Just Sold – Our Mediterranean Oasis

Grandway Estates was the Designer and General Contractor for this Mediterranean Oasis located in esteemed Palos Verdes Estates. This 4,505 SF two story custom estate consists of 4 Bedrooms and 4.5 Bathrooms.

As you enter the foyer of this two story custom estate, you are greeted by a backdrop of windows looking out onto the ocean. Within this open floorplan, you seamlessly travel between the spacious living room, kitchen, family room and dining room.

Touring During Covid-19

Due to Covid-19, Grandway took a very different approach when it came to traditional marketing for our custom estate. Being unable to host a Broker’s Open or Weekly Open Houses, we focused solely on Digital Marketing. Our buyer who is from New York, saw our listing online and had almost every meeting over FaceTime & Zoom. 2020 has been a very different year than what we are used to – but this challenge has proved that ultimately anything can be successfully achieved.

Coming Soon

Grandway is in the process of completing our other custom estate in Palos Verdes. Make sure to join our newsletter to stay updated on when we go to market with Via Del Monte! It could be your forever home!

Tips & Tricks For Fall 2020

Ohh Fall! What can we say other than Pumpkin Patches, lots of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Halloween + Thanksgiving! Considering this year may be a little different than last year, it should not stop us from decorating, eating, and spending quality time with our loved ones.

Things To Consider When It Comes To Elevating Your Home This Fall

A few simple changes can help upgrade your home into a Pinterest Worthy Space. Read some of our easy tips you can incorporate in your home today:
  • Color palette – consider what colors speak to you! We are currently obsessed with burnt orange, emerald green, gold and chocolate
  • Gather outside – hang some string lights, get a few plush pillows and grab a cozy blanket to really set the fall aesthetic
  • Decorate your front porch – utilize lanterns, artificial leaves, pumpkins, squash, throw blankets and a homemade wreathe
  • Consider your space and how much time you can truly allocate to decorating and maintaining your home

Some Fall Fun To DIY

  • Wheat Centerpiece – Venture off to your local Farmer’s Market, purchase a bundle of dried wheat, tie colored ribbon around the base and voila! For an elevated look consider placing your bundles inside a glass jar.
  • Cornucopia 2.0 – Looking for a modern twist on this traditional piece? Look into different textures, colors, and themes. Head to your local craft store and pick up various pumpkins, squash, and acorns. Don’t forget to grab some acrylic paint, glitter, and velour fabric to really elevate your piece.
  • Pumpkin Centerpiece – This is another fun one your guests will be raving about all night! This is a longer process but the results will be worth it. You will need floral foam, shears, a small pumpkin, and fresh flowers of your choice – choose between carnations, roses, and sunflowers. Another tip to remember, try to soak your floral foam overnight.
  • Pear Place Cards – Hosting a dinner party? Write your guests names on wooden leaves and attach them to pear stems!

Decorating 101

  • Don’t be afraid to step outside of your box and use color – deep velvets, rich purples, and even jet black will instantly modernize any room in the house.
  • Plaid is a great piece which can later help you transition to winter.
  • Consider mixing inexpensive elements, like wood chargers, with delicate china. This trick can really change up a look without breaking the budget.
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. F. Scott Fitzgerald

24HR Fitness & Chapter 11

COVID forced multiple 24 Hour Fitness locations into an Chapter 11 reorganization and while other locations closed, Grandway led the prized Texas SuperSport location into a restructure of their lease.

Blessing In Disguise?

With the state mandated shutdowns and enforcement, COVID sadly forced multiple 24 Hour Fitness and Gold’s Gym into Chapter 11 Reorganization. While other locations closed, Grandway successfully led 24 Hour Fitness through its’ transformational journey.

Lease restructuring helped this prized Texas SuperSport location emerge a stronger tenant, laser-focused on bringing their members the best fitness experience at the gym and at home. Another way Grandway’s foresight and experience turned a bad situation into an opportunity.

Tips & Tricks For Summer 2020

Hello Summer – argumentatively everyone’s favorite season! From beach days, to long nights, and Summer Fridays, what more can for you? Considering we need to spend our summer cautiously; it should not get in the way of creating and making new memories with our families.

Things To Consider When It Comes To Summer + Safety

Between Covid, sunburn, and mosquitoes, we need to be stay prepared. Read some of our tips you should consider incorporating today:
  • If you need to escape to the beach consider driving an hour north of Los Angeles and you will be faced with smaller crowds.
  • If we are experiencing a heat wave, grab an extra water and snacks to keep on hand just in case you aren’t feeling well.
  • The sun is not your friend – always remember to grab sunscreen and reapply every two hours.

Weekend Getaway

Even though Federal, State, local laws and Stay at Home Orders are changing rapidly, remember to exercise care to protect yourself and assess your own risks. Confirm lodging, dining options, and national park + beach closures before you leave to your destination. Living in Los Angeles we are very fortunate to be a short drive away from some ‘gram worthy destinations – here are some of our top picks:

  • Palm Springs – About 100 miles from LA, you can enjoy golfing, poolside lounging and an array of restaurants. Walk around Downtown, check out the Art Museum and take a drive down to Joshua Tree National Park.
  • Santa Barbara – If you like wine then we highly recommend taking a trip up to SB. This coastal beach town really embodies the carefree, calm, “in the moment” lifestyle.
  • Catalina Island – Less than 26 miles from LA, Catalina is a perfect day trip for anyone who is looking for adventure, dining, and fishing! Catalina Express ferry sails from both Long Beach and San Pedro.
  • Laguna Beach – Known for it’s art scene and beautiful beaches, this is a perfect spot to spend Sunday afternoon. Make sure to check out an abandoned Pirate’s tower in Victoria Beach.
  • Sedona, Arizona – Soaring Red Rocks cradle an array of resorts, spas, art galleries and boutique wineries. Surrounded by 1.8 million acres of open space, explore various hiking trails as you wind through these infamous Red Rocks. Sedona is a bit of a drive but this is a sight you do not want to miss!

Go Outside

Looking to stay local and not be around large crowds? Check out some of our suggestions below:
  • Need to escape the hectic lifestyle of hustle & bustle – grab your bike, drive down to the suburbs and take a nice afternoon stroll around a new community.
  • Learn how to make kombucha yourself – this is a something you may enjoy and continue to do every summer.
Summertime is always the best of what might be. Charles Bowden

Staying Safe on Site During Covid-19

On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization declared the Novel Coronavirus Disease, COVID-19, a pandemic. Two days later, a national emergency was declared in the United States concerning the COVID-19 Outbreak. Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease, diabetes or compromised immune systems appear to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19.
