It took almost two years to happen, but Jeremy Piven finally sold his Malibu beach house. The original ask was set at $10.5 million; Piven accepted an offer of $6.6 million for the heavily updated 1949-built property. He picked it up in 2004 for $3.5 million.
The home rambles wonderfully with the square footage it has, and its open concept shared living spaces gives them a spacious feel that belies the home’s size. It’s been heavily modified, of course, but there’s a bit of history evident here and there; the streetside impression is comfortably easygoing, with abundant flowering vines, a gated entry, and a weathered pergola, and interior details include original terra-cotta tile flooring.
Highlights among the interior spaces include the lower level family/entertainment room, which is given some definition by sculped ceiling lines and support columns, and a relaxed vibe by virtue of a wet bar. Upstairs, plank oak adds warmth and texture to the ethereal white treatment. Flow is excellent, and enhances the water views available from nearly all rooms.
The home’s 4 bedrooms and 5 baths culminate in a full floor master with a private balcony deck and a large walk-in closet. The master bath gets a river-stone accent treatment, a bit of character that does it proud.
Jeremy Piven stars in the upcoming film “All-Star Weekend” alongside an all-star cast: Jamie Foxx, Robert Downey Jr., Ken Jeong, Gerard Butler, Benicio del Toro, Jessica Szohr, and Eva Longoria.
