Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has sold a bluff-top contemporary in Malibu that had been listed at $7,999,000.
The main house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,374 square feet. Walls of glass frame ocean views in the living room, which has a fireplace and skylights. A guesthouse has two one-bedroom suites, and a stairway leads to the beach.
DiCaprio, 34, put the property on the market in mid-November. He purchased it for $6.35 million in 2007, according to public records.
The three-time Oscar nominee has the lead in the upcoming thriller "Shutter Island," scheduled for October release. Last year, he starred in "Body of Lies" and "Revolutionary Road" and was ranked as the fifth-highest-paid actor in Hollywood by Forbes magazine. Among his acting credits are "Blood Diamond" (2006), "Catch Me if You Can" (2002) and "Titanic" (1997).
He is a producer of "Greensburg," a series in its second season on Planet Green about a community in the Midwest rebuilding after a 2007 tornado. The actor-environmentalist-producer-writer-Lakers fan wears many hats -- literally. After studying photos of DiCaprio courtside at Staples Center since 2004, Canada's National Post observed last month that it looks like he never wears the same baseball cap twice.
The listing agents were Katie Bentzen and Sarah Kosasky of Bentzen Levin Real Estate, Malibu.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
