I thought you would find it interesting to hear about the highest sales of the year….First, the highest single-family home sale ever in California was at 27740 PCH in Malibu. The property was purchased for $41,000,000 in 2013, it was quietly marketed, but not listed when it sold for $177,000,000. The property is located in Paradise Cove, in Central Malibu, and includes several properties, the main residence is 11,810 sq ft on a 4.36 acre lot.

It’s interesting to note how the highest-priced sale for the past three years has continued to rise...In 2019, the highest sale was 875 Nimes road, for $150,000,00….The highest priced sale in 2020 was 1801 Angelo Drive, owned by David Geffen and sold to Jeff Bezos for $165,000,000, and for this year, 27740 PCH sold for $177,000,000. Maybe we will have a $200,000,000 sale in 2022

The second top sale this year was 27560 PCH in Malibu. It was listed for $125,000,000 and sold for $87,000,000. The home is a modest 3,827 sq ft on a 2.97 acre lot. he also owns the adjoining property at 27600 PCH, which he paid $100,000,000 for in 2019.
