Selling a home for $45 million sounds like an achievement worth celebrating for days, but it's a little different for Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber. The supermodel and her entrepreneurial beau sold their oceanfront Malibu mansion for $45 million ... but they actually bought the property for $50.5 million in 2015, which means they're taking on roughly a $5.5 million loss (not counting any money spent on renovations!). The story goes that the couple originally listed for $60 million and then dropped to $50.5 million, and ultimately settled at $45 million. Which is still a lot of money, but it's a loss nonetheless.
According to W, they also flipped a property in 2015 to the tune of a $6 to $7 million profit, so maybe they can call it all just about even?
Let's be lookie-loos and see what this house (which was, until recently, also home to model offspring Kaia and Presley Gerber) is all about — the 5,254 square foot, four bedroom, five bathroom home sits right on the Pacific Coast Highway and the Pacific Ocean, which makes it the perfect lounging pad.
Open-air living. We can get down with that.
They had us at marble bath!
Pool, glorious pool! We're betting they threw back some shots of Casamigos on that al fresco table.
The kitchen feels reminiscent of a professional restaurant kitchen, with that big overhead hood — actually, scratch that, because you'd have way more room than in a restaurant kitchen, with ocean views to boot.
The home sits on three natural acres, with manicured trees and a private path to the beach.
What a place to call home! Why did you leave, Cindy and Rande, and what's next? The couple may simply move into the $11.63 million jewel they bought in Beverly Hills last year.
