“Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” Gary Snyder
The American Pulitzer Prize-winning poet traveled all over the world,contemplating nature,and writing about its beauty,in almost mythological terms.Luckily,we Californians are able to see firsthand many of the most striking vistas the natural world has to offer.A select group of individuals know exactly how to stay close to nature,and they are the lucky residents of Malibu Lakeside.One of the homes now on the market stays true to this lifestyle,with a back deck running across the length of the home,surrounded by towering eucalyptus trees,giving the residents privacy,along with a view of the lake.Anyone having breakfast on the deck is assured of hearing the chatter of dozens of species of birds,and that’s it,the only sounds breaking the morning stillness.
The first floor has the ambiance of a lodge,with its stone-like fireplace,dark floors and cheery kitchen and eating area.A full bath is also on this level.Upstairs,two large bedrooms are on one end of the home,one with walk-in closet;the other side houses the master bedroom,with walk-in closet,and a charming fireplace,with tiles resembling that of the Netherlands.A full-sized bath is on this level,and two of the bedrooms have beautiful decks.A unique feature of this home is in the large finished basement,which has a multitude of possibilities:great kids’ play area,media center,gym,etc.There is outdoor access to this space,as well as from the first floor.Another patio area is off this level,with a large grassy area and an orange and cherry plum tree assure visitors of a great snack for a hike in the surrounding hills.There’s something about living on Malibu Lakeside;something wonderful.
