Billionairess Rihanna has splashed out $22 million on a beach-side home on the Caribbean Island of Barbados – after renting the same property previous year.
The twenty-five year old singer has bought a home at the deluxe One Sandy Lane resort on the island where she was born and raised. The star, said to be value $600 million, purchased the 10,000 square-foot pad just down the beach from the popular, 5 star sandy lane hotel. It has been on the market for $21.8 million.
Most of that comes not from music but from her partnership with LVMH, the French luxury goods giant run by billionaire Bernard Arnault. Fenty Beauty racked up a reported $100 million in sales in its first few weeks, propelled by Rihanna’s fame and 135 million Instagram followers.
Rihanna bought the home after renting it for her family a previous year. There are only 8, 10,000 sq. ft apartments within the opulent complex that is just a walk on the beach, each spec 5 en-suite bedroom that boasts their own dressing rooms and private terraces.
One Sandy Lane boasts that it operates like a boutique hotel. Even when nobody is staying there, a private staff of thirty-four, including security staff and gardeners, keeps everything perfect.
The security systems work on biometrics, which means residents can move between different areas in the building without carrying anything as old-styled as key, but non-residents will be quickly detected. While private elevators and underground parking come as standard, best for Rihanna.
Rihanna purchased a 5 bedroom condo inside the palatial estate of her and her family back in 2013, granting her entry to a golf course, private beach, a tennis court, and a casual docking space for yachts. Decorated with voluptuous and generous lounges and decorated with expensive interiors, the 10,000 square foot apartments, featuring 5 royal and palatial rooms which each boasts of a private terrace and high-grade security systems. Such is the elite design and approach of the apartments, securing the residents while giving a sense of complete peace.
The apartment is a perfect getaway recluse, covered in pine trees, greeted with beach waves sounding in the distant, while the breeze crosses and cuts through the leaves of the pine, leading into your apartment. This leaves you refreshed, reconnected and rejuvenated. Priced at about $22 million, the apartment comes with a private underground basement parking and private elevators leading to the apartments.
The apartment’s front leads to a life-sized pool which concludes to the sandy lane beach which offers a rich view to its residents.
So while the likes of Kylie Jenner just stay at temporary houses-away from homes during their holidays, Rihanna actually owns a private oasis all to herself. Now that is how you live like a Billionaire.
