This beguiling, Frank Gehry-designed residence, which sits right on the shore of an exclusive stretch of Malibu Beach, is now up for grabs. The 11,413-square-foot beachfront estate originally appeared on the market three years ago but failed to snag a buyer at the original price of $57.5 million. The property was delisted in 2014 after a price drop, but now reappears on the market at a much more affordable $33.9 million.

According to Curbed, the home was originally built for insurance executive Burton Borman in 1989 on a prime 1.46-acre with 160 feet of beachfront. Gehry’s distinctive asymmetrical style is visible in nearly every architectural detail of the residence, including the very prominent mushroom cap. The centerpiece of the house is a massive spiral staircase that stretches up from the bottom level. The property also features three levels of generously-sized patio and plenty of large windows and skylights. Beyond immediate beach access, the home also boasts a lap pool and a full tennis court.
