The couple, who have been together since October 2017, snapped up the white modern Cape Cod-style estate not long after it was placed on the market in July 2020. 

The roomy abode featured plenty of space for his two children Apple, 17, and Moses, 15, who he shares with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, to have quarantined with Martin and their soon-to-be stepmother.

There are a total of six bedrooms and nine bathrooms in the home that is 5,338 square feet and has two levels.

There is also a two-story guest house with a game room, living room, kitchen and bedroom for the out of towners.

The outdoor area is large and plush with a long swimming pool, attached hot tub, a lounge area as well as a dining area with fireplace, and a full outdoor barbecue section that includes a bar.

The property is gated and has plenty of security for the singer and the actress; mature trees also line the property for added privacy.

The living room has a fireplace and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding mountains. And the kitchen is huge with a marble top island.

The master bathroom offers two counters and a stand-alone white tub in front of a window.  

At the time, Dakota, 32, who also own a home in Hollywood, which she showed off in Architectural Digest last year, joked about her plans to be in therapy for ‘the rest of her life’.

The Fifty Shades of Grey star has been doing ‘online psychology courses’ in lockdown and insists she will probably be in therapy for as long as she lives as she enjoys learning ‘about being a human’.

Speaking on The Drew Barrymore Show, she said: ‘I’ve been so lucky to be surrounded by people who have encouraged me to go deeper into myself. Even during quarantine, I got really into doing online psychology courses ’cause … I wasn’t going to get into college, but I did these amazing courses. I’ll probably be in therapy for the rest of my life. You never finish learning about being a human.’

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old actress previously admitted she had a ‘panic attack’ before she sang for her role in Our Friend and admits it left her feeling so ‘terrified’ that she ran off the set as she tried to cope.

She said: ‘Singing in front of people is actually so terrifying for me. And we had to shoot the scene where you don’t even really see me. The camera’s in the back of … you can’t even really tell what’s going on, and I was meant to be performing in community theatre. 

‘And they hit playback of my voice, my vocal recording, and called Action. And it was like I had a panic attack that manifested in all the ways that it does, that it can, so, like, I just took off running. Running, like around the theatre, around backstage. I was running around, and then just started laughing hysterically, and everyone on the crew’s like, “What’s she doing?’ Running around, laughing and then started crying. It was like extreme flight mode.”‘

Dakota has had a number of difficult roles in the past and she previously admitted it ‘never got easier’ filming intimate scenes with Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey.

She shared: ‘I really had to get ready for it each time and know exactly what we were going to do and how we were going to accomplish shooting the scenes, the more intimate ones. Over the course of the three films, it never got easier. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, this old thing,’ you know?’

Last year Chris’ ex Gwyneth said she was still on good terms with Chris.

And she gushed over Dakota.

Gwyneth ‘loves’ the star, and has been spotted spending time with Dakota, as well as Chris and Brad, several times.

She added to Harper’s Bazaar magazine: ‘I love her. I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her. I always start to think of the ampersand sign – what else can you bring in, instead of being resistant to or being made insecure by? There’s so much juice in leaning in to something like that.’

A source previously said it was ‘very important’ for Gwyneth to ‘be on good terms’ with Dakota.

They explained: ‘She’s not at all threatened by Dakota and loves that Chris is happy – she’s very secure about sex and relationships and is not competitive in that way.’

And in October 2019, Paltrow even posted a sweet birthday tribute to Dakota. The Goop founder took to social media to mark her ex-husband’s girlfriend’s 30th birthday, by sharing a sweet picture of the actress.

Alongside a blue heart emoji, she wrote: ‘Happy 30th birthday to this absolute gem.’

And insider said: ‘Gwyneth really likes Dakota and she likes Chris and Dakota together as a couple. Dakota has always fit in really well and felt like part of the family when they all hang out. She’s very mature, she’s smart and she’s interesting. They have a lot to talk about.

‘Gwyneth doesn’t get too involved in Chris’ business but she does want him to be happy and supports him. She has seen how happy he is with Dakota and that’s a good thing for everyone.’

And Gwyneth previously insisted she feels ‘very lucky’ that she and her ex-husband get on so well and still share the same values.

She said: ‘I think in our case we’re very lucky because we see eye to eye. A lot of parents, and this is like a lot of consternation in marriages with functional and working, but parents don’t see eye to eye on how to raise children, it’s ya know, a common thing.

‘I think Chris and I are lucky because we really agree fundamentally how to raise the children. We have similar principles and values.’

And Dakota’s mother Melanie Griffith also thinks Dakota and Chris make an ‘awesome’ couple. The actress is a big fan of her daughter’s boyfriend and thinks the Coldplay frontman is a good match for the actress.

Melanie told People Now: ‘I love my daughter’s boyfriend. I think that they’re an awesome couple.’

This isn’t the first time the Working Girl actress – who has Dakota with ex-husband Don Johnson – has sung the praises of the singer. Speaking last year, Melanie gushed: ‘I adore him! But [ Dakota] is very private about her life, and I respect that.’
