Haggerty Mansion (now Neighborhood Church) - 1

1928, Armand Monaco; Olmsted and Olmsted, landscape architects
415 Paseo del Mar
"An extensive seaside villa, more Italian than Spanish. The house is impressively detailed, especially in its ironwork. If Pliny the Younger could have owned this villa and its gardens, we feel he would have been very happy." from An Architectrual Guidebook to Los Angeles by David Gebhard & Robert Winter (#15).
There are 25 entries in the book on buildings in Palos Verdes, North. I will attempt to share all of them with you.

A fantastic church and a very well cared garden.
Fantastic.
Altough I'm not visiting for a long time, it's always a pleasure dropping by.
