High above the Sunset Strip, Camila Cabello has just scored big. Barely two years after she doled out millions for her Hollywood Hills lair, she’s relinquishing control of the premises. Per property records, the pop sensation (“Havana,” “Señorita”), 24, has sold the Mediterranean-style showpiece to a buyer from Mainland China for $4.3 million, a full $350,000 over her $3.95 million asking price. That’s also nearly $1 million more than Cabello paid Bollywood actor/producer Uday Chopra for the place in 2019.
Tucked away securely behind privacy walls and gates, on a compact 0.15-acre parcel in the Hollywood foothills, the eye-catching structure was originally built in 1977 but has since undergone multiple remodels. Included are four bedrooms and an equal number of baths spread across just over 6,300 square feet of open-plan living space adorned throughout with distressed hardwood and imported tile floors. A tree-shaded courtyard greets visitors, with a glassy front door opening into the foyer of the stylish split-level residence.
Main-level highlights include a living room with a Spanish tile fireplace and family room with floor-to-ceiling glass doors spilling outside. The updated gourmet kitchen abuts a dining area, and comes outfitted with stone countertops, high-end stainless appliances and an eat-in island; elsewhere on this level is a spare bedroom that Cabello converted into a recording studio during her tenure. Upstairs, a duo of large guest bedrooms each have their own bath and private balcony; above that is a penthouse level dedicated solely to a master retreat boasting a fireplace, balcony and walk-in closet, plus a spa-like bath with dual vanities and a soaking tub.
Outdoors, the long and narrow backyard holds a firepit, separate “fireplace lounge,” saltwater plunge pool, an al fresco dining area and a newly built barbecue area. Per the listing, there’s also a professional vocal booth in the attached two-car garage, along with a state-of-the-art security system sporting multiple cameras, alarms, a “prewired intercom system” and surround sound.
Cuban-born Cabello first attracted attention during her 2012 audition for “The X Factor” and went on to perform with the five-girl group Fifth Harmony before leaving to pursue a solo career in late 2016. Her first studio album “Camila” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2018, and “Havana” subsequently topped the charts in several countries and became a bestselling single worldwide. She recently took up acting, appearing in the movie “Cinderella” alongside Billy Porter of “Pose” fame.
