    Your Own Private Beach....

    Tonys Blog

    A dear riend was visiting us rom Toronto recently and he was seeking advice while contemplating the purchase o a particular property

    he was very interested in. He kept reerring to valuations and how there seemed to be an inconsistency within the marketplace even

    when including the variables such as schools, proximity to nightlie, parking, etc - all very tangible and reasonable components o course.

    Then I asked him about their decision making process... was the decision to buy the home fnancially or emotionally driven? The National

    Association o Realtors conducts routine studies and in July reported 31% o Buyers in the marketplace are age 33 to 47 (the largestgroup by age category) and the median age was 39 - ironically the exact age o my riend. It was a very long conversation but a Buyer

    simply cannot deny that there is someone else in the marketplace looking or the exact same eatures in a home. Thereore, the largest

    contributing actor to valuation in todays real estate market is very simply appeal (or what the theory calls Demand). It was a healthy

    debate or hours and he summarized quite eloquently - So what youre saying is I have to bid just above what the next emotional Buyer

    is willing to pay or it. Exactly.

    PALOS VERDES COUNTRY CLUB

    BY MAUREEN MEGOWAN / RE/MAX ESTATE PROPERTIES

    Shortly ater Frank Vanderlip acquired the 16,000 acre Palos Verdes Peninsula with a

    group o investors in 1913 he developed plans or a gol course on his property. Original plans

    included the construction o a magnifcent gol club on the blus overlooking Portuguese

    Bend, to be known as Los Palos Verdes Country Club. The gol links was to include a

    clubhouse with 150 guest rooms, locker rooms, and numerous dining and community rooms.

    Other amenities were to include a large swimming pool, tennis courts, polo grounds, and a

    yacht club with concrete pier. World War I however curtailed these plans or the country club.

    In the early 1920s, developers o the Palos Verdes Project built a number o amenities to promote

    lot sales in the new community o Palos Verdes Estates. The gol club was constructed at the same

    time as other amenities o the new city, such as the La Venta Inn and the Palos Verdes Swim Club.

    Palos Verdes Gol Club opened on November 15, 1924. The gol course was designed and built by the

    team o William P. Billy Bell and George C. Thomas. It is a classic example o courses built during the

    era that has become known as the Golden Age o Gol Course Architecture. Other examples o their

    work in Southern Cali. include, the North Course at Los Angeles CC, Riviera CC, Bel Air CC, as well as

    the Ojai Valley Inn Gol Course. The course was designed with ocean views rom 14 o its 18 holes. The

    club was very popular in the 1920s with celebrities such as Douglas Fairbanks.

    The land on which the course is situated is owned by the City o Palos Verdes Estates,

    and the club is operated under a concession agreement with the City. The club is semi-

    private, with private memberships sold giving club members priority tee times, and only club

    members and residents o the City (in the aternoon) may play on the weekends. The public

    does have access at certain times and days mid-week.

    The clubhouse was designed by Clarence E. Howard, with landscaping design by the

    Olmsted Brothers. The landscaping included hundreds o Eucalyptus Trees, which line the

    airways o several holes, most o which had been planted years beore by early ranchers. The

    clubhouse cost $60,000 to build, and it was determined almost immediately that it needed to be

    expanded. Both the course itsel and its restaurant quickly became overcrowded. The building

    was extended 60 t to the east to make room or a new gol shop and caddy house. The clubhouse

    was completely remodeled in 2007.

    Home prices in the U.S. have historically risen at an average of

    about 3.6% a year. Interestingly, if the housing market had not

    gone through the recent boom and bust cycle, and prices simply

    had risen at the historic average of 3.6% during the cycle, home

    prices would be almost exactly where they are today. Last year

    in Manhattan Beach the average sales price for Single Family Homes was $1,791,081, which

    would equate to a price gain of approximately $65,000 at the average price increase

    of 3.6%. Thus far in 2013, the average sales price in Manhattan Beach is $2,005,700 a

    $214,619 (12%) increase year-over-year. See more LOCAL MARKET TRENDS on page 60.

