ABOUT THE COMMUNITY OF PACIFIC PALISADES
The ultimate hideaway for extraordinary estates and high-end residences, the Pacific Palisades is one of Los Angeles’ highly coveted neighborhoods and best-kept secrets. With views of the ocean, beach access, and close proximity to Santa Monica, Malibu, Brentwood and Topanga without the traffic, Pacific Palisades is the perfect place to call home. The charming tight-knit community and secluded location surrounded by lush greenery and coastal views, the thriving community attracts established professionals and families.
Potential home buyers can enjoy chic traditional estates with ocean vistas, dramatic architectural residences, custom-built compounds and welcoming homes near Palisades Village, or popular neighborhoods such as the Riviera, Brentwood Park, and the Huntington.
Pacific Palisades is also home to the striking Getty Villa as well as numerous breathtaking parks offering access to some of Los Angeles’ finest hiking trails, including Will Rogers State Park, Topanga Canyon State Park, Palisades Park, and more.
Having undoubtedly emerged as a market to be reckoned with, Pacific Palisades’ average sales price enjoyed a 21% increase in the past three years. The average price per square foot of a home surpassed previous years at $993, and it’s now been ten consecutive quarters of that figure surpassing the $900 mark.
In 2018, Rick Caruso’s Palisades Village opened and quickly established itself as “L.A.’s star-studded instant sensation,” according to Food & Wine. Nestled in the Palisades, the bespoke village is comprised of 40+ boutiques, entertainment, and dining experiences.
Caruso took its community-driven approach to a new level with Palisades Village. Between hosting some of the most coveted names in local and international food and fashion, to pristine park grounds, to the iconic Bay Theatre, Palisades Village has become the community’s vibrant epicenter.
In 1911, famous film director, Thomas Ince, founded “Inceville,” a Western film factory which at one point, nearly employed 600 people. 10 years later, Rev. Charles H. Scot and the Southern California Methodist Episcopal Church purchased the land and not too long after, the Pacific Palisades was established as an elaborate religious-intellectual community. To this day, some streets are named after Methodist missionaries.
Many German and Austrian intellectuals and artists sought refuge from Nazi Germany and flocked to the community in the 1930s and 40s. Thomas Mann, Lion Feuchtwanger, Emil Ludwig, and Vicki Baum were among them.
