Inside Cher’s Former Beverly Hills Retreat: A Luxury Home with a Star-Studded Past

In the exclusive enclaves of Beverly Hills, luxury homes with celebrity histories often attract considerable attention, and the former residence of Cher, a show business icon, is no exception. Recently re-listed, this property not only boasts of its glamorous past owner but also of its architectural charm and modern updates that enhance its market appeal.

Cher originally purchased the secluded home in 2013 for just over $2.1 million. Previously owned by Ed O’Neill of Modern Family fame, the home changed hands five years later for a slightly lower price than what was paid. Fast forward to today, and the property, following extensive renovations, is back on the market with a price tag of $4.1 million.

Constructed in 1957, this two-story house is nestled on a half-acre at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the Coldwater Canyon area. The home spans 3,089 square feet, comprising four bedrooms and three bathrooms, enriched by rustic wood beam ceilings and bay windows that contribute to its distinctive charm. Among its numerous features are at least three fireplaces that underscore its cozy ambiance.

The aesthetic of the house underwent a significant transformation following its acquisition by Cher. Originally reflecting a French country house style with red brick and beige stucco, it now sports a monochromatic olive green facade, giving it a more contemporary and streamlined appearance. This update extends indoors with lighter, wheat-colored wood floors replacing the previously darker oak, and a minimalist fireplace that modernizes the living space.

French doors from the living room open out to a tree-shaded brick terrace, enhancing the indoor-outdoor living essential to California homes. The kitchen, which overlooks the dining area through a breakfast bar, features modern appliances and a quaint breakfast nook.

The upper floor houses an impressively spacious primary suite, complete with two fireplaces, a wet bar, and bay windows that offer serene views of the lush surroundings. A luxurious travertine-tiled bathroom with a double shower and soaking tub complements this private retreat.

The grounds of the property are equally enticing. Surrounded by mature trees, the landscape includes various patios and decks, a synthetic grass area, and a captivating waterfall feature, making it a perfect setting for relaxation or entertainment.

Cher, often dubbed the "Goddess of Pop," has since moved on to other luxurious abodes, including her well-known Italian Renaissance-style mansion in Malibu, which is currently listed for sale.

This Beverly Hills home stands out not only for its celebrity heritage but also for its blend of traditional architecture with modern refinements, making it a coveted property in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
