When many prospective homeowners snatch up a piece of pristine beach-front property, they rarely let it go. However, actor Jim Carrey recently went against this practice after selling his Malibu property for an estimated $13.4 million.
The 2,866-square-foot estate, located in coveted the Malibu Colony, boasts five bedrooms and just as many bathrooms as well as a rooftop spa and endless views of the Pacific Ocean, the Huffington Post reports.
Although Carrey received slightly less than the $13.95 million asking price when the property joined the list of homes for sale in Malibu last summer, the actor pocketed a sizable profit from when he initially purchased the estate for $9.75 million in 2002.
However, Carrey is not expected to leave the Los Angeles area any time soon. Currently, the 51-year-old actor has a number of Los Angeles homes in his portfolio, with his primary home located in Brentwood, according to the Real Estalker.
Carrey's former residence may be well outside the budget of many buyers in the Los Angeles area, but this doesn't mean there aren't still numerous options to make the transition to homeownership, especially at the summer selling season heats up.
