It’s just not right that a devious criminal can afford one of Malibu’s most spectacular oceanfront homes. At least that was what viewers saw in the 1995 movie, Heat. The home, used in the movie as the residence of a criminal mastermind played by Robert De Niro, is now for sale. Al Pacino also starred in the film as a Los Angeles police detective who tracks down and kills the De Niro character, after several plot turns and dramatic shootouts.
While the movie is fiction, the Malibu location is real and spectacular and one of Southern California’s best neighborhoods, Malibu Cove Colony, with an eclectic mix of guard-gated oceanfront homes. One of the most interesting and expensive homes in the neighborhood, which was used as the De Niro home in Heat, is for sale at $21 million.
