The Hemsworth brothers have sold off a modern Malibu home they owned together for approx. $6.3 million, Mansion Global has learned.
The four-bedroom white-stucco home is located at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains. The three brothers and actors— Liam, 30, Chris, 37, and Luke, 40—owned the property together, as a peaceful vacation spot, according to information from the listing agency.
From its inland perch, the contemporary hacienda-inspired house overlooks both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean and has access to nearby horse stables, according to the listing with Eric Haskell of The Agency.
The deal is so fresh it has yet to log in public property records, and little is known about the buyer, except that they were represented by agents Chris Cortazzo and Susan Saul of Compass.
The Hemsworths bought the property through a trust in 2016 for $3.45 million, according to property records. They listed the home in September for $6.3 million.
Amenities, befitting a triple threat of Hollywood heartthrobs, include a home theatre that could be repurposed into a family room, according to the listing. There’s also a 750-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar and an open kitchen with restaurant-grade appliances and quartz countertops.
While the 427sqm home boasts a modern open floor plan, floor-to-ceiling sliders in the kitchen can separate it from the dining room in a pinch. Other contemporary design details include polished concrete floors, marble bathroom finishes and tall walls suited for displaying artwork, according to the listing.
Outside, an outdoor dining area boasts dramatic views across the 1.3-acre property and over the mountains, images show.
The brothers have been riding out the pandemic in their native Australia, and have traded in their Malibu retreat in favour of New South Wales’ sunny surf spot Byron Bay, where the Hemsworths have reportedly purchased multiple properties.
Following the devastation of recent flooding, experts are urging government intervention to drive the cessation of building in areas at risk.
