Talk about big exits. Patrick Dempsey, whose “Grey’s Anatomy” character was killed off last week, is ready to part with the ocean view from his estate in Malibu for $14.5 million.

The Frank Gehry-designed Tin House sits behind wooden gates on 3.2 mountainside acres with such amenities as a rock-climbing wall, a lawn suitable for soccer practice, animal coops and hutches and a four-stall barn.

The two-story Modern-style residence, created for renowned abstract painter Ron Davis and built in 1972, is constructed of corrugated metal.


Inside, high ceilings, skylights and expanses of angular walls of windows bring light into the great room. Wood floors and massive exposed wood beams bring a warm ambience to the interiors.

A second-story family room, an office, three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms are within the 5,547 square feet of living space.

Wood decking surrounds the swimming pool with detached spa. There are multiple outdoor seating areas, patios and a brick-floored open-air kitchen. A vintage Airstream on the site has been used as a guesthouse.

Olive and fruit trees, pastureland, vegetable gardens, flower beds complete the grounds.

Dempsey, 49, has spent the last decade on “Grey’s Anatomy” playing brain surgeon Derek Shepherd.

He and his wife, Jillian, who filed for divorce in January, paid $7 million of the property in 2009, public records show.

Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, and Christopher Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker are the listing agents.
