Lady Gaga Drops a Wad on Equestrian Estate In Malibu

BUYER: Lady Gaga
SELLER: Dan Romanelli
PRICE: $23,000,000
SIZE: 10,270 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 6 half bathroom

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Though her most recent album, ARTPOP, was both commercial and critical dead weight, show boating international pop superstar Lady Gaga still has the dough-re-me to plunk down $23 million for an ocean view equestrian estate in Malibu. That’s right, butter beans, that nutty, meat wearing beotch bought an ocean view equestrian estate in Malibu.

Property records show the seller was Warner Bros. exec Dan Romanelli and digital marketing materials show the gated, 5.98-acre spread, set above Zuma Beach with panoramic coastal views, includes a Giannetti Architects-designed 10,270-square-foot European farmhouse type mansion with five bedrooms and six full and six half bathrooms.

A long, olive tree-lined drive sweeps past the stone-faced front of the house to a parking lot size motor court. The manse’s interiors were done up by accomplished lady decorator Madeline Stuart and include a roomy entry and stair hall and a generous combination living/dining room with rustic wood floors, a 19th century stone fireplace mantelpiece, exposed wood beam ceiling and floor-to-ceiling French doors with ocean views. The high-quality kitchen, with custom cabinetry painted deep sage and white, micro-mosaic tile backsplash, is open to an informal eating area and a family room with vaulted exposed wood beam ceiling and another 19th-century carved stone mantelpiece.

A glassed-in breezeway opens to a courtyard with outdoor fireplace and leads to an office, gym and elevator. There are two guest/family bedrooms on the main floor with en suite bathrooms, walk-in closets and direct access to private terraces. The second floor master suite has another antique fireplace mantel, a sitting area, French doors that open to an ocean view terrace, dual walk-in closets — one with a safe room— and two bathrooms with radiant heated stone floors.

The fully fitted and kitted basement, accessible by elevator and secret staircase, level features an 800-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar, a media lounge with wet bar games area and a professional-grade two-lane bowling alley. In addition to the main house, the property encompasses a self-contained guest cottage with kitchenette plus a staff apartment. The extensive grounds include numerous ocean-side terraces for dining, lounging and sunset watching, a custom-tiled saltwater swimming pool and spa, built-in barbecue, a lighted bocce ball court and gravel pathways that meander around the grounds. Horse facilities include a 6-8 horse barn with tack and feed room and several fenced pastures and a riding ring.

As far as this property gossip knows, back in Miss Gaga’s native New York City she still resides in a rented, $22,000 per month two bedroom and two bathroom duplex penthouse on Central Park South that was formerly occupied — according to the lady herself in this Spring 2014 video — by Tony Bennett and Liza Minnelli.
