Pastoral Ranch Home on Approx. 2 Acres - Malibu, CA
Charming, pastoral, and rare are just some of the words that come to mind when you set foot on this one-of-a-kind property. Located on approx. 2 acres in Ramirez Canyon, this 2-bedroom ranch house sits along a seasonal stream amid mature oaks and sycamore trees, as well as gardens of roses, jasmine and Matilija poppies.
The single-story home has been extensively renovated and features 2 wood-burning fireplaces, a living room with vaulted ceiling and an over-sized skylight, as well as a an updated kitchen with all custom cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops and stainless steel appliances.
There is a separate 2-car garage with interior stairs leading to a second story that was once used as the residence's guest quarters. The two levels can be reconfigured for use as a large guesthouse, office space or recording studio.
The landscaped yard boasts an interlocking-paver patio, expansive lawns and a creek side flagstone patio. Cross one of two bridges over the stream to stairs that lead to the upper portion of the approx. 2-acre lot. Here you will find a gently sloped terrace surrounded by old-growth oak trees and an open area that can be turned into a beautiful meadow or sylvan setting.
Ramirez Canyon Road is the only private and gated canyon in western Malibu. The beach at Paradise Cove is easily within walking distance and can be reached via a tunnel under the Pacific Coast Highway in just a few short minutes. Remodel plans approved in 2008 (expired now) are available.
