With sensational views, European styling, and amenities galore, this Italian-style villa combines classical design with up-to-the-minute features for year-round comfort and elegant entertaining. Situated behind gates on over an acre of gorgeous Mediterranean landscaping, the property’s highlights include a well-appointed guest house, theater, 3000-bottle wine cellar, infinity-edge pool, bocce court, and stunning straight-on views of Catalina and the ocean, plus the sparkling lights of the Queen’s Necklace. 

The carved, double front doors reveal a charming foyer that opens into a majestic entry hall with clerestory windows, a soaring, hand-painted domed ceiling, beautiful limestone flooring, and a stairway with a wrought-iron rail curving up to the second floor. Ahead is the step-down living room, awash in natural light. The room has extraordinary acoustics, ideal for music, with exposed beams, tall, arched windows with views from Palos Verdes to Point Dume, a massive stone fireplace, and double French doors opening to the entertainer’s ocean-view patio. 

The chef’s kitchen blends traditional styling with modern efficiency: beamed ceiling, herringbone-pattern reclaimed-tile floors, an island with bar seating topped with exquisite Brazilian Bahia stone, marble countertops, top-quality appliances, a hand-painted fresco, a built-in barbecue, and altar-wood trim from a church in El Salvador. There is a spacious butler’s pantry with additional prep space, storage, and appliances, plus the laundry room adjoins the kitchen and has a door to the side yard. 

The kitchen opens out to include a large dining area with arched French doors to the ocean-view patio and a formal dining room occupies a round tower with chandelier ceiling, stained-glass window, and curved walls with windows overlooking the pool and ocean views. Off the living room is a theater/family room with a retractable screen, blackout shades, and ocean views. 

A hall off the foyer leads to a classic bookcase-lined office/library  with beamed ceilings, limestone floors, a large fireplace, and French doors to the front yard. Continuing along this hallway, the wine cellar / tasting room feels like it could have been imported from a European castle. An en-suite bedroom has a sitting area and ocean views. Next door is a gym, also en-suite, with wood floors and a walk-in closet. At the end of the hallway is a circular family room, complete with beamed ceilings, wood floors, courtyard and mountain views, and a bathroom. 

The estate’s upper floor is home to the gorgeous primary suite, with tall, beamed ceilings, antique reclaimed hardwood floors, a huge stone fireplace with fossilized shells quarried in San Luis Obispo, a sitting area, a walk-in closet, and French doors to a private deck with panoramic views. The primary bath has a lounge, a fireside, ocean-view, jetted, Carrara-marble tub, dual water closets, and a door to a partially covered private deck. Beyond the bath is a bonus work/play/studio room with ocean views and a nook with a hand-painted mural. 

At the front of the house there is a patio and fountain with sweeping mountain views. A generous motor court offers parking for nine cars. Above the three-car garage is a charming, private guest house, with a large living/sleeping room with beamed ceiling, herringbone tile floors, mountain-view balconies, a separate dining room, a kitchen, and a bath. 

The back of the property is terraced, with a selection of open and covered seating, beautiful pool and spa, lawn, dining areas, fire feature, bocce court, outdoor shower, olive trees, and views, views, views. The home’s additional features include multi-zone air conditioning, full-house sound, plus security and alarm systems. Built by one of Malibu’s most respected builders, this exceptionally private estate is located just minutes from central Malibu, beaches, trails, dining, and all that Malibu has to offer.
