A home once owned by Judy Garland is for sale, and it’s not in Kansas

The gorgeous Malibu beach house is yours for $3.7 million

An idyllic Malibu beach house formerly owned by singing sensation Judy Garland has come on the market for a cool $3.7 million (approximately £2.8 million).

The Wizard of Oz star bought the place in 1947 while married Vincente Minnelli. There have been significant changes since Judy resided there though; in fact it was completely rebuilt in 2013, so it looks a bit different to when she owned it!

The 1,728 sq ft property is set over three floors and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It has a steep-pitched roof, vaulted ceilings and white walls and ceilings throughout which all combine to create a feeling of spaciousness. The living room has 10 ft high accordion doors that open seamlessly on to an expansive wrap-around wooden deck.

And beyond that, nothing but unspoiled panoramic views across the Pacific Ocean. That’s right, the property sits directly on the beachfront, with direct access to a wet sandy beach.
