Robb Report vice chairman Bill Curtis lists Malibu home for $15 million

Bill Curtis, the former chief executive and current vice chairman of Robb Report, has listed a Malibu home befitting the luxury lifestyle authority for sale at $15 million.

Sitting on the desirable Broad Beach, the multistory contemporary was designed for indoor-outdoor living. Bi-folding doors open to various ocean-facing decks and terrace balconies, and a private swimming pool and spa extend off the lower level.

Inside, vaulted and white-walled interiors include a remodeled kitchen, formal living and dining rooms and a home theater with custom seating. A massive wine cellar, clad in stone walls and wine barrel floors, has a separate tasting room and temperature-controlled storage for more than 3,000 bottles.

The master retreat, with a separate sitting room, a fireplace and a marble-lined bathroom, opens to a balcony overlooking the ocean. In all, there are seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms in more than 7,500 square feet of space.

He bought the house in 1995 for $3.3 million, records show.

Sally Forster Jones of John Aaroe Group holds the listing.

Curtis, as publisher of CurtCo Media Group, acquired Robb Report in 2001 and previously held the titles of chairman and chief executive of Curtco Robb Media.

In 2014, Rockbridge Growth Equity, a Detroit-based private equity firm for which Dan Gilbert is the managing partner, paid $60 million to become the majority shareholder of the magazine and lifestyle brand, while Curtis retained a minority stake.

He transitioned into his role as vice chairman of the Board of Directors last year.
