After several outings beachcombing for buyers, actor David Spade has said “buh-bye” to his oceanfront house in Malibu.

The buyers are Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos and his wife, Nicole Avant, former U.S. ambassador to the Bahamas, according to public records. The sales price was not disclosed.

Built in 1996, the light and airy two-story house features four fireplaces and surf-facing balconies and decks. The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home has 3,763 square feet of living space and sits on a quarter-acre lot with a pool.

Spade, 49, starred as single friend Russell in the TV comedy “Rules of Engagement” (2007-13) and is in the recently released film “Grown Ups 2.” Among his memorable skits from his 1990s “Saturday Night Live” days, Spade played a flight attendant who utters “buh-bye” as passengers deplane.

The comic actor, known for his sarcasm and caustic one-liners, bought the Malibu property in 2005 for $9.3 million.

He listed the house two years later for $16 million and subsequently put it up for lease. The home had most recently been listed at $11.6 million.
