A breathtaking gated estate and tropical sanctuary on more than two acres of ocean-view property. A long manicured and palm-lined drive leads to the Mediterranean-style villa and a welcoming fountain courtyard. Here a covered porch opens to a gracious foyer, where the home’s character, style, and quality are immediately apparent: high wood-beamed ceilings, arched doorways and windows, and beautiful hardwood floors. To the right, the chandelier dining room features a bar with a granite counter, and a round bay of windows with ocean views. Step down to the carpeted formal living room with fireplace, where leaded glass French doors look out onto a gorgeous patio for al fresco dining. The patio continues down a few steps to another patio area and to a putting green watched over by four enormous Buddhas. Off the dining area is the spectacular gourmet island kitchen with expansive wood cabinetry, tile countertops, high-end appliances, a butler’s pantry, and a breakfast bar. There is also an intimate seating area with a bay of ocean-view windows and a floating flat screen TV. The kitchen continues into a spacious carpeted family room, which has a fireplace and doors onto a deck with a barbecue island and steps down to a patio for dining. From the entrance, a leaded glass door opens to a hallway lined with bookshelves, where there is a handsome library/office and a full bathroom. This level also includes a powder room and coat closet. Downstairs there are three bedrooms, a large laundry room, a generous storage area, and an additional storage closet. The owner’s retreat features a fireplace, desk area, large custom closets, and a luxurious bathroom with beautiful tile floors, a spa tub plus a shower stall, double sink vanity, and a bay of windows looking out onto tropical gardens. From the bedroom area, French doors open onto a large deck with steps down to a fully equipped, mirrored and carpeted gym, a sauna, and a metal tub with an ice machine for cold soaking. There is garage parking for two cars. A magnificent resort-style residence for living and entertaining in true Malibu style.
