President Richard Nixon’s “Western White House” Is On the Market For $65 Million

At the beginning of his presidential term, California native Richard M. Nixon purchased a 5.45-acre Spanish-style compound that was home to him and his wife Pat for nearly two decades. The home was utilized for political meetings with various world leaders and gatherings with celebrities. The property has been on and off the market since 2015 and was most recently listed in May 2019 for $57.5 million. It was taken off the market at the beginning of 2020, and now it’s back on the market for $65 million. The ocean-front estate, known as “La Casa Pacifica,” has the distinction of being the largest fully gated oceanfront compound south of Santa Barbara. The property offers 480 feet of beach frontage, an exclusive view of Santa Catalina Island, and has a total of 15,000 square feet of living space. It comes with a pavilion for entertaining, a 2-bedroom guest house, 9 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and 4 half bathrooms. Amenities include a 6-car parking garage, a lighted tennis court, a green house, a screening room, exercise room, and wine cellar. Nixon retired to the San Clemente estate following the disgraceful end to his turbulent presidency.
