Taylor Swift just made history by turning her Beverly Hills estate into a historical landmark. The Beverly Hills City council granted Tuesday evening the popstar's request for a landmark designation on her 1934 sprawling mansion.

Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse, one of the five-member council who voted unanimously in favor of Taylor Swift's application, told Mansion Global they were thrilled with their decision as they considered the estate "a true community gem." The 11,000-square-foot property that stands just behind the Beverly Hills Hotel used to be the home of Hollywood movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn. Goldwyn co-founded the American motion picture production company Goldwyn Pictures a century ago before it merged into the iconic major studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) in 1924.  

Property records revealed that Taylor Swift purchased the four-bedroom mansion from the Goldwyn heirs in 2015 for $25 million in cash. She then launched a restoration project on the Beverly Hills mansion after commissioned architects surveyed the estate's historic value. Historic features that remained unaltered since 1934 include outdoor features such as the pool, the tennis court, a curved patio sitting area and stepped terraces, as well as the property's backdrop of mature trees.

No other than the distinguished architect Douglas Honnold built the Georgian-style mansion that Taylor Swift now owns while various MGM set designers helped with the original construction. According to Curbed LA, the Goldwyn Estate hosted an impressive list of Hollywood guests such as Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich and Frank Capra. The mansion's indoor amenities also include a library, card room, a home theater with 35mm projection, a guest suite with a private entrance and staff lodging.

Taylor Swift's real estate portfolio also include homes in New York City, Nashville, Westerly and Rhode Island. The "Shake It Off" singer-songwriter has reportedly ventured on another renovation project for her Tribeca penthouse. The Tribeca penthouse used to be owned by another Hollywood elite, "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson.
