Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James has splashed out on a sprawling property in the Hollywood Hills.
The British writer bought a detached Thirties family home in west London three years ago for £2.65 million after her erotic novel trilogy sold 100 million copies and brought a major film deal.
Her latest home is a £5.4 million, five-bedroom, 5,616sq ft giant. The master suite has floor-to-ceiling windows that open on to private landscaped grounds with multiple terraces, a rear patio overlooks the pool and spa and of course, there’s a walk-in wine room.
Before her Fifty Shades success, James lived in a modest £350,000 terrace house in west London with screenwriter husband Niall Leonard and their two sons.
These days the couple split their time between London and LA.
