Inside Mike D of the Beastie Boys’ Malibu Home

Mike D Beastie Boys Malibu Home

Mike D, of the legendary Beastie Boys, recently invited Architectural Digest into his modern home located in Malibu, Calif., which you get a peek at here.

The rap legend lived in a massive home in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles 13 years ago… but then, he discovered the beach.

“It was a California dream: three stories, steps down to a pool, commanding views of the city. It was close to Hollywood and Silver Lake, where everyone we knew lived, and we could walk across the street to Griffith Park for endless miles of hikes with our dog,” Mike D tells the mag. “Then we discovered the beach.”

The Malibu home was originally a group of buildings that included a three-bedroom house and cottages for the guests. So, Mike and his family did some renovation and made it all into a single residence.

Mike D was involved in the interior design process throughout. Take a look at the photo gallery above, and for more on the story, visit the story on Architectural Digest here.
