In a tranquil, private setting of mature trees and expansive ocean views, this gated Malibu residence is beautifully detailed for comfort and relaxed enjoyment. A contemporary open plan, with walls of windows, pitched ceilings with exposed beams, and bamboo floors create the luminous, welcoming atmosphere of a retreat. Indonesian gates open onto a large, gently terraced front yard with a waterfall stream that cascades into a series of pools near the courtyard entry. The living room, with a fireplace, exposed beams, and clerestory light, looks out on this serene setting and opens onto a wood deck. The spacious dining room also has a fireplace and opens to the living room on one side and an ocean-view family room with a large deck for dining, entertaining, and lounging. Off the family room is an ocean-view office and steps leading up to an ocean-view, en-suite guest/maid’s room with a deck. The magnificent kitchen, also with an ocean view and adjacent deck, has an island, granite countertops, high-end appliances, and handsome dark wood cabinetry with generous storage. Completing the ground floor are two bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs is the owner’s suite, with ocean views, a fireplace, an ocean-view bath with a soaking tub, closet with built-ins, and a deck to savor the views. A detached one-bedroom guest house has a small kitchen and a sitting area. In addition to a two-car garage, a long driveway at the side of the house offers ample space for guest parking. There is an enormous lawn at the back of the house, with ocean views and room for a pool. A home of warmth, character, and exceptional quality.
