Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, is known for producing iconic movies like “E.T.,” “Jurassic Park,” and “Star Wars.” Frank Marshall has produced blockbusters such as “Back to the Future,” “Indiana Jones,” and “Jason Bourne.” This highly-decorated Hollywood couple have listed their Malibu, CA mansion for $18.5 million. Constructed in 1955, this mid-century modern home has retained its original charm. Situated on a private knoll covering 2.2 acres, 22575 Carbon Mesa Road is listed by Stanley Richman at Compass.
Located atop a prominent two-acre promontory, this legacy property embodies contemporary living in one of the world’s most sought-after coastal locales. The four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms span a single level. The home also includes a great room with exposed vaulted ceilings and Fleetwood sliders that lead to an infinity edge pool. Indoor/outdoor living takes precedence throughout, with nearly every room providing direct access to the outdoors, integrating the manicured grounds into the overall living experience.
This residence includes coveted membership rights to the La Costa Beach and Tennis Club. Nestled in the heart of Eastern Malibu, its proximity to town allows for an accessible commute, while also conveniently placing it near local hotspots such as Nobu, Little Beach House, Malibu Country Mart, and the anticipated Cross Creek Development.
The chef’s kitchen boasts a central island, full bar, mini bar, and fireplace, all opening up to outdoor spaces that feature a barbecue, custom fire pit, outdoor shower, and multiple lounging areas. The primary bedroom offers a private terrace, fireplace, walk-in closet with custom cabinetry, and an expansive bathroom equipped with a spa shower, soaking tub, skylights, and dual sinks.
The owners made minor cosmetic upgrades with the intent to preserve the original atmosphere. They also manicured the landscape to maximize the use of the outdoor space. The minimalistic interior is a reflection of the tranquil setting. Kennedy and Marshall have noted that one of their favorite aspects of the home is its quiet cul-de-sac location – a rare find in East Malibu.
The views are undoubtedly the most striking selling point of this Malibu property. The vista spans all the way from Point Dume and the Malibu Pier to Palos Verdes. Because the home is perched above the coastline, the raised horizon allows for an unobstructed ocean view. Quintessential mid-century floor-to-ceiling windows perfectly showcase the adjacent azure seaside.
Last purchased in 2015 for $9,750,000, the interior of this Malibu mansion covers 4,000 square feet. Equipped with modern upgrades like central air conditioning and an enclosed two-car garage, this home blends classic architecture with contemporary amenities. This retreat is rich with both classic and recent Hollywood history.
