Malibu Lakeside is a small residential community located in the Santa Monica Mountains, adjacent to Malibu Creek State Park. Los Angeles real estate developer H.L. Averil sold the first lots in 1924, two years after the foundation of nearby private community Malibou Lake Mountain Club. Many early residents were middle class Angelenos, using their cabins as a weekend escape from the city. Every homeowner held a stake in the Lakeside Mutual Water Company, which in turn helped fund the community center, which boasted a large clubhouse, swimming pool, softball and tennis courts, and a playground.
