One of the most unique Miraleste Homes located in the city of Rancho Palos Verdes is the home designed by world famous Walter Davis.

la venta innBreathtaking and inspiring, the architectural genius of Walter Davis flows through this home that he designed for his son.  Walter and Pierpont Davis were early pioneers of the courtyard complex, with projects of Mediterranean design dating from about 1915.  He was also the architect for the La Venta Inn, the first structure to be completed on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in 1924.  Ocean, harbor and city lights from most rooms, winding paths through lush landscaping, mystery and intrigue aat nearly every step.  If you continue reading, you can find links to other Old Spanish Homes and Spanish Revival Architecture real estate.

This is a one in a kind property that astounds.  This is an incredible once in a lifetime opportunity to own, not only a home, but a work of art.  For example, the ceiling in the Master Suite took approximately 8 years to create.  It was inspired by the Cappella Palatina, the Royal Chapel of the Norman Kings in Palermo, Sicily dating back to the 11th Century!  Think about it, anyone can own a home and hang a piece of art inside; it’s something else all together to live in piece of art!  Call or email if you would like to experience the marketing system resulting in the successful sale of this home

Miraleste homes provide classic interpretation of the spirit envisioned by the “Father of Palos Verdes”, Frank Vanderlip.  The old world charm envisioned as the “American Riviera” lives on with Miraleste homes.  Temperate climate, easy access to freeways, yet one of the most calming environments to live, Miraleste homes provide this along with tremendous schools ranked among the best in the United States.  While we encourage you to shop and compare, we know that you will find none of the Miraleste homes, let alone any of the Palos Verdes homes that compare to this living art.
