Sleek lines, soaring ceilings, ocean views, and extensive use of natural wood and stone characterize this dramatic central Malibu architectural residence designed by Ellis Gelman. Gated and private, the approximately two-acre property features a family room and bedrooms on the ground floor, while the living, dining, and kitchen areas are located on the second story, with wraparound windows and a massive deck, which maximize the home's breathtaking ocean views. A separate structure includes a full bath and provides ample space for a guest apartment, office, or gym. The upper level features gorgeous, ultra-tall wood ceilings, art gallery walls, expansive view windows, a beautiful fireplace, slate floors, an oversized porthole window facing the ocean, and wide glass doors opening to an amazing deck that spans the entire ocean-facing length of the house. The chef's kitchen offers every top-quality amenity, loads of cabinet and counter space, bar seating, wine storage, and a comfortable seating area in the adjacent dining room. There is a powder room on this level, plus steps that lead up to a loft office with a row of north-facing skylight windows and another large porthole window that welcomes the sunrise. The four bedrooms and three full bathrooms on the lower level include a serene primary suite, complete with ocean views, fireplace, huge custom closet, and beautifully appointed spa-style bath. This level also includes a family room/media room/office with an attractive kitchenette, a wall of built-in cabinets, and a walk-in closet. At the front of the house, the long drive leads to a two-car garage, plus an adjacent guest apartment/office/gym with large windows, ocean views, and a full bath. The roomy front and back yards offer mature trees, a view patio, a lavender/rose garden, and ample space for guest parking and a swimming pool. With view decks and generous space for indoor/outdoor entertaining and recreation, this Malibu compound is a tranquil, inviting retreat.
