Pam, Leo, Pierce: A Summer of Celebrity Rentals

Tis the season, it seems, for high-end celebrity rentals! Not that we're complaining. It's just that the level of (largely unattainable) eye candy being thrust on the market is getting slightly out of hand. First, there was Pamela Anderson's $50,000-a-month rental in Malibu (down $25,000 from last year). Then there was... Continue Reading »

House of the Day: Living in 'Malibu Style'

I'd like to propose that there be an architectural style called "Malibu" and we use this 10,000-square-foot oceanfront home listed at $27 million as the textbook example.

House of the Day: The Skinny on Malibu's Broad Beach

You've heard the expression that there's no such thing as bad pizza, right? That's kind of how it is with houses in Malibu, Calif.

Jack Nicholson's Malibu Beach House Takes a Dive in Sale

Actor Jack Nicholson finally can put a "sold" sign outside his Malibu beach ranch, although he's certainly going to be depositing a whole lot less cash than he was hoping for. He's had it listed at $4.250 million and it sold for just $3.5 million according to the MLS. Continue Reading »

House of the Day: Breezy and Breathtaking in Malibu

Not every house in Malibu is beachfront; in fact, some of the nicer ones are off the sand and in the land-side hills overlooking the Pacific. They still get the sea breezes and the vistas are breathtaking -- and the prices tend to reflect their lack of oceanfront status. With that in mind, we especially like this... Continue Reading »

Jeremy Piven Buys Mike Piazza's Tribeca Home

Sometimes it feels like celebrities trade homes like baseball cards, which is an appropriate analogy in this case since one of the principals is former Mets slugger Mike Piazza.

Brad Pitt Lists Malibu Beachfront Home

Superstar Brad Pitt has put his Malibu oceanfront home into the MLS at $13.375 million -- a far cry from the pocket listing price of $18 million that's been bandied about for the past two years.
