On the Market: The World's Fanciest Mobile Home
What comes to mind for you when you hear the words "mobile home"? Whatever that is, dismiss it. Recently listed for nearly $4 million, one Malibu mobile home is challenging all preconceptions about the trailer-home lifestyle. Considered the most desirable residence in Paradise Cove, a mobile home park abutting the beautiful Pacific Coast, the beach house, which can accommodate a family of four, features luxurious details like crown moulding, Carrara marble, and wood floors, as well as large two-car garage, landscaped grounds, and the best feature: an expansive deck perched above the ocean. While one might think $4 million is a lot to spend on a mobile home, one should consider that just a few hundred yards away, Malibu homes with similar views are selling for between $20 million and $50 million.
