Welcome to Pacific Palisades

 
Though Pacific Palisades is now populated by LA’s affluent, its residential history is much more colorful. In the 1910s it was home to “Inceville,” one of the first major film studios founded by Western director Thomas Ince. In 1922 a Methodist reverend bought the land and founded a religious-intellectual commune.
 

Around the Block

 
One of LA’s lushest neighborhoods.
 
Pacific Palisades is a polished, coastal, quiet residential area with large private homes, spectacular ocean views, and ample amounts of park space and hiking trails. Its quaint “downtown” area, known as The Village, is home to restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques. Frequent neighborhood-sponsored events foster a true feeling of community among residents.
 

The Neighbors

 
Upscale families, outdoorsy professionals, and wealthy industry folks.
 
This neighborhood’s small-town feel and wide-open spaces appeal to a diverse group that includes families, outdoors enthusiasts, and industrious professionals.
 

What To Expect

 
Beautiful scenery, a charming downtown, and a strong sense of community.
 
Pacific Palisades is one of LA’s best-kept secrets. It offers the ocean views, beach access, and impressive outdoor opportunities of neighboring Santa Monica and Malibu, but attracts fewer tourists. A weekly farmer’s market and hyperlocal dining and retail add to its small-town feel. The neighborhood is also home to the stunning Getty Villa, the second outpost of the J. Paul Getty Museum, which features Roman-inspired architecture and gardens.
 

The Lifestyle

 
Brimming with sunshine, endorphins, and a deep appreciation for life’s finer things.
 
Pacific Palisades’ fitness-forward residents make great use of the ample park space and beautiful beaches, and spend weekends patronizing high-end neighborhood restaurants and shops.
 

Unexpected Appeal

 
Access to many of LA’s finest trails.
 
Invest in a good pair of running shoes and take in the ocean views from one of the neighborhood’s many footpaths, like those at Will Rogers State Historic Park.
 

The Market

 
Populated by spacious single-family homes on private lots.
 
Residents pay top dollar to inhabit this seaside hamlet, enjoying the breathtaking views as well as the sense of safety and quiet Pacific Palisades affords.
 

You’ll Fall in Love With

 
Direct access to the lush greenery of Palisades Park.
 
This coastal neighborhood offers plentiful outdoor space, but Palisades Park is the largest—117 acres—and most accessible communal area. Within walking distance of the Village and set atop bluffs that provide perfect sunset views, it boasts baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and a hockey rink in addition to its many trails, lawns, and playgrounds.
