Per Variety’s exclusive, Gaga shelled out $5.25M for the eccentric Hollywood Hills estate where the late musician lived (and worked) for the most of his life.
The Tudor-style spread features a 6,700-square-foot main house with six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, as well as a two detached guesthouses and a staff apartment.
Plenty of Zappa’s signature quirks are still sprinkled throughout the estate, including hand-painted ceilings, salvaged porthole windows, and an East Asian-inspired dragon mural in the formal dining room.
A celestial bathroom offers gold leafed tile accents and metallic blue soaking tub.
Of course Zappa’s three-room recording studio—complete with a secret chamber for storing archives—remains intact on the premises, as does his personal library and art gallery.
The palatial property also boasts a rooftop tennis court, greenhouse, swimming pool, and multiple art-filled gardens. We’re not at all surprised that an unconventional star like Gaga jumped on such a unique space.
