There is no place in the world like Malibu and there is no place in Malibu like The Case. Five Mid-Century Modern inspired estates, perched above Malibu Colony Beach, on 24 acres of California's most coveted land. Each home is its own bluff top sanctuary set on a massive lot, featuring round the clock security, unrivaled views and private concierge service. Just minutes from Nobu and Soho House, The Case is the most exclusive residential development in the country.
The Cantilever House
Walk into this state of the art Mid-Century Modern, Scott Gillen design masterpiece and you are immediately awed by the whitewater waves breaking along the Surfrider and Malibu Colony beaches in the distance. Your feet move you, almost unconsciously, toward the sea as you watch the surfers in the distance. You think, "I should do that." Then you think, "I will do that." The Cantilever House is as inspirational as it is awe-inspiring and as aspirational as it is grounded. The first of the architectural quintuplets, the anchor of Unvarnished’s architectural mountain.
Upon arrival, you are greeted by a custom, 850-pound teak door. As the door pivots open, you see clear through the Great Room, out to sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. Inspired by Mid-Century Modern design, a 25 foot deep cantilever roof suspends over the furnished patio accomplishing an incredible architectural feat. This aesthetic marvel creates a shaded area to lounge in as you indulge in authentic outdoor Malibu living. This expertly designed lot is positioned to offer unmatched views of surfrider beach, Palos Verdes and the entire Queen's Necklace. See the ocean glisten under the Malibu sun and the city lights twinkle under the Los Angeles moon.

The Butterfly House
You only get one chance to make a first impression and the jaw dropping views from The Butterfly House never fail to leave people speechless. This is without question one of the most outstanding homesites in all of California. Perfectly perched on a bluff-top promontory overlooking the fabled Malibu Colony, where you can simultaneously feel the waves crashing on the shore below and feel like a hawk gently gliding over the blue sea. In the distance, you see twinkling city lights, the majestic silhouette of Catalina Island and whales swimming by. In this incomparable setting, Scott Gillen has designed an architectural gem that soars over the Santa Monica Bay.
The butterfly roof line, dramatic overhang and pools of water frame the entrance for a masterfully designed front walkway. The entrance is outfitted with custom teak windows that tower above you and your guests as you are invited to take in the beautiful Malibu landscape. This 133-foot infinity pool, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is bookended by two spas and features a Baja shelf that spans the length of the pool, allowing for ultimate relaxation and incredible entertainment opportunity. Hidden beneath the infinity pool is a fitness center equipped with state of the art exercise machines and the same uncompromised view found throughout the rest of the private residence.

Glass walls invite the ocean, sky and canyon into the bedrooms and the dramatic great room that opens to an expansive deck with a 100-foot infinity pool and cabana.
