A perfect beachfront setting on a private road off Pacific Coast Highway puts this romantic contemporary residence front and center for sweeping views of the ocean, islands, and coastline from Point Dume to the sparkling lights of the Queen’s Necklace.

With a mid-century architectural pedigree and impeccable updates by Studio Bracket, the home is spacious, light-filled, and beautifully designed for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. High, beamed ceilings, ocean-facing walls of glass, wood floors, fireplaces indoors and out, plus exquisite interiors by Steven Gambrel and artisan Venetian plaster work by Rex Pratt create an atmosphere of tranquil refuge by the sea.

At the front of the house, a private, gated courtyard with sensational landscaping by Scott Shrader welcomes visitors and provides a quiet setting for conversation and contemplation. The home’s interior, with timeless architectural details, puts the focus on comfort and views.

On the main floor, there is a gorgeous formal living room with a fireplace and a full wall of ocean-facing glass doors that open to an oceanfront deck for entertaining, al fresco dining, and whale watching. The adjacent kitchen is a culinary triumph, with quartzite countertops, island with bar seating, top-of-the-line appliances, including a Lacanche double oven, generous custom cabinetry with imported English hardware, a butler’s pantry, and a wonderful built-in dining nook with accordion windows that open completely to the oceanfront deck. Also on the main level is a lovely den/media room with built-in shelves, an office space, and a private side deck, perfect for yoga or afternoon tea. Gated steps from this deck lead to the sandy beach below.

Upstairs, three en-suite bedrooms include the romantic primary, which enjoys panoramic views from inside and from the private lounging deck, which has an outdoor fireplace and Jacuzzi. The suite has a luxurious sitting area, a spacious walk-in closet with custom fixtures, and a spa-style bath with an extra-deep soaking tub and skylight.

With approximately 50 feet of beach frontage, the home has a two-car garage plus additional guest parking and numerous features for safety and comfort, including home security, custom sound, air conditioning, heated bathroom floors, Waterworks fixtures, and much more. A home of rare quality in an ideal Central Malibu setting.
