Truth vs. Rumors: The Iron Man House For Sale

Truth About Ironman's House

Have you noticed all the hype on the Internet over the past two months about the Iron Man house? If not, I’ll give you the quick version of the story. If you do a Google search, you’ll see that beginning in March there have been dozens of posts written (some on reputable large blogs) about the actual house used for the filming of Iron Man being for sale in Malibu for $25 million dollars. This was the incredible house that we all remember in the movie as Tony Stark’s home with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.

Most of the articles go on to describe the house in detail, saying it is 11,000 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, includes a two level guest house, private beach access, etc… Since I’m a huge Iron Man fan, when I first saw this, I immediately tried to think of someone I could borrow $25 million bucks from. After all, this is the dream house to top all dream houses, and $25 million seems like a steal, right?

However, after I thought about it more, I started to remember reading about this movie when it came out, and I thought they created that house as part of the movie set. Suddenly it was all so confusing. I haven’t had a chance to research it until today. I’m confident I’ve uncovered the truth, as sad as it may be. The first place I went was Snopes, but there was nothing there about it. In the movie, you can clearly see that the house is on Point Dume. I have been to Malibu and Santa Monica enough times to know that Point Dume is a historical landmark, meaning, no houses can be built there.

I went to wikipedia to see what I could dig up. According to the Point Dume wiki, “In Iron Man, Tony Stark’s huge seaside mansion is located on Point Dume… Though interior shots of the home were filmed on real sets, the house itself is fictional. Because Point Dume is a protected area and thus construction on its cliffs is strictly prohibited, the home was created as a 3D model and digitally placed on the rocks in post-production.

However, we all know that sometimes what we read on wikipedia is BS, right? So I continued researching… I found this blog written by a life long resident of Malibu who confirms the wikipedia information. I still wasn’t satisfied. I needed more definitive proof. There was only one place to go, Google Earth. Guess what? After searching Google Earth, I can say with 100% confidence that there is no house sitting on Point Dume like what we see in that movie. I do think there may be an “Iron Man lookalike house” in Southern California for sale for $34 million now, but I will update you on that after I am able to confirm it.

If you still aren’t convinced that this house doesn’t exist, consider this quote from the Iron Man director himself, Jon Favreau, “It’s sort of like the best spot and nobody is allowed to build there, so we put a digital house there.” The video below says it all. So to all of you out there that were saving your pennies to buy this house, it ain’t happening. I know, it’s disappointing. I feel your pain. I think I’ll still look at the pictures below and dream. I’ll just pretend I don’t know the truth.

The Ironman house was CGI generated and was supposed to be in Malibu. It does not actually exist. The pictures you present are from a real house called the Razor Residence in La Jolla, San Diego, designed by renowned architect Wallace E Cunningham, which DOES actually exist; indeed, the IM house was probably based on it or inspired by it. Google “Razor Residence”.

Yup. Steve’s right. The pictures above are from the La Jolla house listing, which sold in 2011 for $14,100,000. I am appraising another house in La Jolla and when I came across the listing my first thought was “man that sure looks like the Iron Man house.” I guess everyone else thought the same thing.

$25 million? That amount wouldn’t even pay for the infrastructure needed to build such a home.

I live in Hawai’i. $25 million buys you 3500 sq feet on the ocean. Period.

There is a building in Manhattan that you may be aware of . One57. Remember Hurricane Sandy and the crane that broke in the winds? Yeah? Well One57 has TWO $90 million penthouses on top.

$25 million is nothing anymore. It’s f****** ridiculous that some people have that amount of money!

Let me add you here that in the last of the Iron Man 3 Tony was standing on that historical landmark which is actually present there.

I’m curious to find out what blog system you are working with? I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest site and I would like to find something more secure. Do you have any recommendations?
