Moguls make a deal in Malibu
Producer Jerry Weintraub has sold his longtime Malibu compound, and the paper trail leads to apparel mogul Serge Azria as the buyer.
Ownership of the 7-acre spread transferred early this year, but public records do not include a sales price. The beachfront/bluff-top compound had been listed at $42.5 million to $75 million over a span of six years.
Beyond its panoramic ocean views, the lot boasts a road down to the beach should the new owner want to use a golf cart rather than walk. But that’s just for starters. There’s the main house, two guesthouses, a guardhouse, video security, two barns/stables, a riding ring, a gym, a swimming pool and a tennis court. The 11,810 square feet of living space includes seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.
Weintraub, 75, produced such hits as the “Karate Kid” and “Ocean’s” movies. Azria, 64, owns the Joie, Equipment and Current/Elliott fashion lines, among others, serving in such roles as chief executive and creative director.
