A magnificent ocean-view great room flanked on two sides by walls of glass suggest a lifestyle of ease and sophistication in this distinguished Point Dume estate. The bespoke architectural vision of Marmol Radziner highlights the expansive space with mid-century restraint and exquisite finishes. The home is built on a single level to take advantage of remarkable sightlines and generous settings for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
The front of the property is defined by a gated drive and then by a separate pedestrian gate. This leads to a large, private, beautifully landscaped and lighted patio, complete with an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and comfortable seating. The patio enjoys enchanting views of the ocean that reach through the dual glass walls of the great room.
This grand interior space, with high, beamed ceilings and wide-plank wood floors, is breathtaking in scale and modernist grace. At one end, a long, well-outfitted wet bar and island with bar seating offer an ideal hub for circulating guests at a cocktail party. Next to the bar is an open dining area, and beyond that, a large and flexible living area. At the end of the room, a beautiful modern brick fireplace is offset by display shelving with a library ladder, plus a concealed television cabinet.
The kitchen extends from the bar end of the great room, where it enjoys views of both the ocean and the front yard. Beautiful finishes, expansive cabinets, and top-quality appliances are designed to please the most demanding chef.
Four wide glass doors from the ocean-facing great room open onto the partially covered back patio, where there is a small Zen garden, a firepit, comfortable seating, ample room for dining, and spectacular views of the ocean and the Channel Islands.
The home’s four bedrooms, one currently used as an en-suite media room, include a peaceful primary retreat complete with fireplace, built-in nightstands, walk-in closet, sliding glass doors to the backyard, and a stone-clad spa-style bath that opens onto a charming private patio with an outdoor shower.
Additional features of this impressive residence include a two-car garage with a commercial refrigerator plus driveway parking for four cars; a laundry room with sleek built-ins; heated floors; air conditioning; drip irrigation; and a variety of smart-home systems. With exceptional privacy and expansive views, this Point Dume home is a rare achievement.
