Don’t get frustrated! Things don’t have to be so complicated — especially if you have a cool $12 million burning a hole in your metaphorical pocket. All you have to do is throw that cash down on this newly available Avril Lavigne-owned property, and you can chill out and enjoy sweeping coastline views from a private bluff-top estate nestled within a secluded neighborhood enclave high above Malibu’s famed Zuma Beach.
The Canadian singer/songwriter paid $7.8 million back in October 2020 for the place, which was originally constructed in the late 1960s and then extensively renovated before Lavigne’s purchase by luxury spec developer Scott Gillen. Sited on a flag-shaped lot spanning almost three-quarters of an acre, the property includes a three-bedroom, three-bath main house and detached guesthouse with its own bedroom and bath — for a total of just under 3,500 square feet of living space.
As for the main house, open-concept interiors are highlighted by a spacious great room featuring a living room resting beneath a particularly eye-catching exposed wood-beam ceiling, and hosting a fireplace flanked by built-in shelving and walls of glass allowing for a seamless indoor/outdoor flow. An integrated work station and a dining area adjoin the sleekly designed kitchen, which is outfitted with high-end stainless appliances and an expansive eat-in island.
Tucked away in its own wing is a spacious master retreat sporting access to the outdoors, a custom walk-in closet, and spa-inspired bath equipped with a clawfoot soaking tub and glass-encased shower; and elsewhere is another bedroom that’s been converted into a gym and a temperature-controlled wine closet.
Outdoors, the grassy grounds contain a big patio ideal for lounging and entertaining with a fire-pit and barbecue station, as well as an infrared sauna, and a wood sundeck nestled alongside a pool flaunting an inset spa and a Baja shelf. There’s also an attached two-car garage that connects to the aforementioned guesthouse, as well as a water-softening system and backup generator.
