Rod Stewart‘s beachfront house in Malibu is now up for sale for $49.5 million.
Designed by architect Harry Gesner, who sketched out the concept from an unusual location and resembles a cresting wave. The rocker’s former “Wave House” has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, huge windows, and wraparound decks that offer stunning views of the California coast.
Gesner explained this in the book Houses of the Sundown Sea saying:
“I camped out on the spot where I would plan the house.
“I spent two days surfing the break, all the time designing all aspects of the house in my head. The cliffs and sand. The views and prevailing wind. The quarter mile of beach and surf. I checked out every point of view. Then I took my old twelve-foot balsa board, but no wet suit (they hadn’t been invented yet), and a grease pencil. I paddled out through the break turned the board to the beach and sketched the Wave house on the face of the board.”
Stewart bought the house in the ’70s and sold it to Warner and Reprise Records CEO Mo Ostin in 1987, according to Business Insider. A year after Ostin’s passing in 2022, his estate has put up the house for sale.
On the other hand, Stewart also recently placed his 28,500-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion on the market for $70 million.
Meanwhile, the singer will be performing in the U.K. this summer with support from Boy George and Culture Club, then proceed to the U.S. for an 18-date tour kicking off on July 29 in Sparks, Nevada.
