Mega-celebs Beyonce and Jay Z recently recently set the record for purchasing the most expensive home in California. The $200 million, 40,000 s.f. designed by Tadao Ando, a Japanese master architect, shatters Marc Andreessen’s former record in California, set with his $177 million purchase in 2021, also in Malibu.
The house was built by art collector William Bell Jr. and his wife Maria heir to a soap opera fortune as the son of the creators of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. The modern mansion utilized more than 7,645 cubic yards of environmentally friendly pervious concrete to create and took over 15 years to complete.
The property is located on the 27000 block of Pacific Coast Highway.
Super star realtor Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency represented both buyer and seller.
