          Hollywood funnyman with a lengthy roster of hit films

          Home Stats

          5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 2,866 square feet, beachfront

          Price

          $13,400,000

          Jim Carrey has said “alriiiighty then!” to an offer on his beachfront Malibu Colony home. Property records and The Real Estalker show that the funnyman sold the crib for $13.4M, which is less than the $13.95M he had originally hoped to bag for the home.

          While most celebs are moving INTO Malibu as summer heats up, Carrey is going against the grain and departing the celebrity-infested area of Malibu Colony.

          The just-sold home has 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom, and 2,866 square-feet and is situated on one of the best sections of sandy beach in coveted Malibu Colony. According to public records, Carrey bought the home on October 18, 2002 for $9.75M, which means he made a pretty penny on the sale.

          Let’s dig into the details on his just-ditched home:

          Sun-drenched and spacious, the living areas have a seamless flow with an open kitchen, dining, living, and family room all leading to the expansive deck with removable privacy walls. A spectacular upstairs ocean-front master suite features a fireplace, balcony, beautifully appointed master bath and generous walk-in closet.

          Three additional bedrooms upstairs are situated to afford each room maximum privacy. A large rooftop viewing deck with spa tub and mood lights is perfect for enjoying the surf, sunset, and mountains.

          We can’t say we understand why Carrey wants out of Malibu, but we’ll keep our eyes on his next real estate move.

              $10,825,000

              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.

                $7,750,000

                Pamela Anderson, the iconic sex symbol who etched herself into the American psyche by donning the famous red Baywatch swimsuit, is slightly underwater when it comes to her finances. For months and months, the blonde bombshell has been plagued with negative news stories about unpaid taxes and out-of-control spending on her home remodel. And despite being a household name, Pam is now doing what any other American in her situation must do –  downsize! The blonde beauty often rented out her longtime Malibu Colony home, but now, the property that was once her sanctuary is a money pit, and she’s officially put it on the market for $7,750,000. Property records show that she purchased the home on December 29, 2000, for $1,800,000. There’s no telling how much Pam poured into the home’s construction and multiple remodels over the years, but with the listing price almost $6 million more than what she paid for it, here’s hoping she’ll make a profit so she can put her financial woes behind her.

                Pam’s amazing home is within walking distance from all things Malibu. Finely crafted, the teak-sided home is perfect for enjoying quiet beach days, while still being close to the action. According to listing information, you “enter through the front Barb Wire stone gate, cross the small courtyard of olive trees and lavender, and push open the ultra-wide swinging glass door, and find yourself in an open living room and kitchen design with a top-of-the-line home theater and black baby grand piano.”

                Philip Vertoch was the home’s architect and Josh Chryssanthou and Pamela Anderson herself are responsible for the design.

                Chris Cortazzo holds the listing.

                  Jim Carrey is hoping to harness some of his impeccable comedic timing to quickly sell his amazing Malibu home. According to the brand-spanking-new listing, Carrey’s home is “priced for an immediate sale” and available for move in immediately!

                  Priced at $13.95M, the home isn’t exactly a bargain to the Average Joe. Why the hefty price tag? Well, the 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom, 2,866 square-foot home is situated on one of the best sections of sandy beach in coveted Malibu Colony. According to public records, Carrey bought the home on October 18, 2002 for $9.75M, which means he’s set to make a pretty penny on the sale.

Like all beachfront Malibu homes should be, Carrey’s place is perfect for entertaining or relaxing. A spectacular upstairs ocean-front master suite features a fireplace, balcony, beautifully appointed master bath and generous walk-in closet.

                  Three additional bedrooms upstairs are situated to afford each room maximum privacy. A large rooftop viewing deck with spa tub and mood lights is perfect for enjoying the surf, sunset, and mountains.

                  The home is nestled within the exclusive 24 hour guard-gated Malibu Colony, home to oodles of other celebrities.

                  Carrey owns another home in Los Angeles and was recently spotted looking at New York City penthouses.

                  Janelle Friedman of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the Malibu listing.
