Lady Gaga drops $23 million on tricked-out Malibu mansion
Lady Gaga has shelled out $23 million to bowl in Malibu.
Set on an ocean-view 6 acres, the gated Mediterranean-style villa she hooked was built in 2005 and features open-concept living and dining rooms, high ceilings with exposed beams and French doors. Oh, yes, and a two-lane Brunswick bowling alley.
Above the main floor is a master suite with a terrace, dual closets and bathrooms and a safe room. The lower level has the aforementioned lanes off a home theater and a games room, an 800-bottle wine cellar and a wet bar. There are 10,270 square feet of living space, five bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
A glass breezeway leads to an office, gym and elevator.
A saltwater swimming pool with a spa and a bocce ball court sit on the ocean side of the property. An eight-stall stable, a dressage ring and a guest cottage complete the grounds.
The singer-songwriter-actress, 28, got off to an explosive start with her 2008 Grammy-winning album “Fame” and its hit songs “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” which won for best dance recording. She also has won Grammys for best performance and music video (“Bad Romance”) and best pop vocal album (“Fame Monster”).
The seller was Dan Romanelli, founder of Warner Bros.’ consumer products division. He bought the property in 2000 for $2 million.
Santiago Arana and Mauricio Umansky of the Agency handled the transaction.
