Rare massive frontage of +/-80 ft in this custom home designed by esteemed architect Mark Appleton with interiors by Diane Johnson. A majestic oceanfront estate of rare privacy and captivating views, this distinguished La Costa Beach residence is both a luxurious retreat and an ideal setting for expansive entertaining. Traditional styling at its very best is on display throughout, with fully custom finishes and details complemented by the comforts most valued for today's lifestyle. Flanked by a pair of columns, the formal entry opens into a bright foyer with a fountain and beautiful harlequin-check floors of Spanish pillowed marble in Nero Marquina and Bianco Antico. The patterned floor continues into a stunning loggia that forms one side of a central courtyard, with more columns and coffered ceilings. The courtyard is a private treasure, sitting at the heart of the house, and complete with a zero-edge pool, Jacuzzi, waterfall, fireplace, gorgeous wet bar, and ample space for relaxing and entertaining. One wall of the courtyard vanishes entirely, opening to the living room, beachfront deck, and sensational views of the coastline, ocean, islands, and Queen's Necklace. The formal living room, with another fireplace and lustrous hand-scraped white oak, ebony-finished floors, opens fully to the courtyard on one side, the Ipe-wood deck on another, and the chandelier dining room on a third. The dining room is also open to the deck, which is perfectly situated for al fresco dining, barbecues, dolphin-watching, and stargazing. Off the dining room is the kitchen, a true chef's delight, with abundant counter and cabinet space, an enormous, two-part island with seating for eat-in meals, top-of-the-line appliances, a butler's pantry, and ocean views. The kitchen adjoins a spectacular sun room / family room, with built-in shelving and a wall of windows facing the ocean views. Also on the main level, there is an en-suite guest bedroom, a powder room, a large laundry room with catering dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, and sinks, a full bath, plus a mirrored gym. Private steps lead to the sands of La Costa Beach, with a convenient outdoor shower nearby. An elegant spiral staircase on an oval footprint is exquisitely detailed with a Chippendale design railing finished with many layers of hand applied lacquer. On the upper floor there are four en-suite bedrooms, including the primary suite, and a handsome den/office. The primary is simply beautiful, with high ceilings, hardwood floors, fireplace, sitting area, French doors to an oceanfront deck, and luxurious dual baths with custom mosaic marble, walk-in closets, and every comfort. The en-suite den/office/media room, with aged-finish plank ceiling and floors and a fireplace, has three sets of French doors opening to another ocean-view deck. Located on one of Malibu's most desirable stretches of beach, this elegant and luxurious residence is comfortable, convenient, and absolutely beautiful.
