Together, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have combined their financial strength and accumulated a joint net worth. It enables them to make record-breaking transactions. The couple appears to be behind the most expensive private home ever sold in the state of California, TMZ reports. At the same time, it is considered the second most expensive deal in the entire US. Only an apartment in New York yielded more: $ 238 million.

$95 million haggled
They agreed to an asking price of no less than $ 200 million, the equivalent of approximately € 186 million. According to insiders, various negotiations preceded it. The 2,787 m2 building was initially listed for $ 295 million. But what the hell do they receive for that staggering amount?
Well, an L-shaped concrete villa in Paradise Cove, a wealthy neighborhood in Malibu. Unfortunately, we cannot say much about the interior and, for example, the number of bedrooms, because the sale of the property was handled through a silent sale. Fortunately, we do have aerial photos at hand, on which we see not only a swimming pool, but also an enormous expanse of grass. We also see that part of the main residence is sunken and that there is a view of the Pacific Ocean from the plot.
The property was designed by Los Angeles-based Japanese architect Tadao Ando. He also designed another villa in Malibu that houses an entertainment star. Kanye West bought a villa he designed for $57.3 million last year.
If Beyoncé and Kanye West run out of sugar for their coffee, they can probably turn to one of their new neighbours, such as the American-Ukrainian WhatsApp founder Jan Koum.
The moving boxes do not have to be brought very far, because the couple lives in star-studded Bel Air to this day. In an $88 million mansion to be exact. They also own lavish homes in Los Angeles, the Hamptons and New York City.
