6959 Dume Drive, Malibu, CA, 90265
Exceptionally private, with lots of room to spread out, this central Point Dume home enjoys abundant natural light and appealing mid-century style. In addition to the bright, open, main house, the gated property of approximately 1.19 acres has a guest house, swimming pool, koi pond, raised-bed herb garden, canyon and ocean views, and plenty of space for casual, indoor-outdoor entertaining.
The single-level main house has high, beamed ceilings, many skylights, and reclaimed hardwood floors throughout, with wraparound windows and multiple sets of French doors. The spacious living room has a fireplace flanked by long counters with a beverage cooler, doors that open onto the central patio, and views of the pool and ocean. The open-plan kitchen/dining/family great room is inviting and comfortable. The ocean-view kitchen has an island with bar seating, Carrara marble countertops, and quality appliances. The adjacent dining area shares a double-sided fireplace with the family room, which has French doors to the backyard.
The home’s three en-suite bedrooms share the styling of the main living areas, with beamed ceilings, skylights, and distressed hardwood floors. The primary suite has ocean views, a walk-in closet, a skylight bath, and French doors to the backyard. The main house also has a powder room and a laundry room.
An expansive lawn separates the home from the new guest house with its rustic barnwood exterior and adjacent grotto swimming pool and entertaining deck. Like the main house, the guest house is bright and open, with a skylight, plank walls and ceilings and wood floors. It has a full kitchen with bar seating, a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and a loft, which could be an office/studio/yoga space or additional bedroom.
Planted with palms, birds of paradise and other tropical flora, the ocean-view backyard is enormous, with many options for relaxation, recreation, and entertaining, including indoor-outdoor sound. There is a lighted, oak-shaded dining patio near the house, a box garden and tool shed, a barbecue, hammock, and swing, a large swimming pool and spa with a waterfall, an outdoor shower, and a spacious wood deck with another dining table and views of the canyon, ocean, Channel Islands, and magnificent sunsets. At the front of the house, in addition to the two-car garage, there is another deck and a large koi pond with a waterfall. Potential option for a beach key. Please call the agent for details.
