Malibu ColonyÂ real estate provides you with the unique opportunity to own a piece of Malibu history. Known in the 1920s as âMalibu Beach Motion Picture Colonyâ, Malibu Colony was Malibu's first celebrity community. This luxury home-filled community, has been called home to successful business and entertainment executives, as well as film, TV and music personalities, including Jeff Bridges, Tom Hanks, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Kline, Bette Midler, Bill Murray, Rob Reiner and Tori Spelling, to name a few.
From 1892-1938, Malibu was owned exclusively by Frederick and May Rindge, founders of Union Oil and Southern California Edison. In 1929, the newly widowed May Rindge was faced with financial difficulties, forcing her to lease some of her land to a few wealthy celebrities. The opportunity to build a beach home in such an exclusive and private area appealed to many in the film industry, including Anna Q. Nielson, Gloria Swanson, Gary Cooper, and Barbara Stanwyck. Nearly 10 years later, still under financial strain, May Rindge was left no other choice than to begin selling the leased properties to those that had built upon them. It was at this time that Malibu Colony was born.
Malibu Colony is now one of the most famous communities in Malibu. Located east of Malibu Bluffs Park and west of Malibu Lagoon State Beach, this gated community provides residents with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean while giving them the privacy and exclusiveness they desire. Malibu Colony offers various styles of real estate from classic bungalows to spacious mansions. Beach homes within Malibu Colony are frequently outfitted with outdoor kitchens, private cabanas and seaside teahouses.
