Gary Gilbert, who crossed over from Quicken Loans co-founder to film production — and has worked on such films as 2016’s La La Land and 2004’s Garden State — is the new owner of a strictly modern beach house in Malibu, according to Dirt. The purchase sapped $17.45 million from Gilbert’s wallet, but gave him the benefit of four bedrooms on the sand at a pleasingly distant remove from the PCH.
The home’s mixture of the refined and rustic includes details like hand-scraped plank oak floors, an unfinished ceiling, pivoting doors, custom cabinetry, and a design sensibility that borrows heavily from Eastern and industrial styles. Fleetwood doors open the home’s shared space and master bedroom onto balconies overlooking the ocean. The house’s most unique statements are transitory: a rail ladder that accesses long, floating shelves in the living room, and the stainless steel staircase.
The 4,699 sq. ft. of interior living space includes a set of amenities that includes a kitchen with an island finished with a breakfast bar, an upstairs sitting room, and a little interior courtyard.
Gilbert is a co-owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
