Peri Gilpin, best known thus far for her roles as Roz Doyle on Frasier and Kim Keeler on Make It or Break It, and her highly regarded artist husband, Christian Vincent, listed their home in Malibu just above its famous Broad Beach. Congratulations to Ben Salem of Rodeo Realty, a Harris coaching client, for landing this $3,899,999 listing.
Gilpin and Vincent have enjoyed this wonderfully comfortable home together since 2013. The 1.2-acre property, then priced at $2,540,000., is gated as well as completely surrounded by 50 olive trees. Its ambience has only to do with vine-covered pergolas, vegetable gardens, porches and homegrown fresh flowers, not celebrity glitz.
Built in the late 1940’s, the main house has 3,741 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Large planked, hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings frame the airy and seamlessly open space of the first floor’s combined living room, dining room and kitchen. A large, freestanding, double-sided fieldstone fireplace divides the living room from the dining room and the compact, smartly designed and appointed kitchen with its butcher- block center island and integrated snack bar is visibly open to the living room.
The second floor family room has an entire wall of built-in bookcases. The floor’s living space sets the tone, as does the first floor, for interpersonal connections, conversation and music. Glass sliders open to a trellis-shaded deck and sweeping coastline and whitewater views.
A completely detached guesthouse on the backside of the property with its own-gated driveway has one bedroom and one bathroom. A loft-like artist’s studio with skylight-topped- 17’ ceilings is also the “right size” with 1,600 square feet. A lovely swimming pool complements the mature landscaping and grounded serenity of the property.
Currently, Gilpin has four projects in post-production due for release in late 2017 and 2018 including “Only Human” and “Benjamin.”
