Mansion Global: ‘Get Out’ and ‘BlacKkKlansman’ Producer Is Buyer of $91 Million Malibu Home
Edward H. Hamm Jr. bought the Paradise Cove property from British videogame designer Jonathan Burton and his ex-wife, Helen Musk
Edward H. Hamm Jr., a movie producer and heir to the Hamm’s Beer fortune, is the buyer of a $91 million mansion in Malibu, Calif., according to people familiar with the transaction. The deal was one of the most expensive home sales in the U.S. last year, records show.
Mr. Hamm produced the 2017 hit psychological horror film “Get Out,” directed by Jordan Peele, and the 2018 Spike Lee crime thriller “BlacKkKlansman.” He couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
The transaction closed in December, the latest in a string of major deals in Malibu. The sellers were British videogame designer Jonathan Burton and his ex-wife, Helen Musk, who first put the property on the market for $125 million in February 2022.
Mr. Burton and Ms. Musk couldn’t be reached for comment.
The roughly 6.6-acre estate is located in the Paradise Cove area, with direct beach access and about 340 feet of ocean frontage. It includes about 17,000 square feet of living space between the main house and a staff quarters. There is also a swimming pool, a tennis court and a miniature golf course.
Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency and Lisa Laughlin of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing.
Hamm’s Beer was first brewed in Minnesota in 1865 by German immigrant Theodore Hamm and soon became a household name thanks in part to its mascot, the Hamm bear, according to the Hamm’s website. The Hamm’s brand is now owned by the beverage company Molson Coors, according to a Molson Coors spokeswoman. Other major deals recently recorded in Malibu include a $100 million purchase of a blufftop property by media billionaire Byron Allen in October 2022, and venture capitalist Marc Andreessen’s purchase of a $177 million home in 2021
