Spacious, welcoming, and awash with natural light, this Western Malibu garden home has high ceilings, a comfortable, open-plan layout, and ocean views from both levels. Wide sliding-glass doors open onto wraparound decks for relaxed indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
At the heart of the home is an enormous great room with very high wood-plank ceilings. On one side is the step-down living room with a cozy fireplace sitting area, an under-stair wet bar, and glass doors opening to the beautifully landscaped front garden.
Around the corner and three steps up is the formal dining area, which opens to the back deck and garden, where there is ample room for al fresco dining and entertaining. This adjoins the kitchen, which has Saltillo tile floors, tile countertops, a long buffet-style counter shared with the dining area, bar seating, plus a cheerful breakfast area with wraparound glass doors to the back deck and garden.
There are three bedrooms on the main level, one currently used as an office, and two bathrooms. Upstairs is a family/media room that opens onto an ocean-view deck, plus the spacious ocean-view primary suite complete with a skylight, fireplace, large walk-in closet, a tiled bath, and sliding glass doors to the ocean-view wraparound balcony.
In addition to the back deck and a grassy side yard, backyard steps lead up through the terraced plantings to a garden oasis, perfect for quiet conversation and small gatherings. Additional features include a two-car garage with laundry and storage, driveway parking, security system, and Lechuza Beach access. A wonderful house in a wonderful location, near Trancas Country Market, beaches, Point Dume, and miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails.
