Ben Bostrom, the former pro motorcycle racer and X-Games gold medalist, has changed gears on his Malibu property, listing the home for rent at $10,000 a month. Alternatively, the home can be purchased for $1.995 million.
The Redding native previously put the house, found on a hillside in Latigo Canyon, up for sale in 2013 with an asking price of $2.495 million.
The three-level home, with ocean and mountain views, features exposed beams, reclaimed barn wood flooring and other rustic appointments. The 5,000 square feet of living space includes a designer kitchen with custom cabinetry, a family room, formal living room, den/office, five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
A master suite with a steam shower and a custom workshop complete with a hydraulic lift count among the amenities. Canyon-facing decks run across each level of the home.
Bostrom, 40, won championships in the AMA Pro Superbike (1998) and Supersport (2008) series before retiring in 2012. His brother, Eric Bostrom, is also a professional motorcycle racer.
Public records show that Bostrom purchased the property in 2007 for $2.4 million. Christopher Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is the listing agent.
