Barbadian singer Rihanna has become one of the world’s most successful female artists of all time. She began her career in 2003, and her first studio album was released in 2005. While her first two albums were influenced by Caribbean music, her third album, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad,’ moved more into the genre of dance-pop. Releasing her third album broadened Rihanna’s fan base and increased both her popularity and her success. Its most famous single, ‘Umbrella,’ earned Rihanna her first Grammy Award.
Since beginning her career, Rihanna has released eight studio albums, seven box sets, three Eps, two remix albums, and one reissue. Rihanna has also released 52 singles as a lead artist, 18 singles as a featured artist, four promotional singles, two charity singles, and 31 other charted songs. In total, more than 250 million Rihanna records have been sold worldwide. Of her singles, 14 have topped the charts in the United States, while 31 have been US top ten hits and 30 have been top ten hits in the U.K. Forbes says that Rihanna’s net worth is $600 million. While her fortune is predominantly from her success as a singer, she has also made money through contracts with various cosmetics brands. Her financial status has allowed Rihanna to buy herself luxurious properties in various locations. Now, one of her properties in Beverly Hills is reportedly available to rent for $80,000 per month. Here is an overview of what potential renters can expect if they chose to rent this luxurious home.
Rihanna’s Extensive Portfolio
Rihanna has amassed a rather impressive portfolio of properties, including five multimillion-dollar homes in Los Angeles. Her main residence is a $5.5 million penthouse in The Century Skyscraper, Los Angeles. Her other Los Angeles properties include a condo in Wiltshire Corridor, a $6.8 million Hollywood Hills Estate, and two neighboring properties in Beverly Hills Post Office. However, she has not limited her house purchases to Los Angeles and also has many properties in other locations. These include a house in West London bought for around $10 million and a $14 million penthouse in Manhattan, New York.
An Overview of the Singer’s Beverly Hills Home Available for Rent
The estate that Rihanna has made available for rent is one of the neighboring properties in Beverly Hills Post Office. She reportedly bought this residence in late 2020 for $13.8 million, while she bought a neighboring house for $10 million in March 2021. Many rich and famous people live in neighboring properties. Sitting in a quiet cul-de-sac in a mountain setting, Rihanna’s estate has stunning views over Beverly Hills. It was built in 1938 and was previously owned by Mary Sheldon, the daughter of Sidney Sheldon, who is famous for being the creator of the comedy series ‘I Dream of Jeanie.’ It was then sold to Daniel Starr, an investor and entrepreneur, who tore down most of the original structure and rebuilt a modern home. Rihanna then purchased this estate from Starr. The expansive 7,638-square-foot mansion sits on a lot of 21,958-square-feet. It boasts five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Rihanna has now listed this extensive estate for rental with a hefty price tag of $80,000 per month.

Inside this house, there is a combination of traditional features and contemporary style. There is an open floorplan on the lower floor, and there are French white oak hardwood floors throughout this property. Through a pivoting glass front door, there is a central courtyard that includes a pool, a spa, a fire pit lounge area, a cabana, and an alfresco terrace. Other rooms on the lower floor of the mansion are arranged around the courtyard. There are two separate sitting areas on the lower floor. One sitting room has a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood glass sliding door that leads to the outdoor space. A second sitting area also offers a fireplace and boasts built-in shelves and a walk-in bar area. This room has potential for various alternative uses, including a family room, den, or library space. A gourmet kitchen offers extensive space for food preparation and casual dining. There are marble-clad walls, dual islands, high-end appliances, and folding doors out to a garden. There is also a breakfast banquette area with tufted black leather seating. The kitchen is open to a second sitting room. There are five bedrooms in this house, and its master retreat overlooks Coldwater Canyon. It is a relaxing space with a vaulted ceiling, a white color scheme, and touches of black to contrast. From the main section of the bedroom, folding glass doors open out to a private outdoor sitting area where occupants can enjoy views across the surrounding area, or simply sit and enjoy the Californian sunshine. In the master retreat, there is a spa-like bath in veined marble and a custom-built walk-in closet that has glossy black lacquer cabinetry. Although there are plenty of bedrooms for guests, there is also a guesthouse within this estate’s grounds. Therefore, there are various accommodation options for visitors.

The Grounds of this Luxurious Beverly Hills Pad
At the front of the music industry star’s house, gates and hedges mean that Rihanna’s pad is discreetly hidden from view. From the gates, there is a sloping driveway that leads down to a detached two-car garage. A curved staircase leads up to the mansion’s front door. Externally, Rihanna’s mansion has a smart and modern look, with a white façade against black trim and a black metal roof, says Dirt.com. It is a two-story farmhouse-style structure. Many of this residence’s outdoor facilities sit within a courtyard space, and there are also various balconies around the upper level of the house where occupants can enjoy relaxing outdoors. However, there are also grounds at the rear. In Rihanna’s backyard, a large lawned area that is dotted with trees occupies most of the outdoor space to the rear. Hedges and trees also surround the grounds to give the occupants some privacy from neighboring properties and prying eyes.
