The ocean view from the bluffs is pretty vast and depending on the exact location, you can usually see the coastline for miles. It will look like a panoramic photograph & could appear to be just a few feet away. ... more

Murphy Way or Murphy Motorway as it ascends to the Edison maintenance roadways up the ridge is know also as DeButts Terrace. It was named after a long time resident and postman who lived there, owned much of the property and was an Original Malibu pioneer.

The residential road winds up the ridge as you are surrounded by absolutely gorgeous Mansions and Villas that provide luxury living at it's finest. To the East is Escondido Canyon with a waterfall that is a very beautiful and popular easy hike to see.

To the West is Ramirez Canyon that was a big part of the original Malibu Rancho cattle herding areas that let out at Smugglers Cove. In the 1950s the owner of Smugglers Cove started a weekend trailer park for celebrities to come and stay, fish, boat, eat, drink, hang out because of the incredible reefs and kelp beds that lie just off the coast and the beautiful and secluded beaches and coves. With a new name of PARADISE COVE this magical place became one of the most popular places to go in Malibu. Current values in Paradise range from $500,000 for a small trailer to $4,000,000 where Stevie Nicks just bought an awesome large 3 bedroom home and is making into a music studio.

Eventually it was completely developed into a spectacular neighborhood that produced some of the world's best surfers. It is the home of the world's best spear fisherman Jaime Padgett. It is not uncommon for him to pull 50lb Seabass out in front of the pier area that is just outside of the State and federally protected natural habitat area.

The entire area West (or North as most people think of it) up to beyond Point Dume and beyond is all protected area so the natural environment is preserved for future generations. There is no fishing allowed in these protected areas unless you connect with the commercial fishing boats that occasion the area.

The reefs are full of Halibut, Tuna, Seabass and many reef fish of all varieties and the snorkeling is funtastic.

To get back to the original question about elevation of Murphy Way one needs to know the exact address as it ascends from Pacific Coast Highway (30 feet) all the way up the mountain to above the cloud levels near (2,000ft). The views are wide and wonderful at every property and every residence.

If you have never seen the view from this street, I highly recommend that you take a trip and see. If you want to view the coast line from inside a home that is for sale, come up when there is an open house or make an appointment with me.

To go inside any high end Malibu home you will need to be prepared to show your ability to buy with financial records and proof of a down payment or full cash, as the owners of these private and secluded homes do not allow just any Jane or Joe Smo to walk around their home.

I will be pleased to escort you to These awesome Villas or other competing areas like Point Dume, Broad Beach Road, Malibu Colony Road, Malibu Cove Colony, Marisol, Carbon Beach, Billionaire Beach, La Costa Beach, Cavalleri Road, Malibu Park, Trancas Canyon, Ramirez Canyon, Escondido Canyon or any of the incredible Malibu Eastside or Westside neighborhoods in The Malibu that I LOVE.

Hello again, Ricardo,

I never heard from you the last time I answered your question a month ago.

The property has 10 planted acres of vineyards. I can also let you know what types of wines are being produced on this property & how many VINES of each there are. I am very familiar with this property & can help you to negotiate a good price.

Shoot me an email directly, or give me a call, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for Replies or other answers posted after mine. Not because I'm a meanie, it's just that I get an email every time another agent answers your question.

Hi Ricardo,

The house and the 37 acres of land is being included in the sale. The wine label and specific crops that this owner created are not included, but of course we can speak to the owner and see if he would be willing to negotiate that as part of the deal.

Feel free to contact me directly at (310) 717-1321 or if you are interested in purchasing this property, or any other similar properties in Malibu. I would be happy to answer any additional questions you might have.

Hello Dan,

I see your question is specific to Market Conditions in this area of Malibu. I'm happy to give you the information you're looking for. Would you like an opinion on values within a 2-3mi radius of this location over the past 6mos? This property is New construction, I can gather info for you on other Newly built homes nearby for comparison.

The holiday season is a great time to make a move & negotiate with sellers who Need to sell & while interest rates are still so favorable.

Shoot me an email directly or give me a call if you'd like to discuss this further, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for Replies or Answers posted after mine.

Maria, The Answer depends if the seller is willing to finance the difference and for how long? If not than you need a Mortgage Lender, there are not many Banks who are willing to finance land now days.

Should you need additional help feel free to reach out to me directly.

Are you familiar with the phrase "You get what you pay for?" Looking to save a few dollars in commission could end up actually loosing you money in what you are able to sell your property for. Look for an agent who will work hard to get your property sold; one who will establish a personalized marketing plan for your property and who will market the property to all the other agents in the area. If you concentrate on finding the right agent they will be able to get you the maximum for your property in today's market. ... more
