Pop songstress Rihanna has put in the work, work, work to build an impressive real-estate portfolio of mega luxurious mansions. Besides being a top-chart artist, she's also killing it as a fashion designer, actress, and business mogul. She has accumulated top-dollar properties in Los Angeles, Barbados, Manhattan, Hamptons, and London. So, with all the houses Rihanna has, where does Rihanna live?

Robyn Rihanna Fenty- yes, Fenty is her real name- is of native Barbados. She was born in Saint Michael and has come a long way from humble beginnings in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Rihanna is easily the world's wealthiest female musician as one of the youngest self-made female billionaires, now valued at $1.4 billion.

Besides the impressive career portfolio, the internet is buzzing with this Barbadian-style icon who's also now a mother. She's currently dating ASAP Rocky, her rapper boyfriend, and they recently welcomed their baby boy together.

As a rising pop star and entrepreneur, Rihanna has wisely spent her fortune buying, flipping, and recently began renting out luxury properties.

Let's now get into Rihanna's glamorous real estate portfolio and know which of these houses is her current family home.

1. Rihanna's Modern Farmhouse in Beverly Hills Post Office Area

Rihanna owns a beautiful, expansive, modern farmhouse on half an acre property in Beverly Hills. The mansion is in an expensive upscale neighborhood in the Beverly Hills Post Office neighborhood. This exclusive neighborhood is on a cul-de-sac that carries celebrity homes to other A-listers such as Paul McCartney and Mariah Carey.

Rihanna's modern farmhouse sits on a half-acre estate and extensively spans 7,628 square feet. It's also conveniently just minutes from Sunset Boulevard and Beverly Hills Hotel.

Rihanna purchased this luxury farmhouse for $13.8 million, which is currently one of her most expensive purchases- on US soil, at least.

Beverly Hills Mansion Exterior

This modern mansion was built in 1938 and swimmingly blends contemporary and traditional design elements. It has undergone massive renovations to create this stunning mansion that ASAP Rocky and Rihanna live in.

Rihanna's house has five en suite bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a poolside guesthouse. The well-manicured central courtyard features a lovely outdoor spa, terrace, pool, fire pit, lit-up swimming pool, hot tub, and other outdoor entertaining spaces.

Here's what that looks like:

The house also has a second pool at the back. Here's how that looks:

Let's now dive into the interior space of the Beverly Hills mansion.

2. Rihanna's Second House in Beverly Hills

Rihanna decided to buy the house next door to her first Beverly Hills property- which wasn't originally listed but somehow, she made it happen.

Buying adjoining properties, 'land banking,' is a popular trend among many multimillionaires and celebrities who double up on their living space. This is one way to make the property far more valuable and get more privacy as well.

This Tudor-style house was sold in 2015 for $5.1 million, but Rihanna made a $10 million offer on this 3,500+ square feet of living space. So the couple who sold it made double their money in this deal.

These symmetrical homes were charmingly designed to weather cold and rainy climates. The popularity of this distinct Tudor style structure dates back to the early 20th century, with a revival of the English domestic architecture from the Medieval and post-Medieval styles.

This family-sized house was originally built in the late 1930s and features four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms on a 3,500+ square feet area. It has a lush green backyard with an oversize swimming pool and wood beams that largely define the home. The airy backyard is perfect for hosting guests on a lovely Sunday afternoon.

Rihanna has made several design improvements to this Tudor-style home next door, including a modern interior with a formal living/ dining room and an eat-in kitchen. The kitchen connects to the family room, overlooking the lush backyard and large swimming pool.

The family room connects to the open-plan wooden-themed eat-in kitchen. Here's a picture:

The kitchen also connects to a minimalistic and formal dining room with a fireplace and full wall window overlooking the backyard.

The house also contains a white-themed formal room with a minimalistic touch.

With both properties combined, Rihanna owns over an acre of land and more than 11,000 square feet of living space in Beverly Hills.

3. Rihanna's Neo-Mediterranean-style Mansion in Hollywood Hills

Rihanna owns a contemporary-style farmhouse mansion in Los Angeles, Hollywood Hills, which she bought in 2017 for $ 6.8 million. Its contemporary style decor is largely defined by subtle sophistication that's simple but deliberate in using clean lines and texture.

It is located at the base of the Nichols Canyon and sits above Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. It also overlooks some of the most brilliant Sunset Strip views in LA. The home has a stunning view with large windows that open up to the surrounding palm trees and foothills.

This 7,130-square-foot neo-Mediterranean style mansion in Hollywood Hills has six bedrooms and ten bathrooms. It's the epitome of modern glam with features such as a terracotta-tiled rooftop, outdoor lounge area, classic stucco exterior, etc.

The 7,130-square-foot mansion was originally built in 2015 and has undergone several renovations to make it the luxury mansion it is today. The space also consists of a beautiful infinity pool, a billiard room, a guest house transformed into an over-the-top indoor gym, and ample parking space.

The pool area is well lit with a lit-up pool.

The luxury house has an extensive exterior which ushers you into the gorgeous interior.

Rihanna's Farmhouse Interior

The interior space showcases more of the palatial space rather than the decoration. It has steel-framed and glass double doors that open up to the foyer, with high ceilings, abounding windows, and arched doorways.

It stays true to its Mediterranean aesthetic in design and artwork with a combination of stone and wooden floors for that homely earthen palette.

The massive hallways in the interior have floor-to-ceiling doors with metal accents that adorn the walls. In addition, the hallways contain unique, textured window details, warm floor finishes, and neo-modern light fixtures.

These hallways then proceed to the incredibly spacious living area adorned with marble floors and a grand fireplace. The beautiful chandelier adds a homely feel, while the gigantic wood-lined mirror compliments the minimalistic space in the large room.

Further up is a formal living room with a copper-colored fireplace and a miniature chandelier that particularly stands out.

The formal room connects to an eclectic formal dining room. The dining room has high ceilings and large arched windows that flood the space with natural light from the canyon beyond floods the room.

Next is the family room with wooden floors, a cozy fireplace, a tray ceiling, and an outstandingly lit arched inset shelf.

The family room directs you to a tiled well-equipped chef's kitchen composed of an exquisite L-shaped black marble island, bar, and backlit ceiling beams. The chef's kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances, gleaming marble countertops, and rich hardwood cabinets.

The second floor of the farmhouse consists of three guest bedrooms with a primary bedroom suite.

The Mediterranean-inspired bedroom is definitely fit for a queen. Starting from the separate lounge area, the California King bed (—reminds you of that song, right?), and the gigantic bathroom with a spa-like bathtub.

The private balcony makes a great relaxing area.

The balcony has a 180-degree view of the scene.

The first floor also houses an as dreamy guest suite.

Rihanna's home also features a list of amenities that include a state-of-the-art home theatre, a fully equipped indoor gym, a billiards room, a stand-alone tub, and a spa-like bathroom.

Rihanna did outdo herself with this one.
