Entertain and live in style in this spacious and very private Malibu modern home. Set behind gates and surrounded by more than two-and-a-half acres of park-like lawns and mature trees, the residence is beautifully updated and detailed with wood floors, four fireplaces, and decks overlooking the pool and expansive grounds.
The huge living room and family room each have beautiful wood plank and beam ceilings, a large fireplace, comfortable contemporary furnishings, flatscreen TV, and a wall of glass opening onto a balcony with room for dining and lounging. Up two steps is an open dining area with dramatic corner windows, and beyond that a superb contemporary chef’s kitchen, complete with white quartzite countertops, a large dine-in island, and quality appliances, including a warming drawer and built-in beverage cooler. Kitchen windows and a glass door open onto the verdant backyard and swimming pool.
On the home’s lower floor there is an en-suite bedroom with a rough-hewn stone fireplace, a kitchenette, and sliding doors to a garden patio. On the top floor, there are five bedrooms plus a sitting room, an additional room that could be an office or play room, and a laundry room. Several of these rooms, which have the same plank and beam ceilings, open onto balconies, including the beautiful primary suite, which has a fireplace, a window seat reading nook, a large walk-in closet, a private balcony with pool views, and a luxurious bath with skylight, chandelier, dual showerheads, and a separate water closet with a safe inside.
The home is equipped with a security system and cameras, multizone air conditioning, and automatic window shades. Set away from the road at the end of a long private drive, the home’s large circular motor court offers ample guest parking, plus a 3 car garage.
There are expansive lawns at the front of the house, while the multilevel backyard features a fully fenced pool and spa, several decks for entertaining and relaxation, additional lawns, a patio with outdoor lighting, and a landscaped and irrigated slope. Conveniently located above Zuma Beach, this is comfortable Malibu living at its best.
