On over an acre and half of lush, tropical forest sits one of the most stunning properties in Malibu. Within the coveted guard-gated Serra Retreat, within walking distance to the beach and next to fine dining and luxury shopping, Villa Mariposa is a magical retreat of its own. A complete masterful renovation, this iconic Mediterranean estate with its subtle Moorish accents, towering royal palms, and extensive gardens at every turn transforms this home into an oasis like no other. The well-appointed five-bedroom, seven-bathroom estate, is an entertainer’s dream, featuring all of the amenities of a world-class resort. Enter the home through the flower canopied courtyard into the towering hallway that leads to an expansive sunken formal living room. This grand room boasts oversized French doors that open to the mature, landscaped gardens and resort-style heated pool and jacuzzi.
Showcase your book collection and accolades in a traditional shelf-lined library and office. A large family-style kitchen, breakfast, and lounge area is at the heart of the home, it connects to an intimate domed-ceiling dining room with antique brick finishings and fireplace. Recently renovated, yet keeping with its authentic style, this special home is the epitome of rustic meets modern design - wood-beamed ceilings, stucco walls, five fireplaces and solid artisan wood doors, many materials imported from Europe, South and Central America. A state-of-the-art theater room and a guest wing with a professionally equipped gym, infrared sauna, and steam room complete this destination style home. A separate staff apartment is located above one of the two double-car garages, extra washer/dryer set, storage areas, an industrial-sized generator, organic garden with fruit trees, and chicken coop.
There is a whole-home water filtration system with an additional reverse osmosis drinking water unit. Entertain with ease with parking for up to 23 cars in the enclosed rear parking area plus additional carport parking in front. Enjoy the basketball court, a second manicured turf grass backyard with landscape lighting, outdoor fireplace, and lounge area. New A/C units, ductwork and UV/Hepa units will ensure the air quality in the home. Experience this once in a lifetime family estate, located in one of the most sought-after areas in the World. Villa Mariposa is elegantly decorated and is offered turnkey- both furnished and unfurnished.
