Pacific Palisades

“Where the Mountains Meet the Sea”... This is a phrase sometimes used to describe Pacific Palisades.  "The Palisades", as locals like to refer to the area, is located on the West Side of Los Angeles.

The Episcopal Church purchased the land back in 1922, with the goal of creating a religious community. Almost a hundred years later, the area has been transformed from religious believers living in tents to urban professionals ensconced in multi-million dollar luxury estates.

Nestled between Malibu, Santa Monica, Santa Monica Bay, and the Santa Monica Mountains, Pacific Palisades is a beautiful neighborhood with a population under 25,000.  It has a reputation for being a friendly, relaxed community in keeping with Southern California's beach lifestyle.

Pacific Palisades Enclaves & Lifestyle

There are many different enclaves within the Pacific Palisades area.  While luxury homes abound, there are also condos, apartments, and many small businesses.

Rustic Canyon is situated on the former polo fields between The Riviera and Huntington Park.

Near the Riviera Country Club, streets are named after different locations from both the French and Italian Riviera.

The Alphabet Streets are located north of Sunset and were given names for Methodist Bishops from the late 19th century.

~ Marques Knolls is known for its ocean views.

~ Palisades Highlands is near the border of Topanga Canyon.  Some consider it a separate community.

~ The Bluffs is located further down Sunset Boulevard and is located near Palisades Charter High School.

~ Huntington Palisades is the typical neighborhood located right next to the Palisades “Village.” The Village is the central business district where you can find numerous charming shops, including weekly events like the farmer’s market and antique shows.

Several private schools are located within Pacific Palisades.  The public high school is rated very highly.

Pacific Palisades runs down Sunset Boulevard and is home to many different parks and recreational areas. Temescal Canyon features hiking trails, children’s play area, picnic spots, and a native garden.  Will Rogers State Park offers 200 acres including polo fields.

Because of its location near the 405 freeway, commutes from the Palisades can sometimes be challenging. Sunset Boulevard can become congested at peak hours. Easy access to the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and to the 10 Freeway provide some relief.

Pacific Palisades has a well-earned reputation for being safe and beautiful.  Its high-quality, relaxed lifestyle is ideal for families and those seeking a respite from the hectic hustle and bustle of LA.
