The pop star reportedly purchased the seven-bedroom ocean-side Hyannisport house last November through Ocean Drive LLC for $4.8 million, according to the Cape Cod Times, while she was knocking boots with Conor Kennedy, the 18-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
After that romance ended in December, the 4,400-square-foot property, located within the Kennedy family compound, apparently lost its luster for Swift, and has now been sold $5.67 million, netting the sassy singer a tidy $875,000 profit.
The colonial-style house, built in 1928, sits on more than an acre of land overlooking the picturesque Nantucket Sound, and features five full bathrooms, 13 total rooms and some improvements executed by “Swift’s team” that include renovations to the kitchen and bathrooms.
Swift, who has garnered a reputation for going through boyfriends like Tic Tacs, also seems to be getting some negative press for her lusty real estate purchases. She came to her own defense in a recent Vanity Fair article:
People say that about me, that I apparently buy houses near every boy I like—that’s a thing that I apparently do. If I like you I will apparently buy up the real-estate market just to freak you out so you leave me … One of these things I say to myself to calm myself down when I feel like it’s all too much … If there’s a pregnancy rumor, people will find out it’s not true when you wind up not being pregnant, like nine months from now, and if there’s a house rumor, they’ll find out it’s not true when you are actively not ever spotted at that house.
That’s all well and good, and I respect the gusto with which she defends her own honor. But if you’re dating a Kennedy and you buy a house within the Kennedy family compound, well, that writing’s on the wall.
Props to Swift, though, for turning a quick profit while getting in good with Ethel Kennedy, wife of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, who said, “She knows she’s always got a place to stay if she ever gets two free minutes.”
