Country singer Kenny Chesney has paid $7,400,000 for a 3,723-square-foot house in Malibu, Calif. We can’t exactly call this an exclusive, but it’s certainly a purchase that has flown far below the radar screen, particularly for real-estate gossips like us. Some weeks back, Life & Style magazine had published a tiny, tiny blurb on the purchase (which we had missed), which incorrectly noted that Chesney (shown here with model Marisa Miller) had paid “$8 million” for a “mansion” in Malibu. In truth, records show that Chesney paid $7,400,000 on February 5 for the house, which is at 22355 Carbon Mesa Road in Malibu. The deal was recorded on February 27. Chesney purchased the house through his Nashville-based Grigsby Farms Trust, which isn’t much of a surprise, given that his mother’s maiden name is Grigsby. Built in 1992, Chesney’s house has two bedrooms, three baths and a pool, according to public records. The house has a large farmhouse kitchen, large living areas and outdoor verandas, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.53-acre lot include lush gardens and lawns, an infinity pool, whitewater views and an outdoor Italian oven and barbecue, according to public records and listing information. The house had been on the market for $7,500,000. Check out online listing sheets for the house – complete with photos – here and here. Chesney continues to own a 7,242-square-foot house on a 48.77-acre estate Franklin, Tenn., which he purchased through his Grigsby Farms Trust in September 2003 for $2,500,000, according to public records.
