Malibu real estate - especially 24-hour guard-gated beachfront - comes at premium, even more so if a celebrity name is tied to it.
Jim Carrey's Malibu home recently hit the market for $13.95 million. Situated in the Malibu Colony, the contemporary home features all the necessary amenities for entertaining: an expansive deck with removable walls, master suite balcony, and rooftop deck with hot tub and mood lighting. Likely, the funnyman hosted some of his nearby celebrity neighbors here.
Carrey bought the home in 2002, shortly after filming a serious role in "The Majestic." Known primarily for his humor roles in movies like "Dumb and Dumber," "Liar Liar," and "Bruce Almighty," Carrey also has a host of dramatic roles under his belt, including starring roles in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "The Truman Show."
Besides extensive outdoor entertaining space, Carrey's home has 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and 2,800 square feet. The open floor plan leads to much of the outdoor space and large picture windows allow sunshine to stream in. Described as "move-in" ready, the private home will no doubt appeal to someone searching for a piece of celebrity-worthy slice of real estate.
Listed by real estate agent Janelle Friedman of Sotheby's, a monthly payment on Carrey's home would be $50,300, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year-mortgage, according to Zillow's mortgage calculator.
