As the cold and windy months of winter continue on, so do most people’s daydreams about leaving on a warm and tropical paradise getaway. La Villa Contenta, located amid the beautiful white sand beaches of Malibu, would be a perfect daydream-come-true.
This beautiful 16,107 square feet, 3-storey property is a work of art in itself, as it was inspired by Mediterranean architecture with hints of Roman, Italian and French design. The entrance way to Main Villa, for example, includes a staircase leading to a 2-story limestone entry into a foyer decorated with hand-laid pietra-dura mosaic flooring. Hung on the wall is a mirror carved by the craftsmanship of Thomas Chipendale, which reflects a sculpture of a lion’s head.
The list of remarkable features inside La Villa Contenta is long and creates envy-inducing thoughts: 10 bedroom, 14 bathrooms, dining room, library, kitchen, billiards room, wine cellar, screening room, fully-equipped gym, home theatre, art studio, dozens of outdoor seating areas and gardens, rose garden, outdoor pools including 25 meter infinity pool with attached kitchen, tennis court, spa, garden kitchen, ballroom with indoor pool, green house, office, guest house and staff quarters. Entertaining yourself or family and friends will come with ease in this home.
Whether you are in the mood to relax and read a book in the library surrounded by groined vault ceilings and a fireplace made of Hermés marble, or have a meal with friends in the dining room large enough to host 24 people, La Villa Contenta will satisfy. The rustic-style kitchen is adorned with reclaimed 18th century floors and features a stone fireplace, perfect for a professional chef or home cook.
Encompassing this grand home is approximately 6.3 acres of gardens and magnificent unobstructed vistas of the ocean, where you will find yourself blissfully lost in your own tropical paradise. Imagine, going for a few laps in the indoor pool, while indulging in the beautiful Murano glass tile and gesso mural that was painted by hand. Rather catch some sun rays outside? The outdoor pool has just as much to offer, along with a patio and gigantic lawn for outdoor sports. Situated beside the Pacific Ocean, this property features breathtaking and unobstructed panoramic landscapes. This scenery, underneath the bluest of skies, portrays an incredible getaway from civilization.
