Inside $28.5M Malibu Resort With Keys to Private Beach – Rob Report
A newly built mansion in one of Malibu’s most desirable neighborhoods recently went on the market for $28.5 million.
The oceanfront property sits on 2.25 acres with an ultra-contemporary designed home on 8,500 square feet. This elegant residence, designed by Doug Burdge of Burdge Architects, was developed by Charles Kotliar of CLR Design Group and took nearly three years to complete.
“It takes about seven years to get new construction in Malibu,” says listing agent Branden Williams of Beverly Hills Estates. “The permitting process can take four to five years, and then it takes three or four years to build. My client bought it when it was fully permitted, but then changed several plans around it, so they’ve been working on this piece for over 10 Years.
The modern, organic facility features clean lines and plenty of raw materials. It was designed using slab concrete for many of the exterior and interior walls, Roman plaster, many different types of wood, treated stone, and limestone pavers throughout. There are six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, plus a separate guest house.
You enter the property via a private gated driveway lined with native plants. The architectural entry is flanked by two reflection pools, a fire feature, and a floating walkway to access the 8′ x 10′ brass front door. You’ll instantly be treated to expansive ocean views as soon as you step inside. The main floor features an open-plan living room, a spacious chef’s kitchen, a dining room, and a glass-enclosed wine cellar, all of which connect to the backyard through sliding glass doors that disappear into the wall at the touch of a button.
“It has a beautiful west-facing view of the Pacific Ocean where you can enjoy stunning sunsets,” he says.
There’s a spacious master suite with two fireplaces, a walk-in closet, a private sundeck with a fire pit, and a resort-like bathroom with a freestanding tub overlooking the water. The additional en-suite bedrooms are quite impressive, have ample cupboard space, natural light and balconies. The home also has an office, gym, movie theater, seven fire features, a 20-car motor court and a three-car detached garage.
Outside there is a 70-foot infinity pool, expansive lawn, fire pit, covered outdoor kitchen and dining area, built-in barbecue and bar seating. From the backyard, there is highly sought-after access to a system of paths leading to the private Little Dome Beach, which boasts some of the best surfing in Malibu. Although not technically private by law, Little Dume is one of Malibu’s many hard-to-access beaches, with access restricted almost exclusively to Point Dume properties with official access to the trail system.
“It’s rare to have a large plot of land like this on two acres with views like this,” Williams says. “The area also offers an absolutely amazing lifestyle. Every celebrity, musician or tech person lives in Point Dume, and they feel really protected in the community. You’re close to Dume Village and have unique access to the best surf break in Malibu.”
Williams is co-listing the property with his wife and business partner, Rennie Williams, along with Chris Cortazzo of Compass.
