenities include a recently-installed swimming pool with an inset spa and stone patio surround, sprawling lawns and a circular motorcourt with a blacktop driveway that appears to be aged and cracked in spots.
It remains publicly unknown when — or if — Zendaya plans to move into her new home; records reveal she put the property up for rental grabs late last year with a $12,900/month ask. The house has since been removed from the market, though it’s not clear if she actually scored a tenant for the celeb-surrounded compound.
