BUYER: Bruce Jenner
LOCATION: Malibu, Calif.
SIZE: (approx.) 3,500 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: More than a week ago, the folks at X17 let the real estate cat out of the proverbial bag about how recently divorced reality television denizen and tabloid magnet Bruce Jenner, who may or may not be in the process of switching genders, moved to a secluded mountaintop retreat in Malibu. Several thoughtful informants have since snitched to Your Mama — and property records certainly suggest — that the gold medal Olympian didn’t just move into the contemporary residence in question, he bought it for $3.575 million.
Our research shows the 11-acre-plus spread high above El Pescador State Beach was last listed for just under $3.9 million and includes an approximately 3,500-square-foot concrete and glass residence built in 2010 and recently refreshed by South Pasadena-based interior designer James Hernandez. There are four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 360-degree mountain, canyon and ocean views. Open-plan living spaces include a step-down living room with fireplace, a dining room with a full wall of frameless glass and spacious center-island kitchen fitted and kitted with white countertops on white cabinetry and a full suite of top-grade stainless steel appliances. Listing details we managed to pinch out of the interweb show the property also features garage parking for three cars, multizone radiant heated floors, both indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a built-in grilling station on a large loggia, and a swimming pool and spa with unobstructed ocean vistas.
Mister Jenner previously lived with his now ex-wife, reality television queen bee Kris Jenner, in a large mansion in the guard-gated Hidden Hills community before he moved, sometime in the early summer of 2013, to a $14,500 per month rental perched on a steep bluff above Malibu’s Broad Beach.
