Includes LaCosta Beach Club access! Amazing ocean and mountain views in Malibu from this authentic and beautiful Mediterranean Malibu estate that would be at home in France, Italy, or Spain, is beautifully proportioned with spectacular mountain and ocean views of Surfrider Beach, Point Dume, and Santa Monica Bay, and is perfectly situated to enjoy both the sunrise and sunset. The enchantment of the home and mature landscaping surrounding the property beckon from a European holiday, yet it's an easy commute to Santa Monica or LA, being located in Eastern Malibu, close to Soho House, Nobu, beaches, schools, and shops. The house comes with access membership to La Costa Beach Club and tennis courts. An enchanting open floorplan boasts five bedrooms, many of which lead to the adjacent, tree-lined courtyards through tall French doors, plus two attached guest offices or bedroom suites. Romantic finishes and tall ceilings throughout, tall windows of sun-filled glass from the living and dining rooms feature the vast ocean views over Carbon Beach and the custom solid wood cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms offer warmth and charm and well-placed utility for an indoor/outdoor flow. Wolf stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and double copper sinks in the kitchen overlooking the pool and courtyard. The beautiful wall sconces offer a subtle and calming evening light that leads to the upstairs, primary bedroom suite that has endless ocean views of Point Dume and Catalina, plus a private, attached office or sitting area facing the ocean and roof-top deck area. You can live off the land here with avocados, bananas, oranges, and other fruit trees, plus a vegetable garden. There are wonderful decks on each level of the home and multiple places to sit for reflection and contemplation while viewing the mountains and the sea. The ocean-view backyard area has a large sun-drenched lawn and a beautiful pool, entertainment deck areas, and an outdoor kitchen, plus a special, very private area overlooking both the ocean and the Santa Monica mountains. The home is fully fenced and gated and has an upper and a lower driveway, there is parking for at least 10 cars, and as you enter the double gates from the upper entrance, you are greeted by an authentic meditation labyrinth to remind you that home is where the heart is. There is an entire home and landscape fire deterrent system and a backup gas-powered generator. Currently owned by film producers, the house was featured in a cover story in PEOPLE MAGAZINE when it was previously owned by country music star, Kenny Chesney, (It's also sometimes referred to as the "GET SHORTY house" since scenes from the Gene Hackman/John Travolta/Danny DeVito movie were shot here.) Quote from the owners: "A classical Mediterranean house that you might expect to find in Mallorca or the Italian Riviera but we found right here in Malibu, where you can view the sunrises and sunsets and the mountains and the sea and the magical play of light between them. We toured 70 houses in Malibu over a year and a half before we found the one we loved. When I heard the sound of the antique fountain in the Spanish courtyard, I was transported to Spain. I will always love and miss -- the fig trees, avocados, pomegranates, and tangerines."
