Glorious Oceanfront Hideaway In Malibu, $10MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 32802 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu
What: A simple and beautifully-crafted 3-bed, 5-bath beachfront hideaway by Laura Hanson Design, austere in the best possible way and open to the ocean view.
Constructed in 2007 on the footprint of an older house, Hanson kept the site’s mature landscaping, still beautifully framing the view of the Pacific Ocean, plus the irreplaceable high hedges for privacy. Only the long capsule-shaped pool and patio remain from the earlier structure.
In the main living space, a 36-foot motorized wall of glass slides open to the patio, creating a perfect venue for lounging and entertaining.
What We Love: The oceanview rain shower (at top and below) in the master suite.
