Tour The Late Jack Lemmon's Sun-Kissed Malibu Beach House Listed For $13.5 Million — Photos
The late Jack Lemmon's former home in Malibu, Calif., hit the market for $13.5 million.
The stunning abode — which was designed and built to satisfy the beloved actor's desires — was filled with happy memories of Lemmon and his family, as he bought the property in the Broad Beach celebrity-favored section for his wife and children.
According to the Some Like It Hot star's daughter, Courtney Lemmon: “The house was designed and rebuilt, with my father’s painstaking attention to every detail, in the late 80s." She revealed her parents "created a private sanctuary for us and also a place to entertain friends in a most relaxed way.”
While recounting all the fond memories she had with her father in their former family home, Courtney recalled, per the Top Ten Real Estate Deals, the "countless dinners outside, poker games with the Sinatras from down the road, parties at the Wilders next door, family Thanksgivings with the Matthaus, and many Fourth of July celebrations."
"My father even put a putting green on the dune to practice his golf swing," Courtney remembered of Lemmon, who died in 2001 at 76.
She pointed out that those memories are "indelible and a deeply cherished part of my family's story," before sharing her wishes for the next owner that gets the pleasure of calling the estate their home. "I hope that Broad Beach brings as much joy to the new owners as it did to us,” she said.
"This was our oasis to recharge, and reconnect," Courtney concluded.
