Judy Garland’s Marvelous Former Malibu Home Lists for $3.9M
Nearly three years after being purchased by a Wizard of Oz devotee, the former Malibu home of Judy Garland has returned to the market. The circa-1947 house, located on Las Tunas Beach in Malibu, served as a retreat for the iconic Old Hollywood actress, her second husband Vincent Minnelli, and their daughter Liza Minnelli during the late ’40s and early ’50s. In LA, it isn’t so rare to see the Academy Award-winner’s past residences up for sale. However, an Old Hollywood legend’s home with direct beach access and stunning views? There’s no place like this home, now listed for $3.895 million.
The pristine beach house boasts a simple 1,311 square feet with three bedrooms and three bathrooms offering a sweet escape for visitors, too. Extensively renovated in recent years, its interiors feel perhaps better suited to Cape Cod than California. White covers the main living space whether on beautiful millwork or the brick fireplace, the former crawls up to the soaring vaulted ceilings. Ocean views then take center stage, always visible through 10-foot accordion doors.
Happily, those doors open onto a deck ideal for outdoor entertaining or simply sipping morning coffee. Just above, the master suite opens out onto a similarly-apportioned balcony.
It’s easy to see why Garland found this home so restful. Now, someone new can experience first-hand how the star lived in breezy Malibu. Sally Forster Jones of Compass holds the listing.
