Malibu house description

Beauty and the Beach Malibu...

CRASHING WAVES are thrilling and calming both at this Malibu Beach villa just 6 miles to/from Santa Monica. Wake to the sounds of the surf and the sights of dolphins and pelicans at play with over 60' of beachfront viewed from EVERY room and much more privacy than most Malibu beach houses.

French doors open onto both a huge sundeck and glassed-in stone patio with beach entrance, built-in BBQ and koi ponds. Stunning, hand-carved teak throughout and Asian antiques distinguish this craftsman home with elegant simplicity and sophistication.

Walk on the sand at Topanga Beach, legendary for world-class surfing and wind sailing. Also convenient to a great selection of restaurants, boutique shopping, movies, health clubs and spas, plus gourmet and health food groceries in Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica's 3rd Street and the Los Angeles International Airport. There is off-street parking for up to 3 cars.

The Living Room features a cozy fireplace and oceanside dining area. A huge Master Suite with double-shower and ample closets is light and airy with antique glass skylights and a Sun/Sitting Room with floor-to-ceiling picture windows. A separate guest room with ocean views, flat-screen TV and private shower bath sleeps 2, and a convertible den with built-in beds comfortably sleeps 3 singles for a total of 7 overnight guests.

Further Details: Lots of closet space, flat screen TV's, built-in Fire Magic BBQ and don't miss the waterfall shower bathroom with stone floor and double sinks.

A garden wall with an authentic Japanese garden provides the utmost privacy. At-home chefs will delight in the kitchen with built-ins, including a sub-zero refrigerator/freezer, new dishwasher, range and microwave including more craftsman touches in hand-carved teak kitchen cabinets, wet bar and inset stone floor.
Complete with weekly maid service and gardener.

Children are very welcome but for the enjoyment of all our guests, we do not accept pets or smokers, inside or out. No exceptions! Thank you.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1981

                          About the owner: A former print and broadcast journalist, I coach executives to meet the media and face audiences in person at my company, READY FOR MEDIA. Owning a beach house which I like to share with visitors from around the world is a dream come true.

                          Why the Owner Chose Malibu:
                          Growing up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, I fell in love with living on the water. I recreated that for myself on the sands of Malibu Beach with its crashing waves, arching dolphins, stunning starfish and diving pelicans.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Unique for Malibu beachfront property is the Japanese zen garden entrance and the succulent garden patio. It's peaceful and exciting, both at once.
