Jean-Claude Van Damme gets $7.25 million for his trophy home in Marina del Rey


Actor and martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme has made a clean split from his home in Marina Del Rey, selling the canal-front property for $7.25 million.

The custom three-story with cityscape and ocean views came up for sale a year ago for about $10 million and was more recently priced at $7.949 million, records show. “The Muscles from Brussels,” as he is nicknamed, bought the house four years ago for $6 million.

Built in 2011, the 7,574-square-foot home contains a world of knockout features: a home theater, a gym and a poured concrete-and-glass wine cellar. A glass-enclosed staircase and an elevator connect the levels.


Among common areas is a modern kitchen with a breakfast bar, a formal dining room and a living room with a wet bar. The master suite has a fireplace and his and hers bathrooms for a total of six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and six fireplaces.

Pocket doors off each level open to terrace patios overlooking the canal. The rooftop deck with a swimming pool takes in 360-degree views.

The 55-year-old Van Damme is known for his roles in “Until Death” (2007), “Double Impact” (1991) and “Bloodsport” (1988). More recently, he lent his voice to the animated film “Kung Fu Panda 3” (2016).

Shaun Hurley of First Team Real Estate was the listing agent. Erin Alls of Maison International represented the buyer.

The sale was among the priciest deals historically for a single-family home in the Westside community. In March, the median price for single family homes in Marina Del Rey was $1.808 million, based on three sales, according to CoreLogic.
