Actor and activist Sean Penn has listed his home in Malibu for $6.55 million. He purchased the 1.42-acre gated estate in 2009 for $3.8 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. So what emotions does the house of the two-time Oscar winner evoke?
We’re going for “beach shack chic.” The one-story retreat includes a light-filled formal entry, dining room, and an open kitchen with an exposed-beam ceiling. The master bedroom, family room, and living room “all look out and open to the pool and grass yard.” Still, Curbed L.A. wasn’t impressed with the home and said it has a “strong tract house vibe.”
We definitely did a double take of the twice-divorced actor’s taste in home decor, including the adult-theme artwork. There’s also what Variety described as “shockingly uninspired and mildly depressing middle-aged bachelor furnishings,” along with a print of the revolutionary Che Guevara that wouldn’t be out of place in a dorm room. We’re guessing the art work is not included in the sale price.
Access to the beach, however, is included. Not surprisingly, the man who prefers privacy and detests the paparazzi has a home that is located on the “much-coveted” and “all but entirely private Riviera III beach,” according to Variety. Penn, who rose to fame playing the surfer Jeff Spicoli, has certainly come a long way, dude.
In fact, the U-shaped house, built in 1960, is just a short walk to the famed Point Dume bluff. The spit of sand and dramatic cliffs have starred in Hollywood productions from the “Planet of the Apes” TV series of the 1970s to the more recent “Iron Man” movie. The home being for sale has some buzzing about Penn’s real-life drama. The star split from his wife, “House of Cards” actress Robin Wright, in 2010. The 54-year-old actor has since moved on from that relationship—and now also from his house.
Since 2014, he has been linked to actress Charlize Theron, who recently described him as “the love of my life.” Perhaps the lovebirds are looking for a new nest together.
