‘Modern Family’ Creator’s Beachfront Malibu Home Sells for Just Over $14M
All good things must come to an end, and that came in 2020 for Modern Family. Steve Levitan’s sitcom, acclaimed and popular juggernaut that it was, aired its last episode after 11 seasons. And now Levitan’s time owning this Malibu home, which he and his wife listed in October of 2020 for $15.95 million, is a wrap as well. Officially out of his hands, the six-level beachfront abode sold for $14.174 million this fall, according to the LA Times. The publication also reports that he first nabbed it in 2002.
Built in 1995, the beach house’s prime Malibu location on Broad Beach is hard to beat. Set above the sand with views of Lechuza Point on one side and Point Dume on the other, the enviable coastal locale finds complements in the airy interiors. While some spaces could use quick cosmetic updates to fit the new owner’s taste, the abode’s clean and white color palette is perfect for allowing the ocean views to sing.
With six bedrooms, perhaps all of the fictitious Pritchett family could find a place to lay their head here under one roof. All their homes aren’t too far away, as the show is set in LA and even filmed in Malibu on occasion.
Tony Mark and Russell Grether of the Mark & Grether Group at Compass, Kimberley Pfeiffer of Compass and Donald Richstone of Coldwell Banker Malibu Colony shared the listing. Kathy Doyle of Kathy Doyle Estates represented the buyer.
