Home Vacation Inside Taylor Swift’s iconic $17M Rhode Island vacation home

Inside Taylor Swift’s iconic $17M Rhode Island vacation home

by Staff

She picked out a home called “Holiday House.”

Taylor Swift bought an 11,000-square-foot estate in Rhode Island back in 2013 for a whopping $17.75 million — which she reportedly paid for in cash.

The eight-bedroom property, known as High Watch or Holiday House, was built on the highest point in Watch Hill and boasts over 700 feet of private beachfront.

The home, which has eight fireplaces and 10 bathrooms, sits on 5.23 acres and features a sprawling back patio with a massive pool.

Before Swift got keys to the mega mansion, the home, built in 1929, was famously owned by oil heiress Rebekah Harkness for more than 30 years.

Although Swift never got the chance to meet the socialite, Harkness still made an impact on the singer-songwriter, who wrote “The Last Great American Dynasty” about her wild lifestyle.

In fact, Swift seemingly took some cues from Harkness — who was known to throw Gatsby-esque parties — and carried on her legacy by making the hilltop home the place to be every Fourth of July.

Although the private pop star, 34, hasn’t shared many images of the vacation property herself, several of her A-list pals have given glimpses inside the home while uploading images from the lavish bash — known as Taymerica — to their social media over the years.

Back in 2015, several of her famous friends — including Gigi Hadid, Joe Jonas and Martha Hunt — shared photos from the fun-filled weekend to their Instagrams.

Hadid shared a picture of herself playing on a make-shift volleyball court in Swift’s backyard and another photo of the three girls posing on a spiral staircase.

The threesome, who donned matching red-white-and-blue onesies, were all smiles as they lounged against the white rod iron railing.

Meanwhile, Martha also posted several snaps of the home’s exterior, showing the tiled patio with white lounge chairs as well as the pool area — which was decked out with inflatable toys and a slide.

Jonas, for his part, posted a photo of he and brother Nick Jonas putting Swift’s bar to good use.

The area had a vintage feel to it, with a built-in cabinet decorated with lots of small knick knacks — including a large “T” sign — as well as several bottles of various alcohols.

Several other friends of the super star have also shared photos inside the home’s white kitchen.

The cooking area boasts white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a gray marble countertop.

Swift, of course, also seemingly has a music studio in the home which gets good use when entertaining.

Meanwhile, the living space boasts high ceilings and seems to be decorated in neutral tones, with white furniture, tan walls, oak hardwood floors and white crown molding.

Some of the walls are adorned with vintage sconces, omitting a dim, yellow light into the romantic space.

Although the “Anti-Hero” singer took a break from hosting the star-studded party for a few years, she held a smaller gathering this past Fourth of July alongside BFFs Selena Gomez and the Haim sisters.

Swift shared a few snaps from the low-key party online, showing the kitchen as well as some her choices in art for the home.

Rather than lavish paintings, Swift opted for black-and-white photos of her friends and family — which seemingly line one of her hallway walls.

Despite having such a luxurious hideaway, Swift typically resides at her $50 million New York City compound — leaving the Rhode Island House at the dispense of her friends.

In fact, the 14-time Grammy winner reportedly offered up her saltbox house on the coast to Hadid and Bradley Cooper during the early stages of their romance last year.

However, the pricey pad is just one fraction of Swift’s over $80 million real estate portfolio.
