Behind gates in Malibu Colony, this very private beachfront home is a delicious blend of gracious design, beautiful details, and tremendous views. At the entry, a walled courtyard of patterned red brick features a raised patio for al fresco dining by day or by candlelight. The theme of comfortable entertaining continues throughout the home, with an easy open-plan layout, exceptionally high ceilings, glossy blond flooring, and wide windows and doors that give way to decks, balconies, and ocean vistas. The chef’s kitchen is sleek and luminous, with clerestory windows, a lovely breakfast/lunch dining area, high-end appliances, and a 10-foot wood-topped island with bar seating. The spacious family/media room, dining area, and gorgeous living room look out at the ocean and open to a large brick patio for dining and entertaining as well as a wood platform deck for lounging and sunbathing just above the surf. There are two en-suite bedrooms on the main level and a spiral staircase winds up to the second level, where the stunning master suite features a sitting area, office area, and a private oceanfront deck, as well as dual bathrooms, double walk-in closets, and non-stop views. Another en-suite bedroom, accessed by way of a stairway at the entry, faces serene Malibu mountain vistas. A peaceful sanctuary in a terrific Malibu location.
