Rent Cheryl Hines and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Malibu Compound

OWNERS: Cheryl Hines and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
LOCATION: Malibu, Calif.
PRICE: $50,000/month
SIZE: 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Just six months after they shelled out $4,995,000 for seven-time Emmy-winning composer David Kurtz’s multi-structure compound on Malibu’s celeb-saturated Point Dume, newlyweds Cheryl Hines and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have made the property available, we first heard from Trulia’s, P.R. Princess, as a summer rental (June, July and August) at $50,000 per month.

Current listing details show the gated and secured, 0.86-acre spread includes a board and batten-sided farmhouse-style main residence of not quite 3,000 square feet with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. At the heart of the main house there’s a voluminous, book-filled living room with used brick fireplace and vaulted and sky-lit ceiling. Other rooms include a sunny sunroom, a library/media lounge and a center-island, eat-in kitchen fitted with perfectly pedestrian white ceramic tile countertops and a full suite of high-grade commercial-style appliances.

A separate, two-story guesthouse provides two more bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor and a roomy second floor office with skylights and fireplace while a second, studio-style guest cottage has a fireplace and private bathroom. A poolside cabana includes a small but fully equipped kitchen, wood-paneled lounge area and loft space, and the property also includes, per current and previous digital listings, a billiard room with raised ceiling and a temperature-controlled wine storage shed.

In addition to swimming pool and spa, the tree-ringed and pretty much pancake flat grounds include a built-in barbecue and a built-in fire pit, expansive lawns, volleyball net and a two-level tree house. Listing details note the pricey rental includes usage of a golf cart, surfboards, the key that provides access to coveted Little Dume beach and a full-time maid/property manager.

Last year the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Suburgatory” actress sold her 3,309-square-foot Bel Air bachelorette pad for $3,105,000 and, as far as this property gossip can tell, in December 2012 the activist-environmentalist attorney sold a 10-plus acre Mount Kisco, N.Y., estate — where his second and then estranged wife, Mary, hanged herself in a barn on the property in May 2012 — with an eco-conscious 10,000-square-foot mansion for $3.95 million.
