From the grand entry plaza to the picture-perfect ocean views, this magnificent Spanish villa is elegant in every detail. Sited for maximum privacy, the approximately 36-plus acre estate is both personal sanctuary and flawless setting for extravagant entertaining. It is surrounded by four additional parcels of pristine landscape for a total of approximately 225 acres.
Generous amenities, such as a guest house, gorgeous infinity pool, and a lawn large enough to accommodate hundreds of party guests, are complemented by exquisitely crafted details: exposed beams, traditional decorative tilework, and floors of Saltillo tiles and hardwood.
The living room is palatial, with its soaring ceiling, clerestory lights, large fireplace, arched doorways, and enormous arched window facing the sea. The chandelier dining room, also with a fireplace, overlooks the pool and ocean views. The chef’s kitchen, with skylight, ocean view, and superb tilework, has a large island, granite countertops, wine storage, a walk-in pantry, and a lovely breakfast area.
The home’s bedrooms are arranged in two separate wings for maximum privacy, space, and views. One wing has two bedrooms on the main level that open onto a private patio and palapa, plus a staff/guest suite on the lower level, complete with two bedrooms, office, and living room/kitchenette. The owner’s wing is a stunning ocean-view retreat with a fireplace, clerestory accent windows, arched doorways, a large cedar-lined walk-in closet, and glass doors that open onto an open-air patio refuge. A gorgeous bath with sparkling emerald tilework opens to a large lounging terrace where a portico shades an ocean-view spa. This majestic suite also features a private sitting room with a fireplace and quiet loft space that could be an office, yoga room, library, or art studio.
The enormous backyard, which commands spectacular ocean, island, and Queen’s Necklace views, features a sublime infinity pool, Jacuzzi, full outdoor kitchen, bar seating, and numerous patio areas for day and evening entertaining.
The guest house, scenically sited on a lower part of the estate, is entirely separate from the main residence. Adjacent to the expansive lawn, it has a wraparound porch and patio with an outdoor kitchen and a pergola for al fresco dining. Created with the same exacting attention to detail as the main house, the guest accommodations include a double-height living room and full kitchen, fireplace, dining and lounging gallery, bedroom, bathroom, powder room, and additional loft bedroom. There is also a laundry room plus a lovely pergola-shaded patio with a hot tub.
Among the property’s many additional features are a separate gated service entrance with a large motor court and event-staging area, a large solar array, and a three-car garage plus ample parking for 20 or more vehicles. One of the adjoining parcels features an approximately 800 square foot cinderblock structure, fully permitted by Charter Communications and complete with generator and air conditioning.
Sublimely private and yet located just minutes from trails, beaches, and all the amenities of Malibu, this is a legacy property designed for a lifestyle of luxury and comfort.
