The statuesque blond who starred in “Splash” and “Blade Runner,” Daryl Hannah, known for her environmental and animal rights activism is selling her hidden hippie style complex back in the hillsides of Malibu. This area is filled with the drama of Mother Nature and Hanna added to the beauty of the landscape with tweaks to the already pristine area.
For a mere $4,995,000 you can purchase your own little slice of secluded paradise replete with a 1927 river-stone hunting cabin and the second, a corrugated-metal clad building that once was a nursery. While the homes are small, they’re quaint and peaceful looking, with a porch for viewing the great outdoors and planters hanging on the porch of the metal-clad building and a pristine moss deck adding to the appearance to the stone hunting lodge.
The river-stone hunting lodge has radiant heat flooring, a Japanese soaking tub and an indoor/outdoor shower. The houses are not the feature here, however. Even though they do have some very interesting extras, the real star of this show is the land and the landscaping. There are several gardens scattered throughout the 17.6 acre hideaway. Some include a native garden, a vegetable garden and an exotic garden. There’s also a vineyard and an orchard so you’re never too far from succulent fresh fruit on a hot afternoon.
The acreage came through two purchases. The first in early 2000s for $550,000 brought 7.6 acres and the second purchase for $775,000 made Ms. Hannah the proud owner of the 10 acres, in 2001. Those purchases were for the land, the lodge and what was once a nursery—which explains all the gardens and landscaping.
The property is solar powered, which is only right, considering Ms. Hannah’s passion for the environment. There’s a live oak grove with a teepee in the middle. However, the teepee may be going with Ms. Hannah to her other home in Colorado. There’s something for everyone who loves the peaceful outdoors, with streams and waterfalls, a palm grove, pastureland and an abundance of wildlife, this is one of the few celebrity homes isn’t for the image but demonstrates true tranquility.
