By Helen Zhao Monday, March 20, 2017

The owner of a luxury car dealership in Texas has sold his five-bedroom, six-bathroom oceanfront dwelling in Malibu for about $15.9 million, according to listing agent Madison Hildebrand of Partners Trust Malibu.

The owner, Ron Heller, had listed the oceanfront dwelling for $16.5 million, according to Zillow. The single-story home at 11768 Ellice St. came furnished with grand ocean views and an infinity pool. Hildebrand described it as a “great entertaining space.”

Heller purchased the 7,200-square-foot home for $13 million in 2014, according to property records. Heller is building another custom home in Malibu and divides his time between Southern California and Texas, Hildebrand said.

Heller is co-owner of South Texas Luxury Experience – a San Juan, Texas, dealership with Mercedes-Benz, Acura, Audi, Land Rover, and Jaguar showrooms.

The home was also listed by agents Stephen Udoff and Katie Bentzen of Partners Trust.

The deal closed on March 10.
