Not only is The Adelicia close to Nashville's Music Row, but it also has a private garage, heated pool, and fitness center. She apparently liked the building so much that later in 2009, she purchased a 1,000 square-foot, one-bedroom apartment below the penthouse for $387,000.

Swift told Vulture that she designed the penthouse herself. When she spoke to the publication in 2013, she had a photo on display of Kanye West interrupting her at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Under the photo she reportedly wrote, "Life is full of little interruptions."

The Northumberland Estate is a Greek Revival-style home that was built around 1934. It formerly belonged to Guilford Dudley Jr., who served as the US ambassador to Denmark.

The home, formerly known as Holiday House, was built in 1904. Swift wrote "the last great american dynasty" on her "folklore" album about the home's former owner, Rebekah Harkness.

She reportedly paid for the home in cash.

"I got the house when I was in my early twenties as a place for my family to congregate and be together," Swift told Entertainment Weekly, saying that she learned about Harkness "as soon as I was being walked through [her former Rhode Island] home."

Swift is known for throwing Fourth of July parties at the house, which is at the highest point of Watch Hill and has views of Little Narragansett Bay. The mansion has eight bedrooms, eight fireplaces, and a pool.

It's now estimated to be worth $22.5 million.

The property is now estimated to be worth $30 million, according to Zillow.

Swift reportedly bought the estate through an LLC from the Goldwyn family. It belonged to the legendary Hollywood producer who was part of the iconic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film studio, and reportedly hosted old Hollywood stars such as Clark Gable and Bette Davis.

The mansion has six bedrooms, a tennis court, a whole apartment for guests, and a swimming pool.

She had the penthouses converted into an 8,309-square-foot duplex, which now has 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

Swift bought the penthouses through an LLC from "The Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson.

Three years later in 2017, she bought the townhouse next door for $18 million, and in 2018, she purchased yet another apartment in the Sugar Loaf building for $9.75 million.

Andrew Azoulay, a real-estate agent in Manhattan, told The Wall Street Journal that he told Swift to buy the townhouse to act as a private garage and to buy the second-floor apartment to connect the garage to her duplex in the Sugar Loaf building.
