Point Dume Probate Sale on Boniface at $2,495,000

Point Dume Probate Sale on Boniface at $2,495,000    

August 20 2014 · by

Deal alert! A Point Dume ranch house at 28841 Boniface has come on the Malibu real estate market today  for $2,495,000!

Point Dume Probate Sale on Boniface at $2,495,000

Deal alert! A Point Dume ranch house at 28841 Boniface has come on the Malibu real estate market today  for $2,495,000!

The approx. 1400 sq. ft. original Point Dume home was built in 1957 and sits on a large but narrow lot of little over one acre. The home does carry deeded beach rights to the private beach at Little Dume and is a short distance from Point Dume Marine Science.

The challenge with this home for sale can soon be found out by reading the disclosures in the MLS description……. “This is a Probate Sale. Great opportunity to purchase on Pt. Dume with key to the beach. All offers to be submitted on C.A.R. Probate Purchase Agreement (PPA-11), Probate Advisory (2 pages), with Seller’s “AS-IS” Addendum Disclosure. All offers subject to Trust Company and Beneficiary approval as applicable. Seller’s choice of services. Buyer to submit lender pre-qual letter and proof of funds. Property is to be properly exposed to the open market and the Administrator will not respond to any offers before September 10, 2014. Seller will NOT provide termite report and clearance, Home Protection Policy, repairs or credit for repairs. The City of Malibu has recorded a violation against the property for an un-permitted habitable structure (Guest House) and Buyer will be responsible for the removal of the un-permitted structure after the close of Escrow. Buyer is responsible for any and all costs associated with obtaining a City of Malibu Onsite Waste Water Operating Permit.”

Because it’s a probate with recorded violations, a buyer will most likely need to be all cash since conventional lenders steer clear of these situations.

I’m betting that this one goes above asking. Call me if you’d like more information about this property. I can tell you that the home was shown most of the day today and the phone is not going to stop ringing until a judge says “sold”!

UPDATE! I went to the property yesterday and it’s better that  thought. The lot is huge with plenty of room to do a major project. The man in house is livable and has nice high ceilings. The problem that I see is that the main house is not situated on the parcel properly. In my opinion, the best use of this parcel is to build a large house in back, then down size the current house to conform to a guest house.

Malibu Firework Shows Fourth Of July 2014

Malibu Firework Shows Fourth Of July 2014

If you are wondering where to watch fourth of July fireworks in Malibu this year, here is our insider’s guide to get you to the best spot!

Every year local residents hire private barges to come and provide the entertainment for their fourth of July parties. There can be anywhere from 2 – 5 barges that dot the coastline from Carbon Beach to the Encinal Bluffs. Theses barges are loaded with thousand of pounds of fireworks and the displays, lasting up to 45 minutes, are on par with anything you’d see in a major city.

So far permits have been issued for these three fireworks displays on Friday, July 4, beginning at 9:00 PM in the vicinity of:

* Malibu Colony Road
* 27900 block of PCH
* Broach Beach

For the Malibu Colony firework show a great spot to watch the show would be on Surfrider Beach and the Malibu pier. If you want to eat dinner while watching the show, a good bet would be to grab a reservation a The Malibu Farm. Here you can eat a great meal at the end of the pier with a great view of  two firework shows. Nobu and Nikita would be great options but reservations will be unavailable and there will likely be a waiting line to get in to the bar area.

The 27900 block of PCH is by Paradise Cove. Parking can be a real issue in this area so it’s best to get to the beach early and plan on staying all day. There is parking at Paradise Cove Beach Cafe but I’m guessing it will fill up by 10am….even if it’s foggy. You can park on PCH but it’s a bit more dangerous, especially if you have kids and need to walk a long distance.

Up at Broad Beach the parking and viewing can be a bit more challenging. With the beach pretty much gone at Broad Beach, the only place to safely watch the fireworks show will be from PCH above Broad Beach. The west end of Zuma would be a great spot to watch this show too. I would suggest using the pay entrance at Zuma and driving to the parking lot. Just a short walk away in the new Vintage Market if you need food or drinks. Use the crosswalk at Trancas and PCH.

