5941 Kanan Dume Road
A magnificent Mediterranean-style vineyard estate, this rare Malibu property is both a private retreat and entertainer’s dream. Located between Zuma Beach and Carbon Beach, the estate overlooks the very desirable Point Dume, with expansive views across manicured vineyards, distant rolling hills and the Pacific Ocean.
One of the few vineyards permitted in Malibu, it is comprised of two lots: the first, approximately 2.1 acres planted with 472 Viognier vines and 442 Cabernet vines; the second, approximately 2.6 acres with a greenhouse permit, is prepared, wired and ready for planting with 2,100 vines. To reach the residence, a gated drive winds through vineyards and lush landscaping reminiscent of the Mediterranean. A circular motorcourt surrounded by centennial vines leads to a welcoming double-door tiled entry flanked by handsome stone and ironwork.
Inside, the light-filled high-ceiling entry steps down through wide, gracious archways to the living room with French doors on three sides opening to balconies, sea breezes and nonstop views. With an open-concept design that invites both casual living and sparkling entertaining, the large formal dining room with fireplace adjoins a professional chef’s kitchen with center island and walk-in pantry. Other handsomely crafted features include an expansive wine cellar, screening room, elevator, safe room and an office/study. The main-level master suite, featuring a fireplace, beautiful bath and all-wood walk-in closet, opens to a shaded patio.
On the upper level, along with additional bedrooms, a spacious family room with fireplace opens to a large wraparound tiled deck, perfect for al fresco dining and sunset cocktails. The estate is also equipped with speakers inside and out and a full alarm system with a dozen cameras monitoring the property.
In addition to the vineyards, the grounds include a broad patio, pool and spa overlooking the day-and-night views. Masterfully crafted with artisan and traditional details, this is an enchanting oasis of singular luxury.
