Cher, the goddess of pop, celebrated the opening of the film sequel “Mamma Mia” by listing her home in celebrity-filled Coldwater Canyon last week for $2.499.000M. Just as “Mamma Mia” is a revival, this funky, 4-bedroom home is a Tudor-style revival.
Originally built in 1957, this 3,000 square foot home sits on a 25,000 square foot lot at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by mountains. Clearly, this iconic legend values privacy. Cher had the entire home completely renovated when she bought it in 2013.
The same year, Cher bought this home, she listed and sold three other homes (one in Venice, one in West Hollywood and one in Malibu) for a total of $41M. Is there anything this Oscar winning best actress for “Moonstruck” and multi-Grammy nominated, sold out touring and multi-platinum album performer can’t do?
Ron Wilson, Cher’s longtime home designer, “helps” Cher implement the vision she sees in her imagination. Quoted in an interview in Architectural Digest two years ago,
Cher said, “I’ll tell him that I want something that doesn’t exist – a style that isn’t a style – and then he’ll make it exist for me.” Cher then blends ever-changing eclectic pillows, leather seating and carved wooden furniture, according to the listing photos.
Surrounded by a wraparound terrace, lush gardens, a koi pond and a meditation area, this Beverly Crest home features a rustic timber façade typical of Tudor-era cottages in the English countryside. Inside are high ceilings, wide plank hardwood floors and exposed ceiling beams. The master bedroom has two fireplaces and a sitting room lined in bookcases.
Cher continues to be a fan favorite for multiple decades and multiple generations in the arts and in real estate. Yes, her “beat goes on.”
