Set atop a large promontory in Malibu Canyon, CA, this chromed-out boxcar design by architect Ed Niles serves up views of the Santa Monica Mountains and beyond.
Known as the Henman House, the glass-and-steel masterpiece has become somewhat of an architectural icon in Malibu over the years, making cameo appearances in various films and television shows—with its celebrity status extending as far as a Britney Spears’ music video.
Built in 1993, the distinctive structure lives up to its pop-star status with a 5,904-square-foot floor plan that features open spaces, soaring glass and polished modern interiors.
In addition to the rows of windows in its outside walls, the Henman House’s sunlit spaces are brightened by uniquely designed skylights that run through the center of the home.
Amenities befitting rock star royalty include an underground studio, two-sided fireplaces, and an underground garage.
Outside, the luxury experience extends to a large guest house, a private helipad and a lap pool pointing out toward the coast.
The home last changed hands in 2003 for just $3.5 million, according to Curbed. However, you will need a bit more than that now, if you’re interested. After hitting the market in May 2013 for $7.995 million, the Henman House has seen an uptick in price of nearly $1.2 million. Malibu’s architectural wonder currently lists for $9.2 million.
Marc Silver of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
