The pop queen designed and built the home after her split from Sonny in the ‘70s.
In her five-decades career, Cher has gone from one-half of a beloved singing duo to a bona fide pop icon, with a long list of albums, films, Grammys, and even an Oscar under her gold sequined belt. But while churning out hit tunes may be her lifeblood, one could certainly surmise that her second passion is real estate.
Over the years, Cher’s bought, designed, and sold a number of properties in the LA area (the pop queen had three properties on the market at once back in 2013). And that first taste for seriously enviable properties may very well have started with this Beverly Hills home.
According to Variety, Cher purchased the four-acre parcel just minutes from Rodeo Drive in the mid-70s following her split from Sonny Bono. In 1980, she built a lavish, 10,000-square-foot mansion atop it—her first real home since the divorce. Cher lived in the home—which then had six bedrooms, a gym, and a cavernous atrium with an electronically retractable glass roof—for a decade before selling it off to actor Eddie Murphy for $5.9 million
