Philanthropist Steve Hilton, a grandson of late hotel scion Conrad Hilton and the former president of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, has put his oceanfront home in Malibu, Calif., on the market for $10.4 million.

Found within gated Malibu Cove Colony, the three-story house was renovated in 2010 by architect Jay Vanos and has surf-facing decks extending off each floor. Sweeping views take in the nearby Paradise Cove Pier, coastline and Catalina Island.

The 3,385 square feet of refined interiors feature walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, light hardwood floors and cabinets built to resemble art installations. Adding an exotic touch, a circular staircase wraps around a custom saltwater aquarium at the entrance to the home.

An open living room with a fireplace, a modern chef’s kitchen, an office/den, four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms lie within the floor plan. The master suite has a fireplace, a sitting area and a glass-enclosed steam shower.

Skylights and glass partitions filter natural light throughout the interiors.

A walled courtyard sits off the entrance and contains a tiled hot tub and an outdoor fireplace. There’s also an attached two-car garage.

Hilton bought the house from the estate of late actor Robert Ridgely in 2007 for $7.1 million. An avid surfer, he intends to find a new home closer to his favorite surfing spot.

Hilton joined the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation in 1983 and oversaw the foundation’s worldwide humanitarian work. He previously held the positions of chief executive and president for the foundation before retiring at the end of 2015.
