Home of the Week: Kid Rock’s Malibu Oasis

In our newest ‘Home of the Week‘ we move from a chic penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Chicago to platinum recording star Kid Rock’s tranquil oasis in Malibu.

You might expect Kid Rock’s home to look more “like a cowboys” but his $13,450,000 home is a tropical sanctuary located on idyllic Point Dume in Malibu. The ultra private estate features 5 bedrooms and 5 full baths spread out over 8,300 square feet of airy interior living space.

Upon entering this Balinese oasis, you are instantly struck by the beautiful attention to detail throughout. A truly zen-like feel is imparted to you upon entering this gorgeous home that features abundant light and an open floor plan perfect for entertaining. As one would expect, the interior is a testament to fine craftsmanship, top of the line appliances and a chefs kitchen fit for the Food Network.

Not to be outdone, the grounds of Kid Rock’s estate are exquisitely apportioned and offer up the best in Southern California living. Being a native to Detroit’s frigid winters, we’re sure Kid Rock enjoyed this estate’s outdoor patio, lanai area, sprawling enclosed gardens and inviting pool “all summer long“…or all year long for that matter.

A Home That Defines California Dreaming

$27 million oceanfront home in Malibu, CA listed by Chris Cortazzo

At Coldwell Banker Real Estate, we come across some incredible homes from across the globe, but this Malibu home listed by Coldwell Banker mega-agent, Chris Cortazzo, grabbed my attention from the first photo.

When you dream of heading to Southern California and living that Pacific Coast lifestyle, this is the exact home I envision myself in. Sure it’s probably not realistic for me, but hey it’s my dream. Perfectly located on the bluffs in Malibu and overlooking some of the most premium beachfront you can find is this California castle. Listed for $27 million it boasts 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a 50 ft pool in the back and the interior design was done by Tim Clarke.

I love how Chris Cortazzo describes the interior in his property details on coldwellbanker.com, he says “Interior designer Tim Clarke’s coastal modern aesthetic imbues the home with warmth and livability.” I like warmth and I love livability.

Magnificent doesn’t do this place justice. I think it needs it’s own Spotify playlist to listen to while viewing the property details.

Check out all the pics and the full details on this 10,000 sq. ft. home on coldwellbanker.com.

Tour Through the True Blood Mansion

It’s the season for creatures of a scary nature and what better time to have a house on the market that is known for vampires. Fans of HBO’s True Blood may recognize this palatial estate as being home to the blood-sucking Queen Sophie Anne, but it’s actually a home set on the bluffs of Malibu. The mansion is currently listed by the #1 agent in all of Coldwell Banker Real Estate, Chris Cortazzo, for $75 million.

Michael Corbett of Extra TV featured the property the other night which you can over at ExtraTV.com. What you’ll notice is that the indoor pool that has been seen on a number of episodes of True Blood is actually contained in a totally separate mansion from the main house! Chris Cortazzo describes the home as being influenced by Italian design and architecture, and the home has some of the most beautiful views in Malibu.

According to the property description, the home is actually named La Villa Contenta and is one of the world’s premier properties that has never before listed for sale. This ultimate compound is located on approx 8 acres of the most prime bluff top that Malibu has to offer. No vampires included.
