Part freewheeling early 1970s hippie trail, part trophy, part Hollywood Hills retreat, and part inspiring creative workspace, the wonderfully eccentric estate musician Frank Zappa who was his home for decades might just mess up the straight.
Regardless of; as there was Lady Gaga to take over as custodian of the tour-de-force residence so there will be another true leftfielder to take turns buying. They’re getting harder and harder to find, but they’re still there. This summer, one came with $6.45 million to take ownership of her Ladyship. She owned it for about five years and paid $5.3 million for it in 2016.
Life in LA would be so boring if all the houses in the sprawling area of the city were built by developers, wouldn’t it? And so a home like this is a contemporary tonic. The most unusual details: the handmade stone wall that allowed the right sides of different brains to work together towards a common goal, the mural painting, the painted ceiling, the mix-and-match reclaimed elements, the abstract wall and ceiling ornaments – expanding greatly on the original construction, a rustic, 1930s Tudor-inspired Laurel Canyon residence.
The house has three distinct spiral staircases, itself a facility for enthusiasts of that particular functional design adornment, as well as a wide variety of flooring materials and window styles and, of course, a recording studio, rehearsal room and the media vault that was explored in an article on Magnolia Pictures’ zappa in The New Yorker about a year ago.
But it is the property’s changing atmosphere that is perhaps most effective at accumulation; the house is something of a pop culture kaleidoscope. With seven bedrooms.
Lady Gaga stars in the biographical crime drama film House of Guccistarring Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek, and Al Pacino.
In terms of music, Lady Gaga has sold more than 129 million records. She has released five solo studio albums, all of which came in first place Billboard 200 chart except the first, which peaked at number two. She has also released two collaborative albums with Tony Bennett; the first, 2014’s Wang vs Wang, went to the top of the Billboard 200 chart and the second, 2021’s love for sale, reached the top 10. She also tops the Billboard 200 hit list with the 2018 soundtrack album for A star is born with Bradley Cooper.
