Pritchett-Rapf & Associates Represent MariSol Estate
Posted by Stephen Udoff — January 27, 2011
The showcase "MariSol Estate," masterfully designed by Barry Berkus, A.I.A., recognized for decades as one of the Country's most influential and innovative residential architects, sets the benchmark of design excellence for the entire community. Located on a spectacularly landscaped one-acre oceanfront estate site in the middle of MariSol's private bluff with 360° pristine white water, island and mountain views, it is an extraordinary example of Malibu living.
Incorporating Berkus' dramatic and contemporary design aesthetic as well as his penchant for sustainable design principles and materials, the estate presents an exceptionally healthy and eco-friendly living environment. With nearly 10,000 square feet of single story indoor-outdoor living space, the home features a 60-foot-wide great room with 14-foot-high ceilings, a fully equipped wet bar, twin master bedrooms with towering oak ceilings and views of surfers right below, two spacious other bedrooms with mountain views, a state-of-the-art theater, open chef's kitchen, a breakfast room, a refrigerated wine cellar, a gym, an office and beautifully landscaped grounds with an infinity-edge lap pool, 3 patios, a state of the art barbeque and outdoor dining pavilion, an ironwood deck on a 4,000 square foot bluff top "beach," a water wall of rock quarried from the site set in a magical fern and oak garden and a driveway of cobblestone hand hewn from native rock and parking on site for 10 cars (3 garaged).
All electronics are centrally controlled by a Crestron smart system; 10 video cameras (including an HD rooftop controllable zoom camera directed at the point break) and other systems provide optimum security; window coverings are electronically controlled Lutron black out and sunshades.
Interiors were superbly designed by William Heffner, AIA, whose revered sense of style is repeated in the elegant designer furnishings and the exotic finishes from Beverly Hills' finest proprietors. In every exceptional detail, from its rare Brazilian slate roof tiles and exquisite French limestone floors and rift-sawn oak ceilings and floors, to the impeccably designed landscaping, the MariSol Estate is an entertainer's delight.
The MariSol Showcase Estate is priced at $17 million.
