Edward Norton, considered to be a “special segment actor” because he gravitates towards multiple dimension or personality roles, recently listed his classic, ocean front Malibu beach house for $5.25M.
Built in 1928, this three time Oscar nominated actor, writer, producer, filmmaker and activist bought the home 10 years ago for a reported $2.72M. The home has 43 feet of beach frontage on Las Flores or “Dog Beach” (considered “gold” in real estate circles) and can be split into two halves.
The top unit of this fully furnished home has two bedrooms with one shared bath, a full kitchen and a wrap-around ocean-view porch. The bottom unit has one bedroom, one bath, a full kitchen and a large, open working area. Both units in the two story home overlook a spacious wooden deck, hot tub, private sandy yard and a Tiki-style hut that is perfect for out-door parties and enjoyment.
Norton, like many noted film professionals, has several noted residential properties underneath his real estate umbrella. Last year, he acquired the 1968 architectural masterpiece known as “Stevens House” designed by the famed architect John Lautner in the much sought after Malibu Colony. In 2001 Norton bought and still owns a Los Angeles home formerly owned by Drew Barrymore. He also owns a penthouse apartment in Greenwich Village.
