23920 De Ville Way, Malibu | Not in the MLS | 2B/3B |$1,350,000
This absolutely turn-key front row unit in the Vista Pacifica complex near Trancas Canyon. There are spectacular ocean views from both levels. The entire complex was recently painted and there is a community pool. It is light and bright and has a gourmet kitchen. This is a great complex to live in for those who want to be more on the west end of Malibu, which tends to be “quieter” then the east end. Although this unit is located farther out, it is minutes away from the newly renovated Trancas Market. This is a great get-away spot for those looking for a peaceful serene environment. - Listed with Brant Didden
