There are many unique places in the world to call home but if you love long, sandy beaches, high end dining and a home that you can truly call your own, look into Malibu. The town is situated on a stretch of beach that is right off the Pacific Coast Highway so downtown Los Angeles is a few minutes away.
Malibu has long been with home of many celebrities giving it the feel of a very tight knit enclave. Since 1926, small neighborhoods began to develop to create the community that exists today. The original neighborhood, the Malibu Colony, was one of the first home development areas that remains today. It drew celebrities looking for vacation homes away from the everyday bustle of Los Angeles to the sweet breezes from the ocean. Today, many neighborhoods feature multi-million dollar houses on smaller lots to accommodate the number of people who understand that dream.
As a relatively small town of 12,645 residents, this beachside community still remains resilient through the potential of storms including wildfires and mudslides. Fortunately, these threats are few and far between. For the most part, resident enjoy the easy beach lifestyle and luxury living that the area has to offer.
The Getty Villa offers many cultural opportunities for residents and visitors to the area. An affiliate of the J. Paul Getty Museum, visitors are able to view and interact with J. Paul Getty’s personal artifacts, collected artworks and sculptures.
