Halle Berry, the renowned actress known for her performances in films like Monster’s Ball and Catwoman, is making headlines in the real estate market as she puts her Malibu beachfront property up for sale.
Berry’s dream of living near the ocean came true in 2004 when she acquired this contemporary beachfront house for $8.5 million, according to property records.
The house, boasting high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and abundant natural light, served as a weekend retreat for the Hollywood star over the years, according to Mansion Global.
Now, Berry has decided to part ways with this seaside sanctuary, listing it with a price tag of $18 million. In an email statement, she expressed her desire to create a new and magical space for herself.
Nestled within the exclusive Malibu Cove Colony, this property offers approximately 18m of beach frontage and is situated just off Pacific Coast Highway.
Richard Ehrlich, the listing agent from Carolwood Estates, along with colleague Cooper Mount, is marketing this stunning home.
The residence spans approximately 473sq m and comprises three bedrooms, multiple decks, and balconies that overlook the majestic Pacific Ocean.
One of the house’s key attractions is its seclusion.
Mr Ehrlich emphasised that despite its beachfront location, it offers unparalleled privacy, situated at the end of a cul-de-sac with no crowds to disrupt the serene atmosphere.
Originally constructed in the 1990s, Berry undertook a complete remodel to tailor it to her lifestyle and vision.
The house’s design draws inspiration from the ocean, with curved lines throughout that evoke the feel of a luxurious yacht.
The primary bedroom boasts a fireplace and a cozy sitting area, while a loft, which Berry used as an office, features a fireplace and a street-facing deck.
Additionally, the residence includes a roof deck, providing breathtaking panoramic views.
Despite a slower luxury real estate market compared to the previous year, Berry’s property stands out as a turnkey and stylish gem in Malibu.
Unlike Los Angeles, Malibu does not have a mansion tax, making it an appealing choice for those seeking a ready-to-move-in residence.
