Many architects, builders and designers know that using salvaged materials for a new-home project is one of the most sustainable building practices available. Whether it’s old brick, old slate and tile roofing, wood structures and siding, or windows and doors, saving these materials from our landfills lets us all live a little more lightly on the land.

From the intense heat required to bake the bricks to the power needed to drive the saws that cut the wood, home-building materials take vast amounts of energy to manufacture. So recapturing that energy and using it again and again means we burn less oil and gas, spewing less carbon into the atmosphere.

While it’s good to be green, it’s a plus when we craft something beautiful at the same time. The depth of color, patina and richness of salvaged materials are also design factors that can make our homes truly wonderful.

One of the nice aspects of reusing a salvaged material like Chicago brick is how each piece takes on its own

personality. It’s as if each individual brick were carefully hand made by an artisan.

Malibu is a very diverse real estate market. We have condos starting in the mid $300,000 and homes going all the way up t $65 million and everything in between.

Malibu is welcoming to everyone that wants to make it their home. Although our geography limits who can actually live here day-to-day, for those lucky ones life takes on a very special rhythm.

Here families can relax a little more as moms will not be fighting rush hour traffic when picking up their kids from school and the youngsters grow up in the security of knowing that their friends are here to stay. They usually will be together from Kindergarten through highschool.

So for the average family what does $2 million dollars get you in Malibu? Here are 3 examples but don’t stop here. After you have taken a look at these  go on the the neighborhood searches on this site and see what is special about each neighborhod and what is available there right now.

My first example is this Cape Cod Style home off of Broad Beach:

Ocean-view home, located in the highly desirable Broad Beach area. Chef’s kitchen features granite counter tops, Subzero refrigerator, Wolf range, Franke stainless steel, and opens to a spacious ocean-view dining area. The main living room area is open and bright, with a custom granite fireplace and a deck overlooking the sea. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a media/family room opening out to landscaped gardens.  An excellent location, with convenient access to one of Malibu’s most gorgeous sandy beaches. Owner will consider carrying a first with 35% down.

The Next great buy is a warm and charming Malibu home on approximately two acres with lovely mountain views.

It features 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, wide plank pine floors, vaulted ceilings and inviting decks. Close to schools and beaches.

Moving on to the beach Waterfront home with spectacular, unobstructed panoramic views, includes land ownership. Totally redone granite kitchen and baths, hardwood floors, walls of glass that open from wall to wall, and a new roof. Generous decks off living room and master bedroom overlook the ocean and Catalina Island. A private staircase accesses a huge, ocean level deck and private beach. Move-in perfect, this is California beach living at it’s best!

Sorry, but we couldn't find any results in the MLS that match the specified search criteria.
