Crooner Barry Manilow once made his home on Old Malibu Road in an oceanfront compound now up for sale.

The contemporary-style home was purchased by the singer-songwriter in 2002 for about $3.55 million and sold a decade later for $5.45 million. Now, following a top-down remodel by Darren Domingue of Domicile Design, it's on the market again at $16.75 million — nearly three times the previous sale price.

Entered through a walled and gated courtyard, the house opens to a foyer with a salt-water aquarium. A long hallway leads to a step-down living room with a fireplace and walls of glass that center on unobstructed views of the Pacific.

Other common areas include an office/den, a family room and a powder room. The chef's kitchen — with modern fixtures, two small islands and an ornate tiled backsplash — flows into an ocean-view dining area.

Upstairs, sliding walls of glass in the master suite open to a private balcony. Including a detached guesthouse above the garage, there are five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in more than 4,200 square feet of space.

A lounge with a fire feature, an above-ground spa and an outdoor dining area sit between the main and guest houses. At the rear of the home, a wide terrace sits above the sand, while a private staircase leads down to the beach below.

Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Previews International holds the listing.

Manilow, 73, has hits that include "Mandy," "Could It Be Magic" and "I Write the Songs." He won a pop vocal Grammy in 1978 for "Copacobana (at the Copa)."
