It’s no lie! Shay Mitchell is officially the latest celeb to buy in ritzy Hidden Hills, joining countless other famous faces now calling the guard-gated San Fernando Valley enclave home — from NFL star Matthew Stafford, Lil Wayne and Madonna to rapper Iggy Azalea, Jeffree Star and nearly every member of the Kardashian clan, just to name a few. Records reveal the “Pretty Little Liars” star — who parents a daughter with longtime partner Matte Babel, a former “Entertainment Tonight Canada” reporter — has doled out $7.2 million for a Mediterranean-inspired estate with nearly 8,000 square feet of living space spread across a main house, plus a detached guesthouse and and pool house. Nearly every square inch of the 1.5-acre property offers sweeping pastoral views.
Mitchell still owns her former home — a 1920s Los Feliz villa she purchased from “The Hangover” actor Justin Bartha for $3.7 million in 2014.
Best known for her breakout role as Emily Fields on the long-running mystery thriller drama series “Pretty Little Liars,” Mitchell also has appeared in multiple other big- and small-screen productions, including “Rookie Blue,” “You,” “The Possession of Hannah Grace,” and most recently, the Hulu comedy series “Dollface.” She also hosts a YouTube lifestyle channel, which has racked up 4.2 million subscribers, and she’s the cofounder and chief brand officer of Onda, a sparkling tequila company based in Jalisco, Mexico. On top of that, she’s a major-level influencer with more than 30 million followers on Instagram.
Built in 1990 and designed by glitz-loving architect Richard Landry, Mitchell’s residence has extensive exterior stonework topped by a red tile roof. The lush lot is dotted by mature oak trees and oodles of multicolored roses; while a double front door notched into a turret opens into a circular grand foyer with French doors leading right out to the backyard.
