Thatched pergolas, an abundance of tropical flora and an intimate setting backed up against the mountains will have you thinking Costa Rica or some other jungle locale, but this stunning post-and-beam property represents one of Malibu’s finest architectural homes. Built by none other than renowned architect John Lautner, the $15 million offering is less mid-century modern design than it is five-star resort.
The trophy home overlooks Malibu’s most coveted beach, Little Dume, and is enveloped in lush tropical landscaping that provides the perfect cover for the romantic haven. A primitive covered pathway leads the way to the one-acre summit, where the 3,650-square-foot home sits. Lined in luxuries, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home boasts heated sandstone floors, a chef’s kitchen and the Lautner-standard walls of glass, which enjoy sprawling ocean and mountain views. However, the property’s best features are clearly found outside the home, where the lush, one-acre grounds are punctuated with jungle gardens, a pebble-stone pool and an outdoor master steam room and rain shower. Last, but certainly not least, there’s even a place to drop anchor in the protected cove below.
