Two months ago, Joel Silver had engaged the services of at least one prominent real estate agent to shop his Malibu beach house on the down low with an asking price somewhere in the neighborhood of $60 million. But, the property failed to secure an off-market buyer and, has now come available on the open market with an official asking price of $57,5 million. Mister Silver, who brought to the silver screen a slew of blockbusters including the “Lethal Weapon” and “Matrix” series, purchased the property from late “Rocky” franchise producer Robert Chartoff in September 2003 for $14.4 million.
Situated on nearly three-quarters of an acre with 137-feet of bulk-headed frontage along Carbon Beach, the property has, according to online marketing materials, a total of seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms in the 5,859-square-foot main house plus another two bedrooms and two bathrooms in a detached guesthouse. Other features noted include a walled entrance courtyard, open living spaces, a “chef’s kitchen,” and a fitness room. Dark-tinted glass doors open the two-story house to a massive brick terrace, swimming pool, and tennis court. Online marketing materials describe Mister Silver’s place as the “only tennis court property on the beachfront”.
