Katy Perry does not stop moving her sumptuous real estate portfolio: if last year she sold a mansion in Beverly Hills for 18 million euros, now she has paid just over 10 million for an elegant penthouse in Sierra Towers, in Los Angeles. The seller is Jen Kao, daughter of the billionaire founder of Garmin - a company dedicated to the GPS service -, the American engineer of Taiwanese origin Min Kao, who acquired it in 2016 for 8.6 million at the current exchange rate and subjected it to a profound reform . Now, one of King Carlos III's favorite artists is its new owner.
The previous owner's tastes are exotic: dark walnut floors, automatic blinds (rare in the US), steel windows, a scarlet movie theater, yoga studio, and carved-in-wood bar. zebra wood. Otherwise the views are spectacular. Among its most notable amenities, the kitchen with high-end furniture, suite with marble bathroom and the combination of two apartments in a spacious area for two bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The Sierra Towers skyscraper dominates the intersection of Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, the Hollywood Hills and the western end of the Sunset Strip and has been an icon of the Los Angeles skyline since 1965. Designed by noted architect Jack A. Charney, the 31-story esrt building includes 24-hour security and counseling, outdoor community pool, gym and valet parking; perhaps that is why it has been one of the favorites for all kinds of celebrities for decades. Its current residents include Adam Sandler, the Osbourne family, and Mary Hart.
Presumably, Perry shares this new apartment with his partner, actor Orlando Bloom, although they now mainly reside in neighboring Montecito, where three years ago they paid 13.2 million for a property near Meghan Markle's house and the Prince Harry.
