With a sweeping bird’s-eye view over distant trees and rooftops, and an expansive panorama of the ocean and sparkling lights of the Queen's Necklace, this Malibu Mediterranean contemporary residence is designed for sophisticated entertaining and casual relaxation. The open plan layout combines architectural materials, such as tile flooring and vanishing walls, with classic detailing, such as handsomely carved mantels and cabinetry. A welcoming two-story entry reveals the home’s gorgeous sightlines, a U-shaped mezzanine, and a huge skylight over the central hallway. The dramatic double-height living room, with fireplace and interior Juliet balcony, leads to the pool-side formal dining room. The ocean-view chef's kitchen, with large island, granite countertops, eat-in counter, walk-in pantry, breakfast area, and top-grade appliances opens to an enormous family/great room with fireplace, wet bar, and a large window-wall that extends the space onto the adjacent patio. A powder room and maid’s/guest room with full bath complete this level. On the upper floor, the magnificent ocean-view master suite has very high ceilings, a fireplace with a seating area, dual walk-in closets, a lavish master bath, and a wrought iron balcony overlooking the backyard and the ocean. There are three additional family bedrooms on this level, including one that could be a second master. With lush and peaceful landscaping, and many mature trees, the property includes a very private large pool and spa, recently resurfaced, and spacious hardscape, a small garden and lawn, a terraced slope with built-in steps, and an ocean-view entertainment area with pebble floor, fountain, fireplace, and plenty of room for al fresco dining and cocktails beneath the stars. There is a three-car garage plus room for an additional six cars in the driveway. This is a private retreat of exceptional quality that is close to everything that Malibu has to offer.
