Malibu, if anything, is a unique place to live. From Hollywood titans to surfers, to families wanting a nature-filled community, this coastal city offers unique Malibu homes for every type of dweller.
Here, we list 5 Malibu homes that are anything but typical, and have features that both stun and delight.
Grand Malibu Estate Living
It’s not every day you see a Malibu home that’s so incredibly massive and beautiful at the same time. Large Malibu homes can start to feel like compounds–but this property is anything but, with its 6.5 acres of charming, winding garden paths, a guest house, ornate ballroom, indoor pool, an art studio, wine cellar, tennis court and a luxuriously appointed main house.
The so-named La Villa Contenta is a truly breathtaking sight to behold. The 10 bedroom and 14 bathroom home is not currently on the market. Nevertheless, it is such a magnificent home, we had to include it our list of truly unique Malibu homes.
This Mediterranean home was built in 2002, and with more than 16,000 square feet, it’s a prized property if you’re looking for serious luxury living.
Located at 26880 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, CA.

A Staircase of Malibu Dreams
Now who wouldn’t be happy walking up and down this staircase in their home each day? It’s literal perfection– from the rift-sawn Oak floors, to the large panes of glass showcasing the beauty of Malibu on all sides.
This could have just been a normal hallway, and instead architect Christopher R. Sorensen turned it into something extraordinary by adding large windows that offer a stunning view of the outdoors.
This newly built Malibu home is located at the end of a private cul-de-sac, and it’s master suite comes complete with an office, and gym/massage room. There’s also a swimming pool, and a private mountainside for hikes.

If you’re going to live on the beach, you must have windows—lots of big windows. This bluff-top Malibu home is located on legendary Broad Beach Road, and has direct beach access, as well as large glass windows and doors that open to amazing views.
You will never tire of the views from inside or outside where you can swim in the infinity pool, or soak in the spa, both which overlook the ocean below.
Luxury modern details abound in this beach white designed home. The spacious interior’s glass walls open to an extensive deck, where you can dine al fresco.
Retire to the master suite with sitting area, a grand fireplace, and a floor-to-ceiling marble tiled bath with dual showers.
