Listing of the Day
Location: Malibu, California
Price: $27.75 million
Tucked in the hills of Malibu with 270-degree views of the Santa Monica Bay, this villa takes its cue from Mediterranean country estates, said listing agent Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker.
Beyond the long, lavender-lined drive, La Vie en Rose, as it’s known, creates a grand impression just from its facade, with its Alaskan cedar trellises, French oak shutters, copper planters filled with pink geraniums, black-lacquered windows, and terracotta roof tiles—all of which seem to be lifted straight from the South of France rather than Southern California.
This 10,135-square-foot home has five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and one half-bathroom.
The Design Pedigree
Designed to have the look and feel of a Mediterranean country estate, the home features roomy interiors and authentic accents. The entry foyer showcases 22.5-foot oak-coffered ceilings and book-matched stairs, which set an elevated tone. Throughout the rooms, finishes and accents include aged French-oak floors, thick mahogany doors and rustic hand-troweled plaster walls, and antique terracotta tile reclaimed from Provence. “The home was designed and built with impeccable attention to detail, symmetry and authenticity,” Mr. Cortazzo said.
Grounds here go way beyond run-of-the-mill flowerbeds. Here, you’ll find an outdoor oasis with 2,000 rose bushes, an orchard consisting of Hass avocados, Mexican limes, tangerines, Eureka lemons, tangelos, and grapefruits, fruiting olives, a vegetable and herb garden, as well as raspberry and blackberry bushes, and a beehive with honey on tap. Additionally, there’s a 75-foot infinity pool with waterfalls as well as a bocce court.
Set amid 2.7 acres of landscaped grounds, the idyllic property is located just west of Los Angeles, some 10 minutes from downtown Malibu and area beaches and parks.
