It was the dream home of Frank and Barbara Sinatra, and now it’s listed for sale — it could be yours if you have deep pockets.

The couple built their dream home in the early 1990s — on Broad Beach in Malibu — and now the home is on the market for the first time.

With a whopping price tag of $12.9 million.

According to, of all the beautiful homes and retreats Sinatra owned from coast to coast, it seemed that he found his true happy place when he and Barbara visited their good friends Steve and Eydie Gorme in Malibu.

The couple were reportedly enthralled with the peacefulness of the Pacific, the white-sand beach and the prospect of having close friends for neighbours.

And they bought a lot and built their home in 1992.

In addition to it being a restful beach home for Frank, who was still touring until shortly before his death at age 82, they filled the home with family and the most famous names in show business.

In her book, Lady Blue Eyes: My Life With Frank, Barbara fondly describes their life in the beach house and their poker games where jokes and laughter flowed as fast as the food and drinks.

Although the couple also owned homes in Palm Springs and Los Angeles, this was where they chose to renew their vows in 1996 with friends watching from the dunes and speeches from Don Rickles and Bob Newhart.

With Barbara’s death in 2017, her son from a former marriage has put the property on the market.

With 40 feet of beach frontage, the two-storey house has seven bedrooms and nine baths.

The large, unusually well-equipped master suite consists of a lounge, fireplace, sauna and its own hair salon.

In addition to beach-formal living and dining areas, there is also a wood-beamed family room and a wet bar in the dining area which accommodates both indoor and outdoor entertaining.

Possibly his all time favorite residence, which he built at age 75 and enjoyed with wife, family and showbiz friends, Frank Sinatra’s Malibu beach house is for sale, asking $12.9 million.

Listing agents are Leonard Rabinowitz and Jack Friedkin of Hilton & Hyland and Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
