With unobstructed landscapes in the quiet, highly coveted Malaga Cove neighborhood overlooking Bluff Cove, the home offers unsurpassed serenity complementing magnificent vistas. Built in the classic Spanish-California style, yet with a modern floor plan, the L-shaped home captures majestic vistas from every room. At the entrance, the towering entry rotunda anchors the two wings of the home: the entertaining wing, where family and friends gather, and the family wing, which also includes a formal living room, a fantastic wet bar, and a garden room, a lovely and quiet space for reading while lounging amid ocean views via surrounding picture windows.

The large master suite has two balconies overlooking the ocean and includes a fireplace, large custom closet and en-suite bath. Travertine floors and tumbled travertine tiles in the bath, paired with a furniture-style vanity, give this space a timeless look. Adjacent to this space is an additional master suite, also with a balcony, and includes a private alcove with mirrored closet doors, created for a dressing or study room. The balance of the home’s bedrooms have private entrances, one with a waterfall and koi pond in a secret courtyard.  Soft white walls and classic Saltillo tile floors paired with arched windows and hallways add to the Mediterranean feel of the home. Multiple fireplaces with curved lines that blend into the walls like sculpture are sprinkled throughout, while varying coffered and beamed ceilings define different rooms yet simultaneously appear effortless and voluminous.
