Actress Charlize Theron may have just gotten lucky. Her Malibu home, which we first wrote about back in December, has gone into escrow. The house was originally listed for $7.5 million, though the actress had recently dropped the price to $6,995,000. No word on the final sale price.

Theron and her former partner, actor Stuart Townsend, first listed the 2,095-square-foot house as a rental, for $30,000 a month. Although substantially remodeled, the beachfront home is one of the original houses on La Costa Beach. It has three bedrooms and a deck facing the ocean and features a hot tub, fire pit, water features and beach toys, according to the listing.
