Taylor Swift’s New Home Will Include a Moat, Human-Size Birdcage and Possible Unicorn Farm

Alex Blagg / January 27, 2010

Taylor Swift seems to be adjusting to her status as a country-music superstar quite nicely, thanks for asking. The 20-year-old Fearless songbird recently revealed the renovation plans for her 4,062-square-foot penthouse apartment in Nashville’s Adelicia apartment building, and it sounds like there’s a very special episode of MTV Cribs in the offing. Among the plans for Swift’s new pad: A moat-like pond around her living-room fireplace and, oh yeah, an observatory in the form of a human-sized birdcage. Swift explains,

”You step on a stepping stone in the pond in order to get on a spiral staircase, which takes you up to the human-sized bird cage observatory. They’re delivering a human-sized birdcage, which I’ll put a brass telescope in.”

Which is essential because, as Swift elaborates, “The ceiling of my living room is painted like the night sky.”

Sounds pretty sweet, but with all of that stuff, where will she put her Joe Jonas punching bag?

Oh, right—that’s more of a bedroom thing.