    Originally rom Atlanta, Georgia, Cindy Shearin o NW Real Estate Brokers

    grew up around the real estate business; her aunts and uncles operated a

    development company and as a child she was ascinated by the building, buying

    and selling. Immediately out of college, Shearin worked in building management

    and ultimately marketing in Texas. Eventually, she ended up in the South Bay

    selling and developing real estate. I loved what I was doing, I worked 24/7 and

    was hooked on the business, she explains. After over 20 years in the business,

    she nds being able to watch families grow and my ability to help the nextgeneration with their real estate decisions incredibly rewarding.

    Shearins oce consists o two other licensed agents and two ull-time

    assistants. In addition, I regularly attend industry seminars to stay abreast of

    industry developments, and am very well connected via round table groups

    attended by the top South Bay real estate professionals.

    Shearins specic expertise when it comes to the South Bay are denitely

    in Manhattan Village and The Beach House properties. Shearin can answer any

    questions one might have about building or remodeling in Manhattan Village.

    This week I am bringing to market a single family home in the Manhattan

    Village. The Manhattan Village is the only gated community in Manhattan

    Beach. The excitement stems from the fact that it has been many many monthssince a single family home has come available for purchase, she explains.

    Until recently, the changes that are occurring in the Manhattan Village

    have been a well kept secret for many residents of the South Bay. New homes

    are starting to be built and total remodels are occurring. Its well landscaped

    common areas, community pools and spas, pedestrian riendly environment and

    proximity to retail amenities, makes the community unique to the South Bay. As

    an added bonus, one can walk to the newly renovated Manhattan Country Club

    and enjoy its full range of offerings.

    The Manhattan Village is beginning to be recognized or the unique eatures

    it offers. Where else in the South Bay can children safely ride their bikes on the

    streets, play and walk their pets in the common areas and then go or a swim inthe community pool? Adults enjoy being able to take a leisurely stroll along well

    lit walkways at any hour o the day, plus be walking distance rom banks, stores,

    restaurants, movie theatres, golng, the country club and more.

    The Manhattan Village community abuts directly onto the Manhattan Village

    Mall, which will soon undergo a major renovation, while the adjacent Manhattan

    Country Club already transformed through a recent multi-million dollar overhaul.

    While she lives and works mainly in Manhattan Beach, Shearin loves the

    entire South Bay, and has been in love with it since she rst set oot here in her

    mid-twenties. The South Bay has an incredible blend of educated, professional

    and accomplished population rom all parts o the world, combined with a small

    town avor and sought after value system, she says. Life in the Beach Citiescannot be surpassed anywhere in the world!

    AvAlon,CAtAlinA

    written By deniSe kano

    While many o our South Bay cities have recently enjoyed milestone birthdays

    and celebrations, one town in particular stands out due to its unique location and

    colorful history.

    Catalina Island is located just twenty-two miles across the bay rom the Los

    Angeles Harbor, and Avalon is the only incorporated city on the island, as well

    as the southernmost city in Los Angeles County. While Avalon has a population

    of approximately 3,800 year-round residents, that number swells to an annual

    count of one million due to visitors and tourists making the exciting trip across

    the bay.

    As the ship slowly approaches Catalina Island and Avalon Harbor comes into

    view, visitors feel as though they are arriving at a beautiful Mediterranean port.

    Avalon is so picturesque and quaint, and at just over 2-2/3 square miles in size,

    its easy to stroll around the town.

    Small, cottage-type homes make up the downtown area, and typically youll

    see a gol car parked nearby every home -- the main mode o transportation on

    Avalon. There are very few cars on the island and not a single trafc light. You

    truly feel a world away from the crowds and stress of the mainland.

    Many on the mainland have been visiting Catalina Island for years.

    We started going in the 50s with our parents, says Kenneth DiNoto, a

    longtime Palos Verdes resident. It was our favorite vacation spot with our

    family. Wed go on the big white steamship. DiNoto recalls the steamship being

    surrounded by speedboats upon arriving at Avalon, and as the steamship was

    tying up to the dock, local kids would dive for coins.

