You will not believe this property in prime coastal Malibu! it’s like you stepped back into the 1800′s or maybe early 1900′s.

It sits on the Encinal Bluff and has 2 legal parcels: one with this throwback to last century  house, complete with incredible antiques. Can surely be a museum if there is an aficionado of that era out there willing to conserve it. It belonged to one of John Wayne’s  double . Clearly a fan of the cowboy aesthetic!

The next door parcel that comes with the property and goes down to the beach offers the opportunity to be developed separately if desired.  This is a truly unique Real Estate opportunity in Malibu. Take a look:

Moderate prices is Not the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks about Malibu Real Estate. However for the savvy buyer, the celebrity enclave, studded with multi-million dollar estates along the beaches and  beautiful canyons offers more value and potential upside than any of the competing luxury markets in the Los Angeles area. Take a look at some of the figures:

In the past year Santa Monica’s  Median home price jumped from $1,892,000 to $2,299,000 during the same period (January-September, in 2014 to 2015), that was a 21.5% price increase,  meanwhile price per square foot during the same period increased by 17% to $1,114/Sq Ft and a 42 day average time on the market,  In the Pacific Palisades the Median went from $2,542,500 to $2,875,000, a 13% increase while the price per SqFt increased by nearly 11%  to $993 and properties stayed and average of 57 days on the market. In Beverly Hills the Median climbed to $4,877,000 from $4,300,000, a 13.5% appreciation, while the price per square foot came up around 15% to $1,370 with  houses sitting 85 days on the Market. In Malibu by contrast, if you included beach front and land side properties, you would see a mostly flat market with price increases in the low single digits and and average of 143 days to close. Beach properties in particular, stayed longer on the market and the Median price, so far this year, has actually declined to $5,175,000, an 18% drop from last year. The Median for land side properties have mostly remained stable hovering around the $2,200, 000  and even the fabled Point Dume area has quieted down with a median now approaching $4,300,000 a 14% drop from last year and a 5% drop in the average price per square foot to $1,440.

Of course you may want to have a wider perspective of the real estate market in the Los Angeles area to appreciate the value proposition. Here is a great article posted on Curbed  that covers the wider Los Angeles housing market.

Malibu is indeed a luxury market of it’s own.  While properties s do not move as quickly as in other luxury areas in Los Angeles,  when families choose to be here, it’s usually for life. It is a community. It is “a way of life” as we say…nothing better in sight!

Take a glimpse at these three examples of homes priced at the median range:
