With the most exclusive 27-miles of coastline in America, Malibu is known for big waves, high-end boutiques, trendy eateries, and a crazy celebrity pedigree. The celebrity homes in Malibu are pretty dope, too!
Standing the test of time, Malibu has been the backdrop of hundreds of films, television shows, and music videos for decades, from Planet of the Apes and The Big Lebowski to Taylor Swift’s album Red and Two and a Half Men. Although it’s one of the most famous places in the world, it also provides a secluded haven for the most famous people in the world. Celebrities and Hollywood big-shots have mansions nestled throughout the winding roads and exclusive canyons of Malibu, but the concentration at Point Dume makes it the perfect place for a celebrity home tour!
Perched atop the cliffs of Point Dume, Sir Anthony Hopkins calls this red and white brick 4-story his sanctuary. He’s owned this 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom property since 2001 when he handed over $3.8 million for the 3,890 square foot colonial estate. The gated entrance to the home, pictured below, is completely surrounded by tropical trees and shrubbery, making it a challenge for anyone hoping to sneak a peak at the property beyond.
Anthony admits to being a busybody, always needing to do something, and this home is where he thrives. An avid painter and composer, Sir Hopkins hides away here between his acting roles and says if he had a choice, he’d never leave. Seriously, who would want to leave this place?!
Bob Dylan bought this property in 1979 for $105k. Since the initial purchase, the rocker has also bought up surrounding lots, creating a massive compound fit for a king – although the curb appeal is less than attractive. In truth, a super mansion is the last thing you’d expect to find on the dirt path leading up to the old, dusty metal gate of the property.
The main house is 6,029 square feet with 6-bedrooms and 7-bathrooms. There are horse stalls on the property, as well as several other structures which have never been identified, but one would assume there’s a recording studio. His presence in the neighborhood hasn’t been well received by all, though. Neighbors have long complained about the portable toilets on his property, which are reportedly used by his security. It seems like Bob Dylan would let his team use an ACTUAL toilet, right?
Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky purchased this secluded mini-mansion in June 2013 from Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan for a modest $4.8 million, considering. The 6,382 square foot, 2-story home, built in 1992, sits behind tall shrubs which provide lots of privacy. The property has 5-bedrooms, 6-bathrooms, a library, and a modest fireplace.
As for the exterior of the home, there is a stunning view of the ocean and the property itself sits on 1 acre of land. In early 2016, the couple announced they were moving back to Chris’ native Australia, which is when they sold the property for $7 million. They didn’t abandon the West Coast, though. In a nearby neighborhood, the A-list couple snagged a 2,000 square foot smaller place for $3.4 million.
Kid Rock purchased this slice of paradise in late 2006 for $11.6 million. He has listed and delisted this property several times since 2013. In 2018, the singer was finally able to sell this home for $9.5 million, which is $2.1 million less than what he originally paid for it.
The main residence spans 8,305 square feet, which seems huge to only have 5-bedrooms and 5-bathrooms. Some features to the home’s interior include a double-sided fireplace, open-plan living spaces, and a combination kitchen & dining room. As for the exterior, there is a partially-covered terrace with a built-in barbeque grill, a large swimming pool, and gorgeous tropical landscape. His primary residence is just outside Detroit, Michigan and he has been unloading several of his other homes for a few years now.
Julia Roberts is quite the real estate maverick in Point Dume. Her most recent purchase is a 1,770 square foot mid-1950’s ranch-style home, which she snagged for $6.84 million. Getting the house was far from easy though, since Roberts was forced to undergo a year-long legal battle with the sellers who were in foreclosure but decided they wanted a higher price.
It appears the home, which is located within a high-profile Point Dume cul-de-sac, has been renovated since her purchase, but public records show the home still has a modest 3-bedrooms and 2-bathrooms. The property sits behind a tall fence which ensures plenty of privacy. Interior features include beamed ceilings and hardwood floors. As the the outside, there’s a covered sitting area in the backyard with a firepit as well as exotic fruit trees and vegetable gardens throughout the grounds.
Julia and her husband Daniel Moder’s primary home is directly across the street from the one above. This massive estate is far more luxurious, spanning 2 acres on the ocean’s edge. The couple married in July 2002 and purchased this 6,144 square foot property six months later for $4.8 million.
Their primary home, built in 1964, boasts 5-bedroom and 6-bathroom. Much like their neighboring home, this property also features a gated entrance with lots of vegetation that only adds to the privacy factor. Some amenities that the home has to offer include a swimming pool, tennis court, and a private back patio that’s perfect for entertaining guests.
Gwyneth Paltrow and then-husband Chris Martin purchased this home, known as the Garwood Residence, in March 2014 for $14 million. The property features 3,650 square feet of living space, which was perfect for the couple and their small family at the time. The home has 4-bedroom, 3-bathrooms, and features a pebble stone swimming pool, a yoga studio, a tennis court, and a gym.
The property also has a private beach with protected anchorage for for a yacht. Fancy. There’s also lots of lush tropical landscape that surrounds the home, further enhancing its appeal. Additionally, the home was designed by architect John Lautner in the early 1970s.
In 1998, Saxophonist Kenny G coughed up $12.5 million for this 5,476 square foot estate. This is the musician’s primary residence. It’s easy to see why the guy wanted this place, the view of the Pacific Ocean in itself is to die for!
In 2000 he bought the adjacent lot before building a $3.5 million, 3,500 square foot retreat. Continuing the opulence, in 2008 he expanded his compound yet again by dropping another $2.85 million for the neighboring 3,916 square foot property. All in all, he’s got a whopping 13,000 square feet of oceanfront luxury. Additional features to the property include a library/office combo, multiple fireplaces throughout various parts of the main house, a gourmet kitchen, a waterfall, a swimming pool, a spa, a koi pond, and a meditation garden.
Pink and husband Carey Hart finally sold this Zen-inspired property for $12.5 million in October 2016. It took several price cuts and months on the market before they finally found a buyer. They bought the 7,450 square foot property in October 2010 for $11.85 million.
The Balinese-inspired home, located in a gated community, is protected by a huge fence and lots of vegetation. The spacious abode boasts 5-bedrooms, 7-bathrooms, and is outfitted with a seemingly obnoxious 5 fireplaces. You can also expect to find several life-sized Buddha statues, a swimming pool & hot tub, and a guest house on the property decked out with a full kitchen for staff.
Barbra Streisand detailed her journey to design her dream home in her 2010 book “My Passion for Design”. She actually designed every inch of the oceanfront estate. The property consists of 4 separate buildings that are titled the barn, grandma’s house, the mill house, and the main house. The entire compound, which sits on 3-acres of land, is rumored to be worth $100 million.
Space is definitely not an issue in this place. In addition to the numerous other structures on the property, Barbara also built a mall in the basement to display all of her antiques and memorabilia instead of just storing them. The main house features 8-bedrooms, 11-bathrooms, and a whopping 10,485 square-feet of living space.
