Imagine that you are an up and coming filmmaker on the cusp of superstardom, and you have the opportunity to rent Steven Spielberg's house. You'd jump at the chance right? You'd totally go for that… if you had the $125,000 per month it would take. Steven Spielberg's rise to filmmaking fame has been well chronicled. He began making short films when he was eleven, using his father's video camera to earn his Boy Scout photography merit badge. He shot his first independent feature when he was sixteen, and then decided to focus on attending film school. He was rejected from the University of Southern California Department of Film twice, and went on to attend the University of California – Long Beach, instead. He began working as an unpaid intern in the editing department at Universal Studios while he was still a student. While working at Universal, he made the short film, "Amblin", and the project caught the attention of Sidney Sheinberg, who was the Vice-President of Universal TV. Spielberg was invited to direct various television episodes, and was then shifted over to film work. He was a professional director by age 23, and has enjoyed an unprecedented string of blockbusters since then. Some of his most popular works include, "Jaws", "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", "Raiders of the Lost Ark", "The Color Purple", "Empire of the Sun", "Always", "Jurassic Park", "Schindler's List", "Saving Private Ryan", "Minority Report", "Munich", and "The Adventures of Tintin". All of that success has made him very wealthy, and he owns multiple properties, including the $125,000 per month beach house he is renting out this summer.
Steven Spielberg's house is 7,237 square feet and contains seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. It's not your ordinary beach house. The house, which is located in Malibu, just steps from the water, also has its own two bedroom guest house with an additional living space that can be used for just about anything. Steven Spielberg's house is two stories tall and features a massive master suite, massage room, and library. There are also multiple fireplaces, a private movie theater, and a multi-car garage. Outside of Steven Spielberg's house there is a courtyard, swimming pool, and spa. It's a pretty gorgeous property, and says a lot about the level of success that this former Boy Scout was able to achieve. Now let's see whether some future director with stars in his eyes snags it for the summer.
