With dramatic beach, whitewater, and ocean views, this beachfront modern architectural home is situated on a 50-foot-wide lot in Malibu’s exclusive and celebrity-favored Broad Beach. Michael Rachlin, the prominent L.A. architect behind the renovation of Los Angeles City Hall, has designed soaring high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, gallery-like walls, and voluminous, open-plan living spaces which provide a fresh canvas for both large-scale and intimate entertaining.
One of the most spectacular hallmarks of this 6,926-square-foot luxury residence with a stand-alone guest house and garage is that the entire third floor of the primary residence is devoted to a primary suite with 17-foot high windows and a large separate space for a study, office, yoga, and gym. The primary features a large private, oceanfront deck with an outdoor shower, a comfortable seating area around a fire pit, a second area with chaise lounges, and a third area plumbed for a hot tub. Overall, 3,000 square feet of decking allows for an indoor-outdoor connection on every floor, including an indoor-outdoor party room opening to an infinity-edged pool with a swim jet. Ocean views are maximized.
A stand-alone guest house features a bedroom, two full baths, an open living area, and a kitchen with an ample terrace to enjoy breathtaking ocean views while sunbathing, exercising, socializing, and BBQ dining. Great as a separate home, a luxury executive office suite, or simply private quarters for a spacious gym, sound studio, home theater, or remote learning area.
This oceanfront home is built into the Trancas Cove bluff with its pool level and residential floors each more than 23 feet above sea level – a comforting feature not enjoyed by many other Broad Beach homes. Additional features include a glass front elevator, terraced gardens, a 3-car garage with room for 3 more cars on the driveway, space for a significant wine cellar, and a cement basement to store paddleboards, windsurfers, and additional sports gear.
The residence embodies the relaxed, luxury lifestyle of Broad Beach, offers direct access to the sand and surf with four (4) miles of daily beach walking on the beach from Lechuza Point to Point Dume, while located just minutes from Malibu’s acclaimed dining, Trancas Country Market, scenic trails in the Santa Monica Mountains and top-rated public schools.
