The Palos Verdes Peninsula includes four separate cities known for beautiful homes, spectacular city or ocean views, distinguished schools, and green rolling hills with hiking and horse trails.
Palos Verdes Estates
The oldest of the four cities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Palos Verdes Estates was incorporated on December 20, 1939. The city was artistically planned by Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., designer of New York City’s Central Park. With 28% of the land dedicated as open space, the city has continued to value and preserve their natural assets resulting in a unique pristine coastline. In stark contrast from South Bay’s beach cities are the lush green hills of the Palos Verdes Estates. Custom homes of various sizes, some with breathtaking panoramic ocean views, are sprinkled across the hillsides on sizable lots.
Rancho Palos Verdes
Home to Trump National Golf Club of Los Angeles and the Terranea Resort, RPV provides beautiful ocean views and a preserved natural landscape. Biking and hiking trails abound.
Known as “behind the gates,” this area consists of sprawling estate properties where many residents corral horses and enjoy immense privacy. Most homes are single level ranch style homes on spacious multi-acres lots with private roads.
Rolling Hills Estates
Incorporated in 1957, this community is proud of its rural atmosphere and equestrian lifestyle. The city provides peaceful pastoral open spaces with white-fenced properties and 25 miles of equestrian trails.
