If yesterday's Gehry on Broad Beach wasn't to your liking, maybe you'll prefer this 1928 traditional on a double lot in Malibu Colony. One of only seven houses in the gated community with a pool, the 3,300-square-foot house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a guest house, grassy courtyard, and 60 feet of beach frontage. With its slightly fading exterior, white-painted floors in the main living space, and stripey bathroom wall, you could be charmed into thinking this is just a sweet beach cottage. And then the asking price slaps you back to reality: it's on for $18.9 million.
