French singer and composer Sébastien Izambard of the pop-opera quartet Il Divo has relisted a compound in Malibu at $12.95 million. He put the house on the market last year for $15.9 million.
Set on four-plus acres above Zuma Beach, the five-bedroom main house brings a contemporary design twist to the farmhouse style. The whitewashed home was built in 1979 and renovated by Burdge & Associates during Izambard’s ownership. The tenor bought the house in 2011 for $4 million.
The living room has gothic-style windows that take in garden and ocean views. Details include cathedral ceilings, oak floors and skylights.
Including the one-bedroom guesthouse and a two-bedroom barn, there are eight bedrooms and six bathrooms in more than 7,800 square feet of space. The barn has a vintage vibe with surfboard accent pieces, sets of bunk beds and a corrugated metal-lined shower.
