‘The Bachelor’ Creator Mike Fleiss Lists Modern Mediterranean on Malibu’s Point Dume (EXCLUSIVE)

Reality television tycoon Mike Fleiss set his bluff-top residence on Malibu’s celeb-favored but sadly fire-ravaged Point Dume up for sale at $18.75 million after it was briefly available as a high-end rental in 2017 at $75,000 per month. The “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” creator and executive producer purchased the just-over one-acre spread in early 2016 in what appears to have been an off-market deal valued at $13.8 million. Secured behind gates and partly obscured by a tangled row of tropical plantings with more than 100 feet of prime, south-facing bluff frontage above secluded Dume Cove, the modern-minded, vaguely Mediterranean California ranch-style residence measures in at 4,054-square-feet with four ample bedrooms and 3.5 sleekly appointed bathrooms.

The fastidiously maintained if at-first-glance perfectly ordinary front façade gives way to far less commonplace and decidedly contemporary interiors entered through a frameless glass door set into a wall of glass. Sprawling, combination living, dining, cooking and entertaining space are finished with bone-toned stone floor tiles and drenched in natural light through numerous skylights, glass sliders and super-sized picture windows.
