Malibu showplace/film location listed at $8.95 million


If this dramatic showplace in Malibu just listed at $8.95 million looks familiar, it’s because it has appeared in more than 20 films, television shows and music videos.

Designed by architect Ed Niles, the rock-star worthy Contemporary features walls of curved glass and steel.

Inside are 22-foot-tall ceilings, fossilized limestone floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen opens to a patio with an outdoor kitchen. Some 7,000 square feet of living space includes a skylighted living and dining room, a bar, a den, an office, four bedrooms and five bathrooms.


There’s a detached guest house/studio and separate office/gym with a bathroom and sauna near the swimming pool.

The 16-acre promontory has 360-degree views that take in the mountains and ocean. Manicured lawns, mature sycamores, extensive patios and a helipad complete the museum-like grounds.

Some of Hollywood’s finest shoe leather has trod through the halls. Among the films shot at the property are “Face Off” with Nicolas Cage and John Travolta; “Fun With Dick and Jane” with Jim Carrey, Tea Leoni and Alec Baldwin; “Gone in 60 Seconds” with Angelina Jolie and Cage; “Knight of Cups” with Christian Bale and Natalie Portman; “Lost and Found” with Martin Sheen and David Spade; “Rocky 6” with Sylvester Stallone; “Benchwarmers” with David Spade, Adam Sandler, John Lovitz and Rob Schneider and “Starship Troopers” with Casper Van Dien and Denise Richards.

Television series “Beverly Hills 90210,” “Flash Forward,” “Ghost Whisperer,” “Justified,” “Sarah Conner Chronicles/Terminator” and “Shark” have also used the house.

Britney Spears, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Ludicrous, Paramore, Ray J, Snoop Dog and Will Smith have worked on music videos at the location.

Architect Niles also designed the glass-clad house that singer Justin Bieber is renting in Beverly Hills.


The property last sold in 2003 for $3.5 million.

Sandro Dazzan and Irene Dazzan-Palmer of Coldwell Banker are the listing agents.
