Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood reportedly purchase a 3,711-square-foot Malibu, CA house for an undisclosed price after it had been on the market for $5.45M and also for $4.95M

Husband-and-wife country crooners Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood reportedly are the new owners of a house in Malibu, Calif. that just sold and that until recently had been on the market for $5,450,000 and later for $4,950,000. The Los Angeles Times’ Ann Brenoff today breaks the story of Brooks and Yearwood’s purchase of the house, which is at 28020 Sea Lane Drive in Malibu. Records show that something based in Nashville called the 28020 Sea Lane Trust purchased the house on May 12, with the deal being recorded on June 24. Brenoff reports that the buyers behind the 28020 Sea Lane Trust are Brooks and Yearwood, and we have no reason to doubt that. Unfortunately, no exact purchase price is yet available; we should have one for you in the next few weeks. Built in 1958, the three-bedroom Malibu house that the country couple purchased has three bedrooms (or two, according to public records) and three and a half baths. The house sits on a gated and wooded, 0.56-acre parcel that is wedged between the Pacific Coast Highway and the ocean, and that has beach access, according to public records. Features include a master bedroom with hardwood floors and an outdoor patio with a fireplace, Brenoff reported. Brooks and Yearwood won’t be the only celebrities in the immediate area. Among Brooks’ neighbors is hockey legend Chris Chelios, who in 2003 paid exactly $6,000,000 for the 3,795-square-foot, oceanfront house immediately south, at 28026 Sea Lane Drive, according to public records. Check out online listing sheets for the house here and here, and take a look at a website for the house. Brooks and Yearwood also own a 2,400-acre ranch in Owasso, Oklahoma.

And, Brooks’ longtime house in the Nashville area is a 5,551-square-foot house on 19.8 acres at 1250 Genelle Drive in Goodlettsville, Tenn., which he purchased in 1991 for $435,000 from former Nashville Mayor Richard Fulton, according to public records. After Brooks’ divorce from his now ex-wife Sandra, she quit-claimed him her share of the house in 2001, according to public records. Brooks owns that house in his real name. Finally, Brooks also owns some other scattered properties in Tulsa County and Oklahoma County in Oklahoma.
