Serra Retreat is a very private community located in lower Malibu Canyon adjacent to the Malibu Creek. Within walking distance to the Malibu Country Mart and Surfrider beach, Serra Retreat is a hotspot for high level celebrities and entrepreneurs whom want privacy, yet centralness to all of the happening spots in Malibu and a short drive to the city of Los Angeles. Some Serra Retreat residents include Larry Ellison, James Cameron and Olivia Newton John.
Entrance to this star-studded community is protected by two gate guarded areas, one off of PCH and the other on Cross Creek Road. With more than approximately 96 homes, the Serra Canyon Property Association was created to protect and maintain the canyon roads within the community.
Serra Retreat was originally planned for Malibu's Ringe Family, but it was sold in 1942 to the Franciscans. To this day, the Franciscans Sierra Retreat is used as a catholic retreat and conference center welcoming individuals and groups for peace and serenity.
Real estate in Serra Retreat is very diverse in size and price. Properties in Serra Retreat range from the high $1 million's all the way up to $40 million estates. Many of the homes within Serra Retreat don't have ocean views, except for properties located on the upper ridge of Sweetwater Mesa Rd.
