The Malaga Cove Neighborhood


The Malaga Cove neighborhood is located in Palos Verdes Estates. The best thing about this neighborhood is the the ocean view and many properties also have the “Queen’s Necklace” view which is a view of the coastline from Redondo Beach all the way around the coast to Malibu. It is spectacular and one of my favorite views (above).

The Malaga Cove area is .66 square miles and has approximately 1500 residents. Lower Malaga Cove (west of Palos Verdes Drive West) is within walking distance from the bluffs and trails down to the water and is home to Malaga Cove School (presently not operating as a school), Palos Verdes Beach & Athletic Club (310-375-8777), Neighborhood Church (photo below), St. Francis Episcopal. Malaga Cove Shopping Center, the Malaga Cove Library and Palos Verdes Estates City Offices are located in the heart of Malaga Cove on Palos Verdes Drive West. Upper Malaga Cove (above Palos Verdes Drive West) has many homes with even grander views and is the location of LaVenta Inn (events only), Palos Verdes Golf Club and PV Tennis Club.


Most homes are custom built (many with red tile roofs). There are currently 13 single family homes for sale ranging in price from $1,665,000 (1670 sq ft) to $5,500,000 (6600 sq ft). There are currently 5 townhomes for sale ranging in price from $739,500 (1250 sq ft) to $2,500,00 (3050 sq ft).
