David Hoberman Shells Out $7.5 Million for Malibu Mansion (EXCLUSIVE)

We first heard it from eagle-eyed real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak and property records do indeed confirm that veteran film and television producer David Hoberman shelled out $7.5 million for a not-yet-completed contemporary villa in Malibu’s The Who, a tiny and curiously named gated enclave perched on a low bluff above the Pacific Coast Highway with cinematic ocean and coastline views. Designed by savvy Malibu-based designer and architect Scott Gillen, the low-slung, single-level residence has four en suite bedrooms and a total of 5.5 bathrooms in just over 7,700-square-feet with soaring 13-foot exposed beam ceilings, wide plank white oak floorboards, and custom-crafted black walnut cabinetry. A courtyard entry lined with glass walls leads to a prodigiously proportioned, loft-like main living/dining/entertaining space where an open-concept kitchen will feature ultra-high-end cabinetry imported from Germany. A vast wall of floor-to-ceiling glass sliders will open on a 60-foot-long infinity-edged swimming pool and spa. A basement level will accommodate a media room and gym, and there’s also a three-car garage.

Hoberman, the creator of acclaimed TV series “Monk” — whose current slate includes a star-studded silver-screen musical adaptation of the classic fairytale “Beauty and the Beast” — previously owned a 1.8-acre estate in the Mandeville Canyon area of Los Angeles with a 9,200-square-foot mansion plus a substantial pool house with a professional-grade screening room. All of that was sold in the fall of 2014 for $17.85 million to film producer Teddy Schwarzman, the 30-something-year-old son of billionaire financier Steven Schwarzman, and the founder of Black Bear Pictures, whose previous projects include the 2014 Oscar-winning film “The Imitation Game.”
