Maximal minimalism: a cliffside Malibu home lists for $21.75M

The contemporary California ranch home, Malibu Edition: located bluff-top with views of Point Dume, this mesmericly minimal renovated ranch home checks all the boxes from location, landscaping, acreage, Style with a capital “S,” and intimate, yet just the right amount of, interior square footage; this home allows you to spend beaucoup bucks for that easy, breezy, ‘I woke up like this’ coconut water and athleisure induced glow.

Once past the gated, thick, verdant hedge, the crunch, crunch, crunch of decomposed granite—my favorite exterior landscape material—the smell of surf spray, blooming California natives, an effortless, artistically minded ecosystem anchored by a completely renovated, winged ranch home ringed by lavender and agaves.

Inside, the entire center portion of the home is devoted to the light, airy great room, a room where you can lounge fireside, a room to enjoy Thanksgiving for decades, a room of clean white oak cabinetry and walls of glass allowing endless views out over the Pacific. Would you ever close those enormous sliders? I don’t think I could ever have the heart—this house demands a constant breeze contact with the out of doors.

The master bedroom, the airiest of airy white spaces, commands a view out over the massive lawn to the ocean—what a way to greet the day!

The backyard, a true clifftop romance complete with a boardwalk, allows for prime sunbathing and view relishing, and, yet, there seems to be something amiss—where is the pool? If that’s all the matter, there’s nothing 100 grand won’t fix. Even without the pool, this home is a fantasy, plus there’s a bocce ball court and a separate, secluded air-conditioned office—this home is just begging for me, or any writer, really, to call it home! What a place to rest-up, recharge, and pursue your passions.

28868 Cliffside Drive, a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,273 square foot home located on 1.01 acres, is currently listed by Christopher Cortazzo & Kevin Augunas of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
