Baywatch alumnus Pamela Anderson has decided now’s the time to rent her beachfront home in Malibu. The former model and actress is looking for a tenant with $40K to burn to move into the house, which is a snappy contemporary in the Colony.
The home reconciles contemporary detachment and comfortably familiar quite well by injecting rustic, classic beachfront cottage design elements of raw wood, and finished wood cladding and accents used to define the exterior, which as a result suggests the coastal Pacific Northwest.
The second-floor master suite has now-classic SoCal style, with a fireplace, and an optional glass wall opening onto a private deck. The mirrored mosaic backsplash in the master bath echoes the figuring in the wood of the custom vanity, giving the room a sense of cohesion, but along the way it also delivers a slightly frantic overtone.
The house contains four bedrooms and three baths overall; the layout is unusually fine for a vacation rental by more than one couple or family, as the living spaces are split between the main house and the guest accommodations, with the pool situated between.
It isn’t uncommon for a guest house to err on the side of charming, and this one is no exception. From the upper level, a winding exterior staircase descends to a cozy little outdoor lounge anchored by a fire feature.
Anderson reprised her Baywatch role in last year’s silver-screen reprise of the television show, which fared well at the box office.
