6740 Wildlife Road, Malibu, CA, 90265
A private retreat, set back from the road on a quiet Point Dume street, this gated single-level celebrity home combines an abundance of natural light and open-concept interiors with gorgeous tropical gardens for true indoor-outdoor living, and includes a beach key. Known as “Little Kauai,” the approximately one-acre property is landscaped island-style, with 10 different species of palms and five species of plumeria offering shade and fragrance to the resort-like outdoor living and recreation areas.
The mid-century interior styling features a grand ocean-view living/dining/lounge/kitchen area with high ceilings, skylights, enormous windows, and pale wood floors. The windows, sliding glass doors, and views face onto the deck, pool, and palm-fringed gardens. Furnished for comfort and congenial gatherings, the living room has built-in speakers, a large flatscreen, shelves for books and art, and a step-down sunroom/lounge with wraparound windows and a large day bed/couch. With an added garden-view bay window over the sink, the kitchen enjoys the light and views from two sides and is beautifully equipped with quality appliances, which include a Wolf stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator, quartzite counters, bar seating, an adjoining pantry/laundry room, and central A/C and heat.
The three en-suite bedrooms are lovely and serene, with platform beds and custom closets. One opens to a vine-draped pergola facing the pool, while the step-down primary suite features a wall of glass opening to an outdoor living room.
The grounds are sensational, with multiple areas for entertaining, dining, and relaxing. In addition to the lush palms and wraparound pergola at the front of the house, there is a large shaded patio at the back, complete with Infratech heaters, ocean views, speaker system, and a sectional couch and chairs as well as a built-in woodburning fireplace. An outdoor kitchen area is equipped with a grill, sink, mini-fridge, and ice maker, and nearby, a spacious, heated outdoor dining area with a table that seats eight and romantic string lights.
The grotto-style Jacuzzi is adjacent to the patio, and four steps lead down to the enormous ocean-view pool deck and the saltwater lap pool. A stone path lined with tropical greenery and birds of paradise leads to a large teepee on its own deck and a bocce court.
The grounds also include a surf locker, covered parking for two cars and generous guest parking, a storage shed, a raised-bed vegetable garden, beach rights, and various lawns for play and picnics. Equipped with multizone air conditioning, security cameras, an alarm system, and all the nearby benefits of shopping, dining, and beaches, this Point Dume getaway is a year-round tropical oasis.
