Palos Verdes real estate area 170 is known as West Palos Verdes Estates, and is located in the city of Rancho Palos Verdes. Multiple Listing Service Area 170 includes the area at the end of Hawthorne Boulevard at the intersection of Palos Verdes Drive West and goes to the border of Palos Verdes Estates. This area also includes the upscale new development known as “Oceanfront Estates” which goes downwards from the drive towards the water and is a planned master community of grand estates. These homes range from 4,000 to 8,000 square feet and have large lots ranging from 1/2 to 3/4 acres. When the land was originally developed, it included approx 66 acres of open space for the residents to enjoy.
One of the great things about this area are the walking trails along the ocean bluff. Here you can see the ocean for miles, and even get a view of Catalina. Another area of large luxury custom homes was developed at Marguerite Drive. At one time the Berry family owned much of the land around Berry Hill Road. Marguerite Drive was named for Marguerite Berry who lived in a home along the Drive. Another street was named Laurel Drive for her daughter.
On the other side of Palos Verdes Drive West is an older development of homes extending along the East side of the Drive. This areas is called Point Vicente because of the elementary school located above these homes with that same name (click here to read prior article on this neighborhood).
