Jason Statham, the action star in movies like “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, is listing his swanky Californian home for $AU 29.1 million ($US19.95 million).
Mr. Statham, a British actor known for his tough-guy roles, bought the property for about $US10.6 million in 2009, property records show.
The recently renovated, open-plan home set on 365sq m has Belgian oak floors, Burmese teak decks, radiant heated floors and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that frame the views of “Old Joe’s,” a popular surf spot, according to the listing.
Located in Malibu in a gated beachfront community known as a celebrity haven, the property has a distinctive black cedar shingle facade and a retro, midcentury modern-inspired interior.
There are also three bedrooms, a large dining room with wood shelving, a brick fireplace framed with an log display feature and a large kitchen with grey oak cabinetry.
Outside, the home has an outdoor patio, a jacuzzi, a seating nook and direct access to the beach. There is also a one-bedroom guesthouse.
Mr. Statham, 52, has had a decorated career as an action movie star in Hollywood for a number of decades.
He burst on the scene in 1998 in the British crime comedy Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The film was then adaptated for American audiences in 2000 under the title “Crank” where Statham starred alongside Brad Pitt.
He is most recognised for his roles in the Transporter movie franchise, “The Italian Job,”, and “Crank”.
Most recently, he has starred alongside some of Hollywood’s action elite in “The Expendables.”, and with Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson in “The Fast and the Furious” films.
In 2016, he reportedly sold his Hollywood compound for $9.2 million, a property he purchased back in 2011 for $7.325 million, public records show.
