Hollywood filmmaker Judd Apatow and his wife, actress-comedian Leslie Mann, have sold their home in Malibu for $11.5 million, and it was hardly a train wreck.
The walled-and-gated beach house in the famed Malibu Colony came to market in December for $12 million and closed sale in about two months, property records show. Apatow and Mann bought the house three years ago from the estate of “Pretty Woman” producer Laura Ziskin for the asking price of $10.95 million.
Dating to the 1930s, the 2,550-square-foot cottage has been updated in a more contemporary style and features a casual coastal vibe. White-washed common room have beamed ceilings, beadboard paneling and built-ins throughout. Brick fireplaces lend a cozy note to the living and dining areas.
Shades of gray lend a more modern note to the chef’s kitchen, which sports a vibrant tile backsplash and a butcher block-topped island. The master suite has a fireplace and a row of sliding doors that open to a terrace. There are three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in all.
Glass doors off the main level open to a step-up deck with stairs leading to shore. A courtyard sits off the entrance to the home.
Views extend as far as Catalina Island to Point Dume.
Alex Brunkhorst and Billy Rose of The Agency were the listing agents. Irene Dazzan-Palmer and Sandro Dazzan of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage repped the buyer.
Apatow, 48, has been involved in numerous sitcoms and films including the series “Freaks and Geeks” (1999-2000) and the movies “Knocked Up” (2007) and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” (2005). More recently, he directed and produced the comedy “Trainwreck” (2015).
Mann, 43, appeared in a number of her husband’s films, including “Funny People” (2009) and “This Is 40” (2012). “Big Daddy” (1999) and “The Other Woman” (2014) are among her other credits.
