Willow Smith is officially a homeowner.

The soon-to-be 20-year-old musician and talk show host paid $3.1 million for a home in Malibu. The contemporary house is just less than 3,000 square feet in size, according to Variety. It sits on 0.37 acres on a hillside on a private street overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home was built in 2011 and meets LEED energy efficiency standards with the help of a greywater recycling system, solar power, and energy efficient appliances. The garage also has a Tesla charging station. The small lot doesn’t have a pool, but does have a patio and a raised deck.

The house has an open floor plan, and the interiors are in line with the modern-style theme — grey hardwood floors, muted furnishings, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The master suite has a fireplace, dual vanities, and a spa-style bathroom.

Smith won’t be too far from her parents and her brother. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have long lived in a huge 150-acre estate in the hills of Calabasas and brother Jaden Smith lives in Hidden Hills.

As far as Malibu properties go, Smith’s new digs are relatively modest. Properties regularly trade in the eight figures in the beachside city and the pandemic hasn’t stopped deals from closing.

In July, Gateway computer co-founder Ted Waitt paid $43.2 million for a 1.3-acre estate in the city. A month later, Compass agent Chris Cortazzo sold his 55,000-square-foot beachfront property for $39 million. [Variety] — Dennis Lynch
