Sometimes you see a house so dramatic that all you want to do is click away on your cell phone. I’m talking Instagram effects, panorama, and HDR….everything you can throw at it. I did just that when I saw this Ed Niles modern home for sale while out on the Malibu Realtor’s caravan this morning.
The home is offered for $7,995,000 and is in one of the most remote sections of the Malibu Hills you can (maybe) find. A good GPS will get you there. It’s primarily made up of glass, steel, and clad in custom aluminum panels. It feels like a German car manufacture’s hip design studio.
The home has enormous views of Boney Mountain that tower over a large valley of interesting red rock features and native chaparral. It also has big ocean views and soaring walls of glass that make each wall look like a OLED tv screen with the Nature Channel HD turned on.
Call for a showing if you love Ed Niles and love being away from it all. 310 699 8428
From the MLS… “A gated drive leads to a 17-acre knoll protected by the Santa Monica mountains and enhanced with glimpses of the Pacific and Channel Islands.This linear, steel-framed, steel-clad structure takes cues from the heroic rock escarpment facing it. Two paired rows of columns march down the 200-foot-long sides, with a pitched glass lantern running the length of the house. “Cylinders contain twin bedrooms at the north end and the master suite at the south; at the center lies bowed living-dining room, with study, kitchen, and family room occupying the intermediate areas.” An entertaining deck sprawls out from the center living areas and overlooks the pool in the greensward. Below it is a studio or guest house. Another, unfinished studio lies below the the berm of lawn adjacent. Steps lead to a private heli pad. A property not for the faint of heart. (Quotations from Michael Webb’s “House Design, Edward R. Niles.)”
