We’ve broken it down for you. Everything from where Beyoncé lives now, to all the other place she owns and rents!
Beyoncé & Jay Z’s New Mansion in Bel Air
In July 2017 word got out that a power couple was interested in a brand new development in Bel Air. Media outlets began reporting that Beyoncé and Jay Z made an astronomical offer on the hillside mansion on at the end of a secluded street in Bel Air. The Los Angeles Times Hot Property section confirmed this news on August 18th of 2017. Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s $88 million offer was accepted and the purchase is official.
The property’s 30,000 square foot estate sits on just over 1.5 acres of pricey real estate and is surrounded by celebrity neighbors. The place is full of premium amenities, including four pools, a 15-car garage, and get this…bulletproof windows. Yes, bulletproof windows. Bulletproof. Windows. That’s badass!
The home was designed by home whisperer and spec-home genius, Paul McClean. Developer Tyrone McKillen bought the lot and previous home for $15 million in 2015. Obviously, he tore down the existing home and built this beauty. After four years of development, it was listed for $135 million before he accepted $88 million from the B&J.
Public records show that the couple purchased the home through blind trusts’ and have a whopping $52.8 million mortgage through Goldman Sachs. Also revealed in public records is their monthly payment, which is $149,600.
In October 2017, public records show the couple is still dumping money into the mansion. They have taken out 2 permits. One to install a backup generator. The other to add a living space below the pool to the tune of $750,000. This, all according to TMZ.

Beyoncé & Jay Z’s Mansion in New Orleans
This home carries a unique story. Constructed in 1925, this building was a church at that time. Later on, this Presbyterian Church was converted into a studio for ballet dance. Now, a well-known structure, you will often hear it referred to as Garden District Palace.
The total size of this Beyonce Jay Z house is 13,292 square feet. While there are many lights fitted into the ceiling, the true life of this house meets the eye during the daytime. The expansive windows on the walls let tons of sunlight in to make the entire house bright and fresh. The location of the dining room makes this house a really unique experience for anyone who visits. The big hall-like space when you enter the house has this beautifully placed dining room on one side. The dining room has been adorned with a crimson scheme on the walls and seats around the table. The chairs are covered with velvet, and the dining table is big enough to accommodate multiple families at once.
There are three master bedrooms in the house. The rouge walls of one of the bedrooms with crimson carpeting, dark colored furniture and golden shades on windows make it not only romantic but extremely relaxing too. In contrast, the bedroom across the hall has indigo walls joining a white patterned ceiling and a wooden floor. This room is cozy but there is nothing luxurious or opulent about this one. You can bet Beyonce and Jay Z have renovated!
