The Highlands is a community near the end of Sunset Boulevard bordering Topanga about 5 miles from downtown Pacific Palisades and the village. It’s almost its own separate community high up in the hill overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean and Palisades Drive.
Home to about 3500 residents, the Highlands, also known as Palisades Highlands, is one of the newest areas in the city. It’s more of a planned community than any other part of Pacific Palisades and if you’re looking for a home with stunning, unmatched views and luxury design, The Highlands is an ideal location. Beach access is about 10 minutes away and most homes have spectacular panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding communities.
Homeowners of The Highlands are allowed membership to the Summit Club, a resort-style clubhouse with a community swimming pool, relaxing spa, fitness facility, tennis courts, and a private park.
This upscale family community on the west side of Los Angeles in the Santa Monica Mountains offers several community facilities in this multi-acre resort. There’s a full-time staff with athletic clinics, we can barbecues, movie nights, private tennis lessons, free Internet, and many biking and hiking trails connected around the Topanga State Park.
