Malibu | $1.675 Million
A three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom beachside condominium in a 1975 complex
This condominium complex is about a mile from the entrance to Zuma Beach, a county beach known for its surfing and wide stretches of sand. Less developed than the nearby Malibu and Santa Monica beaches, Zuma is popular with locals. Several public schools, including Point Dume Elementary and Malibu High School, are a five-minute drive, as is Kanan-Dume Road, which connects this part of Malibu to the western San Fernando Valley.
Size: 1,584 square feet
Price per square foot: $1,057
Indoors: The unit’s front door opens into a large living area with sliding-glass doors out to a balcony that offers partial views of the Pacific Ocean. This space has hardwood floors, white wainscoting and a tiled fireplace set into a corner. Opposite the fireplace is an open staircase that leads to the second floor.
To the right of the living room, facing the back of the unit, is a wide doorway to the kitchen, which also has hardwood floors. The sellers, who bought the home in 2015, added new cream-colored wood cabinets. Off the kitchen is an enclosed patio; once additional outdoor space, the room is now used for dining.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms. The primary suite, at the top of the stairs, has two large windows with an ocean view, a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a combination tub and shower. One of the two guest rooms is currently used as a home office. Both rooms have treetop views; they share a bathroom with an orange-tiled shower and a white vanity.
Outdoor space: From the living room, double-paned sliding-glass doors open to a balcony that overlooks other buildings in the complex. The balcony is wide enough to hold several chairs and a small table. Building amenities include a saltwater swimming pool, tennis facilities and a clubhouse that can be rented for events. A garage attached to this unit holds two cars.
Taxes: $21,276 (estimated), plus a $1,079 monthly homeowner association fee
