Former Paramount Pictures head sells Malibu Colony home for $18 million

Veteran Hollywood executive Jonathan Dolgen, who formerly headed Paramount Pictures, has sold his home in Malibu for $18 million. The buyer was Chris Columbus, director of such films as “Home Alone,” “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”

The English traditional-style home sits along a 48-foot stretch of sand in gated Malibu Colony and has coastline and open-water views.

A brick courtyard leads to the entrance of the 6,343-square-foot house, which has a great room, a chef’s kitchen, a step-down wine cellar and a screening room. In the master suite, which has a fireplace and a separate sitting room, glass doors open to an ocean-facing deck.
