In July 2016, San Francisco-based Pacific Eagle Holdings set out to create a new luxury condominium community on a 10- acre site that previously served as home to the Villa Malibu rental property. The real estate management company’s goal was to offer homeowners the amenities of a luxurious resort with the ease of full-service condo ownership—all with an eye-catching price tag of less than $2 million.
Emerging on the transformed site, Cavalleri Malibu (cavallerimalibu.com) is a completely renovated collection of 68 two-story, three-story and penthouse homes, with the first two of four buildings set for completion in early 2017.
Designed by award-winning design firm Edmonds + Lee, also based in San Francisco, the classic Spanish revival-style residences start at $998,000 and range in size from 1,577 square feet to more than 2,200 square feet, with two to three bedrooms and two to three baths.
“Cavalleri is the only luxury product on the market at this price point, so it offers a great value to Malibu residents that they can’t find anywhere else,” says Hans Galland, senior vice president of development for Pacific Eagle. “Cavalleri fits the needs of successful artists and creatives, alumni and graduate students at nearby Pepperdine University, and active young families that enjoy outdoor recreation and a top-tier school district.”
Situated at 6487 Cavalleri Road—on a 10-acre gated reserve, amid rolling hills near Zuma Beach and Point Dume—the community is rife with nearby amenities. Homeowners can enjoy outdoor pursuits such as surfing, hiking and biking, alongside premier shopping and dining destinations including the Malibu Country Mart and Lumber Yard.
Meanwhile, the community itself will serve as the ultimate port of call when it comes to wellness and tranquility.
“Owners will find a quiet destination and plenty of outlets for meditation, yoga and contemplation on the property and surrounding reserve,” says Galland. Among Cavalleri’s offerings: a 52-foot pool; a cutting-edge fitness center; an outdoor dining pavilion; yoga terrace; two tennis courts; a great lawn for outdoor activities; dog parks; and a meditation area set amid lush grounds designed by Santa Monica based landscape architect Pamela Burton.
As for the residences, expect an open and airy feel with high ceilings and a seamless flow from the indoors to expansive outdoor terraces, along with stylish and eco-friendly touches such as European hardwood flooring throughout. Notable amenities include top-of-theline gourmet kitchens with professional Bertazzoni, Thermador and Bosch appliances, gray Oak Mesa Matte cabinetry by Bedford and white quartz Silestone countertops with a waterfall edge; sumptuous spa-like bathrooms boasting Italian-made porcelain stoneware flooring and wall tiles, freestanding soaking tubs, and Hansgrohe and Duravit fixtures; and open-air kitchens with dining for 14.
“The open, modern aesthetic of the floor plans is unique, as the other condos on the market at this price point were built prior to 2000 and don’t offer similar layouts,” says Galland. Homes reflecting the quintessential Malibu lifestyle, at a realistic price point? Bank on it.
