There are few Malibu enclaves as revered as the Serra Retreat. Situated moments from Carbon Beach, the homes in this exclusive gated community provide the best of what Malibu offers—natural beauty, privacy, and convenient beach access. The sleek, modern estate on 3464 Sweetwater Mesa Road was completely reimagined at the end of 2018. It sits on 4.2 palm tree-filled acres and boasts whitewater views of the beaches below, as well as sweeping coastline vistas that span south to the Santa Monica Bay and Catalina Island.
Arrive at the exquisitely re-imagined five-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 7,311-square-foot home through a gated driveway, which is lined by tall, privacy-enhancing shrubbery. Mature palms frame the home’s stunning entry: a breathtaking 20-foot-tall wall of glass that reveals the soaring ceilings and open spaces within. Every corner of the estate is designed to epitomize Southern California’s inimitable indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The airy open floor plan seamlessly melds living and entertaining spaces, while view-framing floor-to-ceiling windows shine throughout.
Inside, find a beachy color palette of sand-hued wood floors and cloud-white walls, plus incredible custom light fixtures. The six ensuite bedrooms include a primary with a generous walk-in closet replete with built-in storage. Elsewhere, entertainment-ready features are bountiful—in one living space, a retractable projection screen transforms a cozy fireplace into a home theater, complete with couch seating and a raised bar area. An expansive, artistically-conceived wine cellar offers storage for hundreds of bottles. In the backyard are multiple flat grassy areas, an oversized zero-edge pool, spa, and cabana with bar and TV. For even more incredible views of the Pacific, ascend the home’s exterior staircase to the more than 3,000-square-foot rooftop deck.
Though it is designed to be a pure oasis exposed only to the sounds of the not-so-distant surf, Sweetwater Mesa is just moments from the area’s most popular shopping, entertainment, and dining spots, from Malibu Lumberyard to SoHo House and Nobu.
