This Is How a Best-Selling Author Lives After Her Big Break

While not everyone may be a fan of author E.L. James's racy 50 Shades of Grey series, it's safe to say that we can all get on board with her latest real estate purchase. The best-selling author has put her book earnings to good use, purchasing a gorgeous new Los Angeles mansion for just shy of $7.5 million. Nestled in the hills of L.A., the multi-level, 5616-square-foot home boasts five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a gorgeous floating infinity pool overlooking the city below. The home is replete with massive floor-to-ceiling windows, achieving a luxurious indoor/outdoor look throughout. Aside from the sheer space and enviable 360-degree views, the mansion also houses a walk-in wine room, massive closets for each of the five bedrooms, high-end kitchen appliances, a spacious pool deck, and an outdoor grill.
