Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Buy Montecito Compound for $14.2 Million

New parents Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have purchased a retreat for their growing family. The two superstars, who both listed Los Angeles–area homes shortly after getting engaged last year, recently purchased a Montecito compound measuring a generous 8.9 acres for $14.2 million. They reportedly still own a Beverly Hills mansion where they reside, though Perry listed her second home in the area earlier this month.

Their new estate is situated in the Santa Ynez foothills and comprises four separate but contiguous parcels of land. There is a Mediterranean-style four-bedroom main house, a detached four-car garage topped by a guesthouse, and a poolhouse with two additional bedrooms on-site. According to Variety, the property was originally built by Edwards and Plunkett in 1934 and was later renovated by Lutah Maria Riggs, the first woman to be named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects.

New digs! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom purchased a stunning home in Montecito, California, after welcoming their daughter, Daisy, Us Weekly confirms.

Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom Buy $14.2 Million Montecito House

It’s looking more and more as though Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry plan to make the low-key but shockingly expensive seaside town of Montecito, Calif., their primary residence. The English actor and his pop music superstar fiancée — she a Santa Barbara native — have paid $14.2 million for an A-lister-worthy estate with nearly nine acres of manicured grounds, all of them with stunning ocean views from their perch in the Santa Ynez foothills.

Records reveal the property was sold to Perry and Bloom by high-profile businessman C. Robert Kidder, the former CEO of Chrysler and also the former CEO of battery juggernaut Duracell. Originally listed in spring 2019, asking nearly $20 million, the property’s pricetag eventually plummeted to just over $16 million before the Perry-Blooms scooped it up at a further discount.

Kidder and his wife Mary owned the estate for well over 20 years, and photos show they
