American singer and songwriter Katy Perry and fiancée Orlando Bloom have just purchased a gorgeous Montecito mansion for $14.2 million. Previously owned by the former CEO of both Chrysler and Duracell, Robert Kidder and his wife Mary Kidder, the property was originally listed for $20 million in 2019 and was reduced to just over $16 million in September. The expansive property spans 9 acres, consists of 4 parcels of land, and was built in 1934 and designed by Edwards and Plunkett. The compound was later renovated by architect Lutah Maria Riggs, “the first woman ever named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects”, according to Dirt. The over 7,167 square foot residence includes 6 beds, 12 baths, and features formal gardens, a full-size sports court, multiple fountains and sculpted hedges. A long, oak-lined drive leads to the Mediterranean villa. Inside the home, you’ll find gorgeous spaces that open to terraces with gorgeous views and lush lawns. The estate also features a guest house, detached office, pool, cabana, and tennis court to create the ultimate oasis. The property was on the market with Riskin Partners of Village Properties.
