U2 star The Edge has splashed out $2 million on a luxury home in Malibu. The 39-year-old guitarist bought the two bedroom house after visiting it three times. He will use it as an American base but continue to live at home in Dalkey, Dublin. The multi-millionaire, whose real name is David Evans, fell in love with the house after he saw it on a visit to Los Angeles.

It has four bathrooms, a swimming pool and a view of the beach.

Malibu is the home to many of Hollywood's rich and famous including Irish actor Pierce Brosnan. Last night a friend of the star said: "It's money well spent as far as The Edge is concerned. "He doesn't just splash out on a house whenever it takes his fancy but he's had his eye on the house in Malibu for a long time. "He went and visited it one last time recently and told them he will take it. "It's going to be a good base for him outside Ireland and he'll be there a few times next year."

The guitarist has recently applied to make £500,000 worth of modifications to his house in Dalkey. He wants to knock down and re-build nearly half his cottage and improve facilities and sewage systems around the house.

U2 will spend most of the first half of 2001 in America on their world tour. The pal said he was delighted with his latest purchase: "He is thrilled to bits to have bought the house. "Malibu is one of his favourite places in the world and he gets the privacy he likes there. "There are so many stars living near by that it's no big deal to see a rock star walking down the road."
