A brand new house on the true property market in Malibu, California, for $13.99 million comes with a number of cool additions, together with a monarch butterfly sanctuary that’s certain to assuage the soul.
Not to say the truth that the five-bedroom, 6.5-plus-bathroom property comes with an underground tunnel so you possibly can escape to the seaside unnoticed.
“Stunning new compound nestled in the beautiful, gated enclave of Ramirez Canyon, just moments from the beach,” the itemizing on Douglas Elliman says.
“Set on 1.6 private acres, this warm, thoughtful new construction is the perfect place to relax and retreat with its resort-style pool area and expansive eucalyptus grove, certified as a monarch butterfly sanctuary. Private tunnel access below the PCH allows for easy access to the beach.”
The home was licensed as a sanctuary for the bugs, itemizing agent Mark Kitching advised the Sacramento Bee.
“This unique property has been certified by the Malibu Coastal Commission as a sanctuary for butterflies making their way to or from Canada to South California,” Kitching stated. “It’s typically between the months of October and March when the eucalyptus trees are covered with monarchs.”
