The four-bedroom spread — purchased by the “Blank Space” singer in 2015 for $25 million — was built in 1934 by acclaimed film mogul Samuel Goldwyn (who co-founded Goldwyn Pictures, the studio that became MGM in 1924, and was the grandfather of Scandal‘s Tony Goldwyn) and designed by architect Douglas Honnold.
