Ed Kaminsky’s 59 Paseo Del La Luz In Grand Fashion

Located above Golden Cove in the 24-hour gated community of Oceanfront Estates in Rancho Palos Verdes, this sprawling, modernized Mediterranean is the definition of a prestigious address.

Bathing in Luminous Ocean Views, 59 Paseo Del La Luz is an Immersive, Fully Renovated Rancho Palos Verdes Estate Is a Showcase of Contemporized Mediterranean Style With Exquisite Finishes and an Excess of Space

In completely refashioning 59 Paseo Del La Luz, Rancho Palos Verdes, eliminating the heavier elements of its style for clean lines and open, easy-flow space, the owners made the 8,560-square-foot home their masterpiece, one with five bedrooms, seven baths, twin two-car garages, and an exquisite landscape, among many other charms.

“It was a sort of a passion project for the owners,” says Ed Kaminsky of the Kaminsky Real Estate Group at Strand Hill | Christie’s International, who is listing the property, set on a 0.6-acre lot, for 6.95 million. “They put their heart and soul into it.”

Initially constructed in 2000, the utterly transformed estate looks freshly built and features a revised floor plan designed to appeal to today’s desired lifestyle with a mix of private retreats and congregation spaces. One enters the home via a magnificent entryway that opens to a capacious, well-lit upper level that is suffused in splendid views of the Pacific and wraps a living room, dining room, chef’s island kitchen with walk-in pantry, library, and family room in its warmly elegant embrace.

“You come in and are enveloped by the beauty of the ocean—that’s the first experience,” Ed Kaminsky says of the space, whose bountiful light highlights a bevy of features and finishes that include supremely classy staircases, several fireplaces, cathedral ceilings, chair railings, and crown molding. Commanding the entire left side of this level, the opulent owner’s retreat is an oasis, with a sitting room, fireplace, ocean-view terrace, and showcase marble bathroom with a generously dimensioned soaking tub and walk-in shower with two entrances. 

One arrives at the downstairs level via a dramatically-split staircase. There is delight in three distinct areas: one for guests, with a bedroom and bath (and an exit door to the outdoor kitchen and back staircase, negating one’s need to have to enter the home); another for home entertaining, complete with a stunning alder wood bar, big-screen TV and space for family and friends to come together; and finally a dedicated children’s wing, with a living space, desk area for two, game space and three bedrooms. Also on the lower level is a gym room with direct access to the outdoor sports court and a wine cellar, all secured by a Crestron Home System. 

The diversions of the downstairs area flow easily and naturally into the rapturous backyard. While the landscape is immaculately groomed and ordered from front to back, the latter flourishes in full view of the Pacific and under an endless stretch of sky. Featuring a completely rebuilt pool and a Jacuzzi, as well as a fire pit and the aforementioned sports court, the back yard also hosts an outdoor kitchen with every convenience, including a dual fuel barbecue that is a favorite feature of Ed Kaminsky.

“For someone who likes to cook,” he says, “it’s really wonderful. I’ve actually never seen that before, a barbecue that is combination of charcoal and gas.” Also of note, he adds, is the wood-burning pizza oven and refrigeration in the outdoor kitchen, along with one of the home’s many ice makers.  

That this already spectacular property is part of a crème de la crème residential community only adds to its appeal. Unparallel in its comforts, and offering sought-after access to outstanding schools and world-class golf, the home is a rarity.

“It’s about square footage. It’s about outdoor space. It’s about the community and security,” says Kaminsky of the combined attributes that make this estate special, singular and elusive. The buyer for this property, he notes, is one who will understand it as nothing less than a prize opportunity. “Someone who values grandeur but needs space and privacy, and who really appreciates the beauty of the Pacific Ocean.” Even better? Appreciating it in a home that is beauty itself.

Lopud 1483: Out of the Ruins

Overlooking the hypnotic depths of the Adriatic, the remnants of an ancient time speak to an ancient place. This is Lopud 1483, a 15th-century Franciscan monastery complex, with its church, Our Lady of the Cave, so named for the fact that the friary was built over a sea cave that was later transformed into an underground passage connecting it with the open ocean.

868 9th Street: Who Else Wants a New Construction in the Hill Section?

It was the mellow atmosphere of the Hill Section in Manhattan Beach that convinced a custom home developer Saeid Shokravi to go ahead with this voluminous new five-bedroom home and inspired its plantation-influenced modern look. The result is a residence ideally suited for life as it’s lived today, with sophistication and user-friendliness locked in neatly together.
