Pamela Anderson, the actress who rose to fame playing a California beach lifeguard on “Baywatch,” is putting her own California beach house on the market for around $19.4 million.

Before buying this property, Ms Anderson said she had lived right on the sand, but found that fans would come up to the property looking for her. “A girl actually ended up in our guest bedroom and had my ‘Baywatch’ swimsuit on,” she said, referring to the bright-red one-piece she was frequently photographed in. “That was it for me.”

In 2000, Ms Anderson bought a site, which backs onto a lagoon, for about US$1.8 million, records show; she said she later replaced a “shabby chic” cottage with a new home for herself and her two young sons.

“It took me 10 years to build—I put another $8 million cash into it,” Ms Anderson said in written comments.

Located in a gated community in Malibu, Calif., the three-bedroom house is about 5,500 square feet and includes a large open-plan living, dining room and kitchen area with a fireplace, a rooftop deck and an expansive pool deck with spaces for outdoor dining and sunbathing. The kitchen has slab stone counters and glass pocket doors that open to the pool. A wood-and-glass staircase leads to the main bedroom suite, which has a private balcony. There is also a one-bedroom guesthouse on the property.

Ms Anderson, who in recent years has appeared on reality television shows like “Dancing with the Stars,” noted that the property was inspired by some of California’s best known Modernist architecture, such as the Case Study Houses, experimental, modern homes designed by architects like Richard Neutra.

“I love a vintage edge/pop art sensibility and I’m an activist so it is 100% sustainable Teak that is also ‘nonconflict’ flown in from Burma,” Ms Anderson said in her comments. “I must have paid $1 million just in materials for siding. I don’t like orange—so we bleached and waxed—the finish is more blonde.”

Some of her favourite features of the property include the guesthouse, which she said has “the most beautiful view,” and the reflective mosaic tiles in the pool. Her bedroom, she said, is “just the most sensual and clean space” with a bathtub in the room and a sauna attached. Ms Anderson also installed solar panels on the property and planted an irrigated vegetable garden.

Ms Anderson, 53, said she left Canada in her early 20s to work with Playboy and is now selling to go back to her roots. She recently married her onetime bodyguard Dan Hayhurst, and the two plan to live on her ranch on the water on Vancouver Island, she said. That property was owned by her late grandmother.

“When she passed, I just let it go for 20 years while I worked and travelled,” Ms Anderson said. “I have spent the last year here renovating, landscaping, creating gardens so that we can live sustainably. Greenhouse, potter’s wheel, canning pickles and beets. I’m creating my life here now again where it all started.”

“I made it home in one piece, a miracle. I’m a lucky girl,” she said.

Tomer Fridman of the Tomer Fridman Group has the Malibu listing.

When people talk about making a seachange, chances are this is the kind of property on the NSW South Coast that they have in mind.

Open for inspection for the first time this Saturday, 24 Point Street Bulli offers rare absolute beachfront, with never-to-be-built-out north facing views of the ocean. Located on the tip of Sandon Point, this two-storey property is a surfer’s dream with one of Australia’s most iconic surf breaks just beyond the back wall.

On the lower floor at street level, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a family bathroom and an ensuite in the master suite. A fourth bedroom is on the upper floor, along with the main living area, and is serviced by its own bathroom. 

While this would make a spectacular holiday home, it is well equipped for day-to-day living, with a spacious gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry set into the articulated open plan living area on the first floor. A separate media room to the street side of the property on this level provides additional living space. 

Every aspect of this property has been considered to take in the light and views, with high ceilings internally and spacious, north facing decks on both levels to take in views of rolling waves. If the pull of the ocean is irresistible, it’s just a 100m walk to feel the sand between your toes.

The house is complemented by a Mediterranean, coastal-style garden, while the garage has room for a workshop and two car spaces.

An easy walk to Bulli village, the property is a 20 minute drive from the major hub of Wollongong and just over an hour to Sydney.
