When you think about it, there is a certain genius to placing the paired-down simplicity of a Swedish Barn in Malibu, one of California’s most expensive stretches of real estate. Gone are your typical visions of the red-tile-roofed Mediterranean villas and swaying palms. Gone are the weathered clapboards of your Cape Cods. And as for your sleek, glass-filled contemporaries? Well, let’s just say all of your pre-conceived ideas of a typical Malibu beach house fade into the distance as you set your eyes on this architectural wonder currently on the market.  One look and you know every detail about it has been meticulously planned.

From its “smart home” construction and design to its impeccable interiors, the property offers sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, five bedrooms and six baths. The high-ceiling living room offers glass French doors that open to an expansive balcony with beautiful panoramas of the sea. The professional chef’s kitchen with dumbwaiter opens to an outdoor, heated sitting area with fireplace that transition to the pool and spa. The large master bedroom with fireplace has a private balcony and sitting area with fire pit. The master bath is finished off with an eloquently designed dressing room. With two state-of-the-art home theater rooms and outdoor putting green, batting cage and soccer area, you might say it’s the perfect family home or a weekend getaway…but would you dare say it’s one of the jewels of Malibu?  There is truly nothing like it in Malibu, after all…

Of course, it’s impossible to pin one architectural style on a place like Malibu, where creativity and wealth flow as freely as the tide. But this impeccably designed home gives you a new picture of simple, modern, easy and yet totally luxurious living in a place only a few are fortunate to call home.
