Pharrell Williams recently sold his gorgeous Beverly Hills mansion for a whopping eight-figures. The record producer bought the house from Tyler Perry in 2018. Here's a look inside the home.

13-time Grammy Award-winning producer Pharrell Williams put his beautiful contemporary home on the market in March, and in September, the house sold for a cool $14 million, which was less than what he paid for it in 2018.

Williams purchased the 17,000 square foot estate from the "Madea" franchise director, Tyler Perry, for $15.6 million. The house didn't immediately attract favorable reviews for its unique design.

THE MANSION

The house, which Williams initially listed for $16.95 million, is characterized by huge glass windows around the 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, with marble stairs and connecting balconies.

The hilltop home features unique architecture with sloping ceilings and steel beams. The home is designed for entertaining with a motor court that can fit 30 cars.

The outdoors of the home is filled with awe-inspiring features such as a koi pond and stream, a gorgeous swimming pool with a grotto and slide, and a large tennis court, all overlooking the canyons and city lights.

Despite all the cool features, Williams had to let the house go at a loss of nearly $3 million less than his asking price. Of course, that may be expected as the house was negatively compared to an office building.

THE FAMILY

One might wonder why Williams was ever interested in such a large home. At the top of 2017, the "Happy" singer and his wife, Helen Lasichanh, welcomed their triplets in addition to an older son, Rocket, who was born in 2008.

In 2018, the N.E.R.D producer admitted that the family of six was assisted by a total of 12 nannies who took shifts taking care of the children along with the help of the couple's parents.

CAREER BEYOND MUSIC - HUMANRACE

Williams, a father of four, has often been the subject of compliments on his age-defying looks, having maintained his youthful appearance since he first hit the music scene in the early nineties.

The 47-year-old decided to capitalize on his skincare secrets with his own wellness brand, Humanrace which launched in November. In an interview with Essence, he said:

" Adopting a mindset that’s rooted in wellbeing from an early age is important."

CAREER BEYOND MUSIC - BLACK AMBITION

Williams, an entrepreneur, recently launched a non-profit geared at helping Black and Latino students close wealth and opportunity gaps that often marginalize minority groups.

The non-profit set up two prizes for Black and Latino kids in tech, design, healthcare, and consumer services, with the top prize winner getting up to $1 million and at least nine other teams winning smaller prizes.
