Spacious, private, and absolutely gorgeous, this ocean-view estate combines traditional Spanish architectural details with the amenities, comforts, and abundant natural light of a contemporary indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Complete with guest house, pool, and over an acre of mature landscaping, the property is stately, elegant, and ideal for intimate soirees and grand entertaining.
Set behind gates at the end of a long drive, the arched, double-door, chandelier entry immediately reveals the character of the residence: ocean views, high wood-beamed ceilings, huge windows, handsome wood and tile floors, and wrought-iron detailing. Beautifully furnished, the living room and family room both have fireplaces, and the step-down, ocean-view dining room has a striking coffered ceiling.
The kitchen, which adjoins the family room and has a bright breakfast bay, features a large chandelier island with bar seating, lovely tilework, ample cabinet and counter space, and top-quality appliances. Completing the main floor is an en-suite office/guest bedroom and a powder room.
Wood stairs faced with colorful Malibu tiles lead to the upper floor, where a long, railed balcony overlooks the hallway below and leads to the three bedroom suites. The primary suite has high, plank-and-beam ceilings, a corner fireplace, a walk-in closet, a tiled bath with a tub and steam shower, plus a tranquil ocean-view balcony.
In the side yard, Malibu-tiled steps lead up to the guest house, which has beamed ceilings, bedroom/office, full bath, balcony, and charming tilework with imported European tiles. The backyard, with ocean and Catalina views, offers ample room for entertaining, with covered and open patios, an outdoor living room, a pool and spa with an expansive pool deck for lounging, barbecues, and al fresco dining, plus upper and lower lawn areas, and a hammock.
There is a three-car garage as well as guest parking for four vehicles. With air conditioning, and security and sound systems, this majestic Central Malibu estate is a haven of privacy with easy access to beaches, boutiques, and fine dining.
