Formerly owned for three decades by the late actor Carroll O’Connor and his wife, documentary filmmaker Nancy Fields O’Connor—and most recently rented for the holiday season by fashion designer Marc Jacobs—this Malibu estate in the coveted Broad Beach area has been completely redone from top to bottom by AD100 designer Michael Lee. The ultimate outcome? A lavish Moroccan-style residence that masterfully pairs chic environs with an inviting coastal ambiance, and throws in a pleasing mix of modern conveniences for good measure.
“This beach home offers style, elegance and unique amenities that rarely come together, especially at this price,” says Madison Hildebrand, who shares the listing at 30826 Broad Beach Road with Jennifer Chrisman, both with The Malibu Life Team at Compass, for $15.5 million. Situated on a deep, sandy lot with more than 40 feet of beach frontage, the four-bedroom dwelling was originally built in 1974 and fully restored in 2018. Expect contemporary and rustic touches alike throughout the two-level home’s 3,600-plus square feet of reimagined interiors, complete with soaring ceilings; attractive tile and wide-plank hardwood flooring; designer lighting and hardware; and smart-home and solar energy systems.
For auto enthusiasts, a three-car garage has been updated with high-end storefront glass doors and Tesla charging stations, while additional highlights include a resort-style master retreat with views of the famed Zuma Beach, professional chef’s kitchen, and central courtyard bedecked with a stunning Moorish-shaped pool.
