Did you know I was born in a trailer? Yep. Not only that, but my grandparents owned a trailer park where I spent many childhood summers. So when I heard that there was a “mobile home” on the market in Malibu for nearly $4 million whopping dollars, I had to see it. Let’s just say they’ve come along way since I was a kid…
My dad was the first in his family to graduate from college, and he was such an overachiever, he went ahead and got his doctorate, too. It was a big deal when we got our first house. But none of the houses we lived in were as nice as this place in the Paradise Cove Mobile Home Park!
The Malibu Real Estate Blog says: “This may be the biggest real estate story of the year in Malibu. A mobile home (unit 137) at Paradise Cove has been listed at $3,995,000 and guess what….I say it’s going to sell, and fast!” Adding: “This may be the nicest mobile home in the world.”
Since it’s considered a mobile home, you don’t own the land it’s sitting on. You’d have to lease it separately. There wouldn’t be property tax to pay, though, because you’d be considered a renter.
If the other rooms hadn’t already sold me on this place, the closet definitely would!
It can’t be truly mobile at this point, but I can’t imagine wanting to leave a spot like this anyway. Beautiful.
Excuse me while I stop and stare at this photo of the sand and water for a while. It’s been so cold and snowy here for so long that I would kill for a view like this right now.
Curbed explains that Paradise Cove isn’t your run-of-the-mill mobile home community: “Called ‘the hippest neighborhood in Malibu’ by Vanity Fair, it’s been home to celebrities, and some of its properties have sold for as much as $2 million.” Now this one is poised to set a new record.

P.S. This reminds me of a smaller, less expensive, but nicely decorated mobile home that was featured in Country Living magazine a few years ago:
