Jason Statham Lives in a Surprisingly Low-Key House and Now It Could Be Yours

There aren’t many Hollywood stars as badass as Jason Statham. The action movie actor has made a name for himself by being tough and kicking bad guys’ butts over a career that has spanned nearly three decades. With the Machiavellian attitude typical of the characters he plays on screen, you would expect his house to be a brooding brutalist man cave with knives and guns hanging on the walls in place of artwork. But the down-to-earth actor actually calls an oceanside, zenful retreat home — and now it could be yours.

Williams & Williams Estates Group

Dubbed Black House, Statham’s home is currently up for sale and asking just under $20 million. It’s been his place to unwind after a day on set since 2009. Decked out in a stylish combo of mid-century modern meets cool California vibes, Black House is surprisingly bright and airy on the inside. It’s the outside that gives the home its name. 

Located near the end of Malibu Colony Road, the home is as close to the ocean as you can get. In order to protect it from the harsh salt air, the home is clad in black cedar shingles — giving it the moniker Black House. The outside of the residence has a beachy minimalist vibe thanks to the black shingles and the Burmese teak wood used on the decks. This dark exterior is a big contrast from the bright finishes used on the interior.

Relaxation was the driving force for the design of this oceanside retreat. The soothing tones of the color palette are a reflection of the sands of the home’s private beach. Furnishings are all about comfort, with plush upholstered seating, fluffy area rugs, and even a few (stylish) bean bag chairs scattered throughout the home.

The finishes all speak to the creation of a zenful space. Flooring is light Belgian oak, walls of glass capture calming ocean views, and doors can be opened to let in fresh breezes. Natural tones were used throughout, like the chocolate brown cabinetry in the kitchen, creamy off-white paint on the walls, and the rattan seating in the dining room. Even though the interior design of Black House speaks to simplicity, the home is still a luxury escape worthy of the $19,950,000 price tag.

Spreading out over 3,909 square-feet, Black House is made up of a Bulthaup kitchen, three bedroom suites, several lounge spaces, an office, and a guest house connected to the main house by a patio complete with its own Jacuzzi. 

One of the most impressive areas of the home is the main deck which faces the water. Glass walls were installed rather than standard deck railings. This allows for unobstructed views of the ocean when kicking back in the lounge chairs. A door in the wall leads down to the home’s private beach – a bonus feature that is one of the best parts of the property. 

Overall, Black House is a perfect example of how simplicity can be luxurious. If you want those relaxing California beach vibes for your own home, it’s easier to pull off than you think. You don’t need Jason Statham money to cultivate a zenful abode, you just need to know where to shop. Places like offer pieces that are similar to the high-end furnishings at much better prices. Start with a blank slate of light wood veneer floors and creamy off-white walls. A cushy upholstered sofa, a few mid-century modern-inspired armchairs, and a Safavieh shag rug create the laidback look found in the sitting area of Black House. Set up a music listening area to add another level of zen and you’ve got yourself the perfect space to unwind after a hectic day of fighting off bad guys … or filing papers, whichever your job entails. 

23330 Malibu Colony is currently listed by Williams & Williams Estates Group.

This Legendary Golf Pro’s Colorado Ranch Could Be Yours for $50,000,000
greg norman seven lakes ranch for sale 3

Most people know that your dollar goes further in depending on what part of the county you’re in. So, it’s interesting to take a look at how much house you can get for your money depending on where you’re shopping. $50,000,000 is definitely a hefty price tag, but in crowded Beverly Hills, that "only" gets you one acre — barely enough space for the tennis court, swimming pool, and guest house. Why not invest that money more wisely. Like, say, a secluded property of 11,600 acres complete with 2 miles of riverfront, several lakes and ponds, a working ranch with 150 head of cattle, endless trails for horseback riding (horses included), and a sporting clay course. All that and we haven’t even gotten to the house yet.

Pro golfer Greg Norman and his wife, Kirsten Kutner, have put their property Seven Lakes Ranch on the market for a sweet $50,000,000. Seven Lakes is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true. Located in Meeker, Colorado, the property offers pristine wilderness, stunning views, and countless opportunities for exploring, hunting, fishing, and hiking.

Go Ahead Australia, Do Your Worst. Elemental House is Ready
elemental house australia gallery profile 6

Australia is a wild country filled with deadly creatures of every sort and weather that’s just as dangerous. From harsh sun to fierce winds to blazing bushfires, it’s a challenging place to live. But to build your home high up on a ridge, boldly facing the elements head-on seems crazy, and something only a true Australian would attempt. Not only did architect Ben Callery take on this challenge, he created a weekend retreat so stylish we would gladly stare down a wildfire for the chance at a stay.

Located in High Camp, a small town in the Shire of Mitchell, Victoria, Elemental House was built as a small weekend retreat for the owners. Once Callery visited the site himself, he realized that the owners’ original vision would not hold up to the harsh conditions. They needed a structure that was fire-resistant while also withstanding category N3 prevailing winds (roughly 90 mph). Luckily, Callery knew just what to do, designing a home that is just as strong as it is eye-catching.

Embrace Your Inner Minimalist in Long Island’s East Lake House
east lake house robert young architects gallery profile 12

In the Northeast, the coastal vacation home has long had a distinct style defined by the country’s most prominent families (think the Kennedy Compound in Cape Cod). Cedar shingle clad mansions, sprawling out along expansive grounds, carefully positioned to frame stunning ocean views are all typical of the style. Inside, these homes are decked out in coastal decor with bright whites balanced by navy blues and accented with wicker and driftwood to create an upscale, shabby-chic look. That look, however, has become a dated style indicative of behind-the-times stuffiness. Robert Young Architects designed a new summertime retreat to be a minimalist escape that feels at one with its natural surroundings while acting as a model for a new wave of coastal vacation homes. The result is East Lake House.
