The Agency was proud to sponsor the 2018 Malibu Dwell on Design Tour, a self-guided tour drawing hundreds of design devotees from across Los Angeles and beyond. Five “awe-inspiring contemporary homes” were hand-picked by Dwell’s team of architecture and design experts that reflect the rich diversity of livable, innovative architecture and design found throughout Malibu. The Agency is a firm that prides itself on being not just a luxury real estate brokerage but a lifestyle company with a commitment to supporting innovative, design-minded programs and events around the world.

Among the five residences featured was 30478 Morning View Drive, a newly built, ocean-view modernist estate represented by The Agency’s Brian Linder, AIA, and William Baker. Deftly executed by Vitus Mataré & Associates, the five-bedroom, four-bath home showcases 4,659 square feet of living space and an open floor plan that fosters a seamless flow between the living, dining and kitchen spaces while capitalizing on available views and cool ocean breezes. The interiors feature a host of high-end finishes, including steel trowel plaster, polished concrete floors, tongue-and-groove hardwood ceilings, diamond tread stairs and absolute black countertops. An exceptional chef’s kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, eat-in center island, and European hardware.

Downstairs, voluminous bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open directly onto the pool deck for an unprecedented indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Complete with elegant drought-tolerant landscaping, two separate roof decks, a full-length balcony, attractive wet bar and upscale security system, the home embodies a contemporary version of an ancient building typology in a prime Malibu location.

“Bill and I are honored to represent the owners of this distinctive property and greatly appreciate the referral by the home’s talented designer Vitus Mataré,” says Brian. “It was a pleasure opening the doors to Morning View and sharing the experience with fellow modernist design enthusiasts as part of the 2018 Malibu Dwell on Design Tour.”
