Matt Bellamy of the alt-rock group Muse fame has doubled down in Malibu’s Point Dume, buying a second home in the area for $2.6 million.
The purchase comes about a year and a half after the English musician bought a nearby home from comic and radio personality Adam Carolla for $3.6 million.
Set behind gates and privacy hedges, the three-story contemporary was remodeled three years ago and features vaulted and beamed ceilings, rich hardwood floors and updated bathrooms. Glass sliding doors open to the grounds for indoor-outdoor living.
A media/living room, a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen, six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms lie within approximately 3,700 square feet of interiors. The third-story master suite, with a wood-burning fireplace and his-and-hers closets, takes in ocean views.
Outdoors, there’s a large lawn, a patio and an outdoor shower. A one-bedroom guesthouse with a private yard and separate entry sits across the approximately half-acre grounds. A pair of attached garages sit off the entrance of the home.
The house came to market in May for $2.999 million and was more recently listed at $2.6 million, records show. It previously changed hands five years ago for $1.65 million.
Christopher Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and Wendy Polo of Sotheby’s International Realty were the listing agents, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Kathryn Bentzen of Partners Trust Malibu represented the buyer.
Bellamy, 37, is the lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for the band he, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme formed in the 1990s. The group has won two Grammys for best rock album, for “The Resistance” (2011) and “Drones” (2016).
