Jonah Hill Drops $9 Million on Malibu Colony Getaway
Jonah Hill is an actor, director, producer, comedian, and screenwriter from Los Angeles who began his career as an entertainer in 1999. He is known for his roles in both comedic and dramatic films and for his voice roles. Some of the comedy films for which Jonah Hill is known are ‘Knocked up,’ ‘Superbad,’ ‘ Get Him to the Greek,’ ‘Funny People,’ ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall,’ ’21 Jump Street,’ ’22 Jump Street,’ and ‘This Is the End.’ His drama films include ‘Moneyball’ and ‘The Wolf of Wall street.’ Hill’s career success has made him a wealthy man, and Wealthy Gorilla lists his net worth as 450 million. His wealth has allowed him to buy high-end properties, including a four-bedroom loft apartment in Manhattan’s Noho neighborhood, which he bought in 2016. The actor also has a home in Santa Monica, which was his main residence. He bought the property in 2019 from singer-songwriter Jessie Jo Stark. In what is perhaps a coincidence, Hill’s latest real estate purchase is a Malibu home he bought from Starks parents, Richard and Laurie Stark, who own the Chrome Hearts jewelry and apparel line. His purchase has set him back $9 million.
An Overview of Jonah Hill’s Malibu Mansion
Hill’s contemporary new home was built in 1980, and it is located in Malibu Colony, which is an exclusive gated enclave. The neighborhood is already home to many famous residents, including Rob Reiner, John McEnroe, Flea, and Sting. Although the property is close to the beach, it is not a waterfront house. The contemporary home was built in 1980, and it has a boxy style with a flat-roof design. Inside, the house measures 3,600-square-feet, and it has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The Malibu pad sits on a lot of 7,609-square-feet. When the Starks bought the house in 2017, they paid $7.3 million. They put the house on the market in 2020 for $11 million but removed the property from the market due to a lack of interest and no offers. Hill stepped in with a low offer of $9 million, which the Starks accepted.
Inside Hill’s Malibu Pad
Most of the ground floor of the Malibu pad is an open-plan great room, with sections for the main living area, a dining area, and a kitchen. White walls and white-tiled floors run throughout the lower level, and the rear of the room opens to the decking area in the backyard. On walking through the house’s front door, there is a double-height dining area with an eight-seat dining suite with a large chandelier. Off the dining area is a staircase up to the second floor, which has a glass-lined balcony. Through from the dining room is the main living room, which also has a double-height ceiling and a chandelier. High on the walls of both the living and dining rooms are small slatted windows. The kitchen runs the full length of the great room, although this section of the room only has a single-height ceiling. Having a different ceiling height defines the kitchen as a separate room. There is black cabinetry and metal shelving running along the wall, which gives the kitchen an industrial-chic style. In this room, top-of-the-line appliances are plentiful, and the room is lit with ceiling spotlights.
The kitchen’s long island is unusual as it is open underneath, rather than housing cabinetry for extra storage. There are bar stools to seat eight running alongside the island, so it is good for informal dining or for entertaining guests while cooking. When Jonah Hill does not want to sit in the large open-plan room and wants to sit somewhere that is cozier and more private, he can go to the media and family room. This room has a huge wall-mounted television and a pull-down cinema screen. There is a comfortable-looking L-shaped sofa for relaxing while watching a movie. Two of the guest bedrooms are on the ground floor, while the third guest bedroom and the master suite are on the property’s upper floor. The master suite is a sumptuous space, with one end of the bedroom devoted to the bed and enough space at the other end of the room for a sitting area with a fireplace. In the spa-style ensuite bathroom, with a sauna and separate steam room. It is lit with spotlights, and there is plenty of storage. The master suite also has a private deck.
The Exterior of the Property
The front of Hill’s new home has a plain white and windowless façade, with just one door leading into the property. There is also an integrated garage, plus space for parking on the front courtyard. Trees separate the front yard from the neighboring property. Beyond the front door, there is a walled courtyard before entering the house. This private space is partially covered, and it has stone-tiled floors and outdoor furniture. Fortunately, the walled courtyard is not the only outdoor space at this property, although the plot is fairly compact. To the rear of the house, there is a covered, full outdoor kitchen which is fully equipped with high-end appliances and has storage for everything the homeowner needs for outdoor entertaining and dining.
The outdoor kitchen leads to a decked area with a dining suite, so it is ideal for alfresco entertaining or for dining in the sunshine. Next to the decking is a lagoon-style pool with an inset spa. The rear yard is dotted with palm trees and surrounded by a tall, manicured hedge. Further outdoor space is available on the decked rooftop terrace, says Dirt.com. The views from the rooftop deck are predominantly over the roofs of the neighboring houses and the surrounding area, although there are also glimpses of the ocean. Jonah Hill can also explore the local area, as the house came with access rights to the beach and a golf cart for getting around the neighborhood.
