Zero-Carbon ‘Modern Ranch’ in Malibu, California, Sold for $23 Million


A multi-acre eco-friendly property in Malibu, California sold on Monday for $23 million, according to public records.

The six-bedroom, nine-bathroom, 14,400-square-foot home is part of the MariSol Malibu Zero Series, a collection of four zero-carbon homes being built in Marisol Malibu, a small community with a total of 17 homes. The estate sits on 2.48 acres with landscaping as well as ocean views, and was built with recycled concrete and sustainable timber, according to marketing materials.

“We’re committed to minimizing our impact on the planet and creating lasting value,” Scott Morris, a member of the Crown Pointe Estates development team who also acted as a broker on the sale, told Mansion Global. “Our whole purpose and mission is to accelerate the advent of zero-carbon construction.”

Designed by architect Doug Burdge in a “modern ranch” style, according to the listing, the majority of the home’s living spaces and bedrooms feature large windows with extensive views, as well as 20-foot ceilings with skylights in the open living, kitchen, and dining entertaining area, according to listing photos.

An indoor/outdoor layout incorporates natural elements into the home’s overall design, including a covered, landscaped outdoor dining patio. An organic vegetable garden, orchard and apiary are included on the home’s grounds, as is a heated saltwater pool, a basketball court, a bocce court, and golf greens and a driving range, per the listing.

The home is 100% electric and includes Tesla batteries, electric vehicle charging and solar panels, as well as a water filtration and a hospital-grade Merv 13 ventilation system.

The property first listed for $32 million in July 2021, according to records, with the asking price later dropping down to $28.5 million and then $24.5 million. Following the price cut, “We received multiple offers, and sold it about 50% faster than we’ve sold the rest of the homes in the community,” Mr. Morris said. The buyer could not be identified.

“We had already sold 13 properties in Marisol before we embarked on the final four, which we’re calling the Zero Series,” Mr. Morris said. “We decided in 2019 to do something different, and that if we were going to build another house we would do it in the most responsible way possible.”

The home is the first Zero Carbon Ready Certified home in California as designated by the Seattle-based International Future Living Institute.

Other amenities include a theater room, gym, two refrigerated wine rooms, a “Zoom room,” and a voice activated control system, according to marketing materials. The home has been furnished as well as curated with paintings by Los Angeles-based artists.
