Fox Sports broadcaster Charissa Thompson has trimmed the price of her beach house in Malibu after a few weeks on the market, from $3 million to $2.9 million.
She bought the fully renovated residence in 2016 for $2.5 million, and then spiffed it up even more—especially the beach deck on the first level.
Where once there was only a hot tub, Thompson added a fire pit, suspended TV, Sonos sound system, built-ins, and electrical wiring to facilitate ambient lighting.
There’s also an extra incentive for buyers: All the furniture comes with the house.
Buyers won’t have to worry about decorating the home or moving furniture, says listing agentMitch Hagerman of Coldwell Banker.
“It’s an incredible home for the price,” he adds. “You don’t often find homes that are this tasteful and complete for under $3 million in Malibu.”
A sub-$3 million price usually indicates structural issues or dated interiors, but that isn’t the case here, he explains.
Although Thompson loves the house, there’s no yard for her two big dogs, Hagerman says. Thompson is ready to give up the beach life for a place that’s more pet-friendly.
The three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home is located right on California’s scenic Pacific Coast Highway, making the location ideal for both vacationers and permanent residents.
But with the beachfront home featuring the fabulous entertaining deck and two balconies overlooking the sea, among many other luxe amenities, setting out on the PCH to socialize might be unnecessary.
The exterior of the three-story, 1,646-square-foot home is Cape Cod, but the interior has a Moroccan aesthetic, seen in the colorful tiles accenting the staircase, kitchen backsplash, bathrooms, and fireplaces. Fleetwood walls and doors of glass are used throughout.
The chef’s kitchen has Viking appliances, wine storage, a walk-in pantry, and even a television, which makes sense for someone in the biz.
Thompson is currently hosting “Fox NFL Kickoff” and is the Sunday game-break anchor for the NFL on Fox.
