Inside Kurt Rappaport’s Malibu Home

Reaching over six acres just outside of Tinseltown, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and tucked quietly against the horns of the Pacific Coast Highway, real-estate kingpin Kurt Rappaport and his fiancée, model Sarah Mutch, call their Malibu estate home. The majestic property surrounded by freestanding concrete pillars and lush greenery sits beautiful against the hillside and faces the sea below.

In an interview with Architectural Digest, designer Scott Mitchell, who started cultivating the property shortly after Rappaport bought the land eight years ago, said, “I’m obsessed with the ways that buildings express the subtle qualities of the materials used in their construction. This house is all about honoring the integrity of concrete and glass while creating a rhythmic interplay between those materials and the landscape.”

And honor, it does. Inside, the 15,000-square-foot home features a masterful living room, luxurious bathroom, a separate wing of bedrooms for Rappaport’s children, a basement game room and home theater and two adjoining pavilions for private guests suites.

Once outside, it’s impossible not to take in the perfectly manicured lawn and picturesque heaven. A 168-foot-long infinity pool beckons you to go for a dip – and it’s rumored to be the longest residential pool in California. Mitchell added, “Considering the breadth of the site and the linearity of the house, the pool had to be a big gesture.”

But it’s hard to tell which gesture is biggest: the expansive, breathtaking indoors – or the sprawling, magnificent outdoors. Either way, we’re sold.
