The First of Five Architectural Masterpieces at The Case, Malibu’s Only New Guard Gate Community in Decades, Lists for $69.995 Million


After more than a decade in approvals, design, and construction, Scott Gillen, visionary home designer, creator and founder of Unvarnished, has listed for sale the first of five estates in the 24-acre private enclave known as The Case. The first guard gated community built in Malibu in decades, The Case comprises five spectacular mid-century modern inspired homes perched above The Colony on Malibu’s most coveted oceanfront bluff and represents the largest private residential development in its history. The Edge, on the market for $69.995 million, will be the first home completed within the community and will be delivered turnkey, providing the buyer instant gratification of unprecedented luxury and hand-crafted design perfection. All five bespoke homes are currently under construction, with the remaining homes slated for full completion throughout the year.

“The Case is my largest and most epic project to date. The opportunity to create a community of five homes on one of, if not the best bluff top on the California coast, was something I could not pass up. Frankly, ten minutes after I stepped on the property, I knew I would buy it,” said Scott Gillen, the founder of Unvarnished. “The sheer size of the property and the ability to build 10,000 to 12,000-square foot single story homes created immense challenges and unbelievable opportunities for me to take some of my foundational design principles--use of warm natural materials, a nod toward mid-century modern, large, opened spaces, lots of natural light and blurring the line between indoors and out-- which are also tenets of mid-century modern architecture--to the next level. So, it was natural that my designs for The Edge, and the other homes at The Case, take enormous inspiration from mid-century modern architecture, and then I incorporate construction techniques and furnishings, the quality of which are rarely, if ever, found in new development, to create a unique experience of luxury living on the coast of Malibu, a place unlike anywhere else in the world. I’m very proud of how The Edge has turned out and I’m incredibly excited to bring it to market.”

The 2.6-acre estate, providing cinematic views of the Queen’s necklace, Palos Verdes to Point Dume, embodies the essence of casual luxury living. Spanning approximately 10,500 square feet, the single-story home offers five ensuite bedrooms and three half baths, and includes a Bulthaup chef’s kitchen, expansive great room, a master bedroom with outdoor spa, and floor to ceiling glass doors that open to a 10,000-square foot Ipe deck with cabana and outdoor kitchen.

The Edge, named for its stunning nearly 80-foot double-sided infinity edge freshwater pool that juts out like a diving board into the Pacific Ocean, with famed Catalina Island in the distance, is architecturally inspired by the giants of mid-century modern, Lloyd Wright, Neutra, Lautner and Quincy Jones, to name but a few. The magnificent home also includes hand-picked custom furnishings by Minotti and Gillen, Miele and Gaggenau appliances, custom cabinets, a 650-bottle teak wine room, a glass and teak enclosed private library, and a home theatre that is a room “floating” inside another room to achieve the ultimate home cinema experience.

The Case is the crown jewel of Scott Gillen’s visionary Malibu Series, where each home is a sanctuary unto itself. Behind its 24-hour manned guard gate and security features designed by international renowned security expert Gavin de Becker, residents of The Case will live with ultimate peace of mind and privacy.

The Case comprises five distinct mid-century modern homes: The Cantilever House (Case Study No. 1), The Butterfly House (Case Study No. 2), The Edge (Case Study No. 3), The Flat House (Case Study No. 4) and The Glass Tunnel (Case Study No. 5).
