22540 Carbon Mesa Road, Malibu, CA, 90265
Lyrical architecture by Frank Israel and sustainable landscape by Jay Griffith combine to make a serene retreat behind gates on Carbon Mesa. Leave the car within the gated parking court, meander along the articulated facade, and glimpse the ocean through the trees before entering the home. Inside, the living, dining, and family rooms flow seamlessly to meet the gourmet island kitchen before the space leads the eye through floor-to-ceiling walls of glass to the pool and terraces outside. In one direction lies the main bedroom wing with two en-suite bedrooms and a spa-like master suite facing the pool and garden on one side and a quiet, ocean-view patio on the other. Step up to the glazed 'cockpit' office overlooking the entire complex and the sea beyond. The other side of the house has two more en-suite bedrooms and a bonus/bedroom/office. The grounds invite you to test the lap pool or the many dining and seating areas and walk to the private arroyo descending from the gardens. Three-car garage, guest parking, high ceilings, expansive skylights, two fireplaces, and hardwood floors. A distinctive and special property epitomizing the best of one of Southern California's foremost architects.
Available for lease September 2021.
