Descriptions of luxury real estate often make reference to “dream homes,” but Malibu’s Villa Sogno takes the moniker seriously — sogno means “dream” in Italian.
On an approximately four-acre bluff overlooking famed Zuma Beach, the breathtaking residence is classically Mediterranean in style, with angles and rooflines that create a distinctive silhouette against the brilliant blue Malibu sky.
Within, those timeless lines have an equivalent — the flow of spaces, the attention to detail, and the quality of construction distinguish the home from other estates in the area. No expense was spared in creating the approximately 11,000-square-foot villa, which includes five relaxing bedroom suites and a host of other desirables, from a stunning wine room, a wet bar, and an impressively outfitted and mirrored fitness room to a home theater and game room.
Baths and closets throughout are luxurious and spacious.
The celebrated sunshine of Southern California creates a lively, cheerful ambience in nearly every room thanks to numerous oversized windows, lofty ceilings, a luminous palette, and thoughtful use of handsome natural materials.
Designed with entertaining in mind, the home naturally features an impeccable cook’s kitchen, one that beckons with its stylishness. This is an open, airy space with a beamed pitched ceiling, a generous island, an array of top-tier appliances, sleek white cabinetry, and multiple seating options, including a cozy family area with a fireplace.
The epicenter of the estate, however, is the majestic, light-flooded great room, with its soaring ceiling, eye-catching beamwork, outsize skylight, built-in bookshelves, and twin classical fireplaces. Regal banks glass blur the line between indoors and out, offering a front-row seat to the gratifying vistas.
Doors open to a breezy terrace and swimming pool patio with unobstructed views of sea, sand, and sunsets.
