Iron Man’s modern cliff-side home is featured prominently in the most recent installment of the Marvel film series. And while Iron Man 3′s co-star Jon Favreau pointed out in a recent interview that the home isn’t real–just a computer animation–the imagined Point Dume home in Malibu offers modern architecture, panoramic coastline views, and super-suit armaments any comic book fan or real estate aficionado wouldn’t want to miss.
What does a superhero, scientist and military industrialist like Stark need in a house? His home serves a host of needs, so it has to be sizable. In addition housing his workshop, roaming robots and crime-fighting gear, Tony also needs enough space to entertain the occasional party and still have room for a spa to soothe aching muscles while recovering from his most recent crime-fighting feat.
While you can’t own Stark’s CGI-created address, here are a few real-life listings on the market that might fit Iron Man or a major Marvel fan just as well. Just don’t pick a fight with any terrorists.
