What really defines the term Palos Verdes Estates Mansions? Is it the size of the home? Or how about the size of the land? Or both?
I’ve been selling real estate here on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and around the Beach Cities for over 35 years and I’ve never, ever, not once ever, seen a home like I’m going to tell you about here.
When I first saw this home, the first thing I thought of was the Hearst Castle. And it turns out my thought wasn’t too far off because I subsequently learned that some elements from the Hearst Castle are found in this home. Want to see my video on this? Click here for youtube video
The second thought racing through my mind is that there is no other property like this within 50 miles of Palos Verdes. Is this a Palos Verdes Estates Mansion or is it really more like a Godfather Compound
Where else can you find the tranquility and peace that Palos Verdes offers on over 3 acres of land (146,440sqft feet of land) that envelopes a home of over 8,000sqft with panoramic coastline views of the Santa Monica Bay and the Los Angeles basin?
Look, I can go on and on and it would just be ridiculous to try to put to words what this real estate offers. But before I finish, let me share with you, as much as it would be a pity to “cut up” this estate, realize that it is comprised of 3 different parcels; according to property tax records, a 74,086sqft parcel, a 50,749sqft parcel and a 21,605sqft parcel.
Oh, one more thing, how about entering the estate through a medieval gate. Yeah … that’s right.

Why do we love living here and being owners of Palos Verdes Homes?
