About Pacific Palisades

While relatively small in land area, the Pacific Palisades is one of the most varied, distinctive, and sought after locations in the Los Angeles area.

"Where the mountains meet the sea," Pacific Palisades is home to roughly 27,000 residents, including many Hollywood celebrities.

"Everyday Italian" is filmed on El Medio for the Food Network. "Baywatch", "The Rockford Files", "Golden Girls" all involved filming in the Pacific Palisades. The movie "Carrie" was filmed at Palisades High School.

There are 9 distinctive areas, or neighborhoods, in the Pacific Palisades:

Marquez Knolls

Views, Views, Views! This beautiful area is best known for its phenomenal ocean, city and mountain views. Less than a 5 minute drive to the center of town, the Marquez Knolls neighborhood offers its residents a serene environment nestled in the hills north of Sunset Boulevard. The home styles range from modest single level ranch style architecture to large multi-level masterpieces built by well known architects.

Marquez Flats

Just north of Sunset Boulevard sits the Marquez area known for its close proximity to the well attended and highly respected Marquez Elementary School. Good size lots with one and two story homes with a good combination of new and older homes. This area is just minutes from the beaches along Pacific Coast Highway and is minutes from the Getty Center and Malibu.

The Huntington

Walking distance to the center of town, this area offers beautiful custom made homes on relatively larger lots with undergrounded power lines and wide streets with sidewalks throughout. The wide tree lined streets lead to properties with beautiful ocean views or homes with large backyards that are perfect for families with children. This area is highlighted by its closeness to the Palisades Recreational center, which offers a beautiful basketball gym, baseball field and playground for younger children.

Alphabet Streets

Located in the center of the Palisades Village, this charming neighborhood is ideal for families with children or residents who enjoy living walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Consisted mainly of flat streets, this neighborhood provides the quaint “small town” feel that has made the Palisades such a special area.

Palisades Highlands

Just a 10 minute drive from the Palisades Village, this newer neighborhood offers large two story homes that were built mostly in the late 90’s along with beautiful townhomes and condos. Surrounded by beautiful mountains facing the ocean, this neighborhood also offers its own swimming and recreation centers.

Village Bluffs/El Medio Bluffs

Enjoy the ocean breeze flowing from the Pacific through these charming flat streets. Located south of Sunset Boulevard, this neighborhood offers beautiful newer and original custom homes, all within walking distance to town, which make it such a special place to live. At its closest spot near the ocean, homes on the bluff provide awesome and romantic views of the Pacific Ocean and the city.
