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.
