  • 3.954acres

Iconic Bonsall Canyon bucolic setting with a seasonal creek, sycamores, oaks, and orchards. This parcel of approximately 3.95 acres has been the home of family-owned and operated Zuma Orchids since the 1970s. Set at the end of a long driveway, with a separate service entrance, this rare rural site is located within walking distance of world-famous Zuma Beach. 

The grounds have been rigorously nurtured, managed, and restored by former Apricot Lane Farms manager, Trevor Jahangard (Biggest Little Farm), without herbicides, fungicides, or tilling, to ensure bio-density and ecosystem health. Two huge greenhouses support orchid cultivation and the productive landscape features orchards of avocados and macadamia nuts, plus bay, strawberry madrone, walnut, persimmon, fig, apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, mandarin oranges, oranges, grapefruit, limes, guava, sapota, pomegranates, cherimoya, mulberry, carob, banana, and more. 

Zuma Canyon Creek runs through the easterly portion of the property, with steeper hills and views from the westerly areas. Zoned Rural Residential (RR), the property has large flat areas suitable for development. The City of Malibu has approved a fire rebuild application for three commercial greenhouses and a shed/office, with design concepts and proposals in process for a bridge across Zuma Canyon Creek and a grand single-family residence for rural ease and lavish entertaining. Majestic, protected oaks and sycamores offer shade throughout this unique and magnificent Malibu property.
