A Mediterranean estate of exceptional grace and style, this remarkable bluff-top residence commands a majestic panorama from Point Dume to the sparkling lights of the Queen’s Necklace, from the shoreline whitewater to Catalina Island. With every detail considered for maximum comfort and beauty, the home is generous in its spacious dignity, respectful use of materials, and exquisite flow. Occupying a deep lot of more than 1.2 acres, this is both a private sanctuary and an elegant setting for luxurious entertaining.
Down the gated drive, past the putting green, sports court, and formal gardens, a welcoming fountain courtyard leads to a grand foyer entry, which provides the first glimpse of the estate’s magnificent sightlines. Designed in a U-shape, with bedroom wings flanking the central courtyard, the home’s main living areas and the owner’s suite look out onto ever-changing ocean vistas.
Blending traditional attention to detail with lavish appreciation of space and light, the interior is finished with a careful eye to craft and quality. The walls and ceilings are plastered by hand and very smooth. Hardwood floors are complemented with stone tile. High ceilings are accented with rough-hewn beams. Fold-away glass doors open onto cordial patios.
The gracious formal dining room sits at the heart of the house, flanked by the living room. Both rooms have massive fireplaces and open onto a wide terrace for outdoor dining and entertaining. Beyond the terrace is the pool and spa, a large lawn with an in-ground trampoline, and a bluff-side vista point for round-the-clock enjoyment of sea and sky. A private stairway descends the bluff to Malibu Road and the beach.
From the living room, a wide doorway opens onto the huge gourmet kitchen, with high ceilings, professional appliances, a separate prep area, and all custom cabinetry. At the other end of the kitchen is the family room, and beyond that, two en-suite bedrooms.
Across the courtyard, the opposite wing has two additional en-suite bedrooms plus a lovely den with high ceilings and a wall of glass that opens to a garden patio.
From the home’s entry, a small foyer opens to the owner’s suite – an exceptionally beautiful retreat with high plaster walls, fireplace, and glass accordion doors onto a covered lanai with a fireplace, also accessible from the backyard. There is a huge custom closet and the master bath is uniquely luxurious, complete with a fully-equipped kitchenette.
With full home automation, ample parking, harmonious landscaping, and non-stop views, this Mediterranean villa is truly a legacy property.
