When she’s not writing platinum-bound albums and breaking hearts, Taylor Swift is writing to the Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission.

The international pop star is gunning for her $25 million Beverly Hills mansion to receive landmark status, the Beverly Hills Courier reported. Known as the Samuel Goldwyn Estate, the 11,000-square-foot compound was commissioned in 1934 by MGM producer Samuel Goldwyn.

Designed by architect Douglas Honnold, the estate on Laurel Way contains a card room, library, theatre, guest suite and lighted tennis court.

Having hosted the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich, and Clark Gable, the home was under the Goldwyns’ possession until September 2015, when Swift purchased it for $25 million.

If Swift obtains the Local Historic Landmark designation, the estate not only will be better preserved but also likely to appreciate in value.

The commission will review the application Wednesday. [BHC]Cathaleen Chen
