Shaun White founder a buyer to slide into his California home.
The three-time Olympic gold medalist, 34, has sold his picturesque, gated Malibu estate for $8 million, the Los Angeles Times reports. The home was first listed for $12.75 million in June 2019, before the price was dropped to $10.995 million in January 2020. The final sale price is $4.75 million less than the original asking price, and $2.75 million less than White paid for the property in 2016.
The 2,164-square-foot sunny, beachfront home is far removed from the icy environments that served as the settings for the Winter Olympian’s record-breaking snowboarding career.
Situated on a bluff top, the house was first built in 1948 and has been “meticulously remodeled with the utmost attention to detail,” according to the original listing, which was handled by Aaron Kirman, star of the CNBC reality series Listing Impossible.
Inside, the residence features three bedrooms and two bathrooms, encompassed in an open-concept plan that boasts hardwood floors. Walls of windows shed light on large dining and living areas, with a fireplace also providing a cozy hangout space.
A breakfast nook is nestled inside the gourmet kitchen, where plenty of counter space and professional-level appliances create a comfortable setting to cook or hang out.
Perhaps the most striking perk of the property is its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, located just steps away. The outdoor areas include a covered terrace with a grilling area, and a private in-ground pool surrounded by sprawling lawns.

In December 2019, White sold another home — the property beside the one he most recently sold. According to Variety, White sold the nearby, larger house for $11.8 million. He had purchased the place six years prior from Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss for just under $9 million, and had later rented it to celebs including singer Frank Ocean.
Also an accomplished skateboarder, White — who is currently dating actress Nina Dobrev — was named the Best Male Athlete of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games after he turned in an impressive performance in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and nabbed a record-breaking third Olympic gold medal in the men’s halfpipe.
