Looking for luxury by the sea? You’ll find it in Malibu California. Stunning architecture, beautiful beachfront homes, and safe neighborhoods all make Malibu an ideal place to call home.
Malibu California and Los Angeles County. It’s about 30 miles west of downtown LA known for its unique Mediterranean climate and 21 miles of the Malibu coast. Home to Hollywood celebrities, high-profile clientele and beach-going retirees, this exclusive community offers an affluent life away from the city just yards from the Pacific coast. Overtime
Malibu is home to just over 12,000 residents with a median home value of about $2 million. 78% of residents own their own home and there are a variety of low-maintenance condominiums and villas, single-family homes, and beachfront estates.
But what is it like to actually live in Malibu?
“Malibu is a beautiful town with kind-hearted locals, a tight-knit community, and plenty of opportunities to be submerged in nature. Tourists see it as a “rich” town, but growing up in Malibu, I have known families from all different socioeconomic backgrounds. It is truly a magical place and a wonderful community to be a part of.”
“Malibu is a small town, full of cute small businesses. Everyone is willing to help each other and understands the value in supporting each other as well!” – Niche.com
Being about 30 miles from Los Angeles, Malibu is a much quieter, slower pace of life, yet you’re no more than an hour or so from the entertainment venues, nightlife, sports, and award-winning dining and shopping in downtown LA.
If you have children, the local school system is top-notch with those attending the Santa Monica – Malibu Unified School District. Most schools provide a terrific learning environment while preparing them for college life and beyond. Each school has its own ratings and reviews so if you’re looking to be within a specific zone or boundary, let us know and we would be happy to offer homes only within that district.
