bOTANICAL GARDENS

Nestled along Crenshaw Boulevard in Palos Verdes Peninsula, the South Coast Botanic Garden and its 87 acres may be the best kept secret in all of the South Bay.

Probably the greatest single event that would shape the future of Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills Estates occurred in 1953. Since 1944, the Great Lakes Carbon Corporation had leased a 300-acre tract of land on the north side of the Peninsula for mining of diatomaceous earth (the original mine included the current site of the South bay botanical Gardens, the former Palos Verdes Landfill, and Ernie Howlett Park, and the remnants of this mine can be seen at the southwest intersection of Hawthorne blvd. and Via Valmonte) from the Vanderlip family. Although this mine’s resources had nearly been exhausted, another rich deposit was known to exist on a 165-acre tract near the crest of the Peninsula. For two years, the Great Lakes Carbon Corporation had been unsuccessfully attempting to purchase this property. Finally, Frank Vanderlip Jr., President of the Palos Verdes Corporation, agreed to sell, provided that Great Lakes purchase all of the stock in the Palos Verdes Corporation for about $9 million, so that the sale would be taxed at capital gains rates. Upon completion of the transaction in December 1953 Great Lakes Carbon Corporation suddenly owned 6,800 acres of prime undeveloped land in the center of the Peninsula, all that was left of the 16,000 acres bought by Frank Vanderlip Sr. from Mr. George Bixby in 1913, with the exception of 500 acres retained by the Vanderlip family in the Portuguese bend area.

What happened next was not surprising. The plans for mining operations were quickly discarded when it was discovered that the quality of the dicalite deposit was not good and a group of well-known architects and engineers were hired to create a master plan to develop the property. Great Lakes also formed a 79%/21% partnership with Capital Company, an experienced real estate firm. Capital Company, in the late 1930’s became a subsidiary of Transamerica Corp. and in 1964 changed its name to Transamerica Development Co. Fueled by the master plan created by the Great Lakes Carbon Corporation and the burgeoning economic growth occurring in the South bay area, the remaining unincorporated area on the Peninsula began to develop rapidly and in ever-increasing densities. On April 1, 1950, the Palos Verdes Peninsula had about 6,500 residents, and by June 1967, the number of residents had grown to approx. 54,000. By 1967, only about 1,600 acres remained to be developed.

GRATITUDE
i’m humbled and proud to announce that South Bay Digs has turned twenty this issue – 20 issues published since we launched back in october of 2010. what an amazing ten months it has been! first and foremost, i would like to thank our loyal advertisers, who have not only supported us since day one, but are also our biggest cheerleaders and make this all possible.

The luxury guest quarters is about as richly elaborate as the main house. And, the master bedroom is like a five star suite. There’s no need to put any works of art in this home, it’s a work of art in itself. Built-in speakers through most of the home so the music can flow. The sky deck has an indoor loft leading out onto the outdoor deck with built-in BBQ, sink, fireplace and an absolute clear panoramic view of the ocean. In fact the huge ocean views are from 2 levels of this home with well-placed windows, 6 balconies and corner-less frameless windows. Wood beam ceilings, walnut hardwood floors, temperature controlled wine room, dual staircases and plenty of options adorn this home. 2 short blocks to the beach and 2 blocks to downtown Hermosa Beach.

ALMOST 4000 Sq. Ft.
of Bliss

Since humble beginnings last year, South Bay Digs is now the largest real estate magazine and real estate marketing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930), The platform in the South Bay. our last Sign of Four, A Scandal in Bohemia issue, (July 22 cover Date,) had over $360,860,000 in active property listings advertised in the magazine! our interactive online media channels continue to expand and have delivered over 160,000 digital media impressions for our advertisers in the first six months of this year alone! Real Estate is Local...and that’s our Passion. the real estate market is undergoing a total transformation as the fragmentation in media creates an ever-growing surplus of information and choices for the real estate consumer. therefore, to effectively market your property and engage potential homebuyers you need a comprehensive and targeted multi-channel platform to engage them. that’s why we leverage the most relevant media channels (print-online-social media-community network) to directly connect the active home consumer (buyers and sellers) to the hyper-local real estate network of Realtors, Banks, Lenders and real estate professionals in the South Bay. Don’t miss our feature article starting on page 31 on the Botanical gardens in palos verdes as we explore the beauty of this 87-acre wonderland in the South Bay. our front cover home in hermosa Beach Sand Section is the quintessential Beach villa close to the sand and downtown – check the details on page 16. finally, don’t miss our home of the week on page 9– a truly stunning property perched high on the esplanade Bluff in redondo Beach overlooking the pacific ocean with amazing views from catalina to malibu. finally, see how we make print interactive at www.SouthBayDiggs.com - where we make the printed page come alive with audio and video, hot links, social media connectivity and more!

In Real Estate…Time really is Money.

