Malibu Castle, which perished in today's fire, was actually in Escrow and set to have the final walk-through on Wednesday.

The deal was expected to close this Friday, and while the final selling price can't be confirmed, it had an asking price of $17 million.

The home is owned by socialite Lilly Lawrence, who was not home at the time of the blaze.
