Located on a two-acre lot along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California, is a one-of-a-kind residence designed by architect Ellis David Gelman. The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom estate features dramatic angles, circular and triangular windows, and astounding ocean vistas—but what makes it truly unique is its TV debut as the main location for an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In the 1989 episode, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (played by multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Patrick Stewart) and his Starship Enterprise crew land on an apparently deserted planet.
The gated estate includes the main house, a detached guest unit, a two-car garage, parking for 10, and spacious areas for outdoor entertaining. Playful, yet contemporary, the home features high ceilings and luxurious materials in a neutral palette.
Slate tiles and bamboo flooring extend throughout the home. The open floor plan is great for entertaining—all bedrooms are on the main floor, and all social spaces are upstairs. Expansive windows wrap the main living area, anchored by a chef's kitchen, a breakfast bar with built-ins, and a loft above the kitchen.
Recently listed by Coldewell Banker's Ani Dermenjian for $5.7 million, this futuristic Star Trek home is looking for its next commander to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where almost no one has gone before.
