Actor Billy Bob Thornton has paid an undisclosed amount for a four-bedroom, 2,544-square-foot house in Malibu, Calif. that had been listed for $2,410,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the purchase by Thornton, whose main home is his walled and gated, seven-bedroom, 11,012-square-foot Spanish-style mansion at 801 N. Roxbury Dr. in Beverly Hills, Calif., which he bought in 2000 with then-wife actress Angelina Jolie from rocker Slash for just under $3.8 million through their Benjamin Franklin Trust. After Thornton’s divorce from Jolie, his Bob Wire Trust took full ownership of the Roxbury Drive house.
Now, Thornton has added a Malibu house to his real-estate portfolio. Public records show that Thornton’s Bob Wire Trust purchased the house at 28927 W. Beach Lane on April 20. And despite the street name, the house and its 0.31-acre lot actually are several blocks north of the beach in Malibu, on a gated cul-de-sac.
Features in the house, which was built in 2002, include three baths, open living spaces, seamless glass railings, high vaulted ceilings, marble and walnut floors, double aluminum and glass front doors, and a living room with a custom fireplace, according to listing information. Other features include a dining room, a sun-drenched patio with slate floors, and an open kitchen with a massive island with Carrara marble and a custom glass bar, mahogany cabinets, a glass tile backsplash and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. The house also has a master suite with a private balcony, a walk-in closet, a bathroom with Carrara marble and mahogany cabinets, double floating sinks, a spa tub and an oversized rain shower, according to listing information. Finally, the house’s other bedrooms have large picture windows and walnut floors, two additional bathrooms with walls of marble, above counter sinks, Carrara marble counters and mahogany cabinets. Outside are mature bamboo trees, a large grass flat pad, terraced lawns and a two-car garage with built-in storage cabinets, according to listing information.
