30804 Broad Beach Road, Malibu, CA, 90265
A haven of spacious tranquility and privacy in a tropical setting, this exquisite, gated Broad Beach home has ocean views, tremendous character and an entertainment industry pedigree. With high ceilings, extensive fine woodwork, wide interior arches, and natural stone and dark wood floors, the home is a sanctuary rich with comforts. A welcoming fountain courtyard leads to the front door, which opens onto a double-height chandelier entry hall. Off this hall is a Crestron projection/media/family room with a large screen and built-in cabinets and shelves. Two steps down is a huge great room where a large, ornate wet bar occupies one corner and a stone-framed side door leads to a jewel-like Zen garden. Just beyond is the main living area, with two-story wood-beam ceilings, dramatic stone chimneypiece, and floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto a huge deck for entertaining. The living room is open to a large dining area, also with floor-to-ceiling windows to the patio, and a chef’s kitchen with granite countertops, island, breakfast bar, new high-end appliances, beautiful cabinetry, and an open butler’s pantry with temperature-controlled wine storage. Also on the main floor is a spacious en-suite bedroom with wood floors and French doors to the front courtyard. From the entry hall, a grand staircase with ornate carved posts ascends to a large wraparound mezzanine. On this level, there is an office and an en-suite bedroom, both overlooking the front courtyard, as well as the spectacular ocean-view owner’s retreat. This is complete with high wood-beam ceilings, a rock fireplace, a sitting area, and double glass doors opening onto a Juliet balcony overlooking the living room. There is also a kitchenette, a huge closet with custom built-ins, a luxurious spa-style bath, and a private ocean-view deck. This overlooks the resort-like Balinese-inspired backyard, which offers multiple areas for dining, entertaining, and relaxation, plus fountains, a covered sitting area with fireplace, a barbecue kitchen island, and a large grassy area leading to a gated trail to the ocean. Above the three-car garage is a two-room guest house with kitchen and full bath. A truly remarkable property in prime beachfront Malibu.
