Let’s All Go Look In Windows Of Bill Simmons’ New $7.5 Million Malibu Beach House
It may be located along Malibu's famed Carbon Beach -- known as Billionaire's Beach to the locals -- but it should be easy to peer into Bill Simmons' newly-purchased residence. Despite efforts of Hollywood notables who live there, the beach is no longer private, meaning that you can walk up to the property line and give Bill shit for being a Boston sports fan who doesn't live in Boston.
Proving that being fired by ESPN is one of the best moves a person can make, Simmons recently purchased the 1,500-square-foot, three-bedroom two-story Malibu house for a mere $7.5 million. That new HBO deal must be pretty, pretty, pret-tay good.
The house was never formally on the market, but Variety sniffed out the details via LA County tax records and other sources. Hmm -- I wonder if Simmons is aware that soon his new purchase may be reclaimed by the sea. Sorry no refunds.
There’s a small walled, gated and tree-shaded courtyard at the front, a slender oceanside balcony on the upper floor, and a wide row of French doors on the lower level that open to a deep oceanfront deck with sunken hot tub. Among the other rich and powerful who maintain getaways on what is arguably Malibu’s most coveted stretch of sand are David Geffen, Leslie Moonves and Julie Chen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Joel Silver and, of course, tech tycoon Larry Ellison, who lays claim to at least nine of the 70-ish homes that line that stretch of beach.
This is to go along with Simmons' other Los Angeles home, a 4,200-square-foot, English cottage-style five-bedroom job in Hancock Park, purchased in 2007 for $3.1 million.
Simmons, who has a podcast going, is also said to be working on a documentary about André the Giant for HBO, in addition to being the host of an HBO sports/pop culture show next year, and working on other projects in his deal with the network.
