International pop priestess Ariana Grande has become widely known for her indulgent meme-turned motto: “I see it, I love it, I want it, I got it.” But in the case of Los Angeles real estate, the longtime tenant still hasn’t seen anything that she likes to buy enough, despite the widely known fact that she has been looking for a home for at least 10 years. ‘last year.
Throughout her decade of Hollywood stardom, Grande never owned a home in Los Angeles, instead preferring to spend her days in a variety of lavish rental homes in Beverly Hills. For a while, she lived in a large French country-style mansion in the first 90210, right next to a house that Ellen DeGeneres recently unloaded for $ 35 million.
But as her earnings skyrocketed – Forbes estimates she made $ 48 million last year alone – the “Stuck With U” and “Rain on Me” singer took her investment in the property seriously. , initiating a frenzied house search that took her everywhere. the great southern region, from Beverly Hills to the confines of the San Fernando Valley.
Multiple sources claim that Grande is on the hunt for a substantial estate with an eight-figure price tag worthy of her glamorous image, and has almost bought at least two different homes, although she ultimately offered “Thanks, next door” to the of them.
One of the properties Grande has visited more than once is a 1.4 acre resort located in the leafy neighborhood of the Toluca Lake Valley. Currently owned by the president of a Hollywood film studio, the Flag Lot estate sits a stone’s throw from the homes of other superstars like Sia and Steve Carell, and is nearly invisible from the street out front, hidden behind a dense canopy of mature trees. While the house is not currently listed on MLS, it is believed to be quietly available for off-market viewing to highly qualified buyers – provided they know the right high-end real estate agent to call.
For the past five years, Grande has parked her ponytail at a Mediterranean-inspired mansion nestled in the Benedict Canyon area of Los Angeles, where she is frequently surrounded by a team of bodyguards, assistants, members of the glam team and various assistants. The walled and gated home has over 6,000 square feet of living space and expansive views of the canyon and nearby hills.

To the rear there is a huge stone patio with plenty of space for sunbathing or outdoor entertaining, as well as a pool and spa. The isolated estate was last offered at a rental rate of $ 40,000 / month.
In addition to her sturdy rental mansion 90210, Grande has also long rented a second property in Los Angeles, this one a smaller mansion in the mountains above Sherman Oaks. This two-story house, which overlooks a wide swath of the San Fernando Valley, is occupied by a family member.
