Money never sleeps: Leonardo Dicaprio makes nearly £7m profit on his seven-bedroom Malibu beach house

The Wolf of Wall Street star, Leonardo Dicaprio has secured the sale of his Malibu beach house - for £10.4 million! That's a staggering £7m more than he bought it for in 2002

If you haven’t heard about Leonardo Dicaprio’s latest film you soon will. In The Wolf of Wall Street Leo plays Jordan Belfort, a financial trader who makes serious cash on the New York Stock Exchange.

The film has been met with controversy for its glorified portrayal of greed.

So imagine our surprise when we heard that the Oscar-nominated actor has just made a packet on the sale of his latest property. Talk about life imitating art!

Old money bags Dicaprio has just off-loaded his Malibu mansion and made a cool £7 million profit in the process.

The actor sold the luxurious property for £10.4 million, having bought it for only £3.4 million back in 2002 (according to website, Zillow).

However, he had to come down on his original price of £13.8 million to secure the sale.

The beautiful ocean-front home features seven bedrooms, a private beach, a hot tub, spa, a large garden and two private guesthouses.

With a New England-inspired exterior and a smart minimalist interior, the plush beach house certainly has the wow factor.

Over on the east coast, if you want a (slightly) more affordable way to imagine life with Leo,
then why not consider purchasing the luxury Manhattan penthouse which features in The Wolf of Wall Street?

The 2,500 square foot apartment boasts three bedrooms, a sleek open-plan layout and breathtaking views across the city.

But before you pack your bags, be mindful that the property is on the market for a cool £3.9 million. Ok, so even that is way out of our price range then!
