"Dancing With the Stars" co-host Brooke Burke and actor David Charvet have listed their Malibu house for $12.5 million.
Designed to evoke the south of France, where Charvet was born, the chateau-style home is in the Serra Retreat neighborhood. An 18th century fountain and sculpture courtyard sit outside the 6,769-square-foot house, which is reached from a gated stone driveway. More than three-quarters of an acre includes extensive lawns, a 200-bush rose garden, an orchard, a pool and a cabana.
Hand-plastered walls, hand-carved limestone and walnut flooring, imported French fireplaces and sculpted doors are among the details in the five-bedroom, 41/2-bathrooms house. A hidden screening room, a 4,000-bottle wine cellar, a wood-paneled office and lower-level bonus room complete the residence.
Burke, 39, was the dance show's Season 7 champion and started hosting the competition in 2010. Charvet, 39, played Matt Brody on "Baywatch" from 1992 to '95 and starred last year in the TV movie "The Perfect Teacher."
He bought the property in 1998 for $1,275,000 and torn down the original house to build this one.
Susan Monus of Coldwell Banker, Malibu West, is the listing agent.
