Barry Manilow’s Malibu Beach House
Barry Manilow’s former Malibu beach house recently hit the celebrity real estate market with an asking price of $10.375 million. Located next to the famous Malibu Colony, Manilow purchased it at the end of the 1990’s. The multi-talented performer enjoyed the luxury home until he sold it in 2006. Though still known by local residents as ‘Barry’s House,’ the new owners completed a major renovation in 2017 that added upscale, modern upgrades. (Image credit: The Agency)
The Quintessential Beach House
Built in 1976, the 4,320 square foot dream home has one of Malibu’s best Pacific views. In addition to its five bedrooms and five baths, it has a wealth of luxury amenities. Most impressive are the floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that open to the sound of crashing waves and ocean breezes. Even the gourmet kitchen offers a stunning ocean view!
Across a walled entry garden, find the detached fully-equipped guest house complete with a kitchen. And the garden itself has an outdoor kitchen with dining and living area spacious enough for large-scale entertaining. The space also boasts a Jacuzzi hot tub and hot outdoor shower.
Exceptional Malibu Views
Where most Malibu beach houses have only one view straight to the ocean, ‘Barry’s House’ juts out on a point away from its neighbors. As such, the beach house has 180-degree views up and down both sides of the beach from Point Dume to Palos Verdes. Conveniently located, it has easy access to the Malibu Country Mart. It’s also just a short bicycle ride to Soho Beach Club and Nobu.
Popular with surfers, tourists and celebrities, Malibu was hard to get to until the Pacific Coast Highway came through in the 1930’s. Today, only 30 minutes from Los Angeles, it is one of California’s favorite beach towns. In fact, current celebrity residents include Cindy Crawford, Robert Downey, Jr. and Lady Gaga. Now, the home is listed with Sandro Dazzan, David Solomon and Anna Solomon of The Agency, Beverly Hills for $10.375 million.
