The multi-platinum singer is worth an estimated $249 million, purchased three properties in an upscale community in the past five years — and they’re is one thing they all have in common.
Music sensation Adele has revealed that she has invested over $41.5 million (US$30m) into Los Angeles real estate, but she can’t quite afford London living.
The 33-year old, who reportedly worth nearly a quarter of a billion, purchased three properties in the upscale Hidden Valley community in the past five years.
“The kind of house I have in LA I could never afford in London. Ever,” the British native told Vogue.
Adele has created a stronghold Beverly Hills region after she recently bought a third home in the neighbourhood from pal Nicole Richie.
In May, the singer paid US$10 million for the 513 sqm, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home, nearly five years after purchasing her first property in the Hidden Valley community.
In 2016, the 15-time Grammy-winning artist, 33, bought her first home in Beverly Hills for US$9.5 million.
Three years later, in 2019, she purchased a second home for US$10.65 million — adjacent to the other two homes — shortly after her split from husband Simon Konecki, 47.
It is believed the home is occupied by Konecki, so that they can raise their 8-year-old son, Angelo Adkins, close together. Their divorce was finalised in March.
The homes are located in an exclusive gated enclave, also notably home to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lawrence and Katy Perry.
The British star has an estimated net worth of about $249 million (US$177m), according to the Times UK, following the success of her last three albums: “25,” “21” and “19.”
Here latest album ‘30’, was released earlier last week, and has already become 2021’s top-selling album in the US.

There is also a bonus room that has usually been reserved as a gym.
2019: Hidden Valley Road purchase #2
Designed by Edwin Fields, this contemporary compound sits on more than 3,715 sqm of lush grounds. Pegged as an “art collector’s paradise,” the home features high ceilings and an abundance of natural light throughout.
The original house was built in 1961 before it was rebuilt and expanded in 1980, with several updates and finishes since. The main property spans 560 sqm.
Highlights include a spacious sunken living room with direct patio access, an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a 2000-book library and custom-made furniture, according to the listing.
The second floor holds the main bedroom with an ensuite bathroom that includes a jacuzzi tub, a custom-built walk-in closet and a private balcony overlooking canyon views. An additional four bedrooms with a spacious office round out the second floor.
Parklike grounds feature expansive lawns, mature fruit trees, a solar-heated pool, two-car garage and a large motor court. The expansive grounds also come with room to build a tennis court.
This house is reportedly where Adele’s ex currently resides.
2021: Lime Orchard Road purchase #3
Nicole Richie and her husband, Joel Madden, scored big from the $10 million price that Adele paid for this property. The couple initially purchased the home back in 2015 for $6.7 million.
Built in 1957, the house has also been renovated and expanded since.
Spanning 510 sqm, the home is made up of four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The mini-mansion wraps around a parklike backyard, where a big, grassy lawn is accented by stone pavers leading to a stone patio. Inset into the patio are a free-form swimming pool and a separate spa.
It holds a discreetly attached garage set out of sight from the main entrance and comes with a large hedge for optimal privacy. The home also features a half-court basketball court.
Because Adele purchased the home from Richie, 39, in an off-market deal, pictures of the home are scarce.
Adele and Richie have become close pals over the years.
For her birthday last September, Adele posted a sweet tribute to her friend. “Happy belated birthday to my daily dose of grace @nicolerichie I admire you and love you so much,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “You are the epitome of self preservation, self love and absolute savagery! You are so so cherished by so many angel girl!”
