Property Description

This quintessential Italian Villa in Malaga Cove known as “Castello del Mare” is an exclusive estate home set on over an acre of a lavishly landscaped hillside of fruit trees and whispering pines. The site provides one of Palos Verdes Estates’ best panoramic views, starting from the Pacific Ocean, the coastline cities of the Queen’s Necklace up to Malibu’s Point Zuma, and back across the city lights of the Los Angeles basin set against the backdrop of the Santa Monica Mountains and down to Orange County’s Saddle Back Mountain. Set just up the hill from the Palos Verdes Country Club the home’s outside features a private front greeting courtyard and a shady loggia, an entertainer’s backyard with a kitchen area, balustrade view terraces, a tennis court, a lilied koi pond, an outdoor curtained casita, a stone walking path, and space for a small vineyard. Entering the home through its 2 story groin vault custom painted ceilings that lead into an arced cathedral foyer you will find the home boasts 6 Bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a billiard style family room, an arcade room, with a kitchen/bar, a wine cellar, a professional gym, a dry sauna, a steam shower, 2 offices, a library, a home theater, and 8 fireplaces – one of which is a 17th Century French Imported hearth – set on the outside patio overlooking the Poseidon mosaic-tiled pool – this is a MUST SEE HOME in an UNMATCHED LOCATION!
