From a sprawling Malibu pad to a surprisingly affordable condo in Long Beach

It’s hot out there and getting hotter. And with that in mind, let’s take a look at a few properties where refuge from the heat lies only a few steps away in the cool waters of the Pacific. Here are five different oceanfront homes on the market around Southern California.

It’s hard to get more oceanfront than this Malibu property, where the high tide practically reaches the living room. The boxy, pink colored home has 6,100 square feet of living space, along with five bedrooms and four and a quarter baths. Features include an entryway graced with a koi pond and plenty of windows for sea gazing. Asking price is a very reasonable $19.995 million.

Moving south, here’s a two-story unit in a recently renovated building in Venice. The three-bedroom, three-bath residence has just about 2,000 square feet of living space, with an open kitchen and living room that face the water. It opens onto a private balcony just off the beach. Asking price is $3.75 million, with HOA dues of $750 per month.

You’ll have to cross the street to get to the beach from this Hermosa Beach residence, but the ocean views from the rooftop deck certainly aren’t anything to sneeze at. Featuring three bedrooms and two and three quarters bathrooms spread across 2,788 square feet, the sleek, contemporary-style home was designed by architect Daryl Olesinski and photographed by Julius Shulman, per the listing. Asking price is $7 million.

Long Beach may not have the mystique of Malibu or Marina del Rey, but it’s certainly a lot cheaper. This one-bedroom, one-bath condo has 814 square feet of living area and a balcony that looks directly onto the beach. There’s even a swimming pool and a rooftop deck in the complex. Asking price is $539,000, with HOA dues of $321 per month.

This Newport Beach residence looks like a good place for a Bond villain. Sip some expensive red wine, watch the ocean, and contemplate diabolical things. The 3,968-square-foot residence has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and a reflection pool just steps from the sand. Asking price is $14.1 million.
