Avril Lavigne has purchased a Malibu home that luxury spec developer Scott Gillen renovated.

The singer paid $7.8 million for the home near Trancas Canyon, which was built in 1960, according to Variety. Gillen essentially rebuilt the entire property a few years ago.

It sits at the end of a long gated driveway on more than a half-acre lot near Lady Gaga’s six-acre compound.

The home spans 3,500 square feet, and is finished with the sort of high-end materials Gillen commonly installs for his projects and properties.

Those include exposed wood-beam ceilings and custom woodwork, along with a wine closet, an outdoor dry sauna, a pool, fire pit and a deck. The home’s backyard overlooks the Pacific. There is also a detached car garage with an additional bedroom.

Lavigne sold a Sherman Oaks home earlier this year for $5 million. She had bought the property with her then-husband Chad Kroeger in 2015. They first listed it in 2018 for $8 million.

She also owned a home in Bel Air for five years before selling to NBA star Chris Paul in 2012. [Variety] — Dennis Lynch
