Who needs Napa…we have Malibu!

No boring boardroom for this group!  Our last Coldwell Banker meeting was held at this stunning Tuscan style residence in Malibu.  While sipping wine from the property’s very own award winning vineyard, we discussed the state of the market for what the Coldwell Banker Previews division considers “high-end” homes.  This one clearly qualifies, for it is listed at $49 million.  

This thirty seven acre parcel is terraced with vineyards, filled with orchards of citrus, fruit and nut trees.  The wine varieties available here Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and the latest planting Pinot Noir will be ready in 2011.  The estate is about 9,000 square feet with 360 degree views.

 

The architect, Bob Easton, completed this home with imported French limestone exterior and Baja Redlands roof tile.  As I looked out onto the property, I felt that I was in Italy.  “Under the Tuscan Sun” certainly came to mind.  This estate has five bedrooms, five baths, and five fireplaces, a chef’s kitchen, elevator to every floor and balconies throughout. 

The infinity pool was a show stopper.  I couldn’t help but wish that all my colleagues would leave so that I could take a private dip!
It’s easy to picture a massive cocktail party in these digs…with a deck about 5000 square feet alone, how fun would that be.  Or how about an intimate wine tasting event in your very own wine tasting room with adjacent barrel storage. 
Our meeting got interrupted by the owner flying in…literally!  I had to step out and take this picture.  How sweet is that… your very own helicopter landing site steps away from the property.  One way to beat L.A. traffic!

We must not forget that the ocean is close by as well.  For any surfer that have an affinity to vineyards…do I have a home for you!
 
I hope  that you have enjoyed your tour of Rocky Oaks Estate.  It was a pleasure viewing this magnificent property and to share it with you.  We are certainly blessed to live in a city that is graced with not only the best weather, but so many examples of fine architecture such as this home.  Let’s raise a glass to fine living!
