Oceanfront Estates Luxury Homes Report


Last Updated November 2017

Oceanfront Estates was developed by Capital Pacific Holdings at the turn of the century, from the very late 1990s to the early 2000s.  The development company was from Orange County–synonymous with large homes on tiny lots, but in keeping with the locals’ love of the large lot, the developer broke the mold and built large houses on large lots at Oceanfront Estates.

The name of the development is not a misnomer.  The ocean views are a sight to behold.  The water is up close and personal.  You can smell it; you can hear it, and often feel the ocean mist on your face. Yet, you are far enough above it to be protected from rogue waves and winter storm surges.  The cliffs and bluffs of Palos Verdes provide a beautiful buffer from the rise and fall of the ever-present tides.


To some residents’ dismay, the homes began life in Palos Verdes as look-alike production homes, but during the ensuing decade, many are emerging with styles and designs quite unlike their next door neighbor.  The landscaping is maturing giving better balance and beauty to an enclave of estate-size homes.  The development no longer appears out-of-place in Palos Verdes.  It has earned its place along the coveted coastal acreage of the Palos Verdes Peninsula
