Extraordinary design and exceptional privacy create the perfect atmosphere for tranquil living and spectacular indoor-outdoor entertaining in this harmonious Point Dume estate. Set well off the street behind gates on approximately 1.8 acres and surrounded by expansive lawns, the home glows with natural light, a neutral palette, and gorgeous hardwood floors.
With an aura of casual sophistication, every detail has been considered for beauty and comfort. The great flow and wonderful sightlines are apparent from the moment you walk through the front door, where the spacious foyer with herringbone wood flooring opens to the grand-scale living room and, beyond that, the gorgeous back yard, patio, and pool.
One end of the living room steps up to a large dining room furnished with an antique wooden trestle table, while the other end shares a double-sided fireplace with the family room. A nearby office/library has handsome floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The kitchen is sleek and sensational, an entertaining center in itself, with top-quality appliances, including a glass-front double refrigerator, a huge handcrafted dining table, a walk-in pantry, and another large, comfortable seating area. Wide French doors in the kitchen open to a backyard dining area under a pergola, where there is also an outdoor living room facing the back lawn and pool. Completing the home’s main floor is a en-suite guest bedroom, a powder room, laundry room, and two mud rooms with generous storage.
There are two staircases providing access to the second floor landing, where there is a comfortable reading nook. The bedrooms on this level include the peaceful primary suite, complete with fireplace, sitting area, and views over the back yard, huge custom closet, and spa-style bath. There are three additional bedrooms, plus an en-suite playroom, which could serve as another bedroom.
The property is immaculately maintained, with flat, manicured lawns and hedges, two barbecues, swimming pool and spa, swing set, lemon trees, rose bushes, and graceful mature trees. There are numerous areas furnished and lighted for dining, lounging, and entertaining. The two-car garage is currently equipped as a gym, with mirrored walls, and there is ample guest parking at the front of the house. The inspired vision of a celebrity designer is apparent in every room of this singular estate. Complete with a key to Little Dume Beach, this is Malibu living at its finest.
