You’re invited: step inside a jaw-dropping $95 million house in Malibu
In sunny Malibu, a newly developed neighborhood is shaping up to become the priciest and most exclusive community in the country. Dubbed The Case, the five-home, guard-gated community sits on a 24-acre bluff that’s hailed as one of Malibu’s absolute best locations.
So much so, that developer Scott Gillen paid $50 million for the land alone back in 2017, breaking local records: it was the highest price ever paid for undeveloped land in the city.
On his newly acquired land, Gillen set out to build 5 extraordinary homes, each priced between $70 million and $115 million. The first fully completed home at The Case in Malibu was the 10,527-square-foot The Edge, which landed on the market with a bang at the beginning of the year — asking $70 million.
Now, it’s time for us to take a look at another spectacular house from Gillen’s ambitious project: the $95 million Butterfly House.
Named after its butterfly roof, the striking luxury home offers more than 10,000 square feet of ultra-luxurious living space and sits on 3 flat acres of prime Malibu land with unparalleled ocean views.
“The Butterfly is located at the end of Case Court overlooking the Malibu Colony and Surfrider Beach and you can see the surf breaking, with entire Santa Monica Bay unfolding with views that extend to Palos Verdes and Catalina Island with twinkling city lights at night,” developer Scott Gillen said of his newly-unveiled project, adding that “The Case is literally 2 minutes from the best shopping and dining in Malibu and the design and construction of the homes at The Case are incomparable.”
Combining world-class, modern architecture with the surrounding natural beauty of the Malibu cliffs and coastline, the Butterfly House is the epitome of luxury living in an idyllic coastal setting.
Perched on the tip of a 24-acre promontory to provide panoramic views of the Malibu coastline and vistas of the famous Queen’s Necklace, the property is accessed via two sets of guarded gates that lead visitors and future residents onto a 250-foot driveway.
All in all, the luxury property has a total of 7 bedrooms and 8 baths, spread across the main house (which has 4 en-suite bedrooms) and a separate guest house.
The open-concept great room seamlessly combines the kitchen, family, and living room, creating an inviting space for relaxation and entertainment. The custom Bulthaup kitchen has been equipped with Gaggenau and Miele appliances and features a separate prep kitchen, perfect for cooking enthusiasts.
The Butterfly House’s dramatic primary suite is a true sanctuary, featuring a cozy fireplace, a luxurious bathroom with poured terrazzo floors, a massive, oversized closet, and even a private outdoor spa. An additional media room provides extra entertainment space.
Adding to its Iron Man house vibes, the Butterfly House also features a gym and bathroom below the pool area and an underground 3-car garage with a motor court capable of accommodating over a dozen vehicles.
Heading outside, we find a massive 133-foot infinity pool that makes the most out of its oceanside location and that comes with a spa and fire features.
Listed for $95 million with Westside Estate Agency’s Stephen Shapiro and Kurt Rappaport (the agent who reportedly arranged Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s record-breaking $200 million Malibu house purchase just a few months back) this extraordinary home is one of California’s priciest listings.
Surpassed only by a handful of properties, including another Malibu showstopper — former Disney CEO Michael Eisner’s estate, listed for $195 million (!) — and late TV producer Aaron Spelling’s The Manor, listed for $155 million, the Butterfly House, much like its neighboring homes at The Case, is a status symbol. And we’re looking forward to seeing who its lucky owner will be.
