Surveying the potential of 31030 Broad Beach Road, I knew the approved interior had to go. It was totally at odds with the house’s clever exterior design with accented planes and angles by multi-paned vertical windows.
Of particular note is the rear sitting room off the dining room with built-in banquette. Opening to one side, the room flows seamlessly into the backyard with a jacuzzi. Straight ahead is the backyard of the house – the Pacific Ocean.
“A lot of people walk into that space and say they feel like they’re on Cape Cod or in the Hamptons,” Caleb says. “It has a sophisticated, easygoing beachy type.”
After the patio, the front door of the house opens into a wide foyer that embraces the main staircase. Immediately ahead, two steps descend to the living room and ocean views, perfectly framed by 9 foot vertical windows flanking a double door. The upper floor and the main sitting room have similar windows and doors opening onto a long deck.
The first floor hallway leads to a second living room/media room with glass doors leading out onto an oasis garden patio that also serves as an en-suite bedroom.
A 500-square-foot guest suite is located above the two-car garage. The space can also be used as an office or art studio. The suite has a separate entrance. It includes a seating area with beamed ceilings with skylights, as well as a kitchenette, bathroom and wardrobe.

Malibu shot of Rogers
Outside of Broadbeach Road real estate, the median home sales price in Malibu during the first quarter of 2023 was approximately $6.1 million, according to a market analysis provided by Rogers. This is $1,650 million less, which is a decrease of approximately 21% from the first quarter 2022 report of $7.7 million.
Rogers attributes the decline to “locked-in” sellers as well as inventory shortages and tighter buying margins.
The number of days the property remains on the market has also decreased― From 66 days in April 2022 to 49 days in April, a decrease of nearly 26%.
says Rogers, a former Bravo TV star Million Dollar List: Los Angeles. “This can spur movement. With less inventory and almost no demand, homes will usually sell faster if they are priced right.”
Spring and summer should see more activity, he adds, since “Malibu tends to be a seasonal market.”
The report also shows that there were 67 expired, canceled and withdrawn properties in the first quarter of 2023, compared to 50 properties during the first quarter of 2022.
“Homeowners may want to move but don’t jump selling—they’re likely to be priced low compared to today’s much higher rates,” says Rogers, a Malibu native. “If they get their price, they sell. But if they don’t, they stay.”
