Greg Louganis Takes the Plunge and Puts His Malibu Home on the Market

We can’t decide what we like better about the diver's home: the unobstructed views of the Pacific, or the custom pool with Olympic rings.

Talk about commitment! Would you be able to give up a Malibu home with incredible views and a swimming pool built especially for you, just so your husband wouldn’t have to commute so far to work every day? That’s exactly what Olympic gold medal-winning diver Greg Louganis has done. His Malibu home is currently up for sale ($2,999,999) or lease ($15,000 per month), while Louganis and his husband, Johnny Chaillot, move closer to Chaillot’s office in Beverly Hills.

Their former Malibu home is 3,385 square feet with an enormous great room, three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a separate, fully contained guesthouse. But it’s the sweeping views of the Malibu coastline, as well as a unique diving pool designed specifically for Louganis – Olympic rings and all – that really make the home a standout.

In anticipation of new residents, Louganis refurbished the place with new carpet, windows and paint throughout. There’s a huge walk-in closet off the master bedroom, which also has a fireplace and a balcony to take advantage of the unobstructed views from the home’s perch on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The house is reasonably priced, considering other homes of similar size in Malibu are renting or selling for more than twice that much. Of course, many of the highest priced pads are right on the beach. While you can see the ocean from Louganis’ home, it’s a bit of a schlep to the water — definitely a drive, rather than a walk, with all your beach accoutrements. But you can always take a dip in that spectacular pool while looking at the ocean, feeling the breeze and smelling the salt in the air. At that price, it’s an excellent alternative.
