cademy Award-winning actress Halle Berry is parting ways with her cherished Malibu beach residence, according to a recent Wall Street Journal feature. Berry, who took ownership of this modern beachfront property in 2004 for $8.5 million—the same year she played the lead role in “Catwoman”—initially lived in the house full-time for a year before it became her weekend sanctuary. Now, after owning it for nearly two decades, Berry has put the 5,083-square-foot home up for sale, priced at $18 million. “I am on a journey to create a new, magical space for myself,” Berry shared with the publication.
The home presents a sleek, curved white exterior and offers 60 feet of prime Pacific Ocean frontage. “I’ve always been drawn to the ocean,” Berry, known for her role in “Monster’s Ball,” told the Wall Street Journal. “My house is perched on the beach, yet it offers a great deal of privacy, sitting at the end of a cul-de-sac, away from crowded spots.” The added security and exclusivity of the Malibu Cove Colony’s guard-gated community further enhance the home’s privacy.
With wall-to-wall glass overlooking the ocean, the residence is designed to fully embrace its tranquil coastal setting. Expansive balconies grace both levels of the home, and a rooftop deck offers an additional secluded space for sunbathing and soaking in the ocean sounds.
“I’ve tailored the space to suit my lifestyle,” Berry commented on her extensive remodeling of the property, originally constructed in 1991. The home’s interior adopts a subdued design aesthetic, featuring a serene and neutral color scheme, which allows the breathtaking ocean views to take center stage. This is further accentuated by large skylights and extensive window walls. The house boasts high ceilings and flowing lines throughout its structure. The main living space is airy and open, with a wood-burning fireplace, a cozy alcove kitchen fitted with dark wood cabinetry and modern stainless-steel appliances, a breakfast bar, built-in bench seating for dining, and a lofted office space that Berry utilized during her time there.
