Gaga and Kinney Live Like Us in Pennsylvania Hideaway
Bride-to-be Lady Gaga and actor Taylor Kinney have been spotted in a Pennsylvania Dutch country love nest that cost less than the guesstimated $400,000 heart-shaped engagement ring the super songbird flashed on her Instagram page after her Valentine's Day betrothal.
According to Lancaster County Property Records, Kinney paid $390,000 for a three-bedroom log cabin in an area known as Willow Street in 2013. Willow Street, population 7,578 according to the 2010 census, is so named because its main street is lined with willows. (Who would have guessed?)
The house sits on about six heavily wooded acres that protect the home from any paparazzi who wander into the Dutch country. The single-story log cabin was built in 1995 and features three bedrooms, two baths, two fireplaces, and central air.
The Daily Mail, a British tabloid, has been all over the stars-are-just-like-you-and-me angle, with a big picture spread of Gaga and Kinney doing normal stuff around Lancaster County, the area of Pennsylvania where Kinney grew up and was a high school volleyball star. There's the happy couple attending a Kinney family baptism at Grandview United Methodist Church; there's a shot of the Giant supermarket where the super stars actually shop for food -- apparently they have to eat just like you and me, too.
Lancaster County lies in south central Pennsylvania, about three hours from New York City. Its major attraction is its Amish community, but it also is a rock-n-roll industry haven that hosts Tait Towers, which reputedly has the largest studio, set-building and rehearsal spaces in the U.S. (Tait Towers also reportedly built the sets for Lady Gaga's recent Monster tour.)
