With luscious design influences of Morocco, Bali, Thailand, and Spain, this ultra-private blufftop Point Dume estate is a modern Moroccan villa and garden sanctuary. One of Malibu's most coveted addresses, the 1.1-plus acre property has a long celebrity pedigree, tranquil gardens, huge trees, and every enchantment for memorable indoor-outdoor entertaining. Set behind Balinese gates, the main entrance leads past statuesque pines and a grotto pond to a circular motorcourt where a slender stone tower and recumbent crescent roof detailing offer the first suggestion of the home's singular design. Inside, the evidence of a discerning eye and extraordinary skill is everywhere: beamed cathedral ceilings, arched and keyhole doorways, latticed-screen window treatments, and imported and handcrafted fixtures, features, and materials, including teak, oak, and tile. The main living areas, most of the bedrooms, and the peaceful backyard face onto a spectacle of ocean, islands, and the twinkling lights of the Queen's Necklace. With wraparound windows and large-tile floors, the living room features a sunken conversation pit with a Frank Zappa signature serpent mosaic in the floor, a fireplace, a high cathedral window, and glowing Moroccan light fixtures, also from Frank Zappa. The adjacent dining room, with a gorgeous coffered ceiling, and a window-wrapped sunroom both open to the back patio. The jewel-tone island kitchen, with its vaulted ceiling, skylight, and adjoining sitting/family room, is equipped for the serious chef and detailed with lighted cabinets and imported finishes. Off the kitchen is a laundry room and maid's quarters. Up the antique stairs is a mezzanine-level library. The primary suite is an ocean-view sanctuary complete with a fireplace, a separate sitting area, a deep walk-in closet, a Moorish-style tiled bath with indoor-outdoor shower, and a tiled deck that overlooks the backyard and the ocean panorama. There are four additional bedrooms, each with the home's signature design elements, plus a loft and a tower room outfitted as a private office with beautiful painted wood, vaulted ceilings, ocean views, and long, narrow windows. There is also a bonus/playroom, accessed by a secret door, and a storage area in the basement. The expertly maintained grounds feature a swimming pool of Turkish design with handmade tiles, a blufftop gazebo perfect for coffee, cocktails, and al fresco dining, a separate gazebo in the front yard, a two-car garage with driveway parking for a dozen cars, a separate gardener's entrance, and an abundance of specimen trees, including pines, citrus, peach, apricot, apple, and plum. The home is updated with a brand-new security system. Comfort and grandeur add up to an incomparable residence of legacy quality and rare beauty.
