The Encinal Bluffs, located just west of Broad Beach are home to some of the most fabulous estates in Malibu and some of our best sandy beaches.  I spent seven years on the Bluffs , walking its pristine shores.  The area is conveniently located to Vintage Market and the Trancas Country Mart; just a few miles from the public schools and Point Dume.


This stylish contemporary home on the Encinal Bluffs ( completed in 2012) is currently on the market for $9,250,000 . The home is sited on an approximately 28,300 sq ft lot and the features 3 bedrooms and 4.5 baths in approximately 3,492 sq. ft. The gourmet Elbau kitchen is a vision with its white glass front cabinets and black counters . There are 2 Gaggenau ovens, steam oven and automatic coffee maker.  DInesen flooring, full length planks ,accentuate the spaciousness and flow of the main rooms.  Automatic “vanishing” glass doors create a magnificent indoor / outdoor flow to the ocean view bluff , pool and deck.  The ocean view master suite has a spa style bathroom, walk in closets and ocean view patio.




This environmentally friendly home runs on solar panels. Private beach access.

If you are a qualified buyer looking for a fabulous beach home it would be my pleasure to give you a tour of this fabulous Malibu home.

After the matinee my friends and I gave the Sunset which, for a while, went through a rough patch with its cuisine.  We all feasted on hamburgers and fries with a Hess Cabernet while enjoying the view from the private upstairs dining room.  Happy to report the food was great!
