The futuristic home seen in Season 3 of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” is on the market for $5.695 million in Malibu, Calif., according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
“Star Trek: The Next Generation” was a science-fiction TV series that ran from 1987 to 1994. During its run, it garnered 19 Emmy Awards, two Hugo Awards, five Saturn Awards (by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films) and a Peabody Award. It was the first syndicated TV series to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series.
A number of films grew out of its popularity, including “Generations,” “Insurrection” and “Nemesis” as well as the TV series “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”
Designed by architect Ellis David Gelman, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom contemporary takes advantage of a two-acre lot that looks out toward the Pacific Ocean. The 3,699-square-foot house’s angular design creates a dramatic interior with views through a number of floor-to-ceiling windows, sliding glass doors and several circular and triangular-shaped windows.
“Although it is ultramodern, it is very functional,” said listing agent Ani Dermenjian of Coldwell Banker. “You walk in, and it’s an extremely smooth and flowing floor plan. [The property] is on a lot of flat land, which is very hard to find in Malibu. You have room to put a pool, tennis courts or horse facilities.“
A floating staircase at the entrance adds to the futuristic feel of the home.
The continuity of the slate tiles that lead from the 440-foot terrace to the open-plan kitchen add to the sense of flow. Slate tile on the floors in the double-height living room match the fireplace surround and the tiles on the outdoor deck. An upper-level loft looks down to the main living area, giving an airy feel to the entire upstairs.
The dining area has a wine fridge and counter for serving drinks. Near the dining area is room for a piano or second lounge area as well as wall space to hang large pieces of art.
The main kitchen has a stone countertop with wooden cabinets that match the wood ceiling of the living and dining areas. A second kitchenette is near the media room for easy access to serving guests.
The master bedroom has slate tile floors, a fireplace and enough wall space for an oversize TV. Adjacent to the master bedroom is this large bathroom with a bathtub positioned for taking in the views.
The house also has a Sonos sound system, lavender and rose garden and a two-car garage with enough outside parking for 10 more cars. A detached structure on the property is currently used as an office and workout area but can easily be converted to a guesthouse.
A glass-framed, 440-foot-long deck has views of the ocean.
