How much is Pharrell Williams worth? Star puts $12M Hollywood Hills mansion with infinity pool on sale
Apart from establishing himself as one of the most desirable musicians in the past decade, Willams has also made a name for himself in the world of fashion
Pharell Williams has placed his Hollywood Hills mansion for sale according to The Sun. The ‘Happy’ singer is looking for a seller for his home worth $11.95 million, which comes with an outdoor cinema and infinity pool. The luxury house which is said to be a recipient of numerous awards, consists of five bedrooms, was designed by the renowned architect Hady Bezberg. It was built in 2007 and features floor-to-ceiling windows that have staggering 280-degree mountain, canyon and city views that overlook both LA and the San Fernando Valley.
The price he is seeking is a substantial amount over the slightly more than $7.1 million the singer, fashion designer and occasional film producer paid for the well-gated and heavily fortified roughly 1.5-acre property just over five years ago. The property boasts six bedrooms, five full and two half bathrooms. A report in Variety states the home's master suite includes a fireplace and a bathroom covered in dollar bill green marble. The west side of the house prevents the heat of the late afternoon sun while the glass-walled east side of the house opens to a yard and a long thin negative edge swimming pool and spa. The guesthouse is separated from the main house by an auto-court that doubles as an al fresco social space just below a viewing terrace outside the main house’s living room from where films and images can be viewed as they’re projected onto the wall of the outside wall of the guesthouse.
Only in March, the singer sold his Beverly Hills mansion for a whopping $16.95 million. The 10-bedroom and 11-bathroom glass house stretched up to $170000 square-feet. Williams sold it for $1.5 million less than its original price. His former property also featured koi ponds, tennis courts, basketball hoop and swimming pools, with a Jacuzzi and a bridge running across the pool. Before Williams, Tyler Perry was the proud owner of the house which was custom built in 1992. He also owns several residential properties in his hometown of Virginia Beach, including a waterfront estate scooped up in 2001 for $1.85 million. Not to mention the cool $30 million he dropped for El Palmar, a 17,000-square-foot compound in Coral Gables, Florida.
The singer’s choice of design and amenities for his homes shouldn’t come as a surprise as he allegedly enjoys a net worth of $200 million, thanks to his successful career in music and other ventures which have contributed largely to his impressive wealth. Apart from establishing himself as one of the most desirable musicians in the past decade, Willams has also made a name for himself in the world of fashion by collaborating with some of the biggest clothing and apparel brands.
In 2008, he co-designed eye wears and jewelry for Louis Vuitton before joining hands with Takashi Murakami on a sculpture at the Art Basel in 2009. He has also created a line of sunglasses of Moncler. In 2012, he launched the multimedia creative collective and record label called ‘I am OTHER’. His other endeavors include Billionaire Boys Club and ICECREAM apparel and textile company Bionic Yarn.
In 2010, Williams composed the soundtrack for 'Despicable Me' starring Steve Carell. He went on to compose the soundtracks to the sequel as well. “Happy” featured in 'Despicable Me 2' would go on to become a major hit. He also served as a judge on 'The Voice' up until 2017 from 2014.
The singer has put his fortune to good use by building an afterschool center in his hometown in Virginia Beach for $35 million, which provided internships to about 100 high school students. He is also the owner of the non-profit organization ‘From One Hand To AnOther”, also known as FOHTA, which is an educational foundation. The organization’s mission reads, “change the world one kid at a time by giving them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential."
