Bruce Gowers, who won an Emmy for his directing of the television singing competition series “American Idol,” is still on the hunt for a buyer in Malibu. He’s put his equestrian estate in the area back up for sale at $12.5 million, records show.
The new price is around $2.5 million less than when the property first came up for sale in 2016.
Dubbed Silver Raven Farms, the gated property sits roughly half a mile from the ocean. Set across four acres of grounds, the estate includes a 5,788-square-foot main home, three guesthouses, a pool, a tennis court, a riding arena and a horse barn. Rolling lawns are dotted with fruit trees and vegetable gardens.
Custom stone work and wide-plank walnut floors fill the two-story main house, which was built in 2009. Highlights of the home include an indoor-outdoor living room under high vaulted ceilings and skylights, a rotunda kitchen with a hexagonal island and a formal dining room. A wood-paneled billiards room features a wet bar.
Beamed ceilings top the master suite, one of four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Also part of the master bedroom is a fireplace, a lounge and a balcony surveying a palm-topped, brick-lined patio out back.
Ellen Francisco and Marcus Beck of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage hold the listing.
