Experience the allure of the Amalfi Coast nestled along the picturesque coastline of Malibu. Located just 10 minutes away from the Palisades Village, enjoy unparalleled convenience to world-class dining, shopping and California’s most captivating beaches.

The Wakecrest Residence in Malibu, California, is a striking blend of restoration and innovation, breathing new life into a vintage 1962 structure overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Personal residence of internationally recognized Architect Russell Shubin of ShubinDonaldson, the project expertly preserves the original architecture while infusing it with contemporary elegance.

Throughout the renovation, Russell Shubin meticulously revealed and celebrated distinctive features of the existing structure, including the masterful irregular-width wood ceiling boards that adorn the iconic A-Frame roof. His personal commitment to the project, refined through multiple iterations, culminates in a harmonious fusion of his vision and the home's timeless character.

At the heart of the design lies a deliberate axial program, anchored by an impressive entrance framed by a floating glass canopy and flanking glazed lanterns, leading visitors over a tranquil reflecting pool. Stepping into the pitched central living area, one is immediately embraced by a seamless blend of indoor-outdoor living, unveiling breathtaking views. The carefully crafted outdoor space features a bespoke 16-jet, 4-edge infinity spool, an inviting fire pit, a well-appointed barbecue area, and expansive deck space offering unobstructed ocean vistas. Beneath the deck lies ample storage, discreetly tucked away to maximize functionality without compromising aesthetics. 

The residence boasts a premier chef’s kitchen commanding attention with its panoramic hillside views reminiscent of the Amalfi Coast. Equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and cleverly designed storage solutions, the kitchen effortlessly marries form and function.

Offering four bedrooms and four full bathrooms, the residence provides ample accommodation. The primary suite, a sanctuary unto itself, invites serenity with sliding glass doors that open to the well-manicured yard. The primary bath is a testament to perfection, featuring leathered limestone surfaces and a soaking tub enveloped by glazed glass, supplying indulgence and privacy.

Celebrating a refined interplay between architectural forms and the coastal landscape, diligent attention to detail elevates every aspect of the home. The Wakecrest Residence emerges as a modern retreat infused with purpose and vitality, a true must-see!
