Comparing and contrasting Malibu beach houses under 4 million on Pacific Coast Highway
19236 Pacific Coast Highway just hit the market and has received tremendous exposure because it was previously the Malibu beach house retreat to iconic American actress Judy Garland.
Garland purchased the newly built home in 1947 and it has since benefitted from a complete rebuilt from the studs up in 2013.
Garland died in 1969 at the age of 47 and is best known for her roles in “The Wizard of Oz” as Dorothy (1939), “Meet Me in St. Louis” (1944) and “The Harvey Girls” (1946). She was the first woman to win an Album of the Year Grammy for her album “Judy at Carnegie Hall” and was thereafter awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997. There is simply no one like Judy Garland.
As for the home she left behind, there is nothing that quite compares to it in terms of quality and finishes. Let’s take a look at some other Malibu beach houses that are similar in price also located on Pacific Coast Highway.
20460 PCH | 3 BD | 2.5 BA | 1,750 SQFT | $3,075,000
This beautiful contemporary beachfront home is updated and hip. It features a large oceanside deck that has a grand sitting area underneath the house and outdoor shower to rinse off after a dip in the waves. While it is less expensive, the narrow lot sits on a rocky beach and shares a wall with its neighbor.
20762 PCH | 2 BD | 1 BA | $3,195,000
20762 Pacific Coast Hwy is unique in that it intends to be sold purely as land value and has a lot of potential for its next owner. It offers 45+ feet of beach frontage and is the perfect place to enjoy or rent while awaiting permits. Its blue exterior certainly catches the eye.. and you may be catching the eye of a neighbor due to how this property sits below its neighbors causing it to feel enclosed by the homes next door.
19306 PCH | 3 BD | 3 BA | $3,200,000
With the option to come furnished and as a lease, 19306 Pacific Coast Highway is a great, clean beach home. It has a coveted 2-car garage plus street parking which is a treasure to find on PCH. The bathrooms and kitchen appliances are dated and the outdoor space of this property is limited, therefore not allowing the ideal Malibu indoor-outdoor living.
19232 PCH | 4 BD | 3 BA | $3,495,000
