OR MORE LIKE HELLO FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD
IN THE summer of 2016, Adele finally settled in her ‘forever family home’: a colonial style mansion (right) in Los Angeles. It is huge — 6,600 square foot — with beautiful outdoor space for the singer, her husband Simon Konecki and their son Angelo, five. The house cost £7 million. She lives relatively quietly in LA, but is seen regularly eating out at Nobu in Malibu and at the BOA steakhouse (where a porterhouse steak for two is £141) with old Etonian Konecki, who runs a charity. She also owns two neighbouring mews houses in Kensington, West London, which cost her just over £11 million. She’s said to have dropped a further £1.5 million on a house in London for her mother, Penny. Reports in America suggest that she also still owns the £5 million beachside retreat in Malibu which she bought in 2015 to be her ‘winter retreat’ after falling for the view of the Pacific Ocean from the infinity pool. All of which means that Adele, raised in a flat in West Norwood, South London, has a property empire worth around £24.5 million.
And she seems to be thinking of adding to it. In December last year she was seen touring three apartments in Chelsea, West London, including a £30 million pad with seven bedrooms in a high-tech block with 24-hour security.
