Hunky pop star Ricky Martin just bought a gloriously reimagined estate in the Beverly Crest neighborhood of Beverly Hills, Calif., for $13.5 million, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book.

The original house on the property was built in 1953 and had four bedrooms, two baths and walls of windows. A local builder paid $3.5 million for the property in January 2014, tore the structure down to the studs, and rebuilt it from scratch using the original footprint.

The resulting mansion is 11,300 square feet with seven bedrooms and 8.5 baths. It features white oak flooring, a wet bar, and walls of glass looking onto a nearly 1-acre yard. The master suite has a three-sided fireplace and his-and-his bathrooms — Martin is engaged to Jwan Yosef, a Swedish painter and artist. Outside there’s an infinity-edge pool, parking for nine cars, and a 2,000-square-foot “secluded wellness center.”

After the extensive renovations, the home re-emerged on the market in May 2016 with a list price of $16.9 million. Six months and a couple of price cuts later, the former Menudo frontman scored himself a 90210 deal.

Martin’s new neighbors include A-listers Sandra Bullock, James Murdoch (younger son of media mogul Rupert) and Dr. Phil, Yolanda says. The singer, 44, is best known for his inescapable hits “Livin’ la Vida Loca” and “She Bangs.”
