Anthony Hopkins Profits by Nearly $6.7 Million on Malibu Beach House Sale
You know what they say about Los Angeles- it’s the City of Dreams! And it seems like Sir Anthony Hopkins is a bit too fond of dreaming, as he just sold his Malibu beach house for $10.5 million. The actor has reportedly attributed this sale to his love for Los Angeles, as he wishes to live closer to the magical city.
The ‘Silence of the Lambs’ actor had his property up for sale for the past six months, according to Realtor.com, and has only recently managed to find a buyer for the charming Cape Cod residence.
The beach house was originally listed for $11.5 million, meaning that the acclaimed actor got a million under his asking price but, considering the fact that he bought it for under $3.8 million back in 2001, the $6+ million benefit is more than one can ask for in terms of profit.
Either way, it seems like the buyer has gotten a pretty great deal out of the purchase because, believe it or not, Hopkins’ place is completely fire-resistant! In fact, the 2018 Woolsey Fire which destroyed almost all the surrounding areas of the mansion, even the house right next door, did little to no damage to the amazing property.
The acre-wide estate sits on a cliff overlooking Zuma Beach and further out into the Pacific Ocean, blessing its owner with unbelievably breathtaking views.
Built in the style of an English manor, the house dates back to the 1950s, with signature dormer windows protruding from the classic red-bricked roof. The 4,000 square foot mansion holds within it five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a large living room, and two fireplaces.
The master suite is, undeniably, one of the finest offerings of the entire mansion, giving the property good value for the price tag on it.
A sauna awaits the owner inside, providing the perfect spot to lay back and relax after long days of work. Best of all, it comes with a glass of wall which allows a picture-perfect view of the beach outside, adding significantly to the experience of living on the magnificent property.
Besides the fantastic master suite, the estate has a few other impressive amenities, including a grand pool and a pool-side cabana. Hopkins used the cabana as his private art-room, which further adds to its uniqueness and beauty.
Interestingly, it is also perhaps one of the most used parts of the property as Hopkins is known to have spent many hours of his day there creating his precious works of art, which he would later gift to his friends.
