Welcome to PVHA.org
From the beginning, the Palos Verdes Homes Association and the architectural review committee known as the “Palos Verdes Art Jury” have strived to preserve and uphold the Protective Restrictions set forth by the Palos Verdes Project in 1923. Even today, every property in the city of Palos Verdes Estates and the original section of Miraleste in Rancho Palos Verdes are subject to these recorded deed restrictions.
The Art Jury is comprised of local architects who review all projects in Palos Verdes Estates and Miraleste to determine if the designs meet the criteria outlined in the restrictions. Any project that modifies the exterior of a building or the lot such as: additional square footage, window/door changes, changing roofing material, paint colors, garage doors, trellises, fences, pool, spa, landscaping, etc. requires Art Jury review and approval. This process is separate from any City approvals that may be required for a project.
Whether you are currently a property owner, prospective buyer, an architect or contractor, our purpose is to provide information and assist you in your residential and commercial projects as it pertains to the Palos Verdes Homes Association, our procedures and goals.
As you navigate our website, you will find much of the information very helpful but in the event it leads to further questions, please call us directly or visit our office. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to discuss potential projects, provide pertinent information and assist you through our review process.
