Malibu, California: The land of sun, surf, and celebrities. Living in this exclusive area is a far-fetched fantasy for many (especially when you take the sky-high property prices into account), but that doesn’t mean you can’t dream. And this property in the heart of Malibu—renovated by supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber—is definitely something out of a dream. Malibu’s sun-soaked strip of California has one more breathtaking beachfront home for sale, and this one is a must-see.
The compound, built in 1944, was renovated by Crawford and Gerber over the last year. The modern updates they’ve made, including soaking tubs, modern kitchen appliances, and floor-to-ceiling windows, have turned this home into a true escape.
The open-concept layout of the main floor means all the living spaces are connected, both with each other and with that panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. The furniture exemplifies relaxed coastal design with natural textures and colors that complement the water outside, seen through windows that can almost completely disappear, letting in all the fresh air and sunlight anyone could ask for.
The flow of the home keeps everything simple and easy-going, just like life at the beach should be. The home’s interior is completely open, but that doesn’t mean this home is public: The two-story building is kept private and secluded by its three acres of manicured verdure, so its closest neighbors are the sea creatures swimming by.
The kitchen has been completely modernized, with a classic white subway tile backsplash, a gas range, and a long breakfast bar. Best of all, being in the kitchen doesn’t mean you’re missing out on a water view, because the kitchen has its own set of doors out onto the porch that wraps around the house.
Perched on a small rise above the water, this house has a private path down to the beach, as well as an in-ground pool and a fire pit. The 4-bedroom, 5-and-a-half-bath property has 5,254 square feet. The stunning property has been listed for a neat $60 million—a pretty price for a pretty home.
The property is co-listed by Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency. See their full listings, with more images and information, here and here.
