The California coastline glimmers with the beauty of a tropical view, an expanse envied by landlocked and seaside ocean lovers alike. Carefully placed along the land, thirteen homes rest with a quiet yet demanding and irreplaceable presence.
For the first time, these homes are brought to the market as a $500 million collection of “The Malibu Series,” energizing the 21-mile stretch of the Santa Monica Bay coastline and offering life as they are in various stages of the construction process. Brought to life by the brilliance of Scott Gillen and his renowned firm Unvarnished, the structures stand with individuality and elegance, comprised of The New Castle, The Case Residences, Malibu Road Beach House, Paradise Cove House, The Point Dume Compound and The Who Homes – The Where, The Why, The What and The Who.
As the United States’ second largest residential real estate agency by sales volume, Douglas Elliman Real Estate is coordinating all matters for “The Malibu Series.” Marketed by famed Douglas Elliman agent Tracy Tutor, two homes are already sold and two others are under contract, leaving nine residences available to seekers of thoughtful and faultless design by Unvarnished.
The New Castle
The name perfectly fits this first home in the luxurious Malibu Series. Expansive windows allow natural light to soak the home’s interior and open views to paint a breathtaking picture of the California waters. The three-sided infinity pool sits outside the glass, acting as a shimmering barrier between the ocean and the property. Filled with top appliances and sleek furnishings, the New Castle offers its residents an escape from the ordinary— and an invitation into an exclusive lifestyle.
A gorgeous Teak wine room complete with a collection of 450 bottles and an adjacent cigar room occupy a section of the home. The New Castle’s architectural wooden features take a majority of the attention through the interior, complimented by custom-designed furniture such as Minotti sofas and beds and Bulthaup kitchen features.
The Case Residences
An Unvarnished vision, the firm began The Case project in 2018, comprised of five mid-century modern homes tucked inside a guard-gated community in the glorious Malibu Bluffs. On its 24 acres, The Case features exclusive amenities of the alluring Malibu. Captivating views of the Pacific Ocean and renowned Surfrider and Malibu Colony beaches enhance the value of every one of the residences, in addition to Gillen’s warm minimalistic style.
Ranging from 9,500 to 12,000 square feet, The Case residences are priced from $50-100 million. Construction is set to be completed in 2020.
Malibu Road Beach House: 24266 Malibu Road
An unrivaled beach beauty, this beach house sits on the sand along the famed old Malibu Road. The 7,000 square-foot lot is filled by four bedrooms and four bathrooms, a signature Bulthaup kitchen, a three-car garage, beautiful infinity edge pool and pool deck and white oak flooring. The residence can be acquired for $25 million.
Paradise Cove House: 27724 Pacific Coast Highway
The Paradise Cove House can be discovered on one and a half acres of the most secluded part of the beach. On the expansive upper pad rests an oversized pool and pool house complete with a modern chef’s kitchen. Price is available per request.
The Point Dume Compound: 29215 Cliffside Drive Home
Gillen recognized a masterpiece, choosing to give this property a facelift. The Point Dume Compound overlooks the Nature Preserve and Dume Cove’s protected waters, both teeming with life and beauty. With the Unvarnished remodeling project, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom structure occupies nearly 5,000 square feet and boasts ocean views, a movie theater and a garage inside its two stories. Along with the main house, this listing includes a detached pool house and a guesthouse complete with a kitchen, home gym and basement. An infinity pool is tucked amidst the separate structures, forming a courtyard for residents’ enjoyment on perfect Malibu evenings. The Point Dume Compound is priced at $25 million.
Four extraordinary masterpieces— The Who, The What, The Where, The Why—band together within a gated enclave, each proclaiming their grandeur individually, yet marveled as modern architectural powerhouses when viewed as a set. Scott Gillen’s creativity in these homes is greatly sought after, as two of the homes have already been sold and one is under contract.
As the third residence in the collection, The What is situated on a Malibu hillside, giving perfect views out to the vast expanse of blue ocean from several large glass walls around the home. Occupying 9,000 square feet, The What’s interior is made up of four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a chef’s Bulthaup kitchen, media room, fitness studio and a wine cellar. Also featured on the property is an infinity-edged pool and spa overlooking the stunning ocean view.
“I live to create, and so for years I have put everything I am into turning ideas and dream into reality,” said Mr. Gillen, creator of The Malibu Series. “My intense focus on results equates to a product, like The Malibu Series, that is nothing short of awe-inspiring.”
Inspiring awe is just what this collection effortlessly does. The authentic glory of Malibu is enough to admire, but the addition of sophisticated architecture filled with intentional luxuries will make high net-worth buyers star struck.
