And Malibu sets yet another record … for yet another stratospheric house sale price.

But this time … a house on Billionaire’s Beach did not get snapped up by Larry Ellison … although he owns houses on either side.

A natural gas industry billionaire named Michael S. Smith and his wife, Iris Smith, have just paid 110 million dollars for a house on Billionaire’s beach.

That would be the most expensive home sale ever for Los Angeles County.

The seller … Peter Morton … who built the Hard Rock Cafe and Hotel empire.

The house is across the street from the Cafe De Lux … the old Thai Dishes center.

The Malibu sale is expected to close today … reports the L-A Times.

Two 85-million-dollar sales have also closed in the last year and a half.
