No one was cool like Steve McQueen. It stands to reason that the legendary actor owned a Malibu beach house back in the day; like riding a motorcycle away from Nazis or driving a green Mustang hell-bent-for-leather over the vertiginous streets of San Francisco, he set the standard for how to do it with utter cool.
Now his Malibu beach house, built in 1970, is on the market, bringing with it an unparalleled location, fine architecture and design that make the most of the 0.23 acre lot, endless views of the Pacific Ocean and the heritage (and maybe the ghost) of the King of Cool.
31508 Victoria Point Road is private gated street leading to this 3,307 square foot beachfront getaway with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a two-car garage and numerous large oceanfront deck areas. Just minutes from the Trancas shopping market, this home has a naturally flowing floor plan and direct beach access to a majestic beach-front cove with an excellent surf break located right out in front.
Almost every room enjoys beautiful ocean and coastline views. Public spaces include an expansive great room with a fireplace and vaulted ceilings, a spacious, newly renovated chef’s kitchen with a center island and open dining area, a bottom floor den with a minibar, a large beachfront deck and a spa. Throughout are wide plank hardwood floors, large windows looking out toward the ocean, and fine finishes. Thoughtful design makes the most of the views; the eat-in kitchen, for example, locates its dining area before the vast ocean-facing windows. Deck flooring in many areas consists of warm-hued stone pavers, while glass deck railings make the most of the views.
The interior is white and clean, the result of a recent renovation. This includes a white marble and stone primary bath with claw-footed soaking tub, a guest bath lined with sea glass-hued pale green tiles and smaller, yet elegant guest baths. There is a children’s playroom, a bunkroom, and one child’s bedroom features a boat-shaped bed.
This ultimate piece of Malibu lore and location is offered for $12.2 million by Shen Schulz of Sotheby’s International Realty – Malibu Brokerage.
