David Duchovny and wife actress Téa Leoni are moving to New York. They’ve listed their 6,578-square-foot Malibu ocean-view home for $12 million and expect to be settled back East before their children return to school in the fall.
Leoni has been itching to move back East for some time now, and the Malibu fires — their home was not damaged but was in the mandatory evacuation zone — tipped the scales for her, sources say. The two-story house being sold has two swimming pools — one a regulation lap pool. There are five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a separate gym. The 5 1/2 -acre property includes membership in the La Costa Beach Club. There is a two-room guesthouse over a three-car garage. The house was built in 1996.
The property sits two doors from one bought earlier this year by country singer Kenny Chesney. He paid $7.4 million and then put the house back on the market at $7.95 million about six weeks later. It remains unsold.
