Lady Gaga Reportedly Buys a House With a 'Batcave' in Malibu
TMZ reports Lady Gaga has made her first California home purchase: a 6-acre estate across from Malibu's Zuma Beach. The home was listed for $24.95 million this summer by The Agency's Santiago Arana. Property records show it was recently purchased under a trust for $22.5 million.
"This beautiful estate was inspired by traditional homes in the South of France offering breathtaking views," the listing description stated. In addition to a prime beachfront location, the home has an 800-bottle wine cellar, home theater, bar and a 1960s-era two-lane bowling alley -- all accessible by a "secret door" from the living room.
The bowling alley has been called the "batcave" because of the home's seller, Dan Romanelli. As the founder of the consumer products division at Warner Bros., he's behind the toys and apparel linked to the "Batman" movies.
In 2010, Gaga leased a home in Bel-Air, but the singer been known to keep quiet about her real estate purchases.
The listing agent was unable to comment on this sale.
