Coastal Mini-Compound a la Malibu

Drive around Malibu and you’ll see signs boasting its “27 miles of scenic beauty,” but there are few spots that capitalize on the area’s rugged coastline and pearly blue Pacific waters more skillfully than this contemporary beach home with separate guest house.

Originally built in 1955, and completely overhauled by prolific Malibu architect Doug Burdge, the mini-compound—spanning 5,033 square feet, with 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms—is situated along a secluded stretch of beach and features resort-style grounds bordered by poetic, old-growth trees.

Wood and glass are used amply, sculpting the structures into the surrounding landscape— vanishing pocket doors and floor-to-ceiling windows provide a gallery like experience to the blue sky panorama. An uncluttered living room, flush with views, is found on the ground floor of the main house, along with a fireplaced dining area and chef’s kitchen. Step outdoors, and there’s an oceanfront lounging deck and slender pool and spa. Head upstairs, and you’ll find much of the floor given over to a sprawling master suite surrounded by a wraparound deck.

Steps away, the guest house is stocked with ocean-view bedrooms, a sleek kitchenette and a media room—a standalone annex that puts forth all the extra room one might need without sacrificing the peaceful, self-contained luxury of life along the sunny California coast,
