The styles of Malibu beach houses run the gamut, from simple and cozy, to extreme designs that combine the modernism of the city with the nature of Malibu.
The best Malibu beach houses offer updated technology, space for simple or luxury living, unique design, privacy, and, of course, the best views around.
Here are some examples of the best Malibu beach houses that embrace these ideals:
Malibu beach houses on the market today are a mix of new construction and older homes. The newer homes, and many updated older homes, include the most modern of touches—integrating technology in almost every aspect of living.
Remote-controlled windows, voice-controlled lights, photovoltaic panels, and high-end security features are just some of the added features that make these Malibu beach homes ideal.
It’s Not All About Size
Malibu beach houses sit on lots that average in size from 1,000 square feet in Eastern Malibu to 4,000 square feet at Big Rock, to 1.82 acres on Broad Beach. Many provide ample parking space for two cars.
The average house size runs from 2,300 to 4,000 square feet, which is ideal for single or small families. The more opulent Malibu beach homes are as big as 10,000 square feet.
Many of these beachfront homes are located on Malibu Road right below Bluffs Park, although other ideal locations also include Malibu Colony and La Costa. Carbon Beach, also known as Billionaire’s Beach, is a prime location for opulent beach houses.
Most Malibu beach houses are designed with earthy and neutral colors, and are generous with the use of wood to add a coastal, rustic feel. Homes with ultra modern designs and contemporary cuts are softened with the use of soft color palettes in the interior.
Expansive open decks, and swimming pools facing the sea are also a feature of many of these Malibu beachfront homes.
There are many notable architects and designers who have created outstanding Malibu beach houses: Michael S. Smith, Rom Wilson (who designed singer Cher’s Italian Renaissance style Malibu home on a cliff overlooking the Pacific), David Lawrence Gray, Patricia Baker, Richard Landry and Michael Graves are among some.
Malibu’s breathtaking coastline is always the celebrity of homes in this area, and is definitely a coveted aspect for homebuyers.
Floor-to-ceiling views through beautiful glass windows, panoramic views from the deck and the pool are always the focal point of the best Malibu beach houses.
Whether you’re in a home right on the beach near La Costa, or high on a cliff up the coast near Decker Canyon Beach, the views of the sea and mountains are breathtaking.
Beach Access and Privacy
Despite the popularity of views and being on or near the beach, owners also look for privacy and security in Malibu beach houses. Many of these homes are designed with windows and glass walls facing away from any roads or public view.
Malibu beach homes are also equipped with expansive decks that sometimes provide direct or private access to the beach.
