If you’re on the hunt for the ultimate bachelor pad, look no further than British action star Jason Statham’s Malibu beach pad.
The star of The Transporter series is looking to fetch around AU$29.1 million for the oceanfront property. That’s almost double what he paid for it when he first moved in a decade ago.
Known as “The Black House” – due to the unique black cedar shingle facade people see when approaching the home – the sprawling abode is part of Malibu’s Colony gated community, home to all your usual celebrity suspects. This has included the likes of Tom Hanks, Edward Norton, and Sting.
The home is surprisingly minimal in design and certainly not the type of home you might assume someone like Statham would own.
The recently renovated digs cover a massive 3,900-square-feet and include three bedrooms, three bathrooms, as well as a large dining room with a brick fireplace. The kitchen features stunning grey oak cabinetry, stainless-steel countertops, and high-end Gaggenau appliances.
Over in the main living room, you’ll find floor-to-ceiling windows with access to an outside entertaining area overlooking the ocean. As for the TV room, the monochrome theme continues with modern furnishings and state-of-the-art entertainment facilities.
The upstairs level plays home to the master bedroom and is a spacious area with four wooden framed doors that opens onto a private patio allowing for a pleasant ocean breeze to drift throughout the room.
Outside, you’ll find a jacuzzi, small entertaining area and direct access to the beach, along with a one-bedroom guest house for when your parents come to stay.
Statham isn’t the only celebrity trying to sell at the moment, with Michael Jordan putting his Utah mansion on the market for $11 million for anyone who’d rather the mountain life over the beach.
$30 million seems like a reasonable split with the boys, no?
