Renovated Malibu post-and-beam wants $2M

By Lauren Ro

Located in the small neighborhood of Monte Nido, California, just 10 minutes north of Malibu, this completely renovated post-and-beam from the ’70s combines the best of midcentury design with contemporary comforts. It’s also nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains and a short drive to the beach, making it an ideal nature retreat.

While the bones of the original structure remain, virtually everything else has been transformed. The sprawling 2,898-square-foot home features a dusty blue exterior accented by redwood siding, with minimalist interiors with white walls and dark hardwood floors.

The main living area retains much of its midcentury roots, including the vaulted ceiling and open floorplan comprising two seating areas, dining, and open kitchen. Pivoting glass doors open directly onto a tigerwood deck (an outdoor living room of sorts) and terraced gardens, with an additional lounge and a fire pit. An adjacent wall of glass in the living room furthers the indoor-outdoor connections.
