Leonardo DiCaprio’s Malibu – For $25,000 a month, you can stay in the oceanfront bungalow
Eighteen years after purchasing it, Leonardo DiCaprio is parting with his Malibu residence. It was originally listed for $10.95 million, but DiCaprio has placed his home on the rental market for the summer season, according to the Los Angeles Times. DiCaprio purchased the 1,765-square-foot three-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow on the ritzy stretch of Carbon Beach—also known as Billionaire’s Beach—back in 1998 for $1.6 million, presumably with his earnings from the ’97 blockbuster Titanic. The cottage has been well preserved and updated over the years.
It has all of the contemporary touches of a Pinterest-ready California home. The handsome kitchen is outfitted with a herringbone backsplash, marble countertops, and brass finishes. The floors are whitewashed and strewn with vintage rugs. The ceilings have been painted white. There is little divide between the indoors and outdoors, which includes a sun deck overlooking the ocean and a private hot tub. Plus, gated entry ensures complete privacy from the paparazzi.
The comfortable yet understated home is exactly what you’d expect from the down-to-earth actor, who’s lived in far worse conditions. See: the Canadian wilderness DiCaprio endured while filming The Revenant. For a closer look inside, check out photos from the listing below.
