Beautifully sited on a private street in the Broad Beach area, this comfortable modern residence was created for seamless indoor-outdoor living and entertaining by local architect Douglas W. Burdge.
As the owner’s private residence, the home’s open design is topped with a series of long gables with very high ceilings and triangular end windows that offer tantalizing blue-sky views. Off the entry drive at the front of the house is a private patio with gabion stone walls, olive tree planters, built-in bench seating and a welcoming central fire feature. A covered walkway leads to the pivoting front door, which opens at the home’s mid-level, with the main living areas below and the bedrooms above.
On the lower level, the living, dining, and kitchen areas open seamlessly as a wall of 10 feet high Fleetwood doors fold away to a spacious deck. The living room has a lovely fireplace set into a reclaimed wood wall. The custom Poliform kitchen, illuminated by a set of high sloping windows, has sleek, clean lines, Gaggenau appliances, illuminated cabinets, Dekton counters, and bar seating. The deck extends the main floor space with a large outdoor living area and romantic covered dining area. For relaxing under the stars, there is a jetted Jacuzzi in one corner of the deck.
The home’s comfortable top floor comprises three bedrooms, including the owner’s suite, and a quaint den with a balcony. The owner’s suite is a tranquil retreat, with a reclaimed-wood headboard wall, a huge custom Poliform closet, multiple chandelier bathtub with an oversize porthole window, and vanishing doors that open onto a private ocean-view balcony.
Additional features include a powder room, a two-car garage, oak flooring, Dornbracht plumbing, Rocky Mountain door hardware, hookups for whole house generator and solar panels, and a side yard with an outdoor shower. A short walk to a private gated trail to one of Malibu’s most scenic beaches and close to shopping, dining, and hiking trails, this one-of-a-kind Malibu Modern residence is perfectly appointed for a relaxed and sophisticated lifestyle.
