Kid Rock's Balinese Paradise (above)
Since 2006, this tropical enclave is where Kid Rock and his son, Robert, Jr., have come to kick back - well, maybe with one of his Bad Ass Beers, walk down to the beach and get inspiration for writing music and decompress from exhausting musical tours. Located in Malibu’s residential community of Point Dume, this 8,305 square foot, open and airy serene residence is made up of dark hand-carved wooden columns, beams and doors that bring an earthiness to the sleek architecture and pristine white walled background. Large sweeps of glass open to the lanai, balconies and tropical landscape with views of the pool and guest house situated across the lawn. Inside, there are five bedrooms, five full baths, a family-media room and gym. The large chef’s kitchen and dining room are perfect for entertaining and the formal living room can be turned into a screening room for multiple guests. In keeping with the exclusivity of Point Dume, the beach maintains its privacy through keyed access.
Kid Rock’s not so “Redneck Paradise” in Malibu is now on the market, priced at $13.45 million.

The Harvey Mudd Estate
Designed by architect Elmer Grey in 1922, this gracious home is sited on an acre in the well-known zip code of 90210 with swimming pool, aviary and extensive gardens. The grand estate has been home to notables such as Charles Boldt of Mason jar fortune, philanthropists Harvey and Mildred Mudd, Harry S. Rothschild of Rothschild Oil, Academy and Emmy Award winning actors and a well-known film producer. It was purchased in 2003 by its current owner, who set about a three-year total restoration and at the same time expanding its square footage to almost double the original 6,000 square feet. Now with almost 11,000 square feet, it has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a conservatory and wine cellar with tasting room. Outstanding features are in the artful use of wood in carved stair railings, coffered ceilings, raised paneling, and inlaid floors.
