About five years ago, in 2015, when just 22, Miley Cyrus ponied up a very adult $5 million for a relaxed country spread in in L.A.’s guard-gated, equestrian-oriented and celeb-favored Hidden Hills enclave. So the celebrity real estate scuttlebutt goes, the country music scion turned international pop cynosure kept horses on the pastoral five-acre farm. The following year, she bought a secluded house out in Malibu that was sold earlier this year for $1.7 million, a fortune less than the slightly-more-than $2.5 million she paid. And then, in 2017, she dropped $5.8 million on a 30-some-acre country estate about 25 miles outside of downtown Nashville, which she still owns, before she sold the Hidden Hills property in the spring of 2018 for the familiar price of $5 million.
As a side note, some might argue the world’s most famous twerker missed the real estate boat with the 2018 sale. After it was acquired by a not-famous woman, who tore everything down, completely re-graded the property and had plans drawn up for an 18,000-square-foot compound, the five-acre parcel, along with the plans, was sold to maybe-not-as-rich-as-she-says-she-is cosmetics tycoon Kylie Jenner for a whopping $14.9 million. For the mathematically challenged, that’s nearly three times what Cyrus got!
