Madeline Mackenzie’s Beach House in Big Little Lies
What’s all the fuss about this show anyway? For me, it’s about strong writing and acting as well as dreamy beachy backdrops. Vogue nails it, saying “It feels like CSI meets The Real Housewives and Million Dollar Listing, only better.”
Peachy Beachy style: Barefoot chic loveliness shines from an 80-foot wide stretch of beachfront on Malibu’s most exclusive beach.
Master Suite bonus points: Two master suites – both boast decks – one has a fireplace, and the other has a jacuzzi.
What you’re paying for: Savor the sound of white capped waves from every bedroom.There are six in the 6,000 square-foot main house. There’s also a detached guest house (950 suare feet) with a full kitchen.