Selling your Home? Let me show you how to realize Optimum Home Value
Step 1: Intelligent Pricing.
You gain maximum exposure and reach a greater total percentage of prospective buyers when you price your property at market value. If your home is listed at a price that is above market value, you will miss out on prospective buyers who would otherwise be prime candidates to purchase your home. Contrarily, if you list your home at a price that is below market value, you will ultimately sell for a price that is not the optimum value for your home.

Step 2: Time Value of Money
A critical success factor when pricing your home is timing. A property attracts the most attention, excitement and interest from the real estate community and potential buyers when it is first listed on the market. If your home is priced improperly at the initial listing phase, or ‘peak interest period,’ your property may languish on the market. Ultimately, this may lead to a below market value sale price, or worse, no sale at all. Therefore, your home has the greatest probability for a ‘optimum value’ sale when it is new on the market and the price is reasonable established.

Step 3: Optimum Home Value = P x T Call me for a private consultation!

THE PEDIGREE OF A NEW HOME
All builders are the same. Wait a minute . . . that would be like saying children are all the same. They have the same parents, same upbringing, same household yet two kids from the same family and parents can often be completely opposite in personality and interests. New homes throughout the South Bay also can be as diverse, even though they have similar beginnings. In our unique South Bay Real Estate market, values can vary dramatically, lot to lot, street to street, and builder to builder. It’s important to know where your new home came from! Having built 2 homes personally for my family, as well as partnering in numerous building projects throughout the beach cities and selling thousands of homes over the past 24 years, I am often asked what the significant difference amongst the builders is locally and what does this mean when considering a home for purchase? For the purpose of this article we are mainly referring to builders and developers in the South Bay, the area just South of Los Angeles, along the coast. First and foremost it is important to understand the difference between a builder and a developer/general contractor. What most commonly refer to as a “builder” is a licensed general contractor who hires subcontractors to build a home. They supervise the subcontractors; manage the entire building process from planning, foundation, framing and interior finishes. They are the ones you call when things go wrong with your home and you need them fixed. A builder is often paid, based on the cost of the project, either a flat fee or a specific percentage of the total cost of construction. On the other hand, there are developers. A developer is typically the owner of a particular building project. They are the dreamers behind the project. They raise the funds for the project, hire the builder and jointly supervise the project with the builder. The developer earns their income though profit in the project after paying the builder and subcontractors. There are many cases when a builder who is a licensed general contractor will also be the developer, however not all developers are licensed contractors. Developers are often risk takers who, quite often, have done well in another career and have ventured into the business of home development. They have seen others profit in construction and feel they can do as well or better than those they know. Having been through two Real Estate downturns, one in the early 90’s and again 2007, I have witnessed many developers turn their risk and reward to doom and gloom. Many developers get on a roll and profit handsomely and then take all of their profit to buy more projects. They don’t see an end in sight and continue the process, leveraging along the way. If they are caught with a sharp decline in pricing when a project is complete it is easy to lose ten years of profit in just one short year. The years that have passed since 2007 to now have certainly wiped out quite a list of these developers. However, not all faltered and fell by the wayside. There are also quite a few that pulled some of their chips off of the table and slowed their buying and construction projects in time to save the profits they worked so long and hard for. Telltale signs of smart developers and quality builders pepper the streets & neighborhoods from El Segundo to Palos Verdes. With a little knowledge, you can learn to recognize the work of the developers and builders that invested in quality projects vs. those that pursued base line “spec” projects. Whether you support or oppose new construction in the community, knowing who you are buying from is very important. When looking for a newer home in the area you will often note that the realtors will commonly state who the builder is/was. Once you become alert to this trend, you will also notice that sometimes there is no mention at all of the builder. Certain builders and developers have earned a local reputation for being premium, quality builders while others have earned a less prestigious reputation. Buyers often ask what makes one builder better than the next. The key differences are finish quality and overall design. There are builders that have a keen sense for design, much like a professional design firm, while other builders have somehow overlook the fine nuances of design altogether. In a rapidly appreciating Real Estate market almost any builder can build a home that meets city guidelines, sell it, and turn a profit. The question is: will the home stand the test of time? Sometimes the quality of finishes can be difficult to detect for a novice buyer. The biggest challenge is the installation process that is used for many items, including but not limited to, flooring, tile, and granite. For example if the proper installation of tile is not used, normal settling can occur, however the cracks that normally form in slab work can make its way to the finish tile. Although the installation may meet city code it may not withstand normal settling issues. There are also numerous, completely undetectable materials in homes that can vary in quality, such as; the thickness of drywall used (which is either 1/2 inch or the higher quality thickness of 5/8 inch drywall). Thicker drywall will withstand the normal movement in a home much better than 1/2 inch will. With insulation there are many walls where it is not required by standard building codes, but some builders will go the extra mile to insulate those areas that are not required by simple code in order to help with sound control, as well as to promote future energy savings. The lists of these types of upgrades are endless. The important thing is to ask questions of your agent and builder. Be sure to ask for references about the builder that built the home you are about to buy. Are they still in business? Are there warranty items that are still within their responsibility? If there are warranty items, how has that builder responded to the requests in the past? How does the general Real Estate community feel about the builder that built the home? Do they speak positively about them or negatively? It has been proven that certain builders can demand a higher price for what appears to be the exact same home that another builder has built. It is certainly OK to buy the more inexpensive home, especially when budget is a large factor in your decision. My recommendation when considering a newer construction home and examining future equity reserves is to just be very aware that your 3,253 square foot Mediterranean home built in 2006 by builder B may realistically sell for less than your neighbor’s 3,253 Mediterranean home built in 2006 by that was built by builder A. Armed with that knowledge, you will be able to make a more sound decision when either buying or selling a home in the area. The South Bay is very unique as the newer homes are not built in tracts like many new home communities throughout the nation. New home communities are much easier to analyze as they are typically built by the same builder, with the same quality and are much more clearly compared side-by-side. Currently, there are roughly 100 newer homes for sale (built in 2005-2011) in the area. Prices range from $269,900 for a senior community condo to over $10 million for a beach front home on The Strand. When considering any purchase, whether it be a newer construction home or an older, historic one, be sure to ask questions and demand logical answers! It makes home ownership and planning for the future a much more positive experience.

