Rihanna, the Barbadian singer, songwriter and actress, is no stranger to lavish living.
The 35-year-old star has been residing at The Century, a celeb-approved skyscraper by Robert A.M Stern since 2014 and she recently upgraded to the “ Mansion in the Sky,” a larger penthouse on the 40th floor of the same building, for $21 million.
The purchase came as she prepares to welcome her second child.

Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, the sprawling, 9000-square-foot penthouse sits atop a luxury high-rise building, and features four bedrooms with eight baths, and a private elevator. The property was initially listed for $35 million in 2019 and was purchased by Friends star Mathew Perry in 2017 for $20 million. It was eventually sold to Nick Molnar, a famous entrepreneur, for $23 million in 2021. Molnar later listed the penthouse for $28 million in 2022.
Mansion in the Sky Features
Rihanna’s new home is truly the epitome of luxury. It occupies the entire 40th floor of The Century building and features a contemporary-vintage gray and white palette. Inside, the penthouse features sleek, modern décor, high-end finishes, and state-of-the-art appliances.
The large living room features a curved wall with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer fantastic city, ocean and mountain vistas both night and day. The living room boasts two fireplaces and multiple living spaces, while the gourmet kitchen is all-white and equally spacious. It features a marbled countertop, a large kitchen island with plenty of seating, and a table for casual dining.
For actual dining, Riri’s new residence boasts a separate dining room which, like other rooms in the condo, also features glass walls with stunning views.
Primary Bedroom and Bathroom
One of the standout features of Rihanna’s new penthouse is the stunning primary bedroom suite, complete with its own private sitting area, two large walk-in closets, and a spa-like en-suite primary bathroom. The luxurious bathroom features a deep soaking tub, double vanities, and a spacious glass-enclosed shower.
In addition to the spacious living room, kitchen, and bedrooms, the mansion in the sky also features a game room, a home theater, four outdoor terraces, a screening room, a wine storage facility, yoga and pilates studios, and an impressive, 22M-long swimming pool.
The Century building is an architectural masterpiece with amenities such as a 24-hour guard gate, concierge services and a fitness center.
Former Century Residents
Although the Fenty beauty singer is one of the most famous celebrities to purchase the property, she is not the first. It has long been a celeb-approved penthouse with big names like Candy Spelling, Elizabeth Berkley, Paula Abdul, and Denzel Washington once calling it home. Also, purchasing the property now makes Riri neighbors with Denzel Washington, who owns a $33 million penthouse two floors above her.
Not Her First Property
Rihanna’s new penthouse is a stunning example of luxury living. With breathtaking views, state-of-the-art amenities, and impeccable design, the Mansion in the Sky is truly a unique property. The purchase of this penthouse further cements Rihanna’s status as one of our time’s biggest music superstars and entrepreneurs.
But note, it’s not her first.
Besides her previous unit in The Century building, the Savage X-Fenty owner owns two other properties in Beverly Hills that are currently rented out, a Hollywood Hills mansion she purchased in 2017, and a beachfront villa in her country, Barbados. Riri clearly has a thing for penthouses because she also owns another equally luxurious rooftop condo in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. She is known for her keen eye for real estate and has actively invested in properties.
