One of the most affluent neighborhoods in Southern California with breathtaking cliffside views, Palos Verdes Estates is the oldest residential community on the Peninsula. Situated on the western side of the Peninsula, Palos Verdes Estates banks the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean with a population of approximately 13,500 residents. With luscious rolling green hills on top overlooking the vast ocean, each home creates a story of its own. The city has dedicated 849 acres of permanent parkland. Thus, it enjoys the envious reputation as a garden suburb with beautiful pastoral settings. The Palos Verdes Homes Association is responsible for interpreting and enforcing the standards that apply to sites located within Palos Verdes Estates and Miraleste.
