Departing from the more traditional beach home is this example of neo-historicism, which lords over Zuma Beach from its five-plus-acre perch in Malibu Park. The mansion-estate, designed by Kaaren Khoudikian, echoes neoclassical design with a stone facade and angled pediment supported by tall columns. Inside, soft palettes complement rich hardwood finishes and ocean views.
