Brent Hocking is ready to leave his Malibu estate behind the guarded enclave of Serra Retreat.

The founder of DeLeón tequila and Virginia Black whiskey is listing his 7,247-square-foot property for $19.9 million, or $2,753 a square foot, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom contemporary home features a home automation system and a kitchen with black leather stone countertops. And outside is a 72-foot-long pool and tennis court.

Hocking purchased the home in 2014 for $5.5 million, according to property records.

The spirit maker launched Virginia Black last year with hip-hop artist Drake. He sold his DeLeón tequila to an investment group three years ago that included rapper and business mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, the L.A .Times reported.

Sandro Dazzan and Irene Dazzan-Palmer of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage have the listing.

Hocking isn’t the only one looking to leave Serra Retreat.

Down the street is a home registered to Wayne Hughes Jr., son of Public Storage founder Wayne Hughes, whose Spanish Colonial home has been on the market since 2015 with a current asking price of $10 million, The Real Deal discovered. [LAT]Subrina Hudson
