Still recovering from sticker shock after the record setting real estate transaction that made Beyonce and JayZ’s $200 million Malibu purchase the most expensive home purchase in California real estate?
Look no further than “The Kaizen Home” which was on the market last spring at $75 million for this contemporary Spanish-Mediterranean estate.
The gated property is located on Pacific Coast Highway across from County Line Beach (technically Ventura County). The modern home was built by Kris Halliday of MKH Developments in 2022. Per The Real Deal, Halliday paid an LLC tied to “Bling Empire” cast members Christine and Dr. Gabriel Chiu $5.4 million for the then-vacant property in late 2018.
Dirt describes the property as a two-story reinforced concrete, composite wood, travertine and carved stone structure features six bedrooms and 10 baths in 20,000 square feet of feng shui-inspired living space boasting European floor-to-ceiling motorized frameless glass walls providing sweeping ocean views. There’s also hand-carved stone and wood walls, as well as living green walls, plus a 2,000-gallon exotic aquarium and 20,000-gallon koi pond.
Among the main-level highlights: a striking courtyard entryway that opens into a double-height foyer topped by a 30-foot-wide skylight. An expansive, glass-lined living space sports a linear fireplace, seated wet bar and temperature-controlled wine cellar, while a formal dining room seats up to 14, and a kitchen outfitted with an a pair of waterfall-edge marble eat-in islands and stainless appliances links to a “hidden” ancillary kitchen.
Upstairs, two primary bedroom suites come complete with private balconies, walk-in closets, and spa-like baths equipped with custom tubs and stone-clad showers. Elsewhere in the house is an office space, a gym, multi-purpose recreation room and Dolby Atmos movie theater; and outdoors, the resort-inspired backyard is laced with Zen-style gardens and water features, and hosts a kitchen and an al fresco dining setup, along with a grassy lawn flanking a 95-foot tiled infinity pool with a spa, Baja shelf and sunken fire-pit lounge. Rounding it all out: two four-car garages equipped with electric car-charging stations.
