3. Carbon Beach Compound Malibu, CA – Sold for $85 million in May 2017
This very private property is located on the Pacific Coast Highway, along Billionaires’ Beach and consists of 5 lots combined into one and 5 buildings, including the 2-story main house and 2 guest homes. In addition, it boasts a professional grade screening room, a lily pond, a beachside pool and spa, multiple shaded verandas and open terraces, and of course, a private beach. The previous owner, David Geffen, opted to sell the property off the market to an unnamed buyer. This area is known for having some of the most expensive real estate in the U.S. It’s interesting to note that Mr. Geffen was committed to keeping the property out of the public eye. As a result, he constructed fake garages along the edge of the highway to confuse anyone looking for it and has refused to publish any photos of the interior.
