African Dictator’s Home In Malibu To be The Next Mega Sale?

It’s been a tough month for an African dictator’s son that once attended Pepperdine. Malibu’s second most wanted must give up $70m in assets including his Malibu mansion above the pier.

I have to admit that everytime I see a picture of this guy (his real name is Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue), I cant hep but to the think of the movie Lord Of War where Nicolas Cage must do businesses with a dictator in Sierra Leone. I’m not sure what it is about dictators and their kids, but they all seem to shop at the same mens store where you can only purchase one thing…..weird polyester button down shirts. This guy rocks one with pictures of himself and his name all over it just to remind everyone who he is!

So the big news in Malibu this week is that the D.O.J. finally put a case together and went after the playboy son of president Teodoro Obiang Nguema of Equitorial Guinea. The settlement includes his Malibu home, a car collection at the Petersen Museum, and a ton of Michael Jackson memorabilia. Remember the guy in Lord of War who had to have the gun of Rambo? This guy had to have the glove of Michael Jackson and paid almost $500,000 for the sparkly one seen on the ‘Bad tour’

The palatial home sits above Surfrider beach and is one of the largest homes in all of Malibu. The Meditteranean style home sits on several acres, with panoramic views, and from my best guess, has about 20,000 sq.ft. under roof. Even the “Gate House” is bigger than most homes in Malibu!

The news reports I’m reading all seem to say that the house is worth about $30m. I think it’s worth much more and if that’s what the government credited him in the settlement of funds, then they got a great deal. I’d say it’s worth closer to $50m and maybe even more.

Point Dume Home Closes After 40 Plus Showings in 2 Weeks!

After a few weeks of frenzied showings and multiple offers, the Point Dume probate that came on the market for $2,495,000 has closed for $3,250,000.

The real estate market for Point Dume homes continues to show strength with the most recent offering closing well about the asking price. The small ranch house came on the market about a month ago as a probate and had many challenges that likely scared a bunch of buyers away. It wouldn’t have mattered much anyways as the sharks started honing in on a getting their offers in. Rookie buyers didn’t have a chance because at the end of the day 6 people made offers. All were either professional investors or very experienced locals who weren’t scared of a disclosure list as long at the local LCP rule book.

What’s interesting is that the listing in the MLS only showed 2 photos that, let’s say, were not so sexy. The word of mouth that spread about a great deal on Point Dume spread like a Santa Ana driven wildfire and soon the listing agents were getting 3-6 requests a day to see the property.

The home, located at 28841 Boniface, is an oddly configured 2 bedroom with a bootleg conversion in the garage. There is a pool (60’s style small one) and the lot had plenty of room in back for a large project. The home has deeded beach rights to Little Dume with a beach key. The best use of the main house right now is to use it as a rental then later downsize it to conform to a guest house after a large home is complete. Something local architect Doug Burdge has done many times on Point Dume!

From the MLS “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.”

I personally had one person make an offer out of the 6. I was able to let him know about the deal a few days before it hit the MLS. Of the six deals I’ve closed on Point Dume, almost half of them happened because I knew about them before they hit the MLS. Call me to discuss any needs you have on Point Dume and if you would like to be on my priority list of buyers for the Point. Once I get wind of a property, I go thru my list and start hitting the phones! With my recent sale of $8m on Birdview, I’ve now sold close to $35m worth of real estate on Point Dume!

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! 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 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

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

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.
