Within its approximately 7,700 square feet of interior living space, this regal mansion – aptly named Villa Narcissa – offers seven bathrooms and nine baths. Originally built in 1924, this estate is a testament to classical architecture and art, with its large stone fireplaces and coffered ceilings – still maintaining much of its old world charm.
The outdoors is private and stately, as well, and it offers a large brick patio – the perfect spot for a meal or to just relax in the shade – along with gazebos, sculptures, and a nice array of hedges. Sitting atop the Portuguese Bend on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, some fantastic views can be taken in here. In all, the property includes 11.5 acres.
Just some of the additional features you’ll find include a sauna and a library…and the possibility of a few ghosts. As the story goes, Narcissa Cox Vanderlip took an axe and killed her family on the property, and then later turned the axe on herself. Throughout the years, “sightings” of ghosts have been reported.
Located at 100 Vanderlip Drive in Rancho Palos Verdes, this one-of-a-kind property is currently on the market – for the first time in nearly 100 years – for $12.995 million. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
