The perpetually touring genre-bending performer Beckhas lowered the price on his Malibu beach home a smidgen to pique interest. Old price: $2,399,000. New price: $2,345,000. It's his second home, and his schedule hasn't allowed much use of it.
The Malibu home, described in the Multiple Listing Service as "a very hip mid-century ranch," has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are pitched ceilings, hardwood floors and a great room overlooking private gardens and a lawn. No ocean views, but they aren't far away. There is a separate two-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse with a fireplace. Public records put the square footage at about 1,600; the home was built in 1961.
Fans of Beck, 38, consider him to be among the most creative and idiosyncratic musicians of the last 20 years. He first earned mainstream recognition with his breakthrough single "Loser" in 1994. Beck is on a world tour promoting his latest album, "Modern Guilt." He is married to actress Marissa Ribisi.
Richard Klug of Sotheby's International Realty, Beverly Hills, is the listing agent.
