Tina Turner Pays $76M for Waterfront Compound on Switzerland’s Lake Zurich

Legendary R&B singer Tina Turner and her husband, music industry executive Erwin Bach, gave their move to Europe a locus this winter when they closed on a compound in the village of Staefa, on the shores of Lake Zurich. According to The Daily Mail, the purchase follows Turner’s $50 million sale of her catalog; the buyer was BMG.

The property is known as the Steinfels Estate. Its ten buildings are distributed across grounds that measure about six acres. The property is about 100 years old, and features a stream and private pond, as well as a private jetty. The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee and her companion dropped 70,000,000 Swiss Franc — about $76 million at the present rate of exchange — on the property.

Turner, who retired from performing over a decade ago, has been a Swiss citizen since 2013; she gave up her American citizenship and moved to Switzerland when she and Bach were married. She has lived in the country since 1994.

Turner’s 1989 album Foreign Affair—which contains timeless hit “The Best”—perhaps foreshadowed her life trajectory in more ways than one. The album achieved Gold status in the U.S., but went multi-Platinum in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Taken in the context of her later flight to the region, it appears love’s got everything to do with it.
