Palatial in design and of a scale that cannot be replicated today, this ultra-private cul-de-sac estate commands gorgeous ocean, whitewater, and coastline views from its prestigious Point Dume bluff. Over an acre of parklike grounds for sumptuous living, including a private path to beach and multiple surf breaks. This grand residence invites sumptuous entertaining and a lifestyle of harmonious luxury.
Constructed on three levels to optimize the amazing views, the updated home has an elevator, dramatically high ceilings, soffit lighting, enormous curved windows, multiple fireplaces, and beautiful hardwood and limestone parquet floors. The property’s front gate leads to a circular drive, where lush landscaping and a resort-style porte-cochère welcome visitors.
Breathtaking views and bold sightlines begin at the front door, which opens to reveal a grand circular foyer with double-height ceilings, exquisite sweeping staircase, and a pair of tall columns flanking the entry arch to the living room and the views beyond. The living room has a huge fireplace, a serene piano alcove, and majestic floor-to-ceiling windows facing onto the ocean. French doors open to one of the home’s view balconies for entertaining, al fresco dining, and relaxing under the stars. Two steps up from the living room is a beautiful ocean-view dining area.
The chef’s kitchen features a well-equipped butler’s pantry plus a walk-in storage pantry, granite countertops, a large island, and top-quality appliances, including a restaurant-style Wolf range with a griddle top. An adjacent casual dining area steps down to a spacious ocean-view family room with a fireplace. This also opens onto the view balcony. Completing the main floor are an en-suite, ocean-view maid’s/guest bedroom, an ocean-view office, and two powder rooms.
On the upper floor, accessible by elevator or the central staircase, is the stunning owner’s suite, with gorgeous views, fireplace, lavish marble spa-style bath, generous custom closets, and a large private balcony complete with fireplace and ocean-view seating. Also on the upper floor is another en-suite bedroom and an office/bonus/yoga room with a mirrored wall and an entertainment beverage station.
On the estate’s lower floor, in addition to three more ocean view en-suite bedrooms, is a mirrored gym, a powder room, laundry room, and a huge billiards/recreation room with a fireplace, wet bar, ocean views, and French doors opening to a large lawn that wraps around to the front of the house. The backyard entertaining area includes a covered patio, a view pavilion with an outdoor shower, permits for hot tub spa, and lighted steps all the way to the beach. The home has a two-car garage and a three-car garage.
This spectacular estate is in every way equal to its magnificent setting: an inspired achievement for a Malibu lifestyle of tranquil luxury.
