Gwynneth Paltrow buys a Mansion in Los Angeles for $10 Million.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin score $10 million L.A. estate
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and rocker husband Chris Martin of Coldplay, are long time East Coast residents, preferring penthouses in Manhattan and a large estate in the Hamptons for their home base. And although they recently bought in Los Angeles, it appears they stuck with the East Coast aesthetic, buying a gracious estate in Brentwood, foregoing the Spanish-Colonials and Mid-Century mods prevalent in the area.
The couple picked up the home for close to the current asking price of $10.45 million. The property first hit the market last year for $11.96 million. The home was built new as a concept house by designer Windsor Smith. The so-called “House of Windsor” was featured in Veranda Magazine and showcases rooms by multiple L.A. designers including Candace Barnes, Peter Dunham and Kathryn Ireland. The kitchen, however, was designed by Smith, who explained to the L.A. Times, that “kitchens are the new living rooms.” Her design includes Calacatta marble countertops, a deep farmhouse sink and enormous dining table surrounded by mismatched chairs.
