The golden duo of US music Beyoncé and Jay-Z has achieved a new record. Together they bought a new super villa in Malibu (Los Angeles), which turns out to be the most expensive in all of California. The villa – designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando for an initial value of 295 million dollars – was purchased by the couple at a cost of 200 million dollars. Note: paid in cash.
The property – whose construction took about fifteen years – is surrounded by 40,000 square meters of garden and is located on a promontory overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The villa was sold to the couple by the collector William Bell, who in 2003 had already bought the property for 14.5 million. The house – made up of a modern mix of gl and concrete – has a swimming pool, some water features, a helipad and even a not exactly small outbuilding.
“This is the second most expensive property in the country – reads the TMZ website – in first place a New York apartment worth 238 million dollars”.

In fact, in the more general picture of the United States, the record seems to remain the prerogative of the entrepreneur Ken Griffin, who – in 2019 – bought a $ 238 million house in Central Park (New York). With their purchase, Beyoncé and Jay Z have therefore “only” surped the supremacy of the entrepreneur Marc Andreessen, whose house – moreover close to that of the couple – has a value of 177 million dollars.
