House of the Day: Malibu Short Sale With a Steep Price Drop

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...


Think the high-end of the market hasn't been felled by the economic downturn? Guess again. Here's a lovely four-bedroom contemporary home in Malibu, Calif., that is now being offered as a short sale with a recent price drop of $1 million. Ouch.

The 5,000-square-foot home is now listed at $2.85 million, subject to the lender's short sale approval. So what does this really mean? It means the lender could say no to that price or it could mean someone is going to pick up a bargain. The home has been listed at $4.2 million.

The home has whitewater ocean views, top-of-the-line finishes that include Viking and Miele appliances, granite counter tops, Brazilian walnut floors and high wood-beamed ceilings. There is a fossil stone wine cellar and an 1,800-square-foot balcony made of Chinese slate stone. The property is an easy walk to the beach and membership in a private tennis club is included.
