A-list director Judd Apatow, famous for movies like ’40 Year Old Virgin,’ ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘Knocked Up,’ and his actress wife Leslie Mann have just purchased a Malibu Colony home for $10,825,000 from the estate of late ‘Pretty Woman’ producer Laura Ziskin. Property records show that the deal closed on March 19, 2013.
The Apatow/Mann family’s new oceanfront contemporary cottage is theirs just in time for summer! The home is situated in the exclusive guard gated and celebrity-laden community of Malibu Colony. A romantic 1930′s bungalow, the home is tranquil yet chic and comfortable and sits directly on the beach. A gourmet kitchen and cozy family room open to a private, lush courtyard entry. The living room, dining room and cozy sunroom all feature expansive ocean views and lead to patios and the private Colony Beach. The second floor features 3 ensuite bedrooms. The large master bedroom overlooks the Pacific Ocean through a wall of glass. The master also includes a wood-burning fireplace and a spacious patio leading to the sand. The property also features a two-car garage and a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom guesthouse.
According to other plugged-in real estate sources, the Apatow/Mann family are looking building a massive custom home on a lot they purchased in Santa Monica last year for $8,600,000. Their forthcoming custom digs must be something amazing, because they’d be decamping from a home in Brentwood that they paid $18,250,000 for in 2009. Apatow also still owns a 4,356 square foot Beverly Hills Post Office-area home that he purchased in 2005 for $1,656,000.
