A Modern Mansion on the Shores of Malibu
In the world of real estate, many homes are striking but few take your breath away. However, this modern mansion in Malibu accomplishes the task! Built in the late 1990’s, the homeowner, billionaire founder of Metro Networks Bill Saperstein, clearly spared no expense. Affectionately known as Mar de Amor, translated to Sea of Love, this dream home will be the gem of any real estate portfolio. (Image Credit: Sotheby’s International Realty – Beverly Hills Brokerage)
A Thoroughly Modern Mansion
As one steps into this modern mansion, it immediately lets you know just how special it is. The interior focal point is surely the central crystal chandelier. Soaring 18 feet, it draws the eye upward in the two-story entryway. Moreover, the circular stairway that surrounds it, made of Bianco Carolina white marble and etched glass, adds a dramatic flair that more than hints at the luxury found within the rest of the home.
The luxury home capitalizes on its open living design. Throughout the space, crisp white walls and floors combine with glass to allow the beauty of the property to shine. In fact, each floor of this 10,646 square foot home boasts ocean, coastline and island views. Moreover, with a touch of whimsy, the overall footprint of the home mimics that of a ship’s hull preparing to journey out to the open sea.
The master retreat is a sanctuary homeowners will not easily depart! First and foremost, it is ideally positioned on the property to overlook the infinity pool, ocean and hillside, making for stunning sunsets. Indeed, the master bath rivals that of any spa with its dual vanity, multi-head shower and copper soaking tub. And the extensive closet is ready to house all the clothing of any fashionista. With its multiple islands, shoe storage wall and vanity area, this closet lacks nothing!
There is not a home cook alive who wouldn’t be proud to work in this astonishing chef’s kitchen. Stainless steel cabinets, a black stone floor and a Nano glass island make this dazzling space gleam. Oversized, professional-grade appliances also sparkle while allowing ample space for food preparation. Furthermore, the connected elevator makes transporting bespoke dishes to this dream home’s lower entertainment level a breeze.

Quite simply, high-end elements abound throughout this home! The twenty-seat home theater will have homeowners often hosting movie nights. After all, with a digital projector and Dolby sound, why bother with the theater? Smart home features are also present. A Savant system brings fiber optics to the beach. The Avaya phone system will help unify your communication. And Lutron shades provide green energy-saving while adding elegance.
Wellness goals will be easily achieved with help from the fitness center. Equipped with nearly any machine desired, the large space also has mirrored walls to work toward proper form. The outdoor tennis court, surrounded by towering trees, also provides an excellent pastime.
And don’t forget about the eight-car subterranean garage! It will thrill any budding car collector.
While the inside of this modern mansion impresses, the outdoors surely do not disappoint. The 2.6 acre parcel nestles high on the hillside over the Pacific. But there is much to see here beyond the view. While pulling through the gated drive, your eyes set up a fantasy land sure to delight the children. Two wooden treehouses, connected by a rope bridge, will keep them busy for hours on end.
And, of course, there is the stunning infinity pool. Set perpendicular to the house, it stretches outward toward the ocean, creating the illusion that swimmers will soon reach the sea. Multiple decks, patios and Zen walkways further entice homeowners to enjoy the beautiful California weather. But one of the biggest selling points of this luxury home is its proximity and access to the ocean. In fact, Mar de Amor offers a large private beach in one of the most coveted stretches of sand in the state.
Location, Location, Location
Aside from the stunning architecture, what truly makes this modern mansion magnificent is its location. Malibu has long been a favorite of Hollywood’s most notable celebrities. Jennifer Aniston, Leonardo DiCaprio, John McEnroe and Mel Gibson, amongst many others, count among the region’s famous residents. In addition to famous and equally-wealthy neighbors, this exclusive zip code boasts safe neighborhoods, myriad outdoor activities and a tight-knit community.
Dreaming of your own seaside sanctuary? Mar de Amor is waiting to make that dream come true.
