Halle Berry Puts Vacation Home in Canada on the Market

October 20, 2011

Juliet Chung has details on The News Hub.
Actress Halle Berry is asking $1.9 million for her three-bedroom vacation home outside Montreal.
The Academy Award winner bought the gated and forested 63-acre property in Saint-Hippolyte in 2008 for $1.6 million CAD. The exterior is barn-like; the interior is modern and features cathedral ceilings. There’s a screened-in porch off the kitchen.
The privacy of the home appealed to Ms. Berry, says listing agent Liza Kaufman of Sotheby’s International Realty. Ms. Berry is selling because she no longer visits the home, Ms. Kaufman says. The actress was reported to have split from Canadian model Gabriel Aubry in 2010.
Malibu Beachfront Home Goes Up for Auction
A Malibu, Calif., home once listed for $65 million will come up for auction on Sunday. The sale will take place at the home, and has a starting bid of $22 million.
Located on Carbon Beach, the property is owned by Cheryl and William Chadwick, managing director of Chadwick, Saylor & Co., a real-estate investment banking and capital management firm. The home has been on and off the market since 2008.
On about 150 feet of beachfront, the 10,500-square-foot, six-bedroom, 10-bathroom home was completed in 2005. It has a movie theater with stadium seating and a library/study with a large wall-size aquarium. There is also a 75-foot-long pool and spa overlooking the ocean.
Ms. Chadwick says she and her husband, who have three young daughters, spent several years building the home and are now selling because they want to move back to Chicago to be closer to family. “That’s more important to me than living at the beach,” she says. Carol Bird of Westside Estate Agency has the listing. Anthony Fitzgerald of Premiere Estates Auction Co. is handling the auction.
