(non)mobile homes

in sunday's LA Times real estate section, an interesting article on the price of mobile homes by the beach - malibu and newport beach. I wrote last week that malibu=hamptons in ny. but in this article, it resembles some of manhattan's tougher coop boards - banks loans that require 20% deposits, mobile park approvals, views determine cost. and these homes are not for the pabst-swilling, wife-beating, nascar-watching types we usually associate with mobile parks. describing one home:

Her home has two bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, an office, a great room, a slate foyer, a fireplace with a slate hearth, distressed pine floors throughout, bead-board wainscoting, a wraparound deck, ocean views and an English country garden that was tended by a woman who, Goodwin says, had "10 green thumbs."
