Celebrity Homes: Jason Statham’s Malibu Beach House Is Pure Bliss

With homes perched high on the bluff overlooking miles of sandy Pacific shores, Malibu is well known for its blissful beaches and fantastic surf. This is what spoke to British actor Jason Statham, who decided to make the investment and purchase his very own slice of Malibu life.

He chose a run-down beach house and undertook a full renovation from the ground up. Initially drawn to the beauty of the ocean, he wanted his renovated abode to connect to the sea and be a constant reminder of the power of nature.

The new layout is open and inviting, but Statham wanted to keep the innate connection to nature that he loved about Malibu homes. In an interview with Architectural Digest, he shared his vision to turn an old surf shack into a cozy, chic, and serene living space. He chose a Scandi, laid-back interior styling for the home – lending each space a cool, calm and inviting ambience.

It’s known as “the Black House” due to the onyx-coloured cedar shingles on the exterior. The black exterior with copper gutters gone green from the salt gives it certain sleekness. As someone who notices details in his surroundings, Statham took cues on materiality from diverse buildings and homes, namely those of Richard Neutra. “I wanted to retain what was there before but make it look more robust,” says the actor.

And that he most certainly did. A once tired old beach home was totally reconstructed into a blissful two-story oceanfront retreat.

Inside, designer-done interiors include a living room with a brick fireplace, a minimalist-vibe kitchen, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Decking and an in-ground spa fill the space between the main house and guesthouse. At the rear, a gated patio descends to the sandy beach.

When arranging furniture and accoutrements, Statham opted for practicality over contrived curation. For him, comfort reigns. “I wanted to come in off the beach and flop down in my shorts—nice and easy.” The immense custom sofa enveloping the beach-facing room perfectly embodies this desire; it’s his favorite place to lie and take in nature’s “beautiful spectrum of colours and moods.”
