Judah Hertz—founder of Hertz Investment Group—has put his Balinese contemporary-style Malibu escape up for sale this summer. The house is asking $65 million; a stout price, even for coastal Malibu. But the lot is a big one for this neighborhood—1.22 acres between PCH and beach, ample space for a leisurely drive and a sprawling, single-floor house of 10,000 square feet. And plenty of room left over for landscaping a very private little estate in one of the more desirable corners of the country.
The 2016-built house contains five bedrooms and at least six baths. Interiors begin with a meditation entry before becoming glitzily ornate within the confines of the style; hand-carved wood accents, fireplaces, Asian-inspired light fixtures, and glossy finishes are details of note. Highlights of the amenities list include a full bar with cane wall covering, a green pattern ceiling, and a tile floor, a lower level dedicated to media and entertaining, and a library with carved built-in bookshelves.
Outside, a patio, spa, and pool and cabana are situated within the lawns and privacy landscaping. A two-bedroom guest house, tennis court, and four-car garage fill out the property.
