This Malibou Lake gem is truly a “diamond in the rough,” with a few rubies and sapphires thrown in, for good measure!  First of all, just owning a home in the tranquil oasis of Malibou Lake is a tremendous perk.  Just ask the hundreds of people who flocked here since the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s, in order to escape the hectic life of L.A. and to find the perfect spot to raise a family, retire, or just enjoy the amenities.  Is it fishing you want? – check.  Swimming and boating? – check.  Tennis? – check.  Membership in the Malibou Lake clubhouse that has year-round activities, whether you’re 8 or 80? – check.


The bungalow is nestled in a valley surrounded by the Santa Monica Mountains, with trees and lush greenery rivaling a bucket of emeralds!  The premier site, with its stacked-stone garden walls, cozy sitting areas, and large, 2-level dock, will have you hosting every 4th of July for years.  Be sure to show off the classic 1920’s photograph, which featured this iconic, shingle-siding Craftsman home.  A charming Dutch-door opens to the living room on the second level, replete with stunning wide-plank, pine flooring, vaulted ceiling, and stone fireplace.  All of the lower level and most of the upper level boasts this handsome wood.  Encircling this level is a huge deck, offering lovely garden views.  Adjacent is an office, whose bay window opens to even more vistas.  The kitchen, with pristine white cabinetry, breakfast area, and two large skylights is bright and welcoming, highlighted by a gorgeous Wolf range, with its “ruby” red knobs!  A dining room lies on one side of the kitchen and on the other end a paver-tiled family room, with French doors leading to the deck and some massive oak trees.  The guest bedroom, with its built-in wardrobe and window seat set into a large bay window, hosts an adjoining bathroom, with colorful “sapphire” Spanish tile-work and striking clawfoot tub – another jewel in this property


A master bedroom is on the first level and features an exterior entrance, two closets, an updated ensuite bath, with heated towel racks, separate shower and tub, and double vanity.  A utility room on the first level has been nicely renovated and used as a hairstylist’s work station.  The white cabinetry and paver floors offers much potential: game/exercise room included is a laundry area.

This treasure of a property is tailor-made for that certain someone who yearns for yesteryear and gentle living.  Someone who plans on watching the sunset over a pristine lake, in a private, lushly landscaped hideaway.  Someone who has discovered a diamond in the rough.
