Home of the Day: A big league spread in Malibu

Home of the Day: Malibu compound once owned by a Major League Baseball player

This gated compound, on about half an acre in the Malibu Bowl area, was once owned by former Major League Baseball outfielder Danny Tartabull in the 1990s. A koi pond entry sets the stage for the contemporary-style home, which counts a sunken living room, a gym and a pool with a raised spa among its features. Three stories of living center on sweeping views of the surrounding canyons.
