Yesterday, both respected figures in their respective professions, Lupita Nyong’o and Selema Masekela, announced their love publicly, ending months of secrecy surrounding their relationship. To commemorate this jubilant occasion, the couple engaged in yet another joint venture, purchasing a multimillion-dollar property in the thriving city of Los Angeles.
The gorgeous Los Angeles property, which was acquired for the astounding price of almost $4 million, is evidence of Nyong’o and Masekela’s mutual enthusiasm for stunning architecture and the outdoors. This custom-built home is a genuine haven of modern luxury, nestled in the lovely Topanga Canyon, a delightful unincorporated region between the stunning coastal enclave of Malibu and the picturesque San Fernando Valley.
The design of the dwelling, which is characterized by the harmonious combination of steel, glass, and cement, exudes not only modernity but also remarkable self-sufficiency features. Equipped with solar power, backup systems, cutting-edge home automation, and advanced filtration systems, the residence demonstrates a commitment to eco-friendly living. Hidden behind a stately steel-gated driveway, the home rests on more than two acres of verdant, wooded land at the end of a quiet one-way street.
Floor to ceiling glass walls that display panoramic views of the ocean, undulating hillsides, and the alluring canyon make it feasible for one to be met at entry by the mesmerizing interplay of natural light and spectacular views. The living area, which has a warm fireplace and sliding glass doors that open to a spacious balcony, welcomes you to unwind and meditate. Not to be outdone, the dining area fosters a sophisticated entertainment scene with the help of a handy wet bar.
The deluxe kitchen, which features elegant bamboo cabinetry, exquisite quartz countertops, and a large island with seating, is a testament to culinary skill. Equipped with Viking, Wolf, and Sub-Zero appliances of the highest caliber, it is certain to please even the most discerning chefs and foodies.
The master suite is located on the upper level of this architectural marvel. It is a serene hideaway with a spa-inspired bathroom that includes an opulent soaking tub and a decadent two-person jetted steam shower. A flexible lower-level media/family room with its own private entrance is located below and invites sociable gatherings and entertainment. Another wet bar is conveniently located next to this area, and an ensuite bedroom that is currently being used as an office offers a quiet retreat for working or unwinding.
One is captivated by the meticulously landscaped grounds that surround the property upon stepping outside. An outdoor entertainment area with comfortable seating, a tranquil fountain, a comforting fire pit, and a fully equipped kitchen with a commercial-grade grill is available. In addition, a two-car garage and ample parking space for up to 20 vehicles provide residents and visitors with convenience and security.
Lupita Nyong’o’s illustrious career requires no introduction, as she won the coveted Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2013 for her indelible performance in the critically acclaimed film “12 Years a Slave.” Since then, the 39-year-old actress has continued to grace the silver screen, captivating audiences around the globe with her extraordinary performances in blockbuster hits such as “Us,” “Black Panther,” and the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy. Nyong’o has demonstrated her literary aptitude by penning the New York Times best-selling children’s book “Sulwe,” which promotes diversity and self-acceptance.
