Singer Gloria Gaynor, whose voice helped shape the disco era with the ultimate breakup anthem “I Will Survive”, is looking for a buyer for her mansion in New Jersey, which is on the market for 1.249 million US dollars.
Gaynor, who released a number of disco hits that became classics, including “Never Can Say Goodbye”, bought the house in 1999 with her ex-husband Linwood Simon from architect Jeffrey Beer, who also designed it.
She did much of the interior design, opting for the contemporary style of the 8,000-square-foot five-bedroom property.
Gaynor has completely redeveloped the property, including extensive landscaping, completing the entire basement, and renovating the kitchen and bathrooms.
The facilities include a home theater with 12 reclining seats, a heated pool surrounded by a glass atrium, glass block windows, architectural ceilings, marble fireplace and floors, an executive office, a spacious garden with terrace and pavilion, huge shade trees and a party room basement .
Perfect for one of the greatest divas of the 70s, each bedroom has a large walk-in closet. Right behind the forest at the back of the property is a golf course, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
Gaynor said it New York Times that she has hosted many dinners, parties, and backyard gatherings over the years.
“I used to have a July 4th party, then a Christmas party, then a birthday party,” she said. “Outside I built a stage in front of the pool and people danced. Inside, people were watching football on TV or playing pool and listening to the jukebox. “
