They say that strains of disco can still be heard on quiet nights in this 1973 Rancho Palos Verdes time capsule. Oh, if these (sometimes wood-paneled) walls could talk. A covered walkway runs along the back of the house, which was built for the lot with maximum party space in mind. The L-shaped residence crooks around a similarly shaped pool, with both fitting nicely on the roomy, nearly-16,000-square-foot property. Inside, there is, of course, a wetbar (where else is one supposed to concoct Harvey Wallbangers?), as well as a kitchen with a pass-through window, a wood-burning fireplace, a formal dining room, and a buffet counter. The 2,867-square-foot house contains four bedrooms, including a master suite with sliding doors that open onto the pool area. It's listed for $1.45 million.
