Exploring Huntington Homes for Sale

  • O'Connor Estates

Among the many notable neighborhoods in the prestigious and affluent coastal community of Pacific Palisades, few are as beloved as the enclave of Huntington. Unique among the Palisades subdivisions, Huntington is known for its luxurious single-family homes, gracefully designed layout, beautiful landscaping, and tranquil atmosphere that appeals to affluent home buyers seeking an upscale, suburban lifestyle.

While acquiring a home in any of the Palisades' celebrated neighborhoods is deeply rewarding, a purchase in Huntington carries special distinction. Below, we explore what makes this breathtaking locale such a sought-after place to buy, including a look at current Huntington homes for sale.

The location and the lifestyle

Few of the area's vaunted neighborhoods offer a more convenient location than Huntington. Extending south from Sunset Boulevard to the PCH in the southeastern corner of the Palisades, its meandering east-west boundaries tuck between Chautauqua Boulevard and Potrero Canyon. It gives the neighborhood an engaging hourglass effect, where the arching upper streets seemingly cascade into its lower half.

The unique shape offers the convenience of two distinctive lifestyles — from the upper half, owners can walk to Palisades Village, Palisade Charter High School, and the adjacent Palisade Charter Elementary School. The Palisades Recreation Center and George Wolfberg Park at Potrero Canyon are even closer. Beyond the neighborhood, Interstate 405, UCLA, and Brentwood are all within a 15-minute drive via Sunset Boulevard.

The prize in owning among Huntington's lower streets is proximity to the PCH while remaining above the storied thoroughfare's daily fray. Overlooking the Pacific and Will Rogers State Beach, a home in this section of Huntington positions you minutes from high-end shopping, gourmet dining, and cultural attractions in nearby Santa Monica.

It may not prompt the oft-publicized glamor of Riviera or possess the historic romanticism tied to The Alphabets, but Huntington carries its own timeless appeal. Excellent schools, parks, and recreational facilities add to its allure for families and individuals seeking a high-quality living experience.

The draw is so magnetic it has evolved into one of Southern California's most exclusive neighborhoods, where owners rarely sell and availability is scarce. But off-market deals are always possible, and staying abreast of the market's machinations will help motivated buyers break through the aura of unattainability.

The homes

Whatever your efforts to acquire a home in Huntington Palisades, your reward is one of the region's most spectacular pieces of real estate. A sense of elegance and sophistication permeates every street, and the homes offer the utmost comfort and livability.

Characterized by their spacious layouts, high-end finishes, and impressive architectural designs, Huntington's collection of properties is among the most varied of any location in L.A. County. From classic to contemporary, the most popular styles include Colonial, California Craftsman, Mediterranean-influenced designs, and traditional builds. Fans of sleek modern houses, opulent and spacious ranch-style homes, and the celebrated timelessness of Spanish or Tudor Revivals will find plenty to love amongst Huntington's wide streets and manicured sidewalks.

Interiors are equally as diverse, from the cozy to the cosmopolitan, from 1950s-era bungalows to palatial estate-level homes overlooking Potrero Canyon; floorplans often range from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet for older residences to newer constructing that regulations eclipse the 10,000 square foot threshold.

Huntington residences also make brilliant use of the broad, expansive lots that further distinguish the neighborhood from others. Even the most prominent homes provide plenty of additional space to accommodate features such as extensive yards, swimming pools, and outdoor entertainment areas, catering to the upscale lifestyle preferences of its residents.

Available Properties

Though availability can sometimes prove scarce, the latest home to hit the market in Huntington is a prime example of the variety and grandeur typically found here.

Occupying a corner lot among Huntington's lower collection of homes, 14901 La Cumbre Drive is listed at an asking price of $11,995,000. Built in 2005, the 5,927 square-foot traditional home boasts Cape Cod influences — rare even by Huntington standards — and a versatile floor plan with spacious and cozy living spaces.

The open-concept main floor includes the best of both worlds, including a living room with a vaulted ceiling above walnut floors and windows promoting plenty of natural light. The professional-grade kitchen is a culinary delight with a Sub-Zero fridge, Wolf French top dual electric and gas stove, and a massive center island that allows a host to prep and entertain in equal measure.

Additional features include a built-in wine fridge, a walk-in butler's pantry, and a breakfast nook. A formal dining and family room with fireplace, library, and guest suite enhance the main floor offerings, while an exceedingly cozy, wood-paneled den, complete with marble top bar, fireplace, and double doors into the backyard, gives an owner respite within their retreat.

The lower level is a trove of bespoke amenities. It typifies the thought and care that goes into every Huntington home, whether a spec house, custom estate, or thoughtfully maintained home from an earlier era. 14901 La Cumbre boasts a custom-designed and built home theater from CinemaTech & Bam Luxury and an extraordinary wine cellar featuring a state-of-the-art temperature-control system housing over 500 bottles.

Capping off the incredible luxury, the home's top floor includes a sizable primary bedroom with a sitting area and fireplace and a spa-level ensuite with dual walk-in wardrobes. Three additional bedrooms provide more flexibility for families of all sizes or owners with specific spatial needs, such as a home office or gym. The backyard is its own private escape with a slate patio, wood-burning fireplace, and resort-worthy, solar-heated saltwater pool. The spa and waterfall feature provides the finishing to this beautifully landscaped oasis.
