Denise Richards Rents Broad Beach House
Though former Bond girl Denise Richards will join the cast for the upcoming ninth season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” she and her new husband, Aaron Phypers, ex-husband of “Desperate Housewives” star Nicollette Sheridan, are actually shacked up in a rented beachfront home in beautiful but tragically firescorched Malibu that was last listed at $17,500 per month. With almost 3,100 square feet of airy, oceanfront living space, the two-story residence has three bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a detached, studio-style bedroom and bathroom separated from the main house by a wind-protected interior courtyard.
A combination living and dining room spans the width of the house with a minimalist raised-hearth fireplace, bright white walls, chocolate brown floor tiles and full-height glass sliders that open to a partly covered oceanfront terrace with a raised sunbathing deck. Clerestory windows fill the slender, all-white galley kitchen with ambient natural light; the second-floor master suite features a vaulted, exposed-wood ceiling, a fireplace and a wall of glass sliders to a private deck with panoramic views up and down the mountain-ringed coastline.
