When I heard that Lady Gaga (aka Stefani Germanotta) bought a $22 million estate overlooking Zuma Beach in Malibu, I kind of expected it to be something flashy and contemporary.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to see it’s actually a more traditional French Provincial-style home designed by architect Steve Giannetti.
The house was built in 2006 on nearly 6 acres.
The architect’s website describes this project as “An Equestrian Estate overlooking Zuma Beach in Malibu that was based on a collection of European farmhouses. Construction by John Finton and interiors by Madeline Stuart.”
It was featured in Veranda in ’06.
Here’s a shot of one of the bedrooms from that article:
Zillow reported about her new equestrian estate:
Lady Gaga has made her first California home purchase: a 6-acre estate across from Malibu’s Zuma Beach.
The home was listed for $24.95 million this summer by The Agency‘s Santiago Arana.
Property records show it was recently purchased under a trust for $22.5 million.
You can see more of this house in Lady Gaga’s documentary on Netflix: “Gaga: Five Foot Two“
In the documentary we see her celebrating in the house when she gets cast in the remake of A Star Is Born.
Time magazine named Lady Gaga one of the All-Time 100 Fashion Icons.
They wrote: “Lady Gaga is just as notorious for her outrageous style as she is for her pop hits. After all, Gaga, born Stefani Germanotta, has sported outfits made from plastic bubbles, Kermit the Frog dolls, and raw meat. And companies are catching on — Gaga has partnered with brands like Giorgio Armani on tour outfits, as well as Polaroid, and even pens a fashion column for V Magazine.”
Her property has a barn for up to eight horses, a riding arena, and a number of pens and riding trails.
The listing says, “This beautiful estate was inspired by traditional homes in the South of France offering breathtaking views.”
