The former celebrity home located on El Matador Beach is the quintessential beach house, with loads of light, oceanfront decks, sandy beach, and non-stop views. Set on a private gated road just north of Broad Beach, this peaceful retreat is perfectly designed for casual living and indoor-outdoor entertaining. At the front of the house is an enclosed patio with a pergola, terra cotta tiles, and ample room for al fresco dining. Open the front door to the dramatic views highlighted by the home's plank and beam ceilings, hardwood floors, and generous use of glass. The entry steps down to the main living area, a spacious great room with living, dining, and kitchen all facing the ocean. The living area features a wall of built-in shelving, and a fireplace, while the kitchen has a two-level island with counter seating, granite countertops, pantry cabinets, and fine appliances, including a six-burner Wolf range with griddle. The great room has four sets of extra-wide sliding glass doors that open onto a full-width balcony over the sand with plenty of room for dining, entertaining, and sunset-watching. A courtyard office/media room/bedroom and a powder room complete the main floor. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including a tranquil owner's suite complete with fireplace, built-in storage, a bright, spa-style bath with glass blocks, Jacuzzi, and skylight, plus foldaway accordion doors onto a wraparound ocean-view lounging deck. Steps at the side of the house lead down to the sandy beach. The direct-access two-car garage offers additional storage space. The home is also equipped with a touch-pad alarm system. With convenient access to restaurants, shopping, award-winning schools, and hiking trails, this is Malibu beach living at its best.
