A Malibu compound owned by the late actor Peter Falk and his second wife, actress Shera Danese, has sold for $3.18 million.
Built in 1992, the Mediterranean-style house sits on an acre of property with ocean views. The nearly 4,300 square feet of living space includes a dining room with a fireplace, an eat-in kitchen, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Sliding doors off the living room, which also has a fireplace, open to a terrace.
The courtyard features a waterfall and a barbecue. There’s a detached garage with a bonus room and a large motor court.
Peter Falk, who died in 2011 at 83, was known for his Emmy Award-winning role as a homicide detective in the series “Columbo.” The show aired on NBC from 1968-78 and was revived by ABC from 1989-2003. His scores of other acting credits include the films “Murder by Death” (1976), “The Princess Bride” (1987) and “Wings of Desire” (1987).
The couple bought the property through a trust in 2000 for $1.587 million. They met on the set of the film “Mikey and Nicky” and she appeared in six “Columbo” episodes.
