Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.
Villa Narcissa, also known as the Vanderlip Estate, was originally part of the 16,000-acre site purchased over a century ago, and still stands as the crown jewel of the Peninsula. Private, gated and teeming with history, Villa Narcissa has much of its surroundings protected by the land conservancy where nothing can be built to block the views of this natural environment and Pacific Ocean. The 11.5-acre property encompasses a historic 7,700 square foot Tuscan residence — one of the original Tuscans ever to be built in the South Bay — and 10 guest houses with tennis court and pool. A restoration process could be the most heart-warming endeavor you ever do, because this property was made for family, for events and for entertaining. Beyond the main house, a lush green archway takes to a swimming pool and spectacular grounds, tailor-made for grand entertaining. The list of guests and events throughout the past century is legendary. Between the acreage, its prized location and legacy, this estate presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
