Suzanne Perkins, a co-listing agent for this esteemed property, is quoted in this Washington Post article written by Amy Dobson (2017), Nixon’s Western White House in Southern California lists for $63.5 million. Dobson writes about the high profile guests that have visited the property over the years, including, “Foreign dignitaries, heads of state, Bob Hope, Henry Kissinger, Arnold Palmer, and Leonid Brezhnev.”
La Casa Pacifica is the most significant oceanfront estate in Southern California. Once home to President Richard M. Nixon, it has been the setting for numerous social and political events in its storied past. It is comprised of two parcels totaling 5.45 acres with 480 linear feet of beachfront. Featured three times in Architectural Digest, the Spanish Colonial Revival architecture masterfully balances elegance with a touch of whimsy. The gleaming white structures contrast perfectly against the vibrant colors of the lush greenery that surrounds them. Stands of palms and Monterey Cypress sway in the breezes, connected by expanses of emerald lawns and impeccably kept seaside gardens. The completely walled compound affords panoramic views of the ocean, islands, and sunsets from its preferred elevation.
There are approximately 15,000 square feet among all the structures on the property, which include a restored and modernized ca. 1927 main residence of approx. 9,000 square feet; an entertaining pavilion; a two-bedroom guest house; a pool; a lighted N/S tennis court; staff buildings; and a private well. San Clemente is renown for the ‘most idyllic climate in the world and is easily accessible to Newport Beach, Los Angeles and the best of Southern California’s amenities.
