A beach house owned by the late entertainment lawyer Harold Berkowitz is on the market in Malibu at $13.9 million.


The Mediterranean house has 40 feet of beachfront and a raised deck for taking in the ocean views. The master bedroom suite includes a sitting area, a fireplace and dual bathrooms. Two detached guesthouses have kitchenettes and boost the listing to a total of five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms.

Berkowitz, who died in last year at 92, was known for his negotiation skills. Among his clients were director Blake Edwards and actors Jack Lemmon and Robert Mitchum.

Jack Pritchett of Pritchett-Rapf & Associates and Christopher Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker, Malibu West, are the listing agents.
