Retired Olympic runner Michael Johnson has sprinted past the finish line with the purchase of a Malibu home for $5.825 million.
The Los Angeles-area home is located in a prime, waterfront location, and features spectacular views of the Pacific. The contemporary-style stretches to 4,500 square feet, and features an open-concept living space punctuated by a centerpiece staircase that makes a very strong statement.
The home’s ultra-modern aesthetic incorporates a wooden accent wall with a mounted fireplace, sleek tile floors, and walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen is very contemporary, and features custom cabinetry, a large center island, and glass sliders opening onto the patio. In addition to four bedrooms and 5.25 bathrooms, there is also a family room and a billiards room with a wet bar.
The home’s exterior features a pergola-covered terrace set above an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa, a fire feature, and desert-style landscaping.
The four-time Olympic gold medalist competed in the summer games in 1996 and 2000.
