Musician The Weeknd has given fans a glimpse of his incredible Los Angeles mansion as he puts it on the market for $36 million ($US 25 million).

Just last year The Blinding Lights hit maker splashed out on a full-floor penthouse at the Beverly West building in nearby Westwood for a cool $US 21 million.

And now the Canadian singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, is turning his attention to selling his palatial abode in the Hidden Hills, which comes with a basketball court, walk-in wine cellar and jaw-dropping pool.

The 1,244 sqm property sits on three acres and was originally bought for $18.2 million through a trust three years ago.

The home has plenty of room for guests, boasting nine bedrooms and eleven bathrooms throughout the main house and separate guesthouse.

The impressive contemporary home has gallery walls, striking high ceilings and wide-plank floors for that luxury farmhouse look.

The entry hall features a double-height ceiling and two-storey window-panelled front door, while his formal living and dining rooms are adjacent to the entryway.

Custom lighting draws the eyes from the dining room to the striking glass-enclosed wine cellar across the hallway.

The huge eat-in kitchen has two islands, while the adjoining living room has a wet bar and floor-to-ceiling windows, making it the perfect place for entertaining.

The Weeknd’s home in the celebrity-packed LA community also boasts an office with fireplace, a media lounge with integrated media equipment and a small fitness suite.

But that’s only the beginning as the home caters to motor-heads with a five-car garage, which is decked out like a disco with LED lighting strips embedded into the high-gloss floor.

Meanwhile, his outdoor living space features a heated dining terrace, a zero-edge swimming pool, spa and a pool house.

If you want to stretch your legs, there’s a full-sized basketball court discreetly hidden behind the pool house alongside a large barn and a small patio.

The Weeknd was catapulted into the limelight in 2013 with his debut album Kiss Land although his career had been getting much buzz since 2010.

He went on to win three Grammys; two in 2016 for Best R&B performance and Best Urban Contemporary Album then another in 2018 with his album Starboy winning Best Urban Contemporary Album.
