Meghan Trainor Buys Rockstar-Worthy Encino Mansion
She's known for being all about that bass, but this Christmas season, Meghan Trainor is all about the bling. The Nantucket native has spent $ 6.6 million on a dizzyingly dazzling mansion in LA's upscale Encino neighborhood, home to many other celebrity musicians - including Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson, and Jennifer Lopez - recently bought houses.
Trainor bought the 1.1-acre estate from Doug Jordan, the 31-year-old rapper better known as TMG Fresh, and the older son of great Democratic political boosters Wayne Jordan and Quinn Delaney. Jordan sold the place after only two years of ownership with a loss of $ 35,000 on paper, an amount that doesn't include the sizable sums of money he invested in the nifty, Vegas-like custom upgrades of the property that LED enough - Track lights included to overwhelm the entire city with power and a state-of-the-art recording studio.

Although the heavily renovated house is impressively dressed, casual passers-by will be deeply disappointed. The fortifications ensure that the Trainor estate is completely invisible to the public, is hidden behind 10-foot gates and massive hedges, and is monitored by a sophisticated security system. Trees and terraced gardens characterize the park-like area.
Entrance guests will be impressed by the formal car space before being amazed by the foyer, which gives the caves several exciting new names and includes double staircases and custom chandeliers that give the appearance of a diamond waterfall. In addition, medium-brown wooden floors lead to the living room with a fireplace, which currently functions as a huge game room - with a pool table made of purple felt, a shooting station with plastic guns and at least one pinball machine.
There are also more traditional dining and family rooms, both of which lead to a gourmet kitchen that houses an array of premium stainless steel appliances and that are immersed in marble. Other highlights include an impressive black and white private office with custom-made glass-fronted cabinets, as well as a hedonistic master suite with a private living room, two closets in the showroom and a spa-style bathtub. The master bedroom has a covered balcony that overlooks the back yard, which has a lawned area that surrounds a plunge pool equipped with a water slide and waterfall.
In one corner of the property is the two-story, detached guest house, where the property's former three-car garage now functions as a gym with mirrored walls and rubber floors. On the upper floor, the recording studio shares its space with a second kitchen / bar and a living room with another fireplace.
The 27-year-old Trainor, who is married to actor Daryl Sabara, also owns at least two other multi-million dollar homes in Los Angeles. Her primary residence is still a modern, country-style property in Toluca Lake, which was purchased for $ 4.9 million in 2016. and she also owns a smaller lot in the nearby Valley Village neighborhood that was purchased for $ 1.7 million later that year.
Jordan still owns his $ 7.2 million starter home in the mountains above Beverly Hills, although the Oakland native recently completed the acquisition of a Bel Air mansion in an exclusive gated community for $ 9 million.
Santiago Arana of The Agency kept the listing; Justin Paul Huchel of Hilton & Hyland repeated Trainor.
