Near the Serra foothills, the Serra Barn merges rustic beauty with a minimalist aesthetic. Located on two-and-a-half acres of land in the Malibu foothills, the residence was created by architect Michael Kovac and interior designer Vanessa Alexander, and was inspired by a classic Hamptons barn. Reclaimed wood and stone warm up the clean-lined home, which includes six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a poolside cabana and outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven. (Published Monday, Jul 25, 2011)