Point Dume Deal Alert Under $3m!

A new Point Dume listing just showed up in the MLS this morning and it’s priced to sell. It’s a project, but it’s still a great buy seeing that the house next door, with an almost identical size lot and really small house, just closed for over $2,600,000.

Here is the skinny as I’m running out the door!

The home was built in 1955…it’s an original ranch house. The current owner started some work and has done a majority of the heavy lifting to get it to it’s next stage. The interior is gutted, new HVAC on site, ceilings lifted showing cool beams, and rooms rearranged to be more modern and less 50′s. The is a current septic operating permit which get’s you even closer to an easy finish. Outside, you’ll find a flat yard, a pool, and a gently sloped hill that would be a great spot for additional structures. Current home has about 1800 sq.ft. and the lot is just under an acre. Yes, it has a beach key. This would be an ideal project from some who has some experience with construction or anyone just looking to get on Point Dume for under $3m.

From the MLS “Pt. Dume location with beach keys to Little Dume Beach. Large flat useable lot with beautiful private rear yard area overlooking a pristine canyon. Home is in the middle of construction and has stopped. Has a current Septic Operating Permit. Potential upside deal for investors or make this your dream home. Short distance to beaches, market, schools. Shown by appt only and DO NOT GO DIRECT without listing agents. Property has security cameras.”

Price $2,725,000
Address 6655 Dume Drive

Iconic Malibu Landmark, “The Pier House”, Hits The Market

Malibu has a few iconic homes where an address or street name is not needed to find it. Just a name that kind of sums it up. There may be no better example of this than “The Pier House” located above Surfrider Beach and the Malibu Pier.

The home sits directly above the Malibu Inn on the bluff adjacent to Serra Retreat. Situated on over 2 acres with 550 feet of frontage above PCH, the home has some of the best views in central Malibu. The long rectangular shape is the perfect architectural envelope for the large glass windows that give floor to ceiling views of the Pacific….the same view you’d get if you hired a helicopter to hover 200 feet above PCH. The master suite claims a large portion of the home and has both his and her bathrooms. Heading outside, you’ll find slide away glass doors that open up to a lap pool with spa and decks, and even more jaw dropping views.

So hey, all you Bird Street buyers fighting over fixers for $10m, you should seriously come buy this place before it gets snapped up.  The air is cleaner, you can check the surf by raising your head off your pillow, and the Paps can’t get in to this neighborhood…it’s guard gated!

Location: 3556 Sweetwater Mesa
Price: $12,500,000
Info: 4 bed 6 bath on 2.3 acres. 30 second drive to PCH. Very private.

From the MLS “BOLD ARCHITECTURAL STATEMENT IN MALIBU’S EXCLUSIVE SERRA RETREAT. THE PIER HOUSE IS A STUNNING EXAMPLE OF CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE WITH SPECTACULAR AND AWE-INSPIRING OCEAN VIEWS. THE INTERIOR IS A SHARP AND SOPHISTICATED BLEND OF TEXTURES AND COLORS. THE LARGE MASTER SUITE HAS HIS AND HERS BATHS, A SEATING AREA WITH FIREPLACE AND A WINDOW SEAT THAT MUST BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED. THE OPEN LIVING AREA HAS SLIDING WALLS OF GLASS THAT OPEN TO EXPANSIVE DECKS AND DRAMATIC SWIMMING POOL. THE HOME ALSO FEATURES A GAME ROOM, HOME THEATER AND A SLEEK DESIGNER KITCHEN. SITED ON NEARLY 2.5 ACRES, THE EXTERIOR HAS A GARDEN AREA FOR OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING, A FIRE-PIT ADJACENT TO THE POOL AND SOUND SYSTEM FOR BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE HOME. TRULY A WORLD CLASS ESTATE.”

Lobo Canyon Estate On 20 Acres Offered at $5,900,000

My most recent listing is truly a unique property! Check out the HD movie that was made for the home with the use of drones, sliders, and an original score. Make sure to click the gear symbol and watch it in 720 HD.

