Emma Stone Lists a Cliffside Malibu Oasis Previously Featured in NYC&G for $4.3M
High in the cliffs of Malibu, one home has gotten a lot of buzz in recent years. Revitalized by its previous owners, featured in NYC&G in 2018, and picked up by Academy Award-winning actress Emma Stone in 2019, the pad is now a not-so-hidden gem. It has a beguiling stillness about it, perched in the midst of beautiful vegetation and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A dreamy oasis, the abode gave Stone a relaxing refuge for a few years and now she is ready to move on from the property.
Dropping $3.25 million on the 1958-built ranch, the Cruela and La La Land star will make a tidy profit if it sells for the asking price: $4.295 million. Stone seems to have just made slight cosmetic changes tuned to her style, such as painting the front door a more subdued blue and adding color to the kitchen with burnt orange tiles.
The previous stewards, who nabbed the property in 2015, gave the home a more substantial makeover to brighten things up and highlight the 180-degree ocean views. That included slathering the spaces in white paint, taking down walls in the kitchen to create an open flow, and modernizing the bathrooms. The Japanese soaking tub is a highlight wellness enthusiast buyers will surely appreciate.
However, given this is Malibu, the outdoors are just as important. Patios surround the 1,764-square-foot house as well as flora such as eucalyptus, yucca, and blue agave. Installed by the home’s original owners years ago, these plants are a key part of the 3.2-acre property’s character.
With three bedrooms, enamoring living spaces inside and out, and an additional 392-square-foot bonus room and art studio, this retreat can be a treasured getaway or year-round home sweet home. Eric Lavey of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
