But the unique residence is so much more than just an architectural novelty. “There really is an amazing energy up there,” says listing agent Earl Rangel of Coldwell Banker. Whether or not you believe in the power of the pyramid, the view alone inspires a peaceful sense of awe, he says.

Set atop a hill, the three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom residence has views of Malibu Canyon, Point Dume, and the Pacific Ocean. There’s often a spectacular vista of the coastal fog rolling in and out.

Located on 2 acres in the gated Saddle Peak community, the property features more than 25 fruit trees. There’s also an enclosed garden for herbs and vegetables.

The pyramid residence is flanked by decagonal-shaped stone towers, and the vistas are exceptional from the “Queen’s Chamber,” which features a massive skylight. This chamber, aka the master suite, also comes with his-and-her closets and a bathroom with sunken soaking tub.

On the lower level of the 2,989-square-foot residence, there’s a great room with concrete and slate-tiled flooring, as well as ample seating and windows.

An office resides in one of the stone towers, and a media room in the other.

Decagonal-shaped towers flank the pyramid home.

Besides its shape, the home has another awesome attribute: It earns its keep. According to Rangel, the home is in high demand with production companies and event planners. Many movies and TV shows request permission to shoot scenes there. These productions and special events offer the opportunity to bring in thousands of dollars per day.

Rangel says the homeowners have enjoyed living in the pyramid, but wanted to be closer to their teenager’s school. The home is located about midway between Malibu and Calabasas, and the winding roads that leading to the home are ideal for the buyer who desires a serene getaway. Not so much for a family responsible for ferrying a teenager back and forth.

“You feel like you’re on top of the world here,” says Rangel.
