The co-founder of WhatsApp is believed to have purchased NBC Universal Vice President Ron Meyer from a $ 125 million mega-compound from Malibu that was once a celebrity party venue and offers stunning ocean views from the pool.
The impressive house with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, which also has two guest houses on a plot of 13,693 square feet at the prestigious location in West Los Angeles, was mentioned by Meyer last year.
It is assumed that the new owner is tech billionaire Jan Koum, who founded the international messaging platform WhatsApp in 1975 together with Brian Acton, who will move in with his super model girlfriend Evelina Mambetova, two sources say Variety.
Located above the picturesque and appropriately named Paradise Cove, known as one of the most beautiful beaches in LA, the house overlooks the beloved place, but is hidden from the public by hedges and a large driveway.
The locations have a swimming pool with views of the Pacific Ocean, a north-south facing tennis court and various expansive lawns, Variety reported. There is also a library with two floors and a cinema, hidden in the house.

It has not been officially confirmed, but sources say that Jan Koum (right), co-founder of WhatsApp, has purchased the property for a currently undisclosed amount in excess of $ 100 million.
If Koum is confirmed as a buyer, he could move in with his girlfriend Evelina Mambetova (above). The tech billionaire has been going out with the 28-year-old Ukrainian supermodel since 2014
The interior features a sculptural floating staircase and large glass walls that enclose an impressive ceiling with double height. An open kitchen from the chef overlooks the ocean and leads to the patio with a rectangular swimming pool.
Although Koum from Ukraine has yet to be confirmed as a buyer, the rumor sale apparently amounted to an currently undisclosed amount in excess of $ 100 million.
If it was sold for the listing price or more than $ 119.7 million, it becomes the highest amount paid for a home in California, beating the previous record that & # 39; The Manor & # 39; settled in Holmby Hills last month, the Los Angeles Times reported. The building was known in pop culture as the home of TV producer Aaron Spelling.
Meyer bought the property in 1997 from former creative artist agency Mike Ortiz for around $ 5 million.
He then hired the late architect Charles Gwathmey to renovate the house and spend millions to turn the building into a contemporary compound before 2000.
Koum and his 28-year-old Ukrainian supermodel friend Mambetova with whom he has been dating since 2014 may be the future residents of the building in Malibu.
Over the years, many celebrities and TV staff have attended parties, including Barbara Streisand, Jennifer Aniston, Cindy Crawford and others, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Outside the house is a rectangular swimming pool that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, as well as rows of tall trees and lush lawns. Another important feature is an impressive tennis court (above) that is laid out to the north to the south, which is considered the best for sport

If it is sold for the asking price of $ 125 million, it can break the record in California for the most expensive house. Neither the price nor the buyer has been officially confirmed
