Affordable classic houses & big rural properties in the mountains just north of Santa Monica. An eclectic mix of offerings from Topanga’s hippie past and more gentrified future. You’ll also find an increasing number of striking contemporary properties and other styles here without Malibu’s price tag.
Townhomes and condos of every description including a mix of luxury and older units on the surf and sand fromTopanga Canyon to Downtown Malibu and mostly later developments from Pepperdine to Zuma Beach and Trancas. There are far fewer condominiums in Malibu than there are single family homes and they tend to be located by the coast around PCH in general. Prices start at around a half million dollars
Like Malibu, there’s plenty of land available the coastal mountains around Topanga Canyon including a number of buildable properties for several hundred thousand dollars and some extraordinary, panoramic sea-view parcels suitable for a private estate, compound, ranch, or vineyard at substantially less than Malibu prices.
Both Malibu and Topanga Canyon have very few multi-unit income properties... and usually even fewer for sale at any given time. It’s impossible to characterize the variety of opportunities that come up though newer income properties tend to be less common.
Cottages, compounds, and suburban tract houses from Malibu’s past can still be found around Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and up in the hills with spectacular sea views and potential for appreciation. It usually takes at least well over million dollars to get anywhere near the ocean in Malibu, but many less expensive homes are still available.
You’ll also find wide variety of newer custom homes, horse properties, and other opportunites from
Malibu to Zuma Beach and Ventura County Line.
There is a staggering amount of land for sale on the coast and in the Santa Monica Mountains around Malibu. Smaller buildable lots, many with outstanding views, can be found in the hills and canyons and larger prime lots including seaside properties on the bluffs and beaches and major acreage on the hillsides overlooking the Pacific ocean are what Malibu is all about.

Malibu was once ‘the’ classic California surf town. Today it’s home to an incredible variety of sprawling sea ranches and dramatic shoreline mansions for nearly twenty miles along the Pacific Coast Highway just north of Los Angeles. Though much of of ‘Old Malibu’ is still intact and good deals can be found on some of the older post-war tract homes by the beach and up in the hills, Malibu now has more celebrities than the Cannes Film Festival and the price of admission is going up.
Its probably worth noting that Malibu features more contemporary luxury properties for sale than any other place in the city, mainly because of the abundance of raw land. This amazing coastal community may seem like its own world to some and is more rural than many people expect, but that’s why its the still best way to get away from it all without really leaving town.
Many of the coastal canyons in the area also have a number of homes and ranches from older, less expensive houses and cottages to many much newer and more ambitious ‘trophy’ properties. This is the case in Decker, Encinal, Latigo, Coral, Las Flores, and particularly Topanga Canyon which has a unique history of it’s own.
Topanga is the most populated of the coastal canyons and is also the closest to Santa Monica. It used to be the main route from the San Fernando Valley through the mountains to the beach before the Freeways and development of Kanan Dune Road. ‘Old’ Topanga and a scattering of homesteads and ranches existed long before the canyon’s reputation as a hippie enclave emerged in the 1960’s. Like Malibu, Topanga Canyon today is a mixture of it’s rural past and gentrified future.

‘Old’ Malibu consists of the original village and pier about 15 miles from the city and hand full of homes and ranches scattered in the hillsides. This also loosely includes a few later, modest suburban post-war developments by the Village and around Zuma Beach to the north, and a large number of stilt homes built right on the surf to the west of the Coast Highway from Palisades to Malibu.
All of these properties were built before Coastal Commission regulations enacted in the late 1960’s and 70’s which imposed a near ban on building in the area for 20 years. Properties built before this time are typically less expensive though many enjoy extraordinary views, beach access, or a secluded country feel. The exceptions to this are many of the upgraded ‘surf’ and hill homes, a hand full of luxury homes and estates built on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific from the Village north to Zuma Beach, and of course Malibu Colony which was originally a built as an unassuming tract of beach houses that now boasts more celebrities than the Cannes Film Festival.
Malibu is probably the most famous Southern California surf town because of the dozens of TV shows and movies that have been filmed there starting with ‘Gidget’ over 50 years ago.. The ‘real’ Malibu is actually far more interesting than the image. It stretches for 15 to 20 miles northwest of Los Angeles along Pacific Coast Highway One hugging the coastline between the Santa Monica Mountains and the sea. Though Malibu has been getting increasingly populated and a lot more ‘high-end’ over the last 25 years, its still more rural and isolated than people think. It takes at least 15 or 20 minutes to drive to to Santa Monica in the city from Malibu under good conditions and can take significantly longer during rush hour or on the weekends in the summertime.
Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu Colony, Old Malibu,
Much of the building in Malibu over the last 25 years has been distinctly ‘high-end.’ Modern office buildings and chic boutiques have redefined the old Village and sparkling new Malls and shopping centers have replaced older developments. A far greater proportion of newer and contemporary properties are available in Malibu than anywhere else in Los Angeles because of all the first time construction there. Lots and Land are also available at every price point.
Newer condominium and housing tracts have gone up from Malibu to Zuma Beach and custom built luxury homes now dot the hillsides. There’s also been an explosion of mega estates and ranch properties in Malibu over the last 25 years on the the bluffs and promontories overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Real estate sales have been recovering in Malibu over the last couple years and the volume of estate and luxury home sales over $10M was surprisingly consistent throughout 2009 and 2010. On the other hand, fewer closings of premier properties have taken place in 2011 and an increasing inventory high-end listings for sale in this legendary beach town may mean that prices will continue to go down on Malibu’s finest estates...
