Yet another stunning celebrity beach house in Los Angeles is on the market, and this time the celeb behind it is Stephen Dorff. The “Blade” actor just put it up on the market for $8.45 million, and with all the amazing features and views that this house has, it’s sure to fetch pretty close to the asking price. That should earn him a decent profit after having bought the place for $2.546 million back in 2001.
Located on La Costa Beach, the 1968-built 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is known as “The Brown House” and was designed by famed celebrity architects Buff & Hensman.
The home boasts 40 feet of highly coveted Malibu sand. While it’s been updated over the years, the 2,298-square-foot home still retains a great deal of its original charm and design, including the dark wood, cedar shingles, and corkscrew staircase which keep the home tied closely with nature.
The home is tucked behind a fenced-in courtyard with mature trees. Upon entrance through the impressive, two-story wall of glass is a soaring double-height foyer with dark flooring that flows into the living areas of the home.
The high ceilings continue on into the dining room, while up above is the loft area that overlooks both the dining room and foyer.
The step-down living room offers an eclectic blend of natural materials with more modern features, including custom wood cabinets and a fireplace surrounded with stainless steel. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors lead out the beachside porch.
The master bedroom leads out to a balcony via glass sliding doors that offers stunning, unobstructed views of the coast.
Other notable features of the home include a den, galley kitchen, living room with a fireplace, and two-car garage.
Both levels of the home are equipped with sizable decks that overlook the ocean and are positioned to offer incredible sunset views.
The ’90s heartthrob never actually lived in the home full-time. Back in 2010, the “Somewhere” actor started leasing out the home at a whopping $50,000 per month. At the same time, Dorff also re-listed his lavish penthouse in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City with a price tag of $2.399 million. He bought the 1,200-square-foot unit back in 2006 for $1.65 million, and initially listed it in 2008 for $3 million.
