Gwen Stefani has just improved her “Rich Girl” status with the sale of her signature statement house in Beverly Hills for $21.65 million. With previous owners including Jennifer Lopez in addition to Stefani and ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, the house has definite musical cred, earning its nickname “The Summit” high in the mountains between Studio City and Beverly Hills.While the sale price is significantly less than the original $35 million asking
and the property has endured multiple price cuts
over the three years it has been on the market, it has still proven to be a financial winner for The Voice coach. There’s “No Doubt” Stefani is pleased with her tidy profit since she paid $13.25 million for the manse in 2006.Every inch of the estate exudes popstar glamour. The impressive 250-foot long driveway leads to the two-acre enclave’s 15,000-square-foot main house, guesthouse, detached fitness pavilion, tennis court and pool. With 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, and closets the size of some NYC apartments, space is no issue. There’s plenty of room to showcase her multiple Grammys and eclectic artwork with expansive walls and dramatic high ceilings throughout.The home was decorated by more-is-more maximalist Kelly Wearstler, an homage to 1930’s Hollywood glamour and Escher’s Metamorphosis. Graphic black and white patterns, occasionally jolted by bright colors, are all reflective of L.A.M.B., Stefani’s once highly successful fashion line. Always combining style with function, the home is a visual treat in every direction, juxtaposing the boldness of the interiors with gorgeous open views of the pool and mountains. The light-filled kitchen makes cooking a fashionable affair on a dramatic stage of black and white marble and horizontal stripes. Awe-inspiring views, combined with the vision of its new owners, The Summit is destined to reach new heights.Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
