The Adamson House
The Adamson House is just steps north of Malibu, along the Coast Highway. It's a grand example of Spanish Revival architecture, open to the public and maintained by the state of California.
All of the tiles were handmade of Malibu clay.
The house was built by the family who had a 30,000+ acre Mexican land grant that dated back the the 1800s. They built the Malibu pier and back in the day, this was the only house in Malibu.
Walking the grounds, with the waves breaking only steps away, you forget four lanes of Coast Highway and countless streaming cars are just beyond the wall.
