Your new Weeknd home: Singer lists mansion for a "Blinding" $25 million

It’s the ultimate Weeknd getaway pad: The “Blinding Lights” singer is selling his mansion in an L.A. suburb for $25 million.

According to The Dirt real estate website, the three-acre property includes a main house and a guest house that together include nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms over nearly 13,500 square feet.  Among the home’s features: fireplace, wet bar, floor-to-ceiling windows, climate-controlled wine cellar, five-car garage with LED lighting embedded in the floor, a media lounge and a fitness suite.  And that’s just indoors.

Outdoors, there’s a heated dining and lounging outside area, an open-air pool house with an outdoor fireplace, a zero-edge swimming pool and spa and a full-sized basketball court.  The Weeknd paid just over $18 million for the place three years ago, but according to The Dirt, it’s not surprising that he’d want to sell the place in the ‘burbs, because late last year, he plunked down $21 million on a mansion-sized penthouse in downtown L.A.

And The Weeknd isn’t the only one who’s selling a mansion.  The Dirt reports that earlier this year, Miley Cyrus sold her home in Malibu for $1.7 million, taking a loss of $825,000 on the property, which she bought four years ago.  The new owner is songwriter/producer Matthew Wilder, best known for his ’80s hit “Break My Stride.”

The Dirt notes that coincidentally, or perhaps not, Wilder sold Miley’s ex-husband Liam Hemsworth an estate for nearly $7 million in 2014. That’s the home that Liam and Miley shared that burned down in 2018 during the Woolsey Fire.
