Leonardo DiCaprio, who finally put a five-time Oscar runner-up streak to bed this year with a Best Actor win for The Revenant, is looking to offload his contemporary three-bedroom on Malibu’s highly exclusive Carbon Beach. The actor is seeking $10.95 million for the oceanfront property, which he bought just after his turn in 1997’s Titanic for a mere $1.6 million.
Originally built in the 1950s, the 1,756-square-foot two-story has received a thorough update. It had been rumored to house DiCaprio’s mother Ermelin on and off since Leo first purchased it, but in recent years it’s come up for rent at a price of $50,000 a month during peak season.
Past the gated courtyard sits a one-car garage and a teak-screened porch that opens to reveal a blond wood deck. Blond, indeed, is the name of the hardwood game for the ultra-chic home, with decks, staircases and the open-plan living spaces all done up in light woods.
A stone-faced fireplace in the living room will help the new owner beat the beach chill after evening dips in the ocean, while wood-framed sliding doors throughout offer stunning sea views past the glass-encased patios.
The galley kitchen features a herringbone backsplash to go with its deep gray shaker cabinets, while the master suite shares patio access with another bedroom and includes white built-ins and a separate seating area.
The back deck includes plenty of seating areas in its own right, as well as a spa and staircase access to the beach below.
Dicaprio’s oeuvre includes parts in The Aviator, Blood Diamond and The Wolf of Wall Street. He also recently listed another home in Los Angeles for $2.4 million.
