Stevie Wonder just gave himself the ultimate Christmas present, shelling out nearly $14 million for a sprawling 11 bedroom, 15 bathroom Bel Air, California, estate.

Wonder, 71, closed on the home Dec. 14, records show.

With nearly 20,000 square feet of living space, according to Dirt.com, the iconic musician purchased the home from the late Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Faisal bin Saud Al Saud.

In the Bel Air Crest neighborhood, the Mediterranean-style property comes with an attached guest house and staff quarters.

Situated on over half an acre, features include walls of glass throughout the home, a primary bedroom with a sitting area and a balcony overlooking the pool and spa area, the listing states.

There is also a gourmet kitchen, theater, wine cellar that holds 2,550 bottles and a game room with a pinball machine, pool table and card table.

An elevator gives you access to all three floors.

The home spans nearly 20,000 square feet.

The prince had purchased the home in 2012 for $13.3 million. A year later he married Princess Madawi bint Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. The couple apparently didn’t spend much time in Bel Air.

In the last few years, the mansion has been leased out, most recently at a princely monthly rate of $75,000. Emanouel Ourshano with Platinum Estates held the listing.

Previously, Wonder and wife Tomeeka Bracy had been leasing another home in the same enclave — next to the primary LA residence of Gordon Ramsay. The Bracy-Wonders frequently stopped by to sample Ramsay’s cooking, according to the chef.
