One of Latin America’s most prolific film producers is listing his estate atop Malibu’s Point Dume with an eye-catching $32.5 million pricetag. Alex Garcia, founder and president of Colombia-based AG Studios — whose latest hits include Amazon Prime Video’s “Jack Ryan” and Telemundo’s “La Reina Del Sur” — purchased the property back in 2013 for $17 million, which means the Mexico City native is likely to reel in a hefty profit should the place fetch near its asking price, even with renovations and holding costs included.
Built in 1999, the ocean-view mansion is situated at the end of an epically long gated driveway that winds past tropical plants before emptying into a spacious motorcourt flanked by a three-car garage. The 1.35-acre estate comes with key access to one of the area’s three private and gated beaches, and offers living spaces rife with soaring ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, walls of windows and French doors to allow for seamless indoor-outdoor living.
A double door opens into a wood columned foyer, which features a step-down living room on one side and formal chandeliered dining room on the other. Abutting the dining area is a gourmet kitchen outfitted with white quartz countertops, a large waterfall-edge island with bar seating, stainless appliances, a butler’s pantry and breakfast nook.
Adjoining the kitchen is a sunken, ocean-view family room with a fireplace, wet bar and French doors leading to the backyard. The main level also includes a duo of ensuite bedrooms, including a ground-level master with a terrace, fireside seating area, and a skylit bath. The second floor holds four additional bedrooms, each of which opens onto a wraparound balcony.
The lower level is ready to party with an expansive media room and a second kitchen. There’s also bar seating, plus a projector and built-in surround sound, although the most notable feature is a window with direct underwater views into the swimming pool. Out back, the grounds showcase an ocean-view infinity-edge pool and spa, multiple seating areas, a built-in Lynx barbecue, firepit and deck with an additional fire feature.
The house is also just steps to the beach via a secluded golf-cart trail. And for live-in staff and security team members — commonplace at this price range — there’s also a three-bedroom, two-bath guesthouse equipped with a kitchen and spacious living areas, plus an outdoor shower, vegetable garden, in-ground trampoline and one-car garage.
The listing is held by Chris Cortazzo of Compass.
