Former Disney and CEO is selling his sprawling cliff-top Malibu, California compound, and it can be yours for $225 million.
According to the Wall Street Journal, if and his wife Jane are indeed able to close a deal for their asking price (or above), the compound will represent the most expensive home ever sold in the state of California. It will also be one of the priciest homes ever sold on earth.
The estate, which was designed by architect Robert A. M. Stern, features nine separate structures on approximately five acres. Each structure is connected by courtyards. The property sits on a bluff above a small beach known as Watkins Cove in Malibu, California, and even has a cabana that sits right on the beach. The cabana is accessible by a cliff-side elevator.
The estate, which features Mediterranean-style accents, spans almost 25,000 square feet. The structures in the estate feature antique stonework and roofs of terra cotta. According to the listing agent, the estate is reminiscent of those along Cote d’Azur in France.
The estate includes a gym, several guest houses, an office, and a pool that overlooks the deep blue Pacific Ocean. There are 16 bedrooms, 28 bathrooms across the main house and the guest houses, and a two-bedroom caretaker’s house is also on the grounds.
