As you enter this gated Monte Nido estate and traverse the gently winding road that leads to the welcoming front doors of this stunning residence, you’ll get your first glimpse of the imagination and expertise that went into its recent renovation. If you had the indulgence of an aerial view, you’d see a wooded, 3.65-acre lot nestled into the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. Adorned by a lagoon pool with waterfall and spa, there’s also a putting green and a vineyard … but let’s not get ahead of ourselves!

The diamond-patterned front doors—a design echoed on the vintage window above—evoke the sensation that you’ve arrived at a Montauk-inspired retreat. As you step inside this 7,263-square-foot, 5-bedroom, 5-bath estate, your eyes are drawn upward to the grand wrought iron staircase, which leads to a second-floor catwalk overlooking the living and great rooms and beckoning you to the 1,600-square-foot primary suite.

Premium features abound—thanks to celebrity interior designer Jennifer Farrell, who reimagined the property from start to finish with top-of-the-line products and materials that elicit oohs and aahs at every turn. From the Mohawk white oak flooring, Emser tile and Karastan rugs beneath your feet to the opulent chandeliers and bespoke light fixtures overhead, no detail was overlooked during the reinvention of this dwelling. Jennifer partnered with 23 luxury brands on this unique project, resulting in an unparalleled place to call home.

Ready for a quiet evening indoors? Cozy up to the fireplace in the elegant formal living room. Host a wine tasting at the bar in the speakeasy great room, which opens to the backyard via a wall of glass doors. Or chill out in the soundproof home theater with a 118-inch screen and luxurious seating for 10.

Want a taste of nature? Entertain guests at the outdoor Lynx kitchen. Bask in the pool flanked by a rock waterfall and a 14-person in-ground spa. Or for a little more activity, enjoy a competitive game of table tennis or go for a hole-in-one on the putting green or the 85-yard pitch hole—all part of your whimsical and delightful retreat.

And then there’s the estate vineyard. For the ultimate farm-to-table experience, this is the perfect spot to host an alfresco wine dinner. Currently producing wine, the vineyard includes 350 proprietary Grenache vines, a drought-tolerant drip system and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.

Back inside, the chef’s fantasy kitchen incorporates a 19-foot soft quartzite island, GE Monogram appliances, four wall ovens, a built-in coffee maker, plus a butler’s pantry and catering kitchen with a separate entrance for the in-law or nanny suite.

The primary suite boasts two separate seating areas—one with a fireplace—plus a gym and a spacious walk-in closet. Not only does the ensuite bathroom feature two vanities and two water closets, it also contains a wetroom with multiple showerheads and a Victoria + Albert custom tub.

This move-in ready estate—available furnished, if you desire—is your sanctuary to escape the world. The whole-house sound system and exquisite artwork entice the senses, while the majestic indoor-outdoor spaces and contemporary warmth create an environment like no other. With all the elements of an entertainer’s paradise, there’s never a reason to leave home.

But if you do venture out, you’ll appreciate easy access to Calabasas and Malibu. The epitome of Southern California living, Malibu Canyon is a rural paradise surrounded by rolling hills and lush meadows, with access to miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking and biking. The tranquil, private neighborhood is only 10 minutes from the beach, the Valley and the 101 Freeway.
