If California is somewhat unique in the American property scene, then surely Malibu is right up there in competition for the jewel in the crown of the Golden State.
And within this Malibu postcode, you'll be hard-pressed to find a property with such a surprisingly high price-tag for what it's offering.
Designed by internationally renowned architect Guy Dreierand, the US$65 million (AU$95 million) compound covers 4,922-square-feet and is described as "a liveable sculpture."
However it only offers three bedrooms and four bathrooms - enough bang for your buck, you may be asking? Read on to decide for yourself.
The open-plan mansion consists of two levels, with the primary floor featuring two bedrooms with ensuites, a living room, family room, dining room, gallery, chef's kitchen and wet bar.
The master retreat takes up the entire lower level and features an office, sitting room, massive walk-in closet and luxurious bathroom. There's also access to a flagstone patio area with a waterfall and pond that leads to the backyard of the property. Here you'll find large manicured lawns, a tennis court, grotto-style Jacuzzi and another flagstone patio area with a barbecue island and pizza oven. There's even a terraced path to the beach to make sure you never lose your way when heading for your morning swim.
The home's interiors boast high cedar ceilings, polished granite walls, towering windows offering breathtaking sea views, French limestone floors and automated glass doors.
