Hard up Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson puts eco-friendly Malibu home on the market for a cool £5m

Actress and Dancing on Ice star Pamela Anderson - who has been plagued by money worries - looks set to make a tidy £4m profit on the Malibu home she bought in 2000

She’s rumoured to be in trouble with the tax man but £4 million should go some way to alleviating Pamela Anderson’s money worries.

The actress, who made her name donning the iconic red Baywatch swimsuit in the 1990s, has listed her eco-friendly Malibu mansion for sale for more than £5 million after snapping it up for just over £1 million back in 2000.

The stunning property was originally built by architect, Phillip Vertoch in the 1950s but has been given an extensive minimalist makeover by Pammy with the help of interior designer, Josh Chryssanthou.

The sun-drenched 2,742 square foot home now features solar panelling and has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sun terrace, sauna, swimming pool and a home cinema as well as stunning views of the Californian countryside.

‘Walking distance from all things Malibu, this finely crafted, teak-sided home is perfect for those wanting to enjoy quiet bach days while being close to the action’.
