About Private Residence

Nestled along the serene coastline of Malibu, California, the “Private Residence” stands as a testament to contemporary elegance. Designed in 2018 by the visionary Domenique Mora, this beach house effortlessly marries the tranquility of its natural surroundings with the cutting-edge of modern interior design.

Coastal Sanctuary

Stepping into the living room, one is enveloped by a canvas of creamy whites and rich wooden accents, underscored by the panoramic ocean views framed by expansive glass doors. This space, envisioned for both relaxation and social gatherings, features a unique wooden centerpiece, complementing the natural light that floods the room. The seamless flow to the outdoor deck invites an indistinguishable line between inside and out.

Refined Relaxation

The master bathroom, a spa-like retreat, boasts a freestanding tub set against a backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows, offering a private soak with an oceanfront view. Wooden vanities and a walk-in shower echo the home’s warm, minimalist aesthetic, creating a space where one can unwind in style.

Transitioning to the secondary bathroom, the design shifts to a clean, crisp white palette. Here, functionality meets design with sleek cabinetry and a glass-encased shower that amplifies the room’s spaciousness.

Intimate Elegance

In the bedrooms, the mastery of minimalist luxury continues. The main suite, with its suspended bed and sweeping ocean views, serves as a tranquil haven. In contrast, the guest room offers a cozy intimacy, with windows that frame the lush greenery, allowing nature to serve as living art.

The dining areas, one nestled within and the other out on a sun-drenched deck, cater to any occasion. Inside, a sleek, modern fireplace stands sentinel beside a wooden table, while outside, the rustic table sets the stage for meals with the Pacific as the constant companion.

Completing the tour, the kitchen’s state-of-the-art appliances and marble finishes reflect a space designed not just for culinary creativity but also for social interaction, evidenced by the inviting central island. Nearby, a bespoke wine storage becomes a focal point, promising evenings of shared stories and fine vintages.

At every turn, “Private Residence” exemplifies a living experience that is as luxurious as it is comfortable, as striking as it is subtle—a true modern gem on the Malibu coast.
