It’s no secret that Zendaya shares a close bond with her parents. Up until fairly recently, despite owning several homes of her own, the internationally famous actress (“Euphoria,” “Dune,” the “Spider-Man” franchise) was still living with either her father, Oakland native Kazembe Ajamu Coleman, or her mother Claire Stoermer; the pair divorced in 2016 but remain close “homies,” per Zendaya herself.
Records reveal the 26-year-old has now followed in the footsteps of megastars like The Rock, Leonardo DiCaprio and Beyoncé in buying homes for her parents, dropping $1.9 million on a residence to be occupied by her father. The impressive home is tucked away in the far-flung suburban outskirts of Los Angeles, in the San Fernando Valley’s West Hills neighborhood near Woodland Hills and Calabasas.
Built in the 1990s, the two-story residence last sold in 2008 for $1.1 million and has been renovated since. The front door opens into a double-height foyer with walls painted a pale periwinkle, and there are new hardwood floors throughout the main level. Both the living and family rooms offer their own fireplaces, and the formal dining room has French doors offering direct access to the pool area. White quartz countertops and deep brown cabinets define the fully redone kitchen, which boasts eat-in bar seating and adjoins the family room.
There are five bedrooms scattered throughout the roughly 3,400-square-foot structure, including two on the main floor and three upstairs. One of the downstairs rooms is currently outfitted as an office, while the upstairs master retreat offers a dedicated sitting area, a luxe remodeled bathroom and private balcony with mountain and city lights views.
Other outdoor amenities include grassy front and backyards, a raised spa adjoining the home’s swimming pool, and a built-in barbecue center with a bar seating area. A covered loggia provides some al fresco respite from the oppressive San Fernando Valley heat, and for chilly nights there’s also a circular fire-pit ideal for making s’mores. The property is additionally tucked away within an upscale housing tract, where HOA dues of $205/month help cover a neighborhood security patrol and maintenance of park-like common areas.
In addition to her dad’s spiffy new digs, Zendaya maintains several other residences, including a New York City apartment and the first house she ever bought, a Mediterranean-themed place in L.A.’s Northridge community. But the most expensive property in her portfolio remains a $4 million hilltop compound in Encino.
