Bruce Jenner is movin' on up!

The Jenner patriarch is transitioning from his Malibu beach bachelor pad to an isolated hilltop ranch! Bruce enlisted the help of his son Brandon and a pal to pack up some wall hangings and a chest of drawers that he wanted to take to his new home. Otherwise, the 6,000 square-foot home is fully furnished and ready for Bruce and his new life.

Since Thursday, Bruce has been slowly taking some personal items up to the new house. Jenner tried to hide from our photographer (covering his face WHILE he was driving), as he transported everything from a surf board to an ironing board to his lonely new abode.

Bruce is ditching his old digs due to the lack of privacy -- even multi-million dollar homes on the beach in Malibu are literally feet away from each other. Neighbors could practically see in his window; the Keeping Up With the Kardashians film crew was getting complaints; and of course ALL the paparazzi knew his address.

With this new, 4-bedroom, 4-bath, $3 million home, Bruce hopes to restore some privacy and be able to drive his remote control, off-road cars in peace, deep in the Malibu Mountains. It's a country lifestyle, where it's not uncommon to see snakes and mountain lions on the property ... but clearly, Bruce is looking for a change.
