First Point

The phone rang at 9:00 AM—from a realtor Cercone and Manheim respect. “I’ve got a property you’re going to want and I’m listing it publicly in one hour.” By 10:00 AM they were in escrow.

Thanks to a lot of engineering and a complete reimagining of space, a rabbit warren of dark, pseudo-Mediterranean rooms–with only a peek-a-boo view of the ocean–became a light-filled, contemporary retreat with breathtaking ocean views. First Point, named for the legendary surf break, embraces its surroundings with dual indoor/outdoor kitchens and bars, indoor/outdoor living areas, indoor/outdoor showers, even an adult tree house suitable for sleeping under the stars.

FEATURES: Three bedrooms and 3 ½ baths; a gated driveway on private street; 270 degree ocean views from Palos Verdes/The Queen’s Necklace to San Nicholas Island, including Surfrider Beach, The Malibu Lagoon and The Malibu Pier; private entry courtyard with fountained pond and gas lanterns; ocean view patio with 50 ft. 3-way infinity pool/spa and double fire pits; just under an acre of landscaped, tropical gardens and off-street parking designed for 10 cars; tiki tree house; bars indoors and out; chef’s kitchens indoors and out—including a wood burning pizza oven and barbecue; ocean views from all rooms but one; temperature-controlled wine storage; owner’s suite with 2-person soaking tub, steam room and interior/exterior shower, double sink with fountain-style faucets; amethyst geode sink with ceiling faucet; an automated 32’ disappearing door to the ocean views. The garage is wired for electric car charging but has been adapted for use as a club room; off-street parking for 10. House, patios, courtyard and driveway are wired for smart-house technology, internet and Sonos. Walking distance to Soho House and Nobu.

Constructed during the Woolsey Fire and marketed during the pandemic lockdown, First Point demonstrates Jaman’s ability to adapt to challenging conditions. The house sold with multiple offers, establishing the high price-point for its location as well as achieving the highest per-square-foot sale price of any Jaman Property to date.
