We don’t know what it is about today that has caused us to take an interest in housing that only God and, well, God could afford. Maybe it’s the arctic cold outside. Maybe its the rats crawling in the walls of our hovel. Anyway, LA Voice pointed us to this modest crash pad in Malibu that’s now available for purchase, and we thought, “Well, the MLS description doesn’t contain any glaring misspellings or grammatical snafus, so it must be classy.” Indeed, this little “charmer” is on the beach and contains a small village, a shipyard, and an all-gold bust of the owner. SoCal architect Ed Niles designed the place. We don’t know too much about him, but his house, in the wise words of one Nomi Malone, “doesn’t suck.” And, no, you’ll never be able to afford it. Retail price: $23.5 million. That’s a mere $110,000 per month!
