Listing of the Week: Cher's modest Venice home
The pop superstar just sold a 4,000-square-foot Los Angeles condo and is seeking a buyer for her Malibu mansion, priced at $41 million. Her Venice house is listed for $1.89 million.
If we hadn’t read it in Curbed and other online publications, we’d never believe this Venice condo belongs to Cher. It looks so understated, so normal and so the opposite of wretched excess.
Nevertheless, this 2,250-square-foot home is owned by the pop superstar, who has listed it for sale for $1.89 million.
The home, built in 2008, has three bedrooms and three baths and is on a tiny urban lot within walking distance of Venice Beach. Cher bought it for $1.54 million in 2010 and did an extensive renovation.
This is one of three Los Angeles-area properties that the superstar had on the market at the same time. Word is that her 4,000-square-foot West Hollywood condo, with Indian-themed décor by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, has just sold for $5.25 million, close to her $5.5 million asking price.
The 4,000-square-foot two-story condo in the Sierra Towers, which other celebs have also called home, has fabulous panoramic views. You can see a slide show from Architectural Digest here. The singer had owned the place since 2006, when she bought it for $3 million.
While it’s not officially listed, word is that Cher is also trying to sell her 13,126-square-foot Italian Renaissance mansion overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a bluff in Malibu, at a more Cher-like price of $41 million. The home, built in 1999 to the star’s specifications, has been informally on the market since 2008, when it was listed for $45 million. It was featured in Architectural Digest in 2002.
Cher, who has bought and remodeled a number of homes, told AD this about her Malibu home:
"Every room has two views of the ocean, each of which is so beautiful — the water is always glistening, the sunset always happening. My house is so special because it’s my sanctuary, my fortress, really — the only place I have any privacy. There’s no place else that I would rather be."
Los Angeles real estate is still very high despite the crash. Anything close to the beach is going to be outrageously priced. That's just the facts and reality.
any one who put up with sonny for all those years and is as talented as she is deserves what ever she wants. Don't forget she WORKED for all this it wasn't a gift.
Cher. Now there is one lady that has earned her way to the top and then, stayed there.
Loved Cher's show in Vegas. I heard that she received $300M for the string of engagements at Caesar's. But that's just hearsay, and who cares? She earned it all.
I attended school with Cher in El Centro, CA., these many years ago. Anyone that can pull themselves up by their bootstraps, out of that hole, is A+ on my list.
Sunriver you are incorrect... Cher has a new album coming out in a few months and a tour planned by 2014!!
I'm sure all of you could afford either of the homes she has for sale. That's the good news; the bad news is they want a thousand dollar deposit. Guess you'd have to drop out of the bidding. LOL
