32554 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu,
Situated on 1.9 blufftop acres in Encinal Bluffs, this stunning, sustainable estate offers panoramic ocean views and direct beach access. In 2009, W3 Architects stripped the original house to the foundation, reimagining and expanding the state to maximize energy efficiency and far-reaching vistas. The 4-bedroom main residence features light, bright living and dining spaces, a chefs kitchen, floor-to-ceiling pocket doors and an ocean-view blufftop terrace for entertaining. Atop the main house sits a glass-walled loft and 3,000-sq-ft planted living roof. Features include a 1-bed/1-bath guest house, which presides over the solar-heated pool/spa, sports court and parking for 25 cars. A photovoltaic array provides all the home's power needs, while an active solar thermal water heating system provides hot water and in-floor heating. Built with sustainably sourced materials, this Zen-inspired retreat offers absolute privacy minutes from Malibus best shopping and dining.
