Celebrity property watchers can now ogle at yet another star-studded luxury home in Malibu. Former Baywatch actor David Charvet and his fiancé Brooke Burke of Dancing With The Stars fame are selling their Malibu home, the Chateau Charvet, for $12.5 million. If that seems to steep a price to pay, interested parties have another option: to rent the property at a whopping $75,000 a month.
The Chateau Charvet boasts of French-style architecture. The luxury mansion occupies an L-shaped strip of two acres. Charvet purchased the property back in 1998 for $1.275 million, and the two-storey house was built before 2006, which was when Charvet and Burke started dating. Later, the couple carried out renovations on the 6,769-square-foot home. Charvet and Burke have been residing here with their four kids. Among the most attractive features of the Chateau Charvet are an 18th-century fountain, an infinity swimming pool and a spa. Gas lamps add a touch of quaint elegance to this luxury home.
As you step inside, prepare to be stunned by the French fireplaces. The home has a wine cellar and a hidden screening room. The family rooms have an open plan. Plus, Burke even has a closet to house her extra, off-season outfits. Luxury rentals are rarely this grand.
If you need more reason to buy or rent this star-studded home, you would be interested to know that the Chateau Charvet is located on Sierra Retreat, a private haunt of America’s biggest celebrities. Anyone living at the Charvet home would soon be rubbing shoulders with the likes of film producer James Cameron and Real Housewives actor Camille Grammer.
