About Chris Blakely

The property, situated on a hidden cove in West Malibu, has been in the owners' family since 1948. The house was redesigned and rebuilt in 1992 by noted architect Ed Niles. Owned by two brothers since 2010, the house has been refurbished inside and out. Travertine floors upstairs were refinished in September 2015, and new sliding screen doors for the picture windows were installed in November 2015.

Chris Blakely purchased this House in 1948

Why Chris Blakely chose Western Malibu

This secluded beach is in one of the most beautiful coves in all of Malibu. That is why numerous celebrities have chosen to buy homes nearby. It is conveniently close to Zuma Beach, Trancas, and Point Dume to the south, Leo Carrillo, County Line and Neptune's Net to the north. We are a short drive up the coast from the Malibu Pier, Surfrider Beach, the Malibu Colony, Pepperdine University, Geoffrey's Restaurant and Paradise Cove.

What makes this House unique

Perfect location for swimming, kayaking, surfing, diving, fishing, standup paddling, skimboarding, windsurfing, or just relaxing! Unique set-up can accommodate more than one family. 3.5 miles from Trancas Canyon/Broad Beach shopping center. Close to shops and restaurants on Westward Beach, Heathercliff Road and Kanan/Dume. Little known fact: during the filming of the movie 'The Fan' the studio rented the house to provide 'green rooms' for the actors. Various other celebrities have chosen the location for their reality TV show, their rock video, and for their beauty product advertising.
