An architectural masterpiece. One of the most iconic properties on the California coast. The Wave House is the design of visionary architect Harry Gesner. Offered for sale for the first time in nearly 36 years. An avid surfer throughout his life, Gesner famously designed the house to emulate cresting waves. The house was completed in 1963 and exudes a mid-century modern aesthetic throughout emphasizing open space and natural light. Tucked into a hidden cove in Western Malibu, the home commands majestic views of the ocean waves, distant islands and surrounding landscape. The residence has two distinct parts. Three enormous oceanfront vaulted public rooms and a stunning beachfront primary suite with hot tub and sauna, plus a five-bedroom upper level that stretches the width of the property to offer ocean views from nearly every room. Architectural elements include enormous beams, wood-plank ceilings rest above hardwood floors and walls of glass with ocean beyond. Perhaps the most distinctive design theme is a series of overlapping circles. Three wraparound decks echo the shape of the incoming surf. The sunken conversation pit swirls around its central fireplace. Even the shape of the hand-cut copper shingles that cover the roof resemble the scales of a fish. A separate garage/guest house structure offers additional bedrooms. Providing the very essence of coastal living, the home features an expansive, landscaped entry patio, plus wide, semicircular decks for dining, entertaining, lounging, and sea and stargazing. Shown only to prequalified buyers.
