Listing of the Day
Location: Malibu, California
Price: $69.5 million
This five-bedroom, modern house is located in the Case, a residential community in Malibu with only four other newly built homes—all designed and developed by Scott Gillen, who bought the 24 acres where the community stands for $50 million in 2017.
“The privacy and security that the community offers combined with the quality of construction set it apart,” said listing agent Tyrone McKillen. “The Cantilever House feels like a private sanctuary, the architecture blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living, which make for an idyllic living experience.”
Gillen dubbed this home the Cantilever House for its 25-foot deep cantilever roof, which extends over the ocean-facing patio to provide shade. It also reinforces the Mid-Century Modern style that inspired its design.
“Scott spent a lot of time thinking about how to give each house at the Case, which was inspired by mid-century architecture, its own unique personality,” McKillen said. “The home has incredible views that start with the surf breaking and extend to city lights in the distance. A cantilever roof perfectly frames this picturesque ocean view.”
The home is all on one level and the design seeks to blend the indoor and outdoor living spaces together. Inside, the living areas feature glass walls that embrace the surrounding nature and frame oceanfront views. Outdoors, the space includes landscaped gardens, expansive seating areas, an outdoor kitchen and a 100-foot infinity pool.
This home has more than 11,000 square feet of living space on 3.85 acres of land and there are five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two powder rooms.
Craftsmanship throughout the home ranges from its bespoke terrazzo floors to the 2,000-pound teak front door.
A gourmet chef’s kitchen features high-end appliances and there is also a temperature-controlled wine room.
The property has private access from Malibu Canyon Road. The neighborhood has private walking trails that wind across 24 acres and it’s close to Pepperdine University, Surfrider Beach and Malibu Lagoon. Premier shopping, dining and entertainment destinations in Malibu Country Mart and Malibu Colony are minutes away.
“The property is centrally located, offering the convenience of being just moments from Malibu’s best shopping and dining experiences,” McKillen said. “It’s one of the only sites in Malibu that offers views of downtown L.A. as well as Surfrider Beach, Palos Verdes and the entire Queens Necklace.”
