Welcome to Casa Mira Sol—a new-construction home with views of California’s coast spanning from Palos Verdes to Malibu. Tranquility sets the backdrop for this two-story residence, with ocean breezes that can be felt from every room in the house. In collaboration with M StudioHouse interior design, a Southern California-based custom builder created this distinctive home that denotes not only quality craftsmanship but also contemporary aesthetics.
Located in Malaga Cove, this 4-bedroom, 4½-bath, 3,800-square-foot dwelling presents the latest in style and sophistication. The grand entrance welcomes you into an open-concept living, dining and kitchen area. A handcrafted terra-cotta tile fireplace with antiqued patina warms the space.
Whether you’re a home cook or a master chef, Casa Mira Sol’s kitchen is a dream with Sub-Zero Wolf appliances and a butler’s kitchen equipped with an additional dishwasher, stove and designer sink where you can enjoy the unparalleled ocean views while tidying up those dishes. The color palette of Benjamin Moore White Dove and Farrow & Ball Off-Black in the kitchen accents the marble-like quartz waterfall island. Marina Accardo and Michelle Tumlin, the designers of M StudioHouse, continued the color scheme throughout the home, along with simple yet elegant lighting—creating a luxurious, resort-like feel.
The powder bathroom boasts on-point wallpaper and an open-vanity sink—marrying classic style and modern flair. On the main level, the showpiece master bathroom offers a timeless, traditional look interpreted in a modern way—from the exquisite floor-to-ceiling Spanish tile by Walker Zanger to the double waterfall vanities and Carrara marble-style quartz shower seat.
To take advantage of the grand views, a Peloton bike is located near the master bedroom balcony. The laundry and family rooms are conveniently located on the lower level centered between three bedrooms, all with exclusive views of the ocean.
“At this time in our lives, home has never been more important, and you’ll find it in Palos Verdes.”
The home lends itself to indoor-outdoor living with retractable LaCantina glass doors off the main living areas. Stroll outside and dip your toes into the infinity-edge lap pool with dimensional square white tile cleverly designed to appear seamless with the ocean. The designers added organic raised vegetable and herb gardens that beckon you to enjoy your meal alfresco. A built-in BBQ kitchen and seat walls extend the culinary experience and offer a fun space to entertain.
However, the most impressive feature of the home is the view. This romantic residence boasts picture-postcard views of the Queen’s Necklace, the sunset, the Channel Islands and the beach communities from nearly every room in the house. This west-facing house gazes down on the Pacific Ocean, so sunset views of lavender skies are visible throughout—hence the name Casa Mira Sol.
The builder, golfing one day in Palos Verdes, stumbled upon this charming community and recognized the opportunity to build a significant, modern, coastal home that would complement the rich history of Palos Verdes. He took his time with this passion project, knowing he wanted to develop custom homes in this prestigious yet little-known neighborhood.
What attracts people—in particular families—to Palos Verdes is the lifestyle. You’re within a mile of the beach and just minutes from the Redondo Pier and some of the world’s best country clubs and golf communities. Yet you feel miles away.
“Residents enjoy easy access to gourmet grocery stores, shopping and great eateries, all while living in what feels like an oasis beach town community,” says Realtor Tony Accardo. “At this time in our lives, home has never been more important, and you’ll find it in Palos Verdes.”
For those who enjoy an active lifestyle, the community boasts some of the most picturesque hiking trails—often compared to the Amalfi Coast. If you want more speed, grab your mountain bike or horse as there are designated trails for those activities too.
“Searches for homes with pools has tripled, and families are requesting more space including home offices, media rooms and butler’s kitchens for at-home entertaining,” Tony shares. “Casa Mira Sol checks a lot of boxes. We are not only selling new construction but a lifestyle.”
The temperate weather and exclusive public and private schools make this community a favorite for families relocating from Palisades, Manhattan Beach and other Beach Cities. With easy access to the freeway and the Redondo Riviera, your new house will beckon you home day after day.
