Paltrow and Martin made their first stateside purchase two years into their marriage, snapping up a Hamptons home for $5.4 million. Located in Amagansett, the extremely stylish dwelling measures 7,000 square feet and boasts five bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, all decked out in Goop-approved furnishings and decor. Although the color scheme of the residence is primarily pastel-colored, the kitchen offers a bit more dramatic flair, with dark-colored wood cabinets popping in sharp contrast to stark white walls punctuated by strategically placed skylights. Four years after her split with Martin, Paltrow married her now husband, Brad Falchuk, in the backyard. She still owns this property.
Paltrow and Martin later picked up a three-bedroom and 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 airy and sophisticated vision to life. The posh pad featured painted white floors, French doors, and a unique sofa swing. It also had an enviable 500-square-foot decked terrace. A description of the unit on Goop’s website pointed out “pastel silks, hand-embroidered wallpapers, and cool swaths of marble” that balanced “centuries-old techniques and antiques with a confident, breezy modernism.” The home hit the market for $14.25 million in 2016 and ultimately sold for $10.7 million in 2017.
The couple set their sights on the West Coast next, paying $10.5 million for an equestrian estate in the Mandeville Canyon community in Brentwood, California. The six-bedroom and eight-bathroom mansion was once on the cover of Veranda magazine as part of a collective showcase of nine different designers. Measuring 8,000 square feet, the main house includes high ceilings, a professional-grade gourmet kitchen, wood-paneled walls, and a built-in outdoor barbecue. The horse stable also has its own celebrity pedigree—it was designed by Kathryn Ireland, star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators. Paltrow still retains this property.
Paltrow doubled down on her West Coast holdings two years later, 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 features heated sandstone floors, a yoga studio, landscaped gardens, a pebble stone pool, a tennis court, and protected 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 deemed a fixer-upper, and which the Oscar-winner razed to build a new structure. “It was like Grey Gardens. There were wild animals living there and swarms of bugs, but I fell in love with the land and the views,” she told AD of the first time she encountered the estate. Working with her design dream team Roman and Williams and Romanek Design Studios, Paltrow created a bucolic home steeped with intentionality. Architectural details like high ceilings and hand-painted scenic wallpaper, as well as exacting proportions made every room feel curated and calm. Influenced heavily by Old World barns, the designers created something that felt “generous yet manageable at the same time.” This home graced the March 2022 cover of AD, and Paltrow still lives there.
