A clifftop property along the ocean edge of Point Dume was just purchased by Mel Gibson’s ex-wife, Robyn Moore, for $17.5 million. The Cape Cod-style home was designed by well-known local architect Doug Burdge, with “spectacular Zuma Beach and whitewater views,” according to Variety.

The home’s previous owner was Wendy Miller Hughes, the ex-wife of billionaire Public Storage heir B. Wayne Hughes Jr.

The one-acre estate is walled and gated for privacy, with a detached guest house and a long outdoor stairway down to the beach. Variety reported that, according to tax records, the two-story house is about 3,800 square feet.

This acquisition is just the latest in Moore’s Malibu real estate portfolio. In 2014, she paid $18 million for a mansion on Broad Beach. A third property in the Malibu area that she owned, a ranch-style compound in the Santa Monica Mountains, burned in the 2018 Woolsey Fire and was sold earlier this year.

Moore had worked as an Australian public speaker, voice-over artist and television personality. She was married to Mel Gibson for 30 years, and is the mother of their seven adult children. The 60-year-old’s 2011 divorce from Gibson was reportedly worth up to $425 million.
