Robert De Niro’s Oceanfront Malibu Pad in the 1995 Hit Film ‘Heat’ Lists for $21M

It’s one thing to see homes where movie stars live, but there are many properties that are movie stars in their own right—such as this oceanfront Malibu pad that was home to Robert De Niro’s character in the hit 1995 film Heat. From starring on the big screen with De Niro to stealing the show on the market, it just listed for $21 million.

Though De Niro did not live in the Ron Goldman-designed home himself, he filmed here and the location in the 24-hour guard-gated Malibu Cove Colony is certainly fit for a celebrity looking for a private coastal residence. The 3,502-square-foot contemporary sits directly on the beach and has multiple decks for watching the sunset or stargazing. However, when the weather “heats” up, it is just as easy to enjoy the view from inside or take a swim in the waves just below.

Upon stepping into the airy, two-story entryway, light floods in from the glass walls overlooking the ocean and from the skylights above. Glass and the views it allows for are the home’s defining characteristics. The four-bedroom home’s most memorable moment in Heat takes place in the living room, as a wide shot of the space shows De Niro gazing out at the stormy, foggy ocean.

Although there’s no Oscar category for homes that stand out in movies, some nominees for such a category could include the French villa featured in To Catch a Thief, the Montecito mansion that served as a backdrop in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s docuseries, and a Rye home where Audrey Hepburn filmed Sabrina. Similarly, this listing is forever marked with De Niro’s presence, craft, and legacy.

Jane Dorian and Shaun Alan-Lee at Carolwood Estates hold the splashy listing.