otanic Gardens

by Quinn roberTs

Nestled along Crenshaw Boulevard in Palos Verdes Peninsula, the South Coast Botanic Garden and its 87 acres may be the best kept secret in all of the South Bay. Created in 1959 on a sanitary landfill by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the area now boasts more than 2,500 different species of plants from as far away as Australia, the Mediterranean, and Southern Africa. The wide variety of plant life also provides food and shelter to a large wildlife and bird population, with over 200 species of birds sighted annually.

“We exist to provide a unique horticulture experience, and because of the climate that we are in, we have the luxury of doing so,” CEO Adrienne Lao said. “you can go to the cactus garden and feel like you are somewhere in Arizona. you can go to the redwood forest and get lost amongst those trees in Northern California. I don’t know where else you can do that.” Just a few popular areas for visitors include a: fuchsia garden, banyan forest, palm collection, rose garden and garden for the senses. “Anyone can start a nice manicured lawn with flower space, but to have all of these different environments in one spot makes it so unique,” said Lao. FUCHSiA GARDEn The garden contains many different species, cultivars and new introductions. Overhead shade cloth filters strong sunlight to allow fuchsias and other shade loving plants to grow and thrive.

THAT IS NICE BECAuSE WE HAVE 87 ACRES,” Lao said. “You’ll most likely never see the same thing twice.

fashioned and miniature. The garden has also been chosen as an All-American Rose Selection Public Garden. Some hybrid roses can also be found in the area, including Mister Lincoln’s and Peace. GARDEn FOR THE SEnSES This garden is best to enjoy by smell, touch, sound and sight. The plants are arranged in groups according to the different senses and are in raised beds so they are easier to touch and smell. REDWOOD GROVE Some of the tallest trees on the property, the Coast redwoods and Sequoia’s planted in the area can reach a height of 350 feet and are able to grow to 16 feet in diameter. The trees usually grow from southern Oregon down to Monterey, California.

CHILDREN’S GARDEN Most popular among kids, the garden is developed around nursery rhymes with plants to match the stories. The setting is also enhanced with a dollhouse and bridge. ACACIA COLLECTION The garden’s collection of acacias include several varieties from Australia and South Africa. One of the most beautiful is the the Golden Mimosa, which is tinted purple and blooms into a yellow puff in the spring. Also look out for another type of acacia called the glaucoptera, which features blue-green zigzag leaves.

GINkO GROVE The sole survivor of a group of plants that grew abundantly in the Jurassic and Cretaceous period, the ginko is a seed bearing plant. known as a “living fossil”, the ginko has fan-shaped leaves that turn bright yellow in the fall. Female ginko trees also have a foul smelling, edible fruit after 25 years.

PALM COLLECTION Walking throughout this section of the property, you’ll see tall king and queen palms, large Canary Island date palms and then smaller one’s like the Pygmy date palm. The only native palm called the Washingtonia filifera can also be spotted in the collection. MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN With a unique climate, full of mild, cool and rainy winters and then hot and dry summers, Mediterranean conditions can be seen in only five places in the world, one of them being California. That makes the botanic garden the best place to find native plants, including: varieties of sage and buckwheat, along with lavender and olive trees. These plants especially require little water and little to no fertilizer. Hummingbirds, butterflies and songbirds also love such plants.

TIDbITS
the garden is open 364 days a year and closed only on christmas admission to the garden is free every third tuesday of the month (on those days around 900 people come through the gates) membership is now over 3,500 people in becoming a member of the garden, people receive free membership to over 250 botanical gardens nationwide. want to find out more information, go to www.southcoastbotanicgarden.org
