For this post I'd like to share Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's beautiful oceanfront home in Malibu, California that he picked up for a solid $25 million last summer. The fitting location for baller Paul Allen is Carbon Beach, also known as "Billionaires Beach". This prime strip of Californian coast line gets its' name from its ultra-rich residents and the fact that property here costs a minimum of $10-$15 million. Some of Allen's weathly neighbors include record exec David Geffen of Geffen Records and former Walt Disney chairman and CEO of Dream Works Jeffrey Katzenberg. Oracle CEO and third richest American Larry Ellison is said to own several pieces of property on Carbon beach. Now onto Paul Allen's modern white-walled and glass beach house.

Listed for $29.5 million but bought by Allen for $25 million, it's still pocket change for the billionaire. The home is around 5,800 square feet with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a gym and a screening room. The front of the house has a fortress-like look at the end of a long driveway and courtyard, to keep his privacy from the always busy Pacific Coast Highway. note the glass front door that offers a view straight through to his pool and the Pacific Ocean. The U-shaped house uses long, straight walls of white or glass that let you view the ocean as much as possible. Dark hardwood flooring is found throughout, with large glass walls dividing rooms and the patio that slide open to change the set-up of the space. The patio by the pool includes a dining area with a outdoor fireplace.
And this is just part of Paul Allen's collection of multi-million dollar properties. He recently dropped another $25 million on a penthouse on New York City's Fifth Avenue which features an expansive rooftop terrace. And yes, all his neighbors are obviously at least multi-millionaires to get a spot in there too.
