6334 Bonsall Drive, Malibu, CA, 90265
A magnificent compound in a magnificent setting, this country English-style estate blends classic details with the bright spaciousness of contemporary living. Set on approximately 1.39 meticulously landscaped acres, the property is gated and very private, with handsome mature trees, a huge waterfall pond, gazebo, verdant lawns, and seating areas that invite relaxed conversation and lively parties beneath the stars. This expansive estate combines the intimate pleasures of memory-making with the variety and quality of a legacy property.
The interiors make generous use of skylights, very high beamed ceilings, wood and stone flooring, and striking sight lines, to create a welcoming flow ideal for entertaining. The dramatic double-height living room is accented with a red brick floor-to-ceiling chimneypiece. A wide doorway opens onto a great room comprised of family room, dining area, and chef’s kitchen with stone counters, breakfast bar, and a row of windows looking out to the sylvan front yard and pond. French doors from the living room open onto a patio, and beyond that a room with high ceilings perfect for office/exercise room/art studio. French doors from the dining area lead to a huge entertainer’s patio with built-in barbecue center, fountain, and additional patio space. On the upper level, a loft-style office overlooks the living room and has French doors to a large wood deck. There are three bedrooms on this level, including the owner’s suite complete with skylight, large closet, luxurious bathroom, and a balcony overlooking the spectacular grounds.
Just inside the front gates is a studio guest house with a wood deck and spa, a large lawn, and steps to an additional deck with firepit. There is a circular motor court with ample guest parking and a three-car garage.
With a welcoming beauty that will capture the hearts of visitors of all ages, the stately home is surrounded by a landscape that will both soothe and entertain, whether sitting by the lake, making s’mores at the fire pit, battling a worthy opponent at lawn-chess or -checkers, bouncing on the trampoline, riding go-carts around the track, or sharing an al fresco meal and celebration beneath the trees. A home of great serenity.
