Post Ranch Inn sits among the country’s most otherworldly views, but it never...

Malibu is known for its stunning homes and celebrity residents. But there is one mansion that just hit the market that outshines all the rest. Even the experts agree. That's because the Marisol Modern Estate—listed for $27.5 million—won multiple awards from the PCBC, the country's most prestigious builder's conference.

This Doug Burdge-designed home was the winner of PCBC's 2015 Grand Award (Best on the Boards Custom Home), making it officially one of the most stunning homes in Southern California. And it's easy to see why. The one-of-a-kind Malibu icon features seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and over 9,700 square feet of space along the pristine coastline. Plus, it combines the feel of a luxury resort with tranquil oceanside living.

Those luxe details include lush tropical landscaping allowing you to instantly escape from the busy Los Angeles life before entering the house where you're greeted with a wall of glass. Panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean take your breath away as you make your way through the ample open common space that consists of a chef's kitchen, billiards room, formal dining room, and living room. Those views continue upstairs in the master suite and bath, where it feels as if the waves are crashing at your feet.

Incredibly, those glass walls open entirely, allowing for seamless indoor/outdoor living. You step out onto a deck with a 67-foot infinity-edge pool between two bungalows complete with fireplaces from the common area. There's also an outdoor bar and BBQ spot on the main level. The glass walls open in the master suite as well, where you'll find a private deck with that perfect coastal breeze. The gym, office, and two guest bedrooms also have private terraces to enjoy ocean and coastline views.
