The Most Expensive Home in California Doesn’t Belong To a Celebrity

Set on approximately five acres in one of the most beautiful coves in the world is a house in the Encinal Bluffs area of Malibu. Designed by Robert AM Stern, the house is reminiscent of old estates in Provence, Tuscany and Spain. The stone-covered structures feature antique Terra-cotta roofs that are brilliantly connected through gardens and courtyards that all overlook incredible views of the Pacific Ocean. The compound contains nine structures, including a gym, beach cottage, guest houses, an office, and an underground tunnel from the pool that leads to a large movie theater. There’s even a separate elevator that takes you to the beach. The single-family home, built in 2002, sports 16 bedrooms and 22 bathrooms over 25,025 square feet. All you need to move into this gorgeous property is a mere $225 million.
