Miley Cyrus is known for her single Malibu, so it seems only fitting that the singer owns a home in the said Californian city. 

The singer, who is famed for her aptly-name single, along with other songs Wrecking Ball, Angels Like You, and Party in the USA, purchased a Mediterranean-style villa in the Santa Monica mountain city for $7.9 million. The sale comes after she sold her Nashville estate for nearly $15 million in the summer. 

Miley Cyrus is already no stranger to Malibu, however. The Hannah Montana star previously lived in another one of the world's best homes with her ex-husband  Liam Hemsworth. She was also known to live in a Tuscan-style mansion in Toluca Lake with her family in the early noughties. 

This time, however, Dirtreports that the Tennessee-born star is making a new start in a European-style villa that overlooks the ocean.

The property, which was reportedly built in 1999, spans 6,500 square feet across above Malibu's shore. It has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and one powder room, along with an airy living space that celebrates Spanifornia decorating ideas.  

From the entryway to the grand room and kitchen, the home blends a relaxed SoCal aesthetic with quintessential European influences – with its milky white paint ideas to its warm wood tones and perfectly placed greenery. Like many villa-style structures, the home is designed to accentuate natural light – exhibited primarily through its sizable windows that welcome the sun into the space.

Alongside its living room ideas, the listing references three entertaining rooms and a formal dining room – while the images showcase a host of architectural assets, such as its sweeping arches and original fireplaces.

The white kitchen ideas are equally as notable, boasting strong granite countertops, top-of-the-range appliances, and a butler’s pantry that is an avid chef's haven. 

Each of the home's five guest bedrooms comes with ensuite baths as standard, and reports suggest that at least one of them could easily be converted into a gym, home office, or recording studio – since this is Miley's home, after all. 

And while the home's interiors are something to behold, the exteriors are equally as impressive. A large garden leads from the glass sliding doors, and there is a swimming pool and raised spa that overlooks the ocean. 

As the neighborhood is a favorite with other celebrities (such as Britney Spears, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Halle Berry, to name but a few), it is unsurprising that some of LA'S finest restaurants, bars, and shops sit only a short drive from the home.

According to tax records acquired from Dirt, the estate previously sold in 2018 for $5.8 million and was leased out before Miley's purchase.
