While blockbuster stars like Mel Gibson may get the most attention for living along the beach in Malibu, it seems there is also room for the occasional sitcom star. Due to some secretive negotiations, it has only recently been reported that former Friends star Matthew Perry purchased a beachfront home in the famous neighborhood two years ago, for around $12 million. The four-bedroom home sits so close to the water that at high tide, the ocean actually rushes underneath the cantilevered structure.

The actor will be playing Oscar Madison in a TV remake of “The Odd Couple,” debuting February 19, which he also co-wrote and produced. Oscar’s the messy one, but the Pier House looks pretty neat.
15 | Whether Perry is hosting a very special Thanksgiving episode or just a private Friends reunion, this dining table with hairpin legs and matching bench is the perfect setting.
The house is situated on 2.5 acres with a garden area suitable for outdoor entertaining, a fire pit next to the pool and a sound system inside and outside the home.
9 | With a home that’s so close to the ocean, the crashing waves act as a built in white noise machine, perfect for unwinding from a day on set or even recovering from a phone call with Janice.
The actor received $1.85 million less than he was asking for the home, which has sliding glass walls and a pool overlooking Malibu Pier.
2 | Gated off from the road, guests have to come in through a gate and courtyard before even getting to the front door. But once inside the home, you have to ask: could this entry BE any more spectacular? Sitting right on the ocean, visitors get views from any angle along with the ocean sounds and smells that create a luxurious climate all around.

Perry, best known as Chandler on “Friends,” also appeared on “The West Wing” and has spoken out about criminal treatment of people with alcohol and drug-abuse issues.
5 | Chandler’s third nipple may have been just as superfluous as the other two, but the kitchen island in this home has more than one use. The expansive countertop is perfect for preparing fresh seafood while built in storage can hold kitchen utensils, cookbooks, or just a few carefully chosen seashells.

UPDATE: Matthew Perry has sold his Malibu beach house for $10.65 million, considerably less than the $12.5 million he originally asked in a listing that dates back to May 2014. He listed the home for even more than that — $13.5 million — in 2011, but didn’t find a buyer. The “Friends” star paid $6.55 million for the home in 2005.
11 | Monica would certainly appreciate the home’s gleaming white baths, letting the Pacific sunlight up every spotless surface.
12 | Most would certainly consider these bedroom views of the Pacific as a step up from balcony views of Ugly Naked Guy, trading exposed ceiling beams for exposed man parts.
The 5,500-square-foot home has 4 bedrooms and 6 baths, including his-and-her bathrooms off the master bedroom, where a window seat offers stunning ocean views. Other amenities include a home theater, game room and designer kitchen.
The listing is held by Greg Holcomb and Mark Rutstein of Partners Trust.
