Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has placed a two-bedroom, 2,374-square-foot contemporary-style oceanfront house and adjacent property that he owns in Malibu, Calif. on the market for $8,999,000.
Props to the hard-working fellow over at Celebrityaddressaerial.com for breaking the story of DiCaprio's listing of the oceanfront house and land on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, a listing that had come on the market on November 15. We had seen the listing a few days back, but we had utterly missed the fact that DiCaprio is the owner of said property. Kudos also to our pals over at the Real Estalker for their fine take the other day on the DiCaprio listing.
Records show that DiCaprio paid $6,350,000 on January 25, 2007 (deed recorded on February 7, 2007) through a limited-liability corporation to purchase the property that he's now trying to sell.
Built in 1954, the house is perched high up on a bluff, according to public records. Features in the house include two baths and "a collection of elegant open spaces," according to listing information. Outdoor features on the property include a hot tub, gardens, a four-car garage, a long driveway and a separate guesthouse with two one-bedroom suites, according to listing information. The house sits on a 0.96-acre (41,818-square-foot) lot, according to public records.
What properties around the country does DiCaprio own? It's hard to even know where to begin. His portfolio includes the following:
--A 1,765-square-foot house on Carbon Beach in Malibu that Leo purchased through a trust in 1998 for $1,600,000, according to public records
--A 2,633-square-foot house in the Malibu Colony that DiCaprio purchased in 2002 for exactly $6,000,000, according to public records
--A 4,551-square-foot house in the Bird Streets area of Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills that Leonardo bought in late 1999 for $2,515,000, according to public records (and which actor Tobey Maguire rented at one time)
--A 3,980-square-foot house in the Bird Streets area of Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills (next door to the one we just mentioned above) that DiCaprio purchased in the summer of 2003 for $3,780,000, according to public records. Check out the Los Angeles Times' Ruth Ryon's report on that purchase (and yes, it naturally has a few errors in it) that appeared on August 10, 2003.
There also has been chatter that DiCaprio purchased a unit in Manhattan's "green" Riverhouse building, which overlooks the Hudson River, along with previous talk that DiCaprio had purchased a small unit in the Hudson Blue condo building in Manhattan's West Village. A quick perusal of Curbed shows that DiCaprio never purchased in Hudson Blue because that deal fell through entirely, with the Hudson Blue later marketed as a single-family mansion.
