“Incredible,” “One-of-a-Kind,” “I feel like I’m in another country”… These were just a few of the statements heard at the broker’s open house in Malibu on Thursday. The Spanish-style villa, designed by Malibu’s own Michael Lee, sits above a dramatic coastal section of shoreline near El Matador Beach. Formally know as the Buddy Hacket home, Lee transformed the 60’s contemporary structure into a home that looked as though it came from the Basque coastline circa 1700’s! There is a seaside, stone amphitheater complete with stage thats sits above a shallow pool, a design from ancient Rome where scenes of naval warfare could be reenacted. There are modern elements, like the high-end freestanding tubs, set amongst reclaimed vintage wood and a minimalist kitchen with pantry separated by a salvaged barn-style sliding door. The exterior has large stone decks with whitewashed stone planters holding mature olive trees. You’ll even find hand hewn rock troughs with herbs, decorative terracotta vessels, and a small bathing terrace closer to the waves. If you are in the market for an exceptional home and can be qualify for the $19,000,000 price tag , contact me for a private showing. There is no other home in Malibu that will give you the feeling of being on vacation in another country!
