As my tour bus snaked its way along the Amalfi Coast in Italy I listened to the other passengers ooh and aww over the amazing views, I thought to myself, reminds me of Palos Verdes. The Italian verison may be a little more dramatic with steeper hills and one-way roads with hairpin curves, but the high bluffs with blue water below share undeniable similarities.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as is the value of a view. This is one of the great puzzles of selling view homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. We have a plethora of views. There are varying degrees of views, there are up close and personal views and there are some homes with pastoral views (some buyers consider this a non-view when compared with a panoramic view). What's an agent to do when asked to place a value on a view?
The Views of Palos Verdes:The Queen's Necklace view is one of the most sought after on the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula. Many residents of Palos Verdes Estates are fortunate to enjoy this amazing sight from the comfort and convenience of their home. It is a combination of Pacific Ocean meeting the encircling lights of the Beach Cities and beyond all the way to Malibu. Toss in snow capped mountain in the background on a clear day and few would disagree this is a million dollar view.
The Blue Pacific and Catalina Island is another very popular view in Palos Verdes. A drive along Palos Verdes South will soon reveal why Lowe's chose to build one of the most spectacular resorts in Southern California overlooking this view. Terranea Resort adds a much needed hotel to the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the views are incredible and inspiring. Donald Trump's golf course is located nearby and enjoys similar breathtaking views.
City lights is an undeniably romantic view. The lights of the Los Angeles Basin and Los Angeles Harbor sparkle throughout the night and twinkle like millions of strands of holiday lights. Palos Verdes is affectionately referred to as "The Hill" by locals and nowhere is this more evident than when you are looking down at the glittering lights of the night.
Other views include coastline, whitewater, bluffs, hills, park, bridge and so much more. Some are from atop "The Hill" and others are so close you can almost dip your toes in the water or hear the surf. There is no doubt views add value to Palos Verdes Property. It also adds beauty, serenity and joy. Those intangibles may be one of the greatest gifts of owning property on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
