A-list director Judd Apatow, famous for movies like "The 40-Year-Old Virgin
" and "Knocked Up
," and his actress wife, Leslie Mann, have just purchased a Malibu
home for $10.825 million from the estate of late "Pretty Woman
" producer Laura Ziskin. Property records show that the deal closed on March 19. The Apatow/Mann family's new oceanfront contemporary cottage
is theirs just in time for summer!
The home is situated in the exclusive, guarded and gated celebrity-laden community of Malibu Colony. A romantic 1930′s bungalow, the home is tranquil yet chic and comfortable, and it sits directly on the beach. A gourmet kitchen and cozy family room open to a private, lush courtyard entry. The living room, dining room and cozy sunroom all feature expansive ocean views and lead to patios and the private Colony Beach. The second floor features three bedroom suites. The large master bedroom overlooks the Pacific Ocean through a wall of glass. The master also includes a wood-burning fireplace and a spacious patio leading to the sand. The property also features a two-car garage and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse.
According to other plugged-in real estate sources
, the Apatow/Mann family are looking building a massive custom home on a lot they purchased in Santa Monica, Calif.
, last year for $8.6 million. Their forthcoming custom digs must be something amazing, because they'd be decamping from a home in Brentwood
that they paid $18.25 million for in 2009. Apatow also still owns a 4,356-square-foot Beverly Hills
home that he purchased in 2005 for $1.656 million.
