Rancho Palos Verdes:
My beautiful city, home since 1999 when we got our first house here. Was a good time to buy, btw…What can I tell you about RPV, the place I love the most. The largest one out of the other four cities on the Peninsula. Tiny one if you compare it to magnitude and diversity of greater Los Angeles. Well, speaking of diversity let me take it back. Rancho Palos Verdes is small but amazingly different place in many means. Weather, culture, demographics, property values, topography, style of life, you name it, melting pot of everything in miniature. Yet strong and solid environment to enjoy nice crowd, bring up a family, make lifelong friends and ever more appreciative investment’s values. The only thing might be missing here is shopping but it’s easily compensated by few excellent restaurants and places to hang out.
Palos Verdes Dr. West and South. Most beautiful costal drive you can imagine. Expansive views of Pacific, Catalina Island, Peninsula hills and organic mix of breathtaking oceanfront villas like newer luxurious developments at Oceanfront Estates and smaller but with great pride of ownership residences right next door. Once you continue driving from PV Dr. West to PV Dr. South you’ll see lovely Golden Cove Plaza at intersection of PV Dr. West and Hawthorne Blvd. We enjoy variety of fine restaurants with outdoor patios that open up to gorgeous views especially at sunset, Trader Joe’s, Peninsula Montessori School and ton of small family businesses. This plaza got remodeled just recently and is popular and looking better than ever. Almost across the street from it you’ll see Peninsula’s landmark and pride - PV Light House with some sentimental ghost story and adjacent Point Vicente Interpretive Center. Further east another amazing stop, trendy and chick Terranea Resort and Golf with most spectacular views, fine dining and miles of gorgeous ocean trails. Fancy destination for weddings, celebrations and corporate events.
Continuing east you’ll pass picturesque Abalone Cove Park with plenty of fun spots to hike and observe marine life at secluded beach and absolutely beautiful and romantic Weyfarers Chapel, or the Glass Church – one of the favorite destinations for intimate weddings, services and special events. It’s located right by entrance to “troubled” landslide area of Palos Verdes – Portuguese Bend. About 270 acres of land started to move in 1950th due to introduction of a lot of ground water beneath newly built at that time homes. Ouch…Still sliding. You can observe ongoing road construction and repairs all year round in this area. Nearby you will find entrance to Portuguese Bend gated private family neighborhood with abundance of land, wild life, seclusion and amazing views. True equestrian paradise. Once you are on the other side of slide area moving east you’ll see entrance to Portuguese Bend Beach Club, gated and guarded beach community with cute beach houses overlooking Pacific and with unlimited access to the private beach below.
This casual neighborhood is neighboring totally opposite ambiance of Mr. Trump’s National Golf Club and the Estates, luxurious place to show off your spending abilities. Premier golf and dining experiences are complimented by expansive ocean and Catalina views and breathtaking ocean trails.
Here we are at Palos Verdes Dr. East much quieter and more distant part of PV in relation to Peninsula Center. Distinguished by curvy roads and expansive views of Pacific and LA Harbor. It’s mostly residential area with nice Miraleste Plaza that offers couple of offices, family run businesses and shops. Nearby you’ll find Miraleste Library, third and the smallest on the Hill yet very cozy and friendly. It’s interesting that this mostly hilly side of PV has its own microclimate that might vary by 5-10degree in different areas.
