Within Gwyneth Paltrow’s carefully curated real estate portfolio | Architectural summary


Paltrow and Martin made their first purchase in the state two years after their marriage, buying a home in the Hamptons for $5.4 million. Located in Amagansett, the ultra-stylish home measures 7,000 square feet and features five bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, all decked out in Goop-approved furnishings and decor. While the home’s color scheme is primarily pastel, the kitchen offers a somewhat more dramatic flair, with dark-colored timber cabinetry contrasting starkly with stark white walls punctuated by strategically placed skylights. Four years after her split from Martin, Paltrow married her current husband, Brad Falchuk, in the backyard. She still owns this property.


Paltrow and Martin later bought a three-bedroom, 3,892-square-foot penthouse in Tribeca for just over $5 million. Paltrow enlisted the help of AD100 design firm Roman and Williams—who also helped her map out her Goop office—to bring her light-hearted and sophisticated vision to life. The chic pillow had painted white floors, French doors, and a unique sofa swing. It also had an enviable 500 square meter terrace. A description of the unit on Goop’s website noted “pastel silks, hand-embroidered wallpaper and cool pieces of marble” that “balanced age-old techniques and antiques with a confident, airy modernism”. The house came on the market in 2016 for $14.25 million and was finally sold in 2017 for $10.7 million.


The pair then set their sights on the West Coast, paying $10.5 million for an equestrian center in the Mandeville Canyon community in Brentwood, California. The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom mansion was once featured on the cover of porch magazine as part of a collective showcase of nine different designers. The main house is 8,000 square feet and features high ceilings, a professional gourmet kitchen, wood-panelled walls and a built-in BBQ. The horse stable also has its own celebrity pedigree – it was designed by Kathryn Ireland, the star of Bravo’s Million dollar decorators. Paltrow still has this trait.


Two years later, Paltrow doubled her West Coast holdings, paying $14 million for a Malibu estate known as the Garwood Residence. The secluded Point Dume property was designed by world-renowned architect John Lautner. The four-bedroom post-and-beam pad has heated sandstone floors, a yoga studio, landscaped gardens, a pebbled pool, tennis court, and a sheltered backyard anchorage for a yacht. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Paltrow still owns this property.

Several years later, Paltrow made headlines with the purchase of a $4.9 million Montecito retreat that was considered a refurbishment that the Oscar winner razed to build a new structure. “It was like Gray Gardens. There were wild animals and swarms of insects there, but I fell in love with the land and the views,” she said. ADVERTISEMENT from the first time she met the estate. In collaboration with her design dream team Roman and Williams and Romanek Design Studios, Paltrow created a rural home steeped in intentionality. Architectural details such as high ceilings and hand-painted painterly wallpaper, as well as exacting proportions gave each room a cared for and calm feeling. Heavily influenced by Old World barns, the designers created something that felt “generous yet manageable” at the same time. This house graced the cover of March 2022 of ADVERTISEMENT, and Paltrow still lives there.
