The cliff-top mansion in Malibu, once owned by country singer Kenny Rogers, hits the market for $ 125 million
A cliff-top Malibu mansion that was once owned by late country singer Kenny Rogers is on the market for $ 125 million – with a funicular that he got in trouble with construction officials for construction.
Rogers, who died in March, had the hill train built to give him easy access to the beach below – but did so without a building permit.
He was fined $ 2 million for the unauthorized construction of the luxury home located in Malibu’s Paradise Cove about a half-hour drive west of Los Angeles.

“Kenny had no idea he was going to have so many problems,” his wife, Wanda Rogers, told the Wall Street Journal.
The house is currently owned by Diana Jenkins, founder of the health drink company Neuro Drinks.
Jenkins bought the house in the mid-2000s for what should now seem like a $ 21 million bargain.
The five-bedroom home is located on 3 acres of land and features vaulted ceilings, herringbone floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The home comes with an office, study, and even a dance and recording studio.
Many rooms have panoramic ocean views. This bedroom is decorated in a calming color of sandstone
The well-equipped bathroom offers beautiful ocean views. No need for frosted glass here without prying eyes nearby
The main house has five bedrooms, while a guest house has three. The house has a cool and refreshed feeling
The house makes a statement from the moment one enters the foyer of the house. The ocean can be seen through doors
Outside is a deck and lush lawn beyond, with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean in the distance.
All guests who decide to visit the new owners can stay in a three-bedroom guest house on the property.
Visitors can enjoy the pool, waterfall and relax by the koi pond.
Rogers’ installed funicular leads directly to the beach where there is a cabana, wet bar, fire pit and barbecue.
Those who want to get some exercise to and from the cliff and back to the sand can use the adjacent staircase.
The property is Malibu’s newest mansion for over $ 100 million. Pictured, the impressive driveway to the house

Diana Jenkins, a Bosnia-born entrepreneur, is listing her home in Malibu, California for $ 125 million
Jenkins, originally from Bosnia, happened to come across the house when she was looking for a home for singer-songwriter Kid Rock.
“I just spent the day with them with no intention of buying,” she told the Journal. “But the gates opened and my heart just fell. I didn’t want more. I went back to London and couldn’t think about it. ‘
After moving to California and raising children, both of whom are now high school graduates, she decided to finally sell and move back to Europe to live closer to her parents.
“This house stopped me,” she told the Journal. “I should have gone back a while ago.”
