1955 House One of the Last Originals on Malibu's Broad Beach

New, 12 comments

On LAObserved's Here in the Malibu blog this weekend, Veronique de Turenne wrote about her cousin Suzanne's 1955 house on Broad Beach, one of the most expensive and star-studded neighborhoods in Malibu (as well as one of the most erosion-prone). Turenne says her cousin moved in in 1971 and lived in the house for 40 years, during which "She never changed a thing. (Seriously, check out the kitchen.)" Suzanne died in May and her house was listed for sale in June asking $8.5 million. The listing for the 1,736 square foot house puts the teardown option on the table and says "This is truly a unique opportunity to buy a beach house for land value, on a great section of Broadbeach Road!" After two chops, asking price today is $7.495 million. The house is probably one of very few originals left on Broad Beach, but we did find a 1948 house down the beach for sale, although it looks like it's had some work done.
