Walter Hill’s Broad Beach Micro-Compound for Sale

Location:
Malibu, Calif.
Price:
$8.995 million
Size:
3,050 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms

Hollywood polymath Walter Hill has hung a price tag of close to $9 million on a loft-inspired, oceanfront residence along Malibu’s prestigious, fearsomely expensive — and unfortunately shrinking and, hence, ironically named — Broad Beach. Tax records show the prolific, two-time Emmy-winning film and television writer, director and producer and his talent agent wife, Hildy Gottlieb, purchased the property almost 15 years ago for $7 million.

Comprised of two striking, contemporary pavilions separated by a desert-landscaped courtyard, there are five bedrooms and five bathrooms between the slightly more than 3,000-square-foot, two-story main residence and a spacious, en suite guesthouse atop a detached two-car garage. With a high, beamed ceiling and practical, concrete-colored floor tiles, the living and dining rooms are divided by a two-way fireplace set into a chunky concrete column. Full-height windows slip into the walls to unite the comfortably sophisticated spaces with an oceanside dining and lounging deck with built-in grill and above-ground spa. Conveniently located behind the dining room, the crisply contemporary kitchen has high-grade fittings and finishes.

Two en suite guest bedrooms are situated on the main floor. A third with private bathroom is joined on the upper floor by a spacious and airy, ocean-facing master retreat that encompasses a private lounge with bespoke built-ins, and a study/office that opens to an oceanfront balcony with sweeping ocean, sunset and coastline views. A sandy path leads over a planted dune to a massive, mile-long rock revetment installed roughly eight years ago by the more than 120 Broad Beach homeowners to keep the Pacific Ocean from further encroaching on their property.
