Ricky Martin is set to launch his own residency in Las Vegas next year, but in the meantime, he’s taking up residence on Los Angeles’ Westside. The Latin music star has bought an estate in the Beverly Crest area for $13.5 million, property records show.

Named the Feldman house for its first owner, the midcentury home dates to 1953 and is among the last major works of architect Gregory Ain.

The seven-bedroom, 8.5-bathroom house, extensively renovated and expanded to 11,300 square feet of living space, features an open floor plan with hardwood floors and a range of contemporary materials. Wood-paneled walls of glass bring in views of the home’s natural setting.

The master suite has a sanctuary-like vibe, thanks to a floating two-way fireplace and an inner courtyard. Also of note are the large soaking tub and waterfall feature in the master bath.

A long patio runs the length of the home and surrounds an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa. Accent lighting illuminates the three-quarter-acre setting.

The 44-year-old Martin is a two-time Grammy winner whose hits include “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” “She Bangs” and “Adios.” He will begin his residence at the Monte Carlo’s Park Theater in April.
