Loaded with appeal, abundant views, and a cabin-like ambiance, this oceanfront compound with 66 feet of beach frontage is a masterpiece in wood, brick, and stone. A separate guest house, private brick patio, full-width ocean-view deck, and frontage on Escondido Beach are highlighted with very tall wood ceilings, lustrous paneling and wood plank floors, and an open flow conducive to congenial indoor-outdoor gatherings.
The central living area comprises a living room and kitchen divided by a large fireplace and floor-to-ceiling brick chimneypiece. A wall of glass on one side of the living room opens to the ocean-view deck, with ample room for lounging and al fresco dining, plus steps down to the sand. The well-equipped kitchen has generous counter space and a wide bank of garden windows. Off the kitchen is a separate formal dining room with library shelving and a sliding glass door to the oceanfront deck.
The home’s two bedrooms include a lovely primary suite with a tiled fireplace, walk-in closet, ocean-view bath, and a private beachfront deck. A stairway in the living room leads to the lower level, where there is a spacious family/media/office/recreation room with a door leading to the beach, where there is additional room for entertaining, relaxing, and star-gazing.
At the front of the house, a beautiful rose garden patio offers very private outdoor living and dining space with a barbecue. Off the patio, the guest house, which has a celebrity pedigree, is currently used as a studio. It has chandelier-height truss-and-beam ceilings, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. Equipped with security, air conditioning, and solar power, this is Malibu beach living at its most charming.
