"Palos Verdes Drive East Area"

This neighborhood on the eastern side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula is bordered by the City of Rolling Hills on the west, the Eastview area to the east, and the Mira Catalina area to the south (south of Crest Road). Although many of the homes here have large lots, the steep terrain restricts the useability of many yards. Many of the homes in this area have city and Harbor views. Palos Verdes Drive East is the main road through the center of the neighborhood. Many of the lots in this area are zoned for horses. Neighborhoods include Miraleste Hills, Colt Road, Coach Road, Bronco, Sunnyside Ridge, Rockinghorse and Roan Road.

The one problem to this area is the difficulty of access. Palos Verdes Drive East is a very narrow two lane road with lots of turns and is generally far removed from shopping areas. The drive to the Peninsula Center area of the Palos Verdes Peninsula is a good 15 minutes, and access to grocery stores are at least 10 minutes away.

The main attraction of the area are the wonderful hiking trails in the area, and the rustic feel to the area. Many of its residents like the feeling of being removed from the city hustle and bustle below.

Access to schools include the local Miraleste elementary for kindergarten, Mira Catalina or Dapplegray elementary and Miraleste Interemediate schools. Access to either Peninsula High or Palos Verdes High are a 15 to 20 minute drive. The school district is one of the highest rated in the State.
