“I want something just like this”, sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Well, why wouldn’t it! Written by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay, ‘Something Just Like This’ is one of the greatest hits of all time, and it still makes people nostalgic.
Speaking of Coldplay, how can one forget the band’s lead vocalist Chris Martin? Martin has been a part of the band since its inception in 1996. He rose to fame after the release of the song ‘Yellow’ in 2000, and since, then the band has been soaring high. But this time, it’s not the band because of which Martin has made the news; rather, it’s his personal life.
When the rumors of Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson getting engaged hit the market, the duo took their relationship to an all-new level.
According to New York Post’s statement, the couple recently moved into a newly purchased Malibu mansion, a prime property located just a few feet away from the Pacific Ocean.
We know you want to know more, so let’s dive right in!
The couple, who’s been dating since December 2017, purchased this Cape Cod-style house for $12.5 million, and according to Los Angeles property records, the sale took place on October 22, 2020, just a few days before they officially moved in. In July, the original listing for the estate quoted $14 million, so it looks like they bagged it at a discounted price.
A tour of the house
Spread over 5,338-square-foot, the Malibu mansion is fully secured with gates, fences, and other extensive security measures. It consists of a fireplace, six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and a two-story detached guesthouse, including a game room.
The main house has cathedral-like ceilings and is outfitted with huge bay windows and bright white shiplap. The windows keep the house airy and provide gob-smacking oceanic views. The beachfront house’s kitchen has a bright outlook with a huge island along with a pass-through window that opens into the dining room.
Apart from all this, the house boasts a home theatre and a master suite with an exclusive terrace facing the beach. Moreover, there are numerous living spaces with connecting doors that open up to patio space in the backyard.
The fully fenced yards provide enough space for a large swimming pool and an outdoor barbecue setup. The swimming pool is huge and is accompanied by a relaxing spa corner. Also, the house deed includes a permit to build a tennis court on the back lawn.
What other properties does the couple own?
Purchased in 2016, Johnson is the proud owner of a mid-century-modern house in the hills above Sunset Boulevard. Moreover, this mansion isn’t Chris Martin’s first Malibu investment either. He owns four more multimillion-dollar homes in the same area.
