Lady Gaga Buys Malibu Mansion with Bat Cave
A unique property for a unique lady. And although the Bat Cave part of the property is quite extraordinary, it’s hardly the estate’s most impressive feature. This is a one-of-a-kind, 6-acre property overlooking Zuma Beach in Malibu, with a 10,270-square-foot designer mansion containing top-of-the-line everything, and extensive and luxurious equestrian facilities, not to mention some of the best ocean views in Southern California.
The developer/former owner of the estate is Dan Romanelli, the founder of the Consumer Products Division of Warner Bros., who worked with merchandise from some of the studio’s most successful films. The Batman franchise was his baby, so he decided to equip his home with his own personal idea of the ideal “Bat Cave.”
It’s a subterranean suite accessed through a secret door and passageway from the living room, and includes an 800-bottle wine cellar, a home theater with bar, built in shelving to display part of this Warner Bros. collection, and, most striking of all, a complete 1960s-era bowling alley.
But that’s not the property’s only lavish feature. There’s a horse barn with stalls for up to eight horses, a tack and feed room, a large riding arena, four grass sun pens and two large grazing pastures, as well as riding trails that meander through the property. Of course there’s a large pool, and also a lighted bocce ball court.
Inside the Lady will enjoy a lavish master suite with a full gym, an antique stone fireplace, a private outdoor patio with white water views, his-and-hers walk-in closets, his-and-hers baths with heated stone floors and bidets, a deep soaking tub in hers, a rain shower/steam shower in his; and a custom safe room in his closet.
Orignally offerd at $24.95 million, Lady G is reported to have picked it up for $23 million. Get additional information and see more photos of this amazing property in my article on HGTV’s frontdoor.com.
