Howie Mandel is ending 2013 on a happy note. He just sold his Malibu home that has been on the market since 2011 when it was priced at $7.25 million. He then raised the price early this year to $7.75 million. It just sold for $7 million, so there might be a few more presents under the tree this holiday season.
Howie tore down the original home on this property in 2008 after owning it for two years and rebuilt it more typical of the northeastern United States. The landscaping, shingles, window boxes and the roof line are more of a New England home style. If it weren’t for the craggy beachfront, it would be hard to tell the home is actually in California. Almost brand new, the home and grounds are open and sunny. Similar to many New England beach homes, the overall decor suggests that you are by the ocean without being in your face about it.
Located in the sought after Point Dume neighborhood of Malibu, enclave of the stars, and sitting on over an acre with panoramic Pacific views, the house contains everything for comfortable family living and entertaining. Consisting of 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, the house also has a theatre, gym and office and the great room has soaring ceilings with overviews from the floor above. Outside is a pool-guest house along with rolling lawns, attractive landscaping and more spectacular views. A very strong selling point is the proximity to the highly-respected Point Dume Marine Science Elementary School.
Sold for $7 million! On the market for over two years. “America’s Got Talent” and “Deal or No Deal” celebrity was asking $7.75 million.
