In an extravagant display of wealth, international music stars Beyoncé and Jay-Z have reportedly splurged a jaw-dropping $200 million in cash to acquire an architectural wonder in California.

Their transaction is record-breaking as the grandest celebrity real estate acquisition to date. The power couple even got the mansion at a discounted price, as it originally cost $295 million.

The stunning property, situated in Malibu, was constructed in 2014, designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

The couple’s new house is 30,000 square feet big and located on a vast eight-acre land. Its construction took more than a decade and a half to finish.

The stunning modern design of concrete and glass overlooks the scenic Pacific Ocean. The mansion isn’t all about its panoramic views but also about tranquility and privacy.

With a huge lawn sprawling on both sides and Zen water displays, it is a serene retreat from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s busy lifestyle. The property also includes an infinity pool and a private beach that appear to be merging.

A Forbes report confirmed that the previous owner of this lavish estate was Bill Bell Jr., a prominent Los Angeles art collector and heir to soap opera wealth.

William J. Bell, his father, is famous for creating the classic soap operas “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless.” Bell Jr. bought the estate in the late 1990s for %14.5 million and personally chose Ando to design the modern structure.

This isn’t the power duo’s first venture into high-profile real estate. They had been accumulating a remarkable portfolio these past few years.

In 2017, they acquired a property in Bel-Air worth $88 million. They also own properties in the Hamptons and New York City.

This recent Malibu estate acquisition has outperformed billionaire Marc Andreesen’s purchase. His previous record is a real-estate acquisition for $177 million in 2021.

Overall, this recent purchase by these artists shows their keen interest in modern architecture and taste for luxury. As Beyoncé continued her successful Renaissance World Tour, Jay-Z has looked out for their businesses.

This tranquil estate will certainly provide a calm retreat for Beyoncé and Jay-Z. As they continue to hit records in real estate and music, fans look forward to a glimpse inside this new mansion.