Last week, along with my colleague John Snyder, I listed a property on a large estate in Lobo Canyon. If you are not familiar with this area, it is the unique equestrian and vineyard area located in the Kanan corridor just south of the Canyon Market and Troutdale. Lobo Canyon features numerous large estates, horse facilities and people interested in establishing vineyards. The area really feels a lot like Napa and Sonoma and even the homes are on par with some of the luxury estates you’d find there.

The home that we listed is the largest in the area with over 11,000 sq.ft. on 20-plus acres. Situated atop a prime flat pad, the home takes in spectacular views of the mountains, unique rock formations and the sycamore trees that line the stream that runs the entire length of the canyon. Below the home is a very large, flat parcel, which could easily accommodate parking for 100 cars, an equestrian facility, and/or barns and workshops. The gently sloping hills that make up the rest of the land would be ideal for vineyards with enough room for thousands of vines.

Inside the home, you’ll find a massive great room with 3-story high windows that frame the picturesque mountain views. The master suite with over 1700 sq.ft. has its own private patio, a sitting and viewing area designed with curved glass, and a spa-like master bath with a fireplace, jetted tub, and fine Carrara marble. There are 2 secondary master suites, each with their own living rooms, and 4 additional bedrooms.

The home would be ideal for someone seeking privacy and solitude, a place to run a business, or for someone who likes to entertain on a large scale.

Check out the terrific website at www.LoboCanyon.com

Call for more information. Mike Gardner 310-699-8428

From the MLS ” Largest home in Lobo Canyon, with spectacular views of the Santa
Monica Mountains.  Privately gated 20 acre estate, with flat acre

Amazing Paradise Cove Mobile Home For Sale
A triple wide coach in Paradise Cove redefines what a mobile home can be.

New to Malibu’s real estate market this week is a Paradise Cove mobile home for sale with an asking price of $2,275,000. After the newer triple wide was towed into the park just a few years ago, the owner immediately stated to rip out what the manufactured home factory put in. Out went the formica and anything else that could be described as “faux” or laminated. In came Carrara marble, custom tile, hand troweled plaster and real wood floors.

After a year and a half of work, what you see below is what I can say is likely one of the world’s finest mobile homes and joins ranks with some of the most expensive ever to be offered for sale. With the recent rumors of a $4m sale taking place along the bluffs of Paradise Cove, and a closed sale of $2.5m, it’s easy to see why this asking price may quickly find a buyer. Call 310-699-8428 for more details.

Price: $2,275,000
Space rent: ~$1800 (check with park management)
Size ~2,016 sq.ft. with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths (possible 4th bedroom)
Things to know: No property tax, water and sewer included, you don’t own the land (you lease it), private beach 100 yards away, and it’s located on one of the best streets in Paradise Cove.

From the MLS “SOUGHT-AFTER BLUFF LOCATION IN PARADISE COVE. 1ST TIME ON THE MARKET. A STUNNING NEW 3BD, 3BTH, HOME LOCATED ON A QUIET, WOODED STREET. OVER 2000 SQFT OF CUSTOMIZED PERFECTION. SMALL OCEAN VIEW FROM FRONT DECK. SMOOTH STUCCO EXTERIOR, CAPE-COD STYLE INTERIORS, LIGHT WALNUT HARDWOOD FLOORS, TILED BATHROOMS, WITH MIX OF GRANITE AND MARBLE. FLOWING, OPEN FLOOR PLAN, HUGE LIVING ROOM, DINNING AREA, SEPARATE UTILITY ROOM AND A VERY LARGE GOURMET KITCHEN WITH TOP-OF-THE LINE APPLIANCES. BIG MASTER BEDROOM WITH WALK-IN CLOSET AND UNIQUE MASTER BATH WITH INTEGRATED SHOWER AND TUB GLASS ENCLOSURE. DOORS FROM THE BEDROOMS LEAD TO A SIZABLE, PRIVATE BACK YARD, FULLY FENCED, LANDSCAPED WITH GRASSY LAWN. BEACH LIVING AT ITS BEST! MODERATE SPACE RENT, 3 CAR PARKING.”

