James Perse’s home in Point Dume follows the minimalist style he’s known for in the luxury retail world

Almost everything that comes from fashion designer James Perse is focused on minimalism. Almost.

The luxury lifestyle creator has listed one his estates in the Point Dume area of Malibu for $40 million, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book. Perse paid $16 million for the property on Zumirez Road in 2010, according to the report.

The single-story residence spans 4,200 square feet and includes five bedrooms and six bathrooms on 1.2 acres. The gated property features direct access to Little Dume Beach. The home was built in 2004 by “X-Files” creator Chris Carter, and designed by the firm Nicolas, Budd, Dutton. The design and interior follow the minimalism style that define Perse’s products.

Perse owns a second home on Point Dume that he purchased for $12.5 million in 2016. And two years ago, he sold another home there to oil heiress Aileen Getty for $13 million.

The same cul-de-sac has attracted well-known residents, including Barbra Streisand.

In 2013, he paid $10.9 million for Ellen DeGeneres’ 26-acre equestrian ranch near Thousand Oaks.

Among the dozens of Perse boutique retail stores around the world are those in Malibu, Beverly Hills and Newport Beach. Last year, Perse opened an 11,000-square-foot flagship location on North Roberston Boulevard[Yolanda]Gregory Cornfield
