Cher Relists Her Longtime Italian Renaissance-Style Malibu Villa for $75M
When imagining what larger-than-life icon Cher’s properties might be like, compact cottages or modest dwellings hardly come to mind. Nope, something just like this Italian Renaissance-style Malibu villa is right on target. Long owned by the singer, it just relisted with a $10 million price chop. ‘Believe’ you can afford it now? Well, you can if you have $75 million.
Dramatic in style and scale, the majestic residence is exotic and warm in its design and landscaping. The atmosphere feels like a true escape, a forever five-star hotel stay. And, Cher created it all herself. According to the Wall Street Journal, the superstar purchased the land in 1989 and built the 13,126-square-foot mansion by 1999, spending years in design and construction. So, this is not some casual celebrity listing. It’s Cher’s vision brought to life and is just as iconic as her fashions.
As one would expect, the 1.7-acre estate perched above the ocean is secure and serene. A gatehouse welcomes, or rather screens, guests at the entrance so only invited visitors continue on. From there, you set your eyes on soaring palm trees and the emerging home.
Made of the finest finishes and influences from around the world, the villa features limestone and marble imported from Italy and France, hand-wrought bronze doors, and custom hardware and tiles from Spain and Morocco. The primary suite fit for a Pop Queen channels Moorish design inspiration. Then, there are six more bedrooms (each with outdoor access) for guests to enjoy.
From the tennis court to the pool to the sweeping lawn, there’s tons of space to enjoy the sun and sea air. At the time of listing the property first last October, Cher told the WSJ she often entertained here including hosting larger “tented parties in the courtyard and pool area.”
Drew Fenton and Robert Kass of Carolwood Estates hold the special, and very pricey, listing.
