MALIBU, Calif. — The gate is going to be a problem.
An ironclad barrier stands just off the Pacific Coast Highway, choking off public access to a California home as beautiful as it is exclusive. There is a guardhouse, but no guards. There is a call box, but no directory for the eight residences on this private road.
“No solicitors,” says the sign at La Mer Estates. “No trespassing.”
Definitely no reporters.
Brian Bosworth’s house sits toward the top of the street. You can’t see it. Not from the gate, anyway. But it’s up there, a villa so impressive it was a setting in “The O.C.”
