The Tony Stark house featured in the Iron Man and Avengers films was nothing short of astonishing. With its state-of-the-art built-in AI system “Jarvis,” gorgeous ocean views, and all-around futuristic vibes, the Iron Man house is an architectural marvel perfectly suited for the Marvel superhero/billionaire tech giant Tony Stark. But does the home really exist? Keep reading for the full scoop on the Iron Man Malibu mansion as well as the Tony Stark Lake house and more!

Tony Stark House

Where Does Tony Stark Live?

The uber futuristic Tony Stark mansion featured in the Iron Man films is located in Malibu, California. The home is built on the edge of a cliff in Point Dume that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. In addition to being his swanky abode, it also acted as the site of Tony’s expansive workshop. This was the location where he designed/built his iron man suits with new and exciting features exclusively for kicking bad-guy butt.   

Where is Tony Stark’s house?

The address for the iconic Iron Man mansion in the films is often said to be 10880 Malibu Point, however, that’s not entirely true. Although that address is a nearby Malibu point along the Pacific Ocean, the actual location has no numbered address. The real location of the Iron Man house is Cliffside Dr & Birdview Ave, Malibu, CA 90265 – a state park where you can hike to the peak!

When designing the Tony Stark house, the creative minds behind the mansion wanted it to have all the poshness you’d expect from a billionaire’s mansion in Point Dume. As far as the interior design, however, none of its style was meant to reflect Tony’s actual taste. Rather, it was meant to reflect a lack of personal touches on Stark’s part…until you reach the massive garage-turned-workshop, that is.

The public areas of the home were constructed from a series of circular rooms all interlinked by hallways. The circular living room with massive floor-to-ceiling windows offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean below its perch on a Point Dume cliffside. Outside is a wraparound terrace that leads to the first swimming pool, while the second can be accessed through the gym. Finally, the cylindrical staircase of concrete steps takes you up to the bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor. Fun fact: the garage/workshop in the Iron Man Malibu house is 3X larger than the living room.

Is Tony Stark’s house real?

While we’d love to tell you that this incredible piece of architecture is real, but the Iron Man house Malibu, sadly, is a work of fiction. Stark’s futuristic Point Dume mansion was created using some amazing CGI and a whole lot of movie magic. Realistically, even a billionaire like Stark would struggle to nab a building permit for the location – it’s in a state park, after all.

While it’s true that the Tony Stark mansion doesn’t exist, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a house like it in real life. More on that later!

Tony Stark Lake House

Okay, so we’re going to try to do this without spoilers (seriously, if you haven’t watched Endgame yet, do it!). The lakeside cabin where Tony and fam were staying after leaving his swanky Malibu pad is located in Fairburn, Georgia. This equestrian estate boasts 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and sits on a whopping 2000-acre plot.

Situated less than 30 minutes away from Atlanta, the home features all the rustic touches you’d expect from a lake cabin. A spacious wooden wraparound porch allows for lounging in the shade and taking in the lakeside views. Inside, you can get cozy by the limestone fireplace in the living room or cook up some tasty eats in the wood-clad kitchen. And if the gentle sounds of nature are making you feel drowsy, you can always go upstairs and have a nap in one of the bedrooms. While the lake house is not nearly as posh as the Iron Man mansion, its charm is sure to make you fall in love fast!

If you’ve ever dreamed of staying at the Tony Stark lake house, you’re in luck. The home is actually available to rent on Airbnb. But like anything in life, it’s not free. In fact, it’s gonna cost you around $800 a night to stay there (I mean, did you expect Tony Stark to live cheap?)

The Razor House

Remember how we said the iconic Iron man house from the films may have a real life equivalent? If there’s any home that really encompasses the same vibes as the Tony Stark mansion, it’s the Razor House. Designed by architect Wallace E Cunningham, who was featured in Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers, the Razor House is named after Razor Point. The mansion, much like Stark’s, features a cantilevered design and plays host to some seriously breath-taking panoramic views of the Pacific.

White concrete stainless steel, and glass give the home a sleek, modern feel. The infinity pool off the spacious terrace blends beautifully with the ocean beyond, making it hard to see where one begins and the other ends. Inside the La Jolla California mansion, you’ll find 10,653 square feet of pure luxury living – with 6 bedrooms, 6.5+ bathrooms, and an endless supply of floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. If the views from inside aren’t enough to impress, however, there’s also a rooftop space that features a spa and outdoor kitchen. There’s even a detached 1,301 square foot guest house on the property for visitors staying the night. Though the Razor House does bare a striking resemblance to the Tony Stark house, it was never part of the Iron Man movies. While the home may not be owned by a superhero, however, it is owned by a superstar in the music industry! Back in 2019, award-winning singer Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz purchased the impressive piece of architecture for $20.8 million. The couple formally owned a 6,167 square foot penthouse in New York, but apparently decided more space was needed.
