According to reports from TMZ, Halle Berry is looking for a swanky Malibu beach house to live in while her Hollywood Hills home gets a little work done. It’s hard to fathom that anyone would drop $50,000 per month in rent! So just in case she’s wondering what comparable homes she could buy and still spend less each month in mortgage payments, we present Redfin Reco, Malibu beach house edition:
List Price: $12,495,000
Estimated Monthly Mortgage Payment (30 yr fixed/20% down): $45,587
Sq. Ft.: 4,054
Halle should choose this one if she’s looking for a grassy yard and huge pool for her daughter to play in. This one-story home has more of a traditional family home layout than the other two- and three-story homes. Halle’s master bedroom has its own en-suite kitchen and her guests would also enjoy their own private patios.
List Price: $10,900,000
Estimated Monthly Mortgage Payment (30 yr fixed/20% down): $39,768
Sq. Ft.: 2,280
Here’s a classic beach house option for Halle: she can enjoy the cozy Cape Cod style in the heart of warm and sunny Malibu. This home was recently renovated for a modern feel, and the grassy backyard will provide Halle with some privacy when she’s hanging out or grilling with friends on the patio.
List Price: $7,900,000
Estimated Monthly Mortgage Payment (15 yr fixed/20% down): $42,889
Sq. Ft.: 1,899
Here, Halle would have a 50-foot-wide plot of private beach all to herself. With the third bedroom designed as a guest suite and a layout with lots of room for extra beds, Halle could host several friends and family members for the weekend!
