Back in summer 2015, amid extensive online chatter, actor Patrick Dempsey sold his pedigreed Malibu estate for exactly $15 million. Built by ballyhooed “starchitect” Frank Gehry, the starkly idiosyncratic property known as the Tin House was featured in Architectural Digest during Dempsey’s ownership.
The home’s lucky new owner, septuagenarian Texas oil/gas billionaire Sid Bass, purchased the house for his younger daughter, New York-based socialite Samantha Bass. Though she apparently enjoyed her new Malibu digs — and even expanded the compound by purchasing an adjacent property — the good times quickly ground to a screeching halt last November (2018), when the multi-acre spread was engulfed by the Woolsey Fire.
