The house that served as the couple’s coastal retreat is 400 square meters and offers spectacular views from Broad Beach to Point Dume.

Malik, who has co-authored several major hits including Moves like Jagger from the group Maroon 5 and Stereo Hearts of the band Gym Class Heroes, paid 8.35 million dollars for the property in September 2020. According to Malik himself, he and his wife bought the property as an investment and made a complete reform, including the entire electricity system and plumbing. Now the house has come out for sale in Coldwell Banker Realty for 16.9 million euros.
