After a few near misses, Beyoncé and Jay Z may finally be buying a permanent home in L.A.

The cardinal couple of pop has put in a $120 million offer on a spec home at 454 Cuesta Way in Beverly Hills, Page Six reported.

The couple, who are expecting twins, have reportedly been planning to move their family from New York to Los Angeles for years. They are rumored to have made a $49 million bid on a 14,000-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills last spring but ultimately lost out to designer Tom Ford.

The mega-mansion on Cuesta Way has been quietly shopped off-market for $135 million, Page Six said. The two-acre gated compound, in Bel Air’s very private East Gate area, comprises six structures encompassing 30,000 square feet of space, with eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, four pools, a media room, a 15-car garage and bulletproof windows.

Irish firm McKillen Developments, which is known for redeveloping London’s Claridge’s and the Connaught hotels, completely rebuilt the property last year. The original residence, designed by Weston & Weston architects in 1928, had six bedrooms and six bathrooms. It last traded for $15 million in 2013. [Page Six]Cathaleen Chen
