Please refer to my overall view of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, as well as this section about the city of Rolling Hills.
Privacy and serenity characterize life in Rolling Hills, an entirely gated city with private roads and three guarded gates. Access to the city is by permit and guests must be authorized to a gate officer, from a resident, for entrance. Rolling Hills is considered to be one of the most beautiful residential communities in the world.
Rolling Hills is an equestrian city where many families have traditionally kept horses on their properties. It has an extensive 23 mile private trail system, and the RHCA provides the community with two riding rings (Hesse Gap and Poppy Trail). There are also three tennis courts at the main gate location.
Most of the homes are only one story high, on one-to-five-acre estates, and all are painted the "approved" white in keeping with the Rolling Hills Community Association rules. There are no street lights or sidewalks in the city and outdoor lighting is limited.
About 2,000 residents live on 1,889 acres in the center of the Peninsula, a three-square mile area of homes, hills and canyons, all protected by the three guarded entrances. With few exceptions, the smallest parcel of land here is one acre, with parcels of two or more acres available among the approximately 700 sites in Rolling Hills. These properties are prized by those who seek breathtaking ocean, mountain, city lights and canyon vistas, open land for horses, and a serene tempo to life. There are no zones for commmerce in the city of Rolling Hills.
The Rolling Hills Community Association's annual residential assessment is based upon .20 cents per hundred dollars of the assessed valuation of the property established by Los Angeles County, payable twice a year.
Residents experience the gracious "country" lifestyle, while enjoying the serenity of the surrounding natural beauty in one of the most prestigious locations in the world.
