America's Sweetheart is about to become America's landlord.
How would you like to be a Pretty Woman‘s tenant? Oscar winner Julia Roberts just put her three-bed, two-bath home in sunny Malibu, CA up for rent, and the sun-drenched spread is ripe for the taking. While Roberts purchased the ranch-style home just last year for $3.895 million, you can shack up in the house for $10,500 per month.
Originally built in 1949, this classic California ranch has been thoughtfully and tastefully renovated. Measuring 1650 square feet, the home welcomes guests into its bright, white living room with a cozy hearth and wood-beamed ceilings. Continue into the spacious kitchen, where stainless steel appliances complement the large center island, which is ideal for any aspiring chef or busy family. Ample deck space means plenty of spots to curl up and look out on the lush greenery of Malibu. A quaint guest house with a deck of its own provides space for visitors, while the gorgeous yard has been impeccably landscaped with fruit trees and tropical plants. A spacious driveway and detached two-car garage provide additional storage. And if catching some rays is your jam, consider yourself in luck: The tenant receives a highly coveted key to Riviera 1 Beach, also known as Point Dume.
While we’re guessing Roberts won’t be popping by to collect rent checks, chances are she won’t be all that far away; her main home is also in the Point Dume area. Julia’s also owned multiple Hawaiian properties, including a $17 million estate she listed back in 2013, and a couple in New York. The first is located in the Gramercy Park neighborhood, while she sold her West Village home for $4.5 million back in 2015.
