It’s called “originality.” You should try it sometime.
And here is just the place to find one of the great original homes of Malibou Lake, a 1925 fearlessly authentic gem! First of all, these properties are rarely for sale, usually staying in the same family for generations, so to walk through one of these rarities is a treat. The best part is that the owners kept the essence of the home: beamed ceilings, brick interior wall, wood burning fireplaces, hand-hewn stone walkway, leading to a jaw-dropping view of the Santa Monica Mountains and Malibou Lake.
Just as importantly, they made the home up-to-date and efficient, especially where it matters most – the kitchen and bathrooms. The combination of the new and the old creates a sweet, livable property that will satisfy another generation of homeowners. The kitchen is perfect: gorgeous wood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, upgraded custom cabinets, and dining area – all overlooking the lake. Both the great room and living room have the original log-burning fireplaces, with a lovely bay window – again overlooking the water. The bedroom is expansive: open-beamed ceilings, a charming, adjacent sitting room, and upgraded, ensuite bath with steam shower. The deck just outside the bedroom features a hot tub, again with lake views! A fenced deck runs across the entire back and side of the house, large enough to host the largest of holiday parties. From the deck, a stone path is a grand entrance to the dock. The 14,000 sq. ft. lot is surrounded by oak and pine trees. Members at Malibou Lake also have access to boating, swimming, tennis, fishing, a pool and year-round events. This is one of the few communities who ring in the 4th of July with 2-legged races and a softball game for the dads! Come and join in the fun. Be a part of the Malibou Lake originals!
