A Classic Malibu Beach House Turned Stunning Midcentury Cottage

By

Originally built in 1946, this charming Malibu beach house has been stunningly reimagined for the discerning modern buyer, showcasing approximately 60 feet of mesmerizing beach frontage and an incredible indoor-outdoor flow for year-round Southern California living.

With the help of celebrity designer (and listing agent) Barrie Livingstone, whose clientele includes the likes of Cher and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, the home recently underwent a sophisticated renovation, bringing a sleek, midcentury vibe to the classic beach cottage. Folding glass pocket doors seamlessly fuse the airy, light-infused living room with a spacious, tiled deck overlooking the ocean and famed Big Rock. Exposed white wood beams and wide-plank white oak floors (designed to withstand the salt air) provide a soothing aesthetic while contrasting with deeper wood accents and retro light fixtures.

Situated on the lower level, the sprawling master suite bears the appearance of floating weightless over the ocean, and boasts a reading nook with built-in bookshelves, large walk-in closets and a voluminous bathroom with soaking tub and direct access to a private deck. Upstairs features a renovated kitchen with a La Cornue stove and spacious guest room.

A new staircase provides direct access to the beach, while new floor beams and pilings were recently installed to ensure the home maintains its coveted position—right on the sand—for generations to come.

Offered at $2,980,000
