Mediterranean-Inspired Oceanside Home
This sophisticated and Mediterranean-inspired, oceanside vacation home is a getaway—and then some.
Nestled within The Palos Verdes Peninsiula the Mediterranean-style Terranea Resort—known for its natural beauty and 102-acre oceanfront setting in L.A.’s Rancho Palos Verdes—this private vacation home now on the market for $1.795 million comes with the option to occupy the fee-simple property up to 90 days a year and rent it out the remaining days per California Coastal Commission requirements.
“Terranea extends into the Pacific Ocean and provides the sense that the world recedes behind you,” says Director of Sales for Terranea Real Estate Marika Kalogerakis. “At certain times of the year, the sun often rises and sets over the ocean all in the same day. Under clear skies, four islands are visible off of the coast. Guests visiting for the first time are often astonished that this natural, scenic environment is not only within Los Angeles County and all that it offers, but that the Peninsula itself offers so many attractions.”
The Villas at Terranea—an exclusive enclave at the celebrated Terranea Resort, just 18 miles from LAX and 30 miles from Downtown L.A.—was designed by Schuerer Architects and completed in 2009. Expect Villa 11-301 to include 2,421 square feet of fully furnished and recently remodeled living space punctuated by hardwood and travertine tile flooring, and soaring beamed ceilings.
Among the highlights: a trio of bedrooms each with access to outdoor patios; an expansive, open-concept living/dining room with a formal dining table, fireplace and French doors; and a professional chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops and Viking appliances. A private, gated courtyard, meanwhile, boasts an outdoor sitting area warmed by a gas fireplace and an adjacent outdoor hot tub and a two-car garage, while a storage closet for the owner’s personal belongings can be locked when the owner is away.
Two sources of inspiration were key to the project: “Montauk’s wild and salt-weathered coastline and the casual elegance of Europe’s seaside towns, where centuries-old cultures exude rich color and patterns,” says McKinley.
Both owners and guests also are privy to an abundance of upscale resort amenities and services. Imagine nine distinct restaurants bars and lounges; four ocean-view pools; a 50,000-square-foot spa and fitness center; hiking trails; The Links, an award-winning 9-hole, Par-3 golf course; kids’ club; ecological enrichment programs; and 135,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor wedding and event space. In addition, Villa owners’ privileges include a 24-hour concierge, as well as preferred pricing on golf, dining, spa treatments, shopping and more.
“The most amazing thing about owning a Terranea Villa is how easy it is,” says Kalogerakis. “Terranea provides everything from property management, landscaping, payment of utilities, housekeeping and everything in between in a world-class, award-winning resort setting. Owners can simply arrive and enjoy their vacation home for up to 90 days per year worry-free. Terranea properties also qualify for a 1031-exchange.”
