Very few celebrity couples radiate star power as much as Beyoncé and Jay-Z. They have built their musical legacies with several awards and hits and have emerged as icons and trailblazers. The unstoppable couple tied the knot in 2008, and their combined aspirations turned towards investing in real estate. Since then, they have owned and sold numerous homes in Miami Beach, New York City, Los Angeles, Hamptons, and New Orleans. In this article, we have rounded up some of the exotic places the couple called home. Read on!
Jay-Z’s first big purchase was in Lower Manhattan. Then, several years before he married Beyoncé, he got a Tribeca penthouse which cost him about $6.85 million. The couple held their wedding there, which featured 70,000 Dendrobium orchids that were flown in from Thailand. How extravagant could it get!
2005Beyoncé lived in a condo in the middle of Manhattan overlooking Central Park, which cost her $5 million. It featured 11-foot ceilings and interiors finished by Jacques Grange. In 2017 she sold the 44th corner for $9.95 million.
2007After purchasing the Tribeca penthouse, Jay-Z shifted to the Time Warner Center in Midtown. He rented a 4,825-square-foot condo for $40,000. The penthouse boasted a skyline view of the city, huge windows, and a ceiling fish tank. He sold in 2011 for $31 million.
2008The couple snapped property on Indian Creek Island, where his neighbors were Adriana Lima, Julio Iglesias, and Carl Icahn. Their 1991 Mediterranean-style villa boasted a private boat dock. The couple paid over $9 million for it and sold it in 2010 for $9.3 million.
2012The couple paid $400,000 and rented a mansion in Bridgehampton, New York. The house had a two-lane bowling alley, a skateboard pipe, a rock climbing wall, a tennis court, a full bar, a pool, and an outdoor kitchen.
2014The star couple spent $150,000 for a newly built Holmby Hills estate with an infinity pool wine cellar, a 75-foot-long art gallery, floor-to-ceiling glass sliders, and a home theater. In 2015 they sold the property and searched for the perfect West Coast pad.
2015There were rumors that Beyoncé and Jay-Z were behind in buying a Garden District home. A fire broke out at the property, and the couple listed it for $3.5 million. The property, however, did not sell and was pulled back into the market.
After welcoming twins Sir and Rumi, the couple rented the 6.3-acre La Villa for $400,000. The 12,000-square-foot residence had amenities like a gym, a movie theater, a wine cellar, and ocean view terraces.
The couple finally found their West Coast home base with an ultramodern $88 million Bel Air mansion. The property had wellness facilities, a spa, a media room, and several outdoor swimming pools.
