Ridgeview Country Estates in Pacific Palisades holds the distinction of being the final private, gated single-family home development approved by the California Coastal Commission in the late 1980s. Lots range from 10,000 to 35,000 square feet, with 48 homes currently located in the gated enclave. Due to the high elevation on the Palisades bluff, many homes in Ridgeview Estates enjoy spectacular coastal views of Santa Monica Bay. The community is bordered by Temescal Canyon Park with guarded entrances located on Bienvenida Ave. and Shadow Mountain Road.
Homeowner’s Association dues for Ridgeview Country Estates are approximately $650 a month. The dues support 24-hour manned guarded gates and other community amenities. Many Ridgeview Country Estate homes feature extensive landscaping on flat, hillside-adjacent lots of 1 acre or more. All homes are custom-designed in the development, and the majority have a Mediterranean feel, although some have been inspired by French country estates and Tuscan villas.
A number of properties in Ridgeview Country Estates feature guest houses as well as primary estate homes. Amenities range from wine cellars and butler pantries to formal dining rooms, chef’s kitchens, and infinity pools. You may find an estate that includes a portico and terraced garden with a matchless view of the Pacific Coast. Many homes have indoor living areas which blend seamlessly into the exterior patio, pool, and entertainment spaces. Outdoor enthusiasts will also delight in hiking trailheads which originate in the neighborhood leading into nearby state parklands.
Opulence is the hallmark of Ridgeview Estates homes. Many homes have been remodeled or received extensive upgrades since the initial building phase in the late 1980s. Although the neighborhood can have a remote feeling due to its proximity to natural open space and parklands, it is easily accessible to coastal and inland urban parts of L.A. from Sunset Blvd. With some of the most expansive views of the entire coastline, comprised entirely of exclusive estate properties, Ridgeview Estates offers an opportunity for an elite lifestyle in one of Los Angeles‘ most sought-after locations in Pacific Palisades.
