Pacific Palisades

Sitting at the mouth of the SantaYnez Canyon and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Pacific Palisades is picturesque and made for the movies. That’s exactly what film director Thomas Ince felt and in 1911 he founded Inceville as a film factory. Only eleven years later, in 1922, the Southern Californian Methodist Episcopal Church and it’s Reverend Charles H. Scott bought the land as a religious retreat renamed Pacific Palisades. While many of the streets retain the names of Methodist missionaries, the tents and cabins have been replaced by luxury homes.   This seaside community is nestled between Topanga, Brentwood, and Santa Monica.  Aside from Sunset Boulevard, the main thoroughfare through the community, Pacific Palisades luxury homes are tucked behind small winding streets that line the canyons and overlook the Pacific Ocean.  There is also an exclusive guard gated private community which sits on the Western edge of Pacific Palisades with homes ranging from $2,000,000 to $35,000,000.
