Ryan Murphy is best known for creating hit shows like “Glee,” “Nip/Tuck” and “American Horror Story,” but in real estate circles he is also known for his homes. Last year he picked up two new places — a Spanish-style home in Beverly Hills and another in Malibu that was previously owned by actress Charlize Theron.
Murphy may be experiencing a bit of real estate remorse because only a year after buying the Malibu home from Theron for $6,562,000, he’s listed it for a little uptick in price: $6,995,000.
Situated on a prime beachfront lot, Murphy’s now-listed Malibu home was purchased by Theron and her former husband Stuart Thompson in 2003 for $2,450,024. After the two split, the property was listed first for sale for $7.5 million, and then posted as a rental before Murphy snatched it up.
The 2,095-square-foot home has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths as well as beachy features like an oversized water-front deck with lounge, cabana, spa, fire pit and outdoor shower.
Hosted Obama in Beverly Hills
However, it’s Murphy’s other home in Beverly Hills that has garnered the most media attention. Last night, Murphy’s Spanish Colonial was the site for a fund-raising dinner for President Obama following an celebrity-studded LGBT event. The dinner, priced at $25,000 a plate, was attended by 70 donors, including Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, “Glee” actress Jane Lynch and her co-star Darren Criss.
Murphy bought the Beverly Hills home from Diane Keaton, who did her own flipping on the property, for $10 million. (Keaton bought the home for $8.1 million.) Designed by architect Ralph Flewelling, 8,434-square-foot home has 7 bedrooms and 9 baths. Like most high-end homes in 90210, the house is private and gated.
