Avril Lavigne's Malibu Retreat on the Market for $12M

The Malibu home of Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne is for sale this Avril. The private little compound — very comfortable, and very manageable — spans .63 acres of bluff-top land on the Eastern side of the PCH.

The house dates to 1968, and slots neatly as a late midcentury single-level. The primary entrance is situated at the end of a romantically long front walk; a garage repurposed as a guest house sits perpendicular to the main house.

Inside, the house is dominated by the great room, an enormous open-concept space with an ocean side wall of glass and a marvelously rustic unfinished vaulted ceiling with exposed iron; the acoustics, one imagines, are superb, and the gratifying sonic possibilities of plugging a telecaster into a vintage 50-watt fender at full throttle immediately present themselves. Other musicians take note. Hardwood floors, spotlights, a fireplace and built-ins are also spotted in this catch-all space, which incorporates a kitchen, living room, dining room and creative workspace, all while appearing entirely uncrowded.

The primary bedroom — there are four bedrooms and four baths throughout the property — is a gem. The ceiling design gets a touch of reverb in this room, which opens to a private patio with a Johnny-come-lately sauna discreetly positioned against a hedge. Continuing out the sliding glass door ocean-ward is a hardwood sun lounge; a pool and a few bits of lawn round out the back 40, all wedged between the formidable banks of privacy hedge on either side.
