"Sex and the City's" Malibu Home, Estate of the Day
The beachfront tri-level that was used to film the first "Sex and the City" movie has come on the market as a $55,000 a month lease. It is also available for sale at $13 million as a pocket listing, not in the MLS. At the time the 2008 film was shot here, it was listed at about $17 million and rents out in the summer for $75,000 a month.
The property was portrayed as the home of Kim Cattrall's high-powered public relations character and filming occurred for about two weeks here. In the film, sexpot bombshell Samantha Jones shares the home with her fictional actor boyfriend, Smith, who encourages Samantha to spend less time traveling to New York and more right here. Easy to see the argument why. It's an incredible property with five cantilevered balconies overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A second Malibu property was used to film the girls' "Mexican" honeymoon hotel in the same movie -- the one that put Carrie in a "Mexi-coma."
Since the movie was shot, the beachfront home's entry level has been redone, bringing the square footage to almost 5,800. The architectural home has a contemporary kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, CaesarStone quartz countertops and travertine floors. There is a large entertainment room, a wet bar, wine cellar and a maid's quarters with separate entrance. Being smack on the oceanfront has it's advantages too, of course. The ocean side has floor to mid-roof arched glass for a dramatic ocean and sky view. There are balconies on both sides, creating a transparent sea-and-sky environment.
The home was designed by architect Jay Vanos and sits on 50 feet of prime Malibu beachfront. There are five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances and high-tech lighting. Hosts five bedrooms and six and a half baths. Features gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, high-tech lighting, and Wenge cabinetry. Many elements of the home are customized, including the state-of-the-art sound system, premium cherry wood and limestone floorings, a remote control skylight screen. Each of the three fireplaces is made of Santa Barbara sandstone.
The showcase home has a dramatic master suite, well-displayed in the movie with some of the original furnishings. The master bath has a freestanding tub with ocean views.
