Hemsworth brothers’ Malibu mansion sells for US$4.9 million

A Malibu home that was owned jointly by Luke, Liam and Chris Hemsworth just sold for $4.9 million.

The brothers purchased the property in 2016 for $3.45 million.

Luke 40, Chris 37 and Liam 30 have had stellar careers in film and television since Luke began acting in an Australian soap opera in 2001, and the younger brothers followed in his footsteps.

Born in Melbourne, Luke and Chris live on the coast in Byron Bay, with their wives and three children each.

Liam is also back in Australia after his seven-month marriage to Miley Cyrus ended.

As the youngest and now unattached, it is not known if Liam plans to stay near family and friends, though rumour has it that he may have also recently invested in property in Byron Bay.

A nomadic life as youngsters moving between the city in Melbourne, the Australian outback and a coastal island, ensured all three brothers were free spirits spending much of their time exploring, surfing and taking part in school plays. The brothers gained popularity in roles they played in The Hunger Games film series, Last Man Standing and Ghostbusters.

Always close as children and teens, it’s not surprising that the three partnered to buy a family-vacation home with views of the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean surrounded by peaceful nature.

The 4,612-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath home was an ideal getaway for family get-togethers and was also near the film studios.

Striking modern architecture in an open floor plan captures the views and epitomises California indoor/outdoor living.

Securely gated, a long drive to the entrance, lush landscaping and exterior lighting create a welcoming ambiance for both residents and their guests.

Wide sweeps of polished concrete floors set off the white walls that offer space for art collections and the open floor plan that spills out onto the dining terrace offer room for entertaining, dining or enjoying conversation around either of the two firepits.

Included are a sauna, a 750-bottle refrigerated wine cellar, a home theatre and a library with built-in bookshelves.

The chef’s kitchen includes restaurant-quality appliances. Below the entertainment terrace, lawns and landscaping step down the hill with a peek of horses through the back hedging.

The master suite has Calcutta gold marble in the bath and two walk-in closets.

Eric Haskell of The Agency represented the sellers while Chris Cortazzo and Susan Saul represented the buyer.
