Pop country superstar Taylor Swift is getting to be quite the real estate mogul. Just over a month after selling her Cape Cod-style house in Hyannis Port, Mass. for a profit of nearly one million dollars, the 23-year old star turned around and purchased an enormous mansion in Rhode Island for $17 million — and paid in cash.

Swift sold the house in Massachusetts after breaking up with Conor Kennedy. According to TMZ, she had been looking around for a new place, and toured the 11,000-square-foot-plus home in Rhode Island on April 15. The asking price was around $24 million, but Swift talked the sellers down to the low, low price of $17,750,000. She reportedly wired over the money after the deal was reached. Movers were seen at the house on Saturday.

The singer’s new abode — which sits high on a bluff overlooking the ocean on 5.23 acres — is a historic home built in 1930, designed by “an eminent Philadelphia architect.” The real estate listing for the property said it  was “thought to be the highest point of direct waterfront land on the entire Eastern seaboard, from Florida to Southern New England.” The home boasts eight bedrooms, 10.5 baths, and eight fireplaces.

Other amenities include a 36-foot-long parlor, a 45-foot-long paneled sun room, and an octagonal dining room with built in china cabinets. There is also an enormous kitchen outfitted with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a warming drawer and wine cooler, along with an adjoining sitting/family room. On top of that, the mansion boasts a five-car heated garage, a recreation room, numerous balconies and — of course! –  a bra-shaped swimming pool. Check out pictures of the house here.

Swift’s other real estate holdings include a compound in Beverly Hills, a penthouse condo in Nashville, and a mansion in a gated community in Nashville, where Swift’s parents are rumored to live.
