Gorgeous model/actress Kate Upton recently dropped $5.25 million on a Beverly Hills abode she plans on sharing with her baseball star fiancé Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers.

Built in 1976, the 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom home’s interior is filled with East Coast style, while the outdoor space remains true to Southern California esthetics. The couple can enjoy total privacy behind secure gates in the highly coveted neighborhood of Benedict Canyon.

Within the 5,521 square feet of living space are open concept living and family rooms that are decked out with French doors and high beamed and paneled ceilings. Many rooms on the main level open up to the grassy yard through the glass doors that seemingly blend the inside with the outside.

The opulent master bedroom is as rich yet serene as can be, given the space’s cozy fireplace and pitched ceiling. Dual closets give Kate and Justin plenty of space for each other’s expansive wardrobes.

Three more bedroom suites adorn the home, in addition to a private maid’s room and bonus room that comes with its own separate entrance.

The L-shaped property sits on a sizeable 1.5-acre lot that’s wonderfully landscaped and surrounded by lush greenery. Whether for quietly lounging or for entertaining guests, the outdoor space can do both, and comes equipped with a large asymmetrical swimming pool, various patio areas with mature trees piecing out of the stone-paved surface, and a tennis court.

The large eat-in kitchen features a farmhouse sink, large cooking range, and a dark-colored center island that contrasts the surrounding white cabinets and white counters. The kitchen opens up to a wet bar with its own center island, and the formal dining room offers plenty of seating space for get-togethers and dinner parties, which opens up to the backyard via glass French doors.

Kate and Justin will enjoy rubbing elbows with a variety of Hollywood types in the area, including Vin Diesel who happens to live next door. Not only are their neighbors well-known, so are some of the home’s previous owners, including movie producer Jon Peters, who’s responsible for the likes of blockbusters Batman and Ali. Before Peters, tennis great Pete Sampras owned the property.

The Sports Illustrated model got engaged to the Cy Young award winning pitcher this past May, then proudly showed off her new fiancé and engagement ring at the 2016 Met Gala. Buying a home together seems to be the next logical step in their budding relationship.
