Anthony Zuiker, the mastermind behind the television franchise “CSI,” sold his beach house in Malibu for $15.3 million on Feb. 15, according to the listing on Zillow.

The property, which is located at 31504 Victoria Point Road, is a single-family, four-story house built in 1976.

Zuiker bought it from basketball star Kevin Durant in 2019 for $12.15 million, according to data compiled by Zillow and media reports at the time.

It’s a moderately priced home for Malibu, with recent sales including interior designer and developer Saffron Case selling a 4,000-square-foot house along Carbon Beach for about $29 million in December.

Also in December, rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West sold his home for $53 million, after purchasing it for $57.25 million two years prior. Last year, Beyonce and husband Jay-Z paid $200 million for a Malibu mansion, the highest price for a home in California history.

Zuiker was looking to rent out the Malibu beach house last year for $90,000 per month and then listed it for sale in September, according to Zillow records.

Back in 2019, the television producer sold another Malibu property, a 5,500-square-foot home, to NBA player Chandler Parsons for $9.25 million, Variety reported.

The house features a third-story entrance, family room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom and the grand living room with ocean views, according to listing notes. Down one level is a mezzanine-style sitting room and two ensuite bedrooms. The bottom floor is a beach-level media suite, plus a full kitchen and a guest bedroom. The top floor includes an office space.

Chris Cortazzo of Compass held the listing. David Parnes and James Harris with The Agency represented the unidentified buyer.

Zuiker as well as the agents representing both sides of the deal did not respond to a request for comment.

The show “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” launched in 2000 focused on the Las Vegas Police Department. The concept later spawned three other television series.
