Fabulous Cuisine for Santa Monica Property Owners at The Upper West

Enjoy The Upper West near Santa Monica properties.When most people think of Santa Monica properties, they think of the beautiful beaches of Southern California. The amazing restaurant scene is another awesome perk for everyone lucky enough to live here. One of the newer restaurants making a name for itself is The Upper West, at 3321 Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica. Executive chef Nick Shipp may be young, but he’s got an enviably diverse background. Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, he’s been cooking since he was 15 and working part time in the high-end restaurants of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. He brings an innovative, playful twist to his menu. The menu is constantly updated, with fresh tastes and ingredients from around the world.

The Upper West also boasts a 27-foot bar and a long list of signature cocktails. Guests can relax in the spacious restaurant, with 28-foot ceilings and urban-rustic decor. Or enjoy a view of Santa Monica on the patio.

Travel to Ancient Rome at the Getty Near Pacific Palisades Homes

Visit the Getty Villa near Pacific Palisades homes.The Getty Villa is one of the best-known museums in Los Angeles. The tranquil setting is a delightful place for residents of Pacific Palisades homes to spend a few hours or a whole day. It’s located just off Highway 1, but once you’ve parked in the underground garage, you’ll feel transported back to the ancient Mediterranean. The Villa is built to resemble the Villa dei Papiri in Herculaneum, Italy, which was buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79. The peristyle gardens are an important part of the overall atmosphere of a true Roman villa, and the Getty Villa boasts a stunning garden, with herbs, a fish pond, and grapevine bowers. Visitors can take in a view of the Pacific Ocean at one end of the gardens.

The collection of ancient art and artifacts gives visitors a window into the life and creative genius of the ancient Greek and Roman world. J. Paul Getty’s collection includes examples from 6500 B.C. to 400 A.D. In addition to the permanent collection, there are temporary exhibitions of special interest. From now until August 2015, see the Berthouville Treasure, a collection of ancient gold and silver luxury items. It was accidentally discovered by a French farmer in 1830. This is the first time the collection has been exhibited outside Paris.

The Getty Villa is a treasure for all who live in Los Angeles, especially those in Pacific Palisades homes. Visit Wednesday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free, though reservations are required. Go to Getty.edu/visit/villa to book your time.
