Funnyman @MikeJudge sells secluded Malibu getaway at a loss

Mike Judge has sold his retreat in Malibu for $4.3 million -- roughly $600,000 less than he paid for it eight years ago.

Built in 1977, the Craftsman-esque house sits on more than an acre of park-like grounds with a swimming pool, a tennis court and a guest house. The 3,696 square feet of living space include living, dining and family rooms, a den, six bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Large windows frame views of the surrounding greenery, which includes palm trees and an expansive lawn.

Judge, 52, created and starred in the animated “King of the Hill” and, before that, the edgy “Beavis and Butt-head” series. His irreverent humor helped “King of the Hill” win an Emmy in 1999. He also co-created the current sitcom “Silicon Valley.”

The property previously changed hands in 2007 for $4.919 million.

Matt Rapf of Pritchett-Rapf & Associates was the listing agent. Alexander Purewal and Christopher Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker represented the buyer.
