White Water Coastal View from Palos Verdes Home

I could try to describe this view for you, but the iPhone says it so much better. I’ll take this view from any window any time!  (Check out other homes for sale in the same neighborhood at West Palos Verdes - Homes and Articles.)

Josh and I were out previewing new listings in Palos Verdes, as we do every Tuesday morning, and I could not let this view slip past my eyes without capturing a small snippet of its beauty.

Yes, it’s true, we’re fortunate to work in such a beautiful area; many days my job does not feel like work at all.

Oceanfront Estates in Palos Verdes - Luxury Homes on the Coast

Infinity pool in Oceanfront Estates in Palos Vedes.

Oceanfront Estates was developed by Capital Pacific Holdings at the turn of the century, from the very late 1990s to the early 2000s. The development company was from Orange County–synonymous with large homes on tiny lots, but in keeping with the locals love of the large lot, the developer broke the mold and built large homes on large lots at Oceanfront Estates.

The name of the development is not a misnomer. The ocean views are a sight to behold. The water is up close and personal. You can smell it, you can hear it and often feel the ocean mist on your face. Yet, you are far enough above it to be protected from rogue waves and winter storm surges. The cliffs and bluffs of Palos Verdes provide a wonderful buffer from the rise and fall of the ever-present tides.

True, the homes began life in Palos Verdes as look-alike production homes, but during the ensuing decade many are emerging with styles and designs quite unlike their next door neighbor. The landscaping is maturing giving better balance and beauty to an enclave of estate-size homes. The development no longer appears out-of-place in Palos Verdes. It has earned its place along the coveted coastal acreage of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
