Brooke Burke and David Charvet are putting their stunning Malibu mansion on the rental market for $50,000 a month, and while that seems like a bit much, keep in mind it was listed for $75,000 a month last June!
Charvet purchased the land in 1998 for $1.275 million dollars, and he built a decent sized home for himself, but when he and Burke started dating in 2006 and moved in together, the couple completely remodeled the pad. The couple did list the home for sale for $12.5 million in 2011, but there weren't any interested buyers, so they decided to hang on to it. After checking out the photos, we can see why!
They nicknamed the five bedroom, five bathroom home Chateau Charvet, and it has 6,769 square feet of living space. Though Realtor.com lists the lot size as 3.5 acres, that seems a bit much, and two other real estate sites list the lot size as 38,332 square feet, which comes out to a more plausible .8 acres of land.
According to listing information, "The residence features antique hand plastered walls, hand carved limestone and walnut flooring, imported French fireplaces, hand sculpted doors, and custom ceiling details throughout." There's a pool that would make any Californian drool, and the grounds boast a 200 bush rose garden, an orchard and a cabana. In addition to a media room and a wood paneled office, there is a 4,000 bottle wine cellar with Chateau Margaux barrels inset in the wall ... sounds like the perfect place to entertain!
The house is in the private Serra Retreat, which boasts famous neighbors like James Cameron and Camille Grammer.
