Resting on the hillsides of the Santa Monica Mountains, above Malibu’s pristine white sands and the sparkling blue Pacific are some of the most desirable luxury homes in the world. It’s where the horizon serves as a canvas for glorious sunsets; sea breezes invigorate the senses; and Mother Nature’s most magical work is on display for you to savor. Welcome to 6110 Merritt Drive.
Designed by renowned architect Ron Firestone, this 6 bedroom, 8.5 bath luxury estate has been impeccably fashioned with Mediterranean style and elegance. You’ll discover virtually every décor detail crafted with artisan precision as the 10,331 square foot, two level home unfolds its many treasures. Sumptuous hand painted frescos, impressive mahogany wood-work, and ornate antique chandeliers effortlessly commingle. Double-high ceilings grace the main level playing counterpoint to Italian travertine floors. Expansive windows and sliders frame picturesque views that entice you onto the wrap around balcony to relish the beauty of the outdoors.
In addition to the pitch-perfect aesthetics, the home has been balanced and proportioned to allow for both evenings of grand entertaining or moments of casual relaxation.
The main floor’s formal living and dining rooms are infused with elegant detailing. Beautifully contoured ceilings have been accented with ornamental crown molding, and generous windows are dressed with flowing draperies. An oversized fireplace encased by a striking granite mantle graces the living room, while the dining room’s enchanting ceiling fresco and exquisite antique chandelier will impress.
The comfortable den that showcases a floor-to-ceiling mahogany book case and entertainment center easily flows into the spacious kitchen and breakfast room – a natural gathering spot for family and friends.
Rich in detail the kitchen shimmers with magnificent Italian granite countertops and backsplashes; abundant mahogany cupboards and butler pantry; a built in work station for menu planning; and a large center island with casual seating. The adjacent, architecturally distinctive breakfast room envelops you with arched windows that deliver 180 degrees of picturesque views along with easy access to the balcony where morning coffee and conversation can be enjoyed.
And when the time is right the luxurious master bedroom suite quietly seduces you with soft hues, an inviting fireplace, built-in sound system, and private balcony. Dual walk-in closets are paired with two master baths, each graciously appointed with sophistication and style then liberally finished with comforts that include deep whirlpool tubs and spacious showers.
Adding to the home’s dimensions is a stairway that languorously descends to the lower level where a hallway appointed with plush carpeting leads to a second master suite; bedrooms with private baths; maid’s quarters; game room and bar; all with access to the vistas and solitude of the rear yard.
With its magnificent manicured lawns and sprawling foliaged hillsides accented with Melaleuca and Pepper trees, the spacious rear grounds stay perfectly in tune with the home’s Mediterranean architecture. The yard’s total privacy allows for absolute relaxation as you bask in the sun while lounging on one of several verandas that surround the sparkling pool and spa. And at day’s end, as the sun sets and the sky transforms into brilliant shades of crimson and gold, you realize that there is really no other paradise quite like living in the hills of Malibu.
