House of the Day: Malibu Listing Has a Kauai Feel


Those familiar with the five-star Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa on the island of Kauai may do a double-take when they see the latest $44.5 million listing to come on the market in Malibu. Same stone portico columns framing the dead-on ocean view; same open-air indoor-outdoor space; same "please-let-me-die-and-go-to-heaven-here" reaction.

This 11,741-square-foot architectural estate sits dramatically on an ocean bluff with endless views of the Pacific. It has a 62-foot Italian glass-tiled pool and separate 18-foot spa. The seven- bedroom home has 9 1/2 bathrooms, a professional screening room, top-of-the-line chef's kitchen, travertine flooring and a master suite you never want to leave.

There are floor-to-ceiling glass doors throughout the house and 14-foot ceilings. The estate sits on 1.22 acres and was built in 1999.

Buy it and save the airfare to Kauai?