    Although Avalon has changed a little bit over these one hundred years, the

    town has maintained a small, beach town vibe that is getting harder to nd along

    our populated coast.

    A conscientious effort has been made to provide that same friendly

    atmosphere, says DiNoto, who recalls dropping shing lines off the end of the

    pier as a kid. Eventually, he took his own children to Catalina every year, and now

    there is an annual family trip that includes his grandchildren.

    Todays Avalon obviously owes much to William Wrigley, Jr., who oversaw

    much o the development o this resort town, including the construction o the

    nearly twelve-story high Catalina Casino. More history on the popular Casino

    as well as Catalina history can be ound at the Catalina Museum, located in the

    Casino building. In honor of Avalons 100th birthday, the Museum is hosting a

    special retrospective, Avalon: 100 Years of Bizarre, Fascinating, and Colorful

    History. The exhibit opens on October 11, 2013. For more information, go to

    www.catalinamuseum.org.

    Unique and textured surfaces redene what it means to live alongside beauty and

    art; they set ones home apart rom the ordinary and include art in our day-to-day

    cooking, living, and general home experiences that which we cant nd in generic

    store-bought tiles and grout. Mosaics are a fabulous way to bring texture and beauty

    into any area o your home, including bathrooms, kitchens, outdoor patios, and even

    living rooms.

    The Metamorphosis Collection, designed by artist Sara Baldwin or New Ravenna

    Mosaics, transforms organic patterns and textures into the timeless craft of custom

    artistic mosaic. Inspired by nature, Baldwin feels that its beauty and inspiration

    seem inexhaustible to the artist and creator. Ravennas stone cuts are named after

    the natural patterns, textures and hues that inspired them, such as Mist, Cosmos,

    Mirage, and Path.

    As a landscape architect in the Pacic Northwest, Shannon Lester continually

    came across the same problem. Many of her clients could never nd the modern

    planters they so desperately wanted for their outdoor spaces.

    Thats when Lester had an idea. What if she created them? With over 15 years of

    experience designing public spaces and private landscapes, Lester decided to form

    her own company called Steel Life in early 2012.

    I wanted to create architecturally interesting planters that were made in the

    United States, Lester said. I also thought a lot about sustainability.

    Hoping to make the perect planters or cacti, succulents and other drought-

    tolerant plants, Lester designed The Desert Collection. The shape of the bowls

    eliminate the need for excessive soil and unnecessary water usage that is typicallyused in deeper containers. The designs also reduce the chance of plants being

    overwatered and having their roots rot in the process.

    Steel Lie oers ve dierent design options within the collection, ranging in

    price from $98-$296. Short and tall, narrow and wide, the collections planters can

    t almost anywhere. The mod dish offers three different height options, while the

    matchstick planter comes in two different sizes. The three other options in the

    collection include the jack planter, the shallow root vessel and the living wall.

    While color options vary depending on the planter, Steel Lie planters come

    in citrus (orange), sky (blue), verdant (lime green), frost (white) and citrine (red).

    I really wanted to bring color into the garden, Lester said. These pops of

    color are really bold and bright. It really is a conversation piece

    Assembling the planters in Bend, Oregon, which is a ew hours south o Portland,

    Steel Lie works with local artisans, cratsmen and small businesses in the Pacic

    Northwest. Each bowl is individually spun, with Steel Life using machinery that

    dates back to the 1900s. A few of the planters are even made from locally salvaged

    and up cycled steel, while the walnut and American white oak used in the other

    planters is nished with UV-resistant renewable oils and waxes.

    And while Lesters designs were specically or planters, plenty o customers

    have found other unique ways to use them. Lester said that shes seen customers

    use the planters as fruit bowls, coolers and even letter holders.Receiving interest in Steel Lie rom all over the country and even into

    Australia, Lester said shes sold planters from California to New York. Specically

    in Southern Caliornia, the planters can be purchased at stores in Palm Springs,

    Costa Mesa and Irvine.

    I really thought about the design, Lester said. Unlike a lot of designs out

    there, the ones I created are for specic types of plants. I want the plant to live a

    long time.
