With ‘90s trends coming back in style everywhere you look, from scrunchies to fanny packs, the decade’s cool architecture is more in vogue than ever. Each decade is characterized by a distinct architectural motivation, and the 1990s represented both a reaction to the past and an optimism for the future. Assuaging the visual excess of the 1980s, while embracing optimism about a recovering economy, the decade was a clear transition from the 20th to 21st century. Through a desire to create homes that complemented rather than competed with the landscape, a new sense of realness and approachable elegance began. This Malibu estate listed for $15.996 million is a prime example of that shift and ‘90s sensibility in general, which is perhaps why it has been used for filming in multiple hit films and TV shows.Offering 3.5 acres and 12,000-square-feet in magnificent Malibu Park, this sleek abode is picture perfect. It’s no surprise that its clean, contemporary design and breathtaking views have long been adored by producers, appearing in movies and television series like Ray Donovan
, She’s All That
, and The Assassination of Gianni Versace
.If there was a hall of fame for film locations, the views from this house would be the winners. Is there any more memorable cinematic moment than the final scene of the original Planet of the Apes? Just go outside and look into the distance to see Point Dume, the spot where it was famously filmed. Keeping looking to see more iconic filming locations. Baywatch’s second home, there isn’t a more notable view in Malibu than Zuma Beach.Perhaps the most impressive part of this Malibu house is the privilege of seeing California sunsets over the water, enhanced by 20-foot tall ceiling to floor glass windows. For those who love to entertain or host visitors, there is a 200+ guest party room, a private 70-foot long pool and spa, and magnificent living quarters including six bedrooms and baths in the main house and a 2,000-square-foot guest house with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths.Embrace this estate’s tranquility, star-quality, and sumptuous privacy. As the saying goes, “Life is Simple, Just Add Water”…and $15,996 million.Amy Alcini, Ryan Jancula, and Trevor Montano of Compass
