Traditional And Historic Homes

Paradise Found

This traditional, two-story residence now on the market for the first time in Rancho Palos Verdes is set in the private enclave of Island View. One of the most popular communities in the area, it is known not only for panoramic views of the ocean and Catalina Island, but its stellar residential amenities including a duo of tennis courts and walking trails as well. “It’s also centrally located atop the Peninsula, with easy access to Torrance and the freeway, which makes the houses in the community very desirable to buyers,” says listing agent Stephan Haw.

As for the interiors, expect standout quality there too, complete with a sunken living room boasting soaring ceilings and a fireplace; gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and high-end appliances; and an elegant master retreat featuring an office/exercise room, a duo of walk-in closets, bath with his-and-her vanities, and balcony. Adding to this home’s appeal? A large backyard with a barbecue station and pool.

Historic Jewel

Widely considered one of the South Bay’s most beautiful and recognizable properties, Hollywood Riviera developer Clifford Reid worked in tandem with architect Mark Daniels to craft this Mediterranean-style manse as his personal residence in 1928. Later resided in by noted philanthropist Dorothy Chandler, the home has since been restored by its current owner with a blend of old-world elegance and modern-day accoutrements.

Nearly 7,000 square feet of living space on two levels features a towering entry hall with imported Italian tile, hand-painted ceiling and grand, curving stairway; movie theater with surround sound; new gourmet kitchen; dual master suites; and a sunroom that opens to a beautiful half-acre lot. “The architecture is both historically significant and timeless,” says listing agent Brandon Assanti. “It would be nearly impossible to replicate this home today, and being offered fully furnished makes this property even more of an incredible and rare opportunity.”
