My Notes

In fabled Santa Monica Canyon, behind a wall of verdant plantings & antique gates, lies one of the most spectacular & rare properties to be offered in years, Villa Ruchello. The 3.3 acre compound (largest in Santa Monica), is bathed in dappled light, w/vast, lush grounds, a resort-style pool, patios, cabanas & magnificent gardens studded w/mature trees. Beautifully & securely sited on the expansive, mostly level property, the romantic 8 bdrm 1932 Medit. Residence, though updated, is enhanced by stunning original details. A fabulous gst house & a gate house, each with 2 bdrms, provide quarters for guests & staff. The main house is scaled for comfortable, but elegant living, with both formal & informal areas. The beautifully proportioned entry, liv rm, din rm and library are all adorned with inlaid floors, hand-painted & beamed ceilings & carved mantels. A huge fam rm overlooks the pool & grounds. There is a very large master suite w/2 baths & dressing rooms. A forever place of peace.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Pacific Palisades home values will rise 3.5% next year, compared to a 7% increase for Los Angeles as a whole. Among Pacific Palisades homes, this home is 1260.7% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 127.1% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Pacific Palisades, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 70% less than in Los Angeles, and 80% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help Pacific Palisades home values rise more quickly than other regions in Los Angeles.