$200k Per Month In The Hills Of Malibu.

Villa Cascata joins the list of Malibu most expensive summer rental properties.

Think $50k a month sounds high? There are now a total of three homes in Malibu that are asking $200k per month for summer rental. Two of the homes are on the beach and often get tenants. What is unique about Villa Cascata is that it is not on the beach….it’s up in the hills of Malibu. For $200k per month you get a palatial spread with a list of previous guests that reads like the invite list to a Vanity Fair party. The home is the ultimate compound for privacy, parties, and anyone that needs to feel like a king or queen for a period of time. I’ve spent many days on the property and can say that there is nothing like it in all of Malibu in terms of size, luxury, and views of the ocean….it has it all.

Check out the MLS description with who has rented the home.

Point Dume Home Sells For $2.6m

A Point Dume home has finally been recorded with a sales price at $2.6m. The home, located on Dume Drive, came on the Malibu real estate market a few months back and instantly attracted the attention of dozens of buyers and it had multiple offers almost right away. On caravan, the place was overrun with agents trying to figure out which clients should get the first phone call to come and check it out.

What you should note about this sale is this…The house itself was only about 1400 sq.ft. but the lot was a good size with about 3/4 of an acre of flat and gently sloped land. The house could easily be added on too or could be downsized in to a guest house if a large house were to be built on the back portions of the lot.

So the new price point of a small house or ranch house on Point Dume is now at $2.6m …last year it was about $2m and we’re are talking about homes on Dume Drive. Small homes on the other prime streets, like Wildlife and Greyfox, are now even higher.

Here is what sold. From the MLS….

DESIGNER CHIC MALIBU HOME WITH UNLIMITED POTENTIAL TO CREATE YOUR OWN POINT DUME PARADISE. OPEN LIVING AT ITS BEST. BARN SLIDER DOORS THAT DEFINE AND DIVIDE SPACES, VERY HIGH CEILINGS, SOUTHERN EXPOSURE FOR PASSIVE HEATING AND COOLING, CONCRETE FLOORS, SALVAGED ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS IN KITCHEN AND BATHROOM. SMALL SEPARATE GUEST QUARTERS/OFFICE. BRING YOUR SURFBOARD BECAUSE THIS AMAZING POINT DUME HOME HAS RIVIERA BEACH RIGHTS! DROUGHT TOLERANT LANDSCAPING. THIS WONDERFUL PROPERTY GIVES YOU THE MALIBU EXPERIENCE.

Exclusive First Look! 1927 Topanga Craftsman Not Yet In MLS

I got an early look at a great Topanga home that should be in the MLS in a few days. I also got to take some photos and you are getting a first look at it before anyone!

The home was built in the 1927 and has one of the greatest living rooms I have ever been in. There are tall beamed rafters stenciled with white petal motifs, hand forged hardware on the doors and beams, and a fireplace made from local stream rocks. The upper railings of the balcony and stairs are made of oak limbs and there is a ton of cement faux bois to match outside in the gardens. The living room even has hand carved gargoyle faces under each window!  This place is begging for some taxidermy, Roseville Pottery, and some Tiffany lamps with amber bulbs.  As a bonus, there are also two potential rentals on the property. One freestanding barn/loft and a studio apartment underneath the main house. I’m guessing about $2500 per month in income if you need it.

This place has more emotional pull than then a chick flick on the Hallmark channel!

List Price will be $1,199,000

Here is the official description- Historic Craftsman on the market for the first time in 40 years! The wood paneled, soaring great room feels like a National Park Lodge, in this sensitively updated 1927 Craftsman home. Windows wrap the home in world class views. Original features of stone fireplace, hand carved beams, natural branch railings, wood floors & a gracious front porch are enhanced with an updated & expanded kitchen & master suite. A studio apartment is tucked below. A guest house sits on over an acre lot, with seasonal waterfall.  A prized property for those who want the quintessential Topanga home.
