As I pondered what luxury real estate topic to tackle today, I decided it would be fun to review the most expensive listings for sale on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Since I needed to narrow the field, I selected $9,000,000 as the low end starting price range. That search yielded eight Palos Verdes properties, six in Palos Verdes Estates and two in Rolling Hills.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as is the value of a view. Placing a value on views is one of the great puzzles of selling view homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. We have a plethora of picture perfect views. There are varying degrees of views, there are up close and personal views, and there are some homes with pastoral views (some buyers consider this a non-view when compared with a panoramic view). What's an agent to do when asked to place a value on a view? The Views of Palos Verdes: The Queen's Necklace view is one of the most sought after on the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula. Many residents of Palos Verdes Estates are fortunate to enjoy this amazing sight from the comfort and convenience of their home. It is a combination of Pacific Ocean meeting the encircling lights of the Beach Cities and beyond all [...]

Luxury Home or Luxury Lifestyle?

By | April 2nd, 2017|Charlemagne Int'l Properties, Los Angeles luxury listing agent, Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes Coastal Homes, Palos Verdes Ocean Front Homes|

  The definition of luxury varies from person to person, and it morphs as we enter and exit the stages of life. A property's location is frequently the crowning glory of luxury. Quality often follows location. Size falls lower on the list, as big isn't necessarily better. View falls under the location category because if you want waterfront views, the location will dictate where you must buy to achieve the desired view. When people speak of wanting a luxury home, they are often driven by the lifestyle they covet. Perhaps they want the best schools for their children, or maybe they want a hassle-free commute, or possibly they want to experience the luxury of an ocean view on a daily basis. Some people want to escape the city; others want to return. Luxury is personal. As soon as I know what luxury means to a prospective buyer, I can show [...]

"What do luxury home buyers expect when purchasing a home in Palos Verdes?"  This is the question a buyer/builder asked this week as he pondered whether to move forward with the purchase of a lot on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. After a few probing questions about location, size, and price we concluded the following considerations are almost de rigueur when considering designing and building a home for the Palos Verdes lifestyle: 1.  Build around the view--don't block it with solid walls or shrink it with tiny windows.  Many prospective buyers move to Palos Verdes to enjoy our plethora of panoramic views, and it's surprising to see how many new homes do not take full advantage of the stunning natural beauty outside the four walls of the residence. 2.  Go for understated elegance rather than showy ostentatiousness.  The residents of Palos Verdes enjoy the luxurious amenities an elegant home affords, but this is not Palm Beach [...]
