Malibu Homes for Sale
Affectionately called “the ‘Bu” by residents and surfers, Malibu is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities not just in Los Angeles County, but throughout the West Coast. Malibu has magnificent views of the Santa Monica Mountains to the north and the vast Pacific Ocean to the south. An affluent beach city, a large number of A-list movie stars and other entertainment industry heavyweights make Malibu their home.
Boasting over 20 miles of spectacular Pacific coastline, Malibu is known for its great beaches and numerous surf spots where you can get your tan and your stoke on. With just over 12,000 residents, the city has a close-knit residential community that will not hesitate to welcome you into their fold.
With its unbeatable location, it’s no wonder why Malibu real estate typically ranks among the most expensive in L.A. County. If you’re looking for a home that’s less than a million dollars, you won’t find a lot of choices here since the median sales price for homes in Malibu has been over $1 million for years. With its majestic views, gorgeous beaches, and a relaxing and still somewhat rural vibe, Malibu is worth it.
If money is no object, there are plenty of listings to choose from. These range from multimillion-dollar dream beachfront properties on Carbon Beach, famously known as “Billionaires’ Beach,” to beautiful, supremely private residences in the gated Malibu Colony neighborhood. Wherever you opt to purchase property in, you could very well end up with an A-list celebrity as your neighbor.
Apart from the many coves and beaches, there are plenty of other open spaces in the city. There’s the 32-acre Pointe Dume Nature Preserve, Solstice Canyon Park, the 532-acre Charmlee Wilderness Park, and many other city and state parks, all of which offer residents and visitors plenty of activities such as mountain-biking, hiking, and horseback-riding. For the thrill-seeker, road cycling in the Pacific Coast Highway is popular albeit a little dangerous.
Shop and dine at the Malibu Colony Plaza, Malibu Country Mart, the Malibu Lumber Yard, and more. There are numerous restaurants and tasting rooms strewn throughout the city and there’s even a golf course, the Malibu Golf Club.
