This ocean-view home in Malibu has a new look and a new owner: Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann.
He bought the turnkey retreat, which sits on Point Dume, through a Hawaiian entity for $4.9 million, records show. That’s a nearly $2-million jump from when it last traded hands four years ago.
Back then, the single-story house featured a Spanish design both inside and out. The exterior still sports white stucco and clay tile, but the living spaces have been swapped for a more modern feel.
Through a double-door entry wrapped in wrought iron, the home opens to a post-and-beam interior with herringbone wood floors. Within 3,241 square feet of living space are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a dining area and an indoor-outdoor living room with a custom fireplace.
The center-island kitchen offers tile backsplashes and a farmhouse sink. Pocketing doors expand the living space outside, where patios descend to a swimming pool, a spa and a fire pit.
In the master suite bathroom, a freestanding tub takes in the yard through an oversized window. The bedroom, set under vaulted ceilings, includes a fireplace and sliding glass doors.
Mark S. Gruskin and Ignacio Rodriguez Diaz of Westside Estate Agency held the listing. Lily Harfouche of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.
