There’s a reason why Carbon Beach is nicknamed Billionaire’s Beach. The prized sandbar off the Pacific Coast highway in Malibu regularly hits $20 million in sales north and sometimes record-breaking deals.
Hotelier Peter Morton set a Los Angeles County record by demolishing his Carbon Beach residence for $110 million in 2018. Last year, a modern mansion owned by late philanthropist Eli Broad was traded for $51.65 million.
Michael Lambert, a media executive who has worked at 20th Century Fox and HBO, is the latest to sell movies in the swanky area. Records show he had just passed a Mediterranean-style mansion with 60 feet of beachfront for $19.55 million. The sale is a three-year effort by Lambert, who first offered it for sale for $23.75 million in 2019.
The buyer, The Times has confirmed, is real estate investor Robert Rivani, president of commercial real estate company Black Lion. Rivani said he plans to renovate and turn over the property.
