Translated, the Chumash word Anacapa means “mirage,” which one might imagine they’ve stumbled across when ambling along the same-named street in the Lunada Bay district of Palos Verdes Estates.
For those seeking a timelessly designed home with a tranquil ambiance, the Spanish-Moroccan offering at 3008 Via Victoria is just the place. Dual pathways amid a sea of indigenous landscaping and a central, delightful fountain lead to the Spanish, almost Mission-style, home. In keeping with the classic tradition of beloved Palos Verdes design is the home’s big arched windows and terra cotta roof. Yet, hints of a Moroccan aesthetic—from intricately stained floor tiles to the star-patterned pendant light dangling above the front door—are quickly evident, making this home a true architectural beauty that seamlessly merges classic and contemporary styles to create a tasteful abode with an eternal air.
