The final project of acclaimed mid-century modern architect Pierre Koenig, a remarkable oceanfront home on the Malibu coast, has been listed for sale at $17.85 million.
Known as the Koenig Beach House, the 3,600-square-foot home features floor-to-ceiling windows that admit breathtaking views from every room, and sliding doors and decks that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Cyprus and palm trees surround the home, which sits just feet from the dramatic Pacific coast. The home’s stark lines, clean angles, and steel-and-glass construction embody the modern aesthetic Koenig was known for.
The glass walls provide every room with breathtaking views from Broad Beach to Point Dume and let in tons of natural light. Creamy walls with chrome-and-blonde wood accents contribute to the crisp, minimalist look, while sliding glass doors offer seamless indoor/outdoor living. A steel central staircase connects the floors in style.
The four-bedroom, four-bath home boasts a charming kitchen and a living room includes a fireplace. A gym, home theatre, and garage with a car lift elevate the luxury of the property. Outside, an oversized spa allows for relaxation with an ocean view. The home is solar powered and features the Control 4 smart home system.
One of the world’s most famous mid-century modern architects, Pierre Koenig earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Southern California then went on to teach at his alma mater for 40 years. A prolific lecturer and the recipient of more than twenty awards, Koenig was known for his contemporary designs, perhaps most notable the Stahl House, a Hollywood Hills home built in 1959 that has appeared in many movies, TV shows, and music videos.
