Partly free-running hippypad from the early 1970s, partly trophy, partly Hollywood Hills retreat and partly inspiring creative workplaces, the wonderfully eccentric real estate musician Frank Zappa, who has been calling home for decades, can just confuse the straight set.
Does not matter; as there was Lady Gaga to take over as guardian of the tour-de-force residence, so there will be another true left-fielder to buy that tour. They’re getting harder to find, but they’re still out there. This summer, one came in with $ 6.45 million to take over the property ownership from her Ladyship. She had owned it for about five years and paid $ 5.3 million for it in 2016.
LA life would be so much boring if all the homes in the city’s large area were spec-built by developers, wouldn’t it? And then a property like this is a kind of modern tonic. Its most unusual details – the handmade masonry stone wall that allowed the right side of several brains to work together towards a common goal, the mural, the painted ceiling, the recycled elements that are mixed and matched, the abstract wall and ceiling. ornaments – greatly expanding the original building, a rustic-minded Tudor-inspired Laurel Canyon residence from the 1930s.
The house has three different spiral staircases, in itself a facility for those who love the special functional design decoration, as well as a wide range of floor materials and window styles and of course a recording studio, rehearsal room and media vault explored in an article on Magnolia Pictures’ Zappa in The New Yorker about a year ago.
But it is the changing atmosphere of the property that is perhaps most effective in accumulation; the home is something of a pop culture kaleidoscope. With seven bedrooms.
Lady Gaga plays the lead role in the biographical crime film House of Gucci, with Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek and Al Pacino.
On the music side, Lady Gaga has sold over 129 million records. She has released five solo studio albums, all of which went to number one on Billboard 200 chart save the first, which topped as number two. She has also released two collaborative albums with Tony Bennett; the first, the 2014s Cheek to cheek, went to the top of the Billboard 200 hit list and the other, 2021’s Love for sale, reached the top 10. She has also topped Billboard The 200 hit list with the 2018 soundtrack album for A star is born with Bradley Cooper.
