Top property moves by musicians in 2023
In a ground-breaking real estate move, the sensational power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z bought a Malibu residence on Pacific Coast Highway in May for an astounding $190 million. This colossal concrete compound spans 8 acres, featuring a private beach, an infinity pool, and Zen water features, all accompanying the impressive 40,000-square-foot residence. Designed by the renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando, the mansion took 15 years to build. It now crowns the Carter family as owners of the most expensive home ever sold in California and the second-most expensive real estate deal in the entire country.
Next on the list, Grammy award-winning rapper and actor Drake is selling off his Beverly Hills Tuscan-style mega-mansion for $88 million. Listed in May, this stunning residence, with ten beds and 22 bathrooms spread across 24,757 square feet, was initially bought for $75 million from Robbie Williams. The property showcases exquisite features such as a wine cellar and a game room, complete with a captivating ocean backdrop.
Sir Rod Stewart, the distinguished British rock and pop singer-songwriter, has put his grand county estate in Beverly Park up for sale. Initially listed at $70 million in June, the property had a boost to an $80 million listing in December. Purchased by Stewart for $12 million in 1991, the giant 28,000-square-foot residence spans 3 acres. Featuring luxurious amenities, the estate includes a speakeasy, a total gym, and a screening room, standing out as a regal space within the heart of Beverly Park.
Located just five minutes from Beyoncé and Jay-Z, pop legend Cher is parting ways with her magnificent Italian Renaissance-style home, spanning over 13,000 square feet. Initially purchased for $2.95 million in 1989, the property reflects Cher’s inspiration from visits to Venice and Casa Casuarina, with luxurious materials imported from France to Morocco. After an unsuccessful October 2022 listing, it was re-listed for $75 million in March last year. The residence comes complete with an infinity pool, a panic room, and even a climate-controlled wig room.
