Cher’s Former Beverly Hills Home
2727 Benedict Canyon Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Cher is an American singer and actress. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long career, which has led to her being nicknamed the Goddess of Pop.
Cher gained popularity in 1965 as one-half of the folk rock husband-wife duo Sonny & Cher after their song “I Got You Babe” reached number one on the American and British charts. She began her solo career simultaneously, releasing in 1966 her first million-seller song, “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)”. She became a television personality in the 1970s with her shows The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour, watched by over 30 million viewers weekly during its three-year run, and Cher. She emerged as a fashion trendsetter by wearing elaborate outfits on her television shows. While working on television, she established herself as a solo artist with the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles “Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves”, “Half-Breed”, and “Dark Lady”. After her divorce from Sonny Bono in 1975, Cher launched a comeback in 1979 with the disco-oriented album Take Me Home and earned $300,000 a week for her 1980–82 residency show in Las Vegas.
Description: “In Benedict Canyon, minutes from Rodeo Drive and behind a guarded gate, an incomparable equestrian dream unfolds across sixteen magnificent acres. Here, miles of riding trails meander through magical woodlands, winding back home to five deluxe stables and two horse rings. A 20,000 square foot main house, now being freshly reinvisioned, is invisible from the rest of the compound. The ultimate equestrian environment with a group of magnificent stables; a pair of pristine and white-graveled riding rings as well a tennis court with seating area, lavishly landscaped grounds, and more. A stunning 7,000-square-foot Moroccan guest house, soaring arched windows prove to be walk-through doorways to the landscape beyond. Moroccan tiles, hand-carved wooden doors and coffered ceilings create a richly inviting ambiance. Sequestered in the canyon just moments from the Beverly Hills Hotel, this vast treasure is part rustic, part refined and wholly without equal.”
