Perched high on the hillside where land meets the sea, above the highly sought-after Carbon Beach (famously known as “Billionaire’s Beach”) resides “Villa Splendido” that like a rare work of art, is both sexy and sleek. Tucked away in one of the most prestigious seaside communities in the world, this exclusive, architectural wonder located just miles away from the infamous Hollywood Hills and iconic City of Angels is truly a treasure to be seen as it transcends time with a breathtaking aesthetic reflective of the spirit of indulgence and vast views spanning from the Queen’s Necklace to Point Dume.
An enchanting estate that sits (approximately 473 ft. above sea level) in total harmony with its surroundings, this desirable enclave that’s seemingly situated just steps from the sand features the finest quality and craftsmanship throughout, with privacy and proximity at the forefront of what could easily be considered one of the most magical places on Earth. Adding to the allure is a vibrant energy and prolific design by award-winning architect Douglas Burdge, who’s meticulous attention to detail effortlessly marries the most sought-after elements of luxury lifestyle with modern living, resulting in a stylish beach abode that’s urban and sophisticated, yet delicate and refined, bringing the vision to life in a distinctly different way.
Featuring a private drive accessible from the legendary Pacific Coast Highway, this secluded, seaside delight delivers a dual-gated entry that leads to an inviting, tropical oasis which sets the stage with organic, native landscaping and a commanding entrance conducive to both relaxation and recreation, which makes for a mansion that’s much more than your typical modern masterpiece, but an exquisite experience that enhances the idyllic Malibu location.
Envision your own piece of paradise with panoramic ocean and mountain views spanning over 17-acres that embodies the feel of a fairytale written just for you and will make even your wildest dreams come true with the most stunning sunrise and sunset views. The grand entrance draws you in with a runway-inspired drive that’s dramatically lit like a Broadway stage and boasts an expansive parking area designed to accommodate nearly a dozen luxury vehicles, making it the epitome of “arriving in style.” The gracious front door immediately welcomes you in, opening up to reveal a sublimely scenic, 180-degree ocean view that’s almost surreal and features disappearing walls that boast the innate ability to bring the outside in, with just the push of a button to create the ultimate alfresco backdrop for quintessential Malibu living at its finest.
Open spaces dominate the design flow of the entire residence, where every room becomes like a story, each evoking a particular mood and feeling with state-of-the-art technology designed with optimal comfort in mind. Minimal, yet fluid styles and bespoke, neutral color palettes flow effortlessly through fully-furnished and luxuriously-appointed rooms each boasting sweeping views and en suite bathrooms that boast oversized marble showers with delicately-sketched, inlay heart patterns.
Elements of modern luxury and European elegance are ever-present, not just in the details of the exquisite furnishings throughout, but in each touchpoint around every turn with a dedicated balance of both classical and contemporary decor from the “James-Bond” inspired office on the main level all the way to the stand-alone guesthouse that comes fully-loaded with all the essentials that one could ever need, which might make your visitors never want to leave.
Hallmarks of the estate include breathtaking panoramas framed by floor-to-ceiling windows in almost every room, an internal elevator for optimal comfort and ease, an outdoor infinity pool with a swim-up bar that only serves to enhance an expansive outdoor culinary station complete with a pizza oven, multiple fire pits, and a full BBQ. Other notable mentions include modern “mood-lighting” throughout with customizable colors to match your every mood, a dedicated entertainment area equipped with a billiards table and fully-stocked bar that seats up to 10. The adjacent state-of-the-art wellness center accompanies this very unique space with a marvelous massage area, generously-sized sauna and steam room, workout facility and spa-like jacuzzi with overhead skylights that let the natural light shine through.
