Charlize Theron's Home: Putting Her Past Behind Her for a $3 Million Profit

By on May 4, 2012 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Charlize Theron is one that rare type of actress with gorgeous looks, a stellar career, and a noticeably down-to-earth personality.  She has multiple high profile movies coming out this year, including "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Prometheus".  After a harrowing childhood in South Africa, she relocated to the United States, and took advantage of every opportunity that came her way.  She is highly sought after as an actress and model, and directors and other actors often list her as one of their favorite parts of the projects on which they work.  She is, in essence, the cool, popular girl that hangs out with both the geeks and the jocks, seemingly unaware of their adoration.  Until recently, she has also always been in a relationship.  A collective gasp went up in Hollywood when she, and her boyfriend of nine years, Stuart Townsend, called it quits.  They were considered one of the more stable relationships in Tinseltown.  However, this gasp was quickly redirected when it became clear that their separation would mean a couple of prime pieces of real estate were going to become available.  The Oscar-winning actress owned a few properties with her former beau, and in typical post-relationship fashion, selling them off so that she could move on physically and emotionally, became a top priority.  Her Malibu cottage was one of the first homes to go.

She purchased the 2,095 square foot, three-bedroom, three and half-bath house, to serve as a beachfront getaway, in 2003.  The home, which is nothing particularly special on the outside, is quite attractive on the inside, and features high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, a massive kitchen, a wrap-around terrace, and stunning views of the nearby ocean and beach.  Purchased for $3.495 million, it sold in 2011 to Ryan Murphy of "Glee" fame, for just over $6.5 million.  As not much had changed about the property since Ms. Theron's original purchase, one can only assume that the price increase was due to the fact that the rare beauty had lived there.
