Kravitz went to Brazil first on tour and fell in love with the country. Just after his tour, the rockstar visited the house and… well, now it’s his. The (now) home of Lenny Kravitz has a beautiful landscape, surrounded by mountains and waterfalls.

Two years after the buy, the singer came back to Brazil and acquired a nearly 1,000-acre spread to continue with the farm operations. The home is now a stress-free and relaxed place to welcome friends and family.
