Fishing boats and the occasional sea creature passing through the waves of the Pacific form the backdrop for an artificial beach area at this modern showplace in MariSol Malibu, an 80-acre community of 17 estates.

Set on a bluff-top acre of what was once Rancho Malibu, the two-story captures an exotic feel with ipe wood siding, a live coral aquarium and a range of tropical palms and tree specimens. A rooftop putting green and and indoor-outdoor wet bar further a casual yet contemporary atmosphere.
