Majestic Point Dume Sanctuary, Malibu, California


Offered at $65,200,000

Rising above the majestic bluffs of Point Dume, a secluded modern masterpiece by renowned architect Edward R. Niles—once home to Johnny Carson, erstwhile host of The Tonight Show—reigns over four acres of parklike grounds, gardens, and pathways with exclusive access to a sandy beach below. The gated private driveway emerges into a magnificent rich green canopy of specimen trees punctuated by a brilliantly colored festival of flowers. The voluminous estate is comprised of wood and glass cunningly arranged in triangular geometric shapes and patterns, embracing spectacular panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and coastline. The home’s tantalizing energy emanates from sunbursts of light piercing through the soaring living room’s 30-foot-high glass with wooden fretwork ceiling, creating a veritable indoor arboretum anchored by a unique sunken copper-and-glass fireplace. The exquisite light-filled formal dining room creates an elegant environment for refined entertaining, while the chef’s kitchen satisfies the most discerning epicurean taste. The stone bluff terrace with views of Paradise Cove and the Queen’s Necklace is ideal for exalted al fresco dining, and a lower entertainment venue includes an outdoor lounge, a wood paneled media room and bar, fine wine cellar, and casual indoor/outdoor dining room. The ravishing master suite embellishes the entire second floor with notes of elegance and luxury in two sumptuous bathroom suites, both with private offices. Directly across from the main residence are two gorgeous acres of exquisitely manicured rose gardens on grounds that include a championship tennis court with viewing area and a pavilion affording two separate guest suites, a kitchen, gym, and sauna. A separate and tastefully appointed guest house provides company a restful stay in a tranquil setting. This iconic Malibu estate also features a saltwater pool with waterfall and sundeck, private security office, staff cottage, estate manager’s office, motor court, and gated staff parking lot.  Photo Credits: Mary E.
