White Point Home Tour & Reception 2017
On Sunday, September 10, 2017, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., the annual White Point Home Tour will take place. Palos Verdes homes owners have an excellent opportunity to visit six unique and colorful homes which have a range of architectural, landscaping and design styles.
Abalone Cove Ocean View Estate is a 6,600 square foot home situated on the bluffs in Rancho Palos Verdes. The house has an Italianate style, with a winding staircase, art studio and spacious living room, kitchen and dining rooms. The master suite looks out on the view of Portuguese Bend Point and Catalina Island, as does the infinity pool in the backyard )pictured above). The owner is a talented artist, and her artwork is in evidence throughout this beautiful home from the faux wall treatments to paintings and sculptures.
1930’s Charmer is located just around the corner from beautiful Averill Park, and is the perfect marriage of original detail with modern furniture and artwork. The backyard even has its own putting green.
A Labor of Love in the Palisades was once a square box of a house with a dirt backyard that now has morphed into a stunning home full of intricate woodworking and an array of terraced gardens. There is also a secret closet hidden inside the bookshelves.
Mid-Century Pool Home was built in the International Style. This two story Vista del Oro home features huge walls of glass and high transom that bring tremendous light and volume to the home. You can move effortlessly through the Great Room – blending living, dining, and family room – all looking out onto the front yard walled garden featuring a stone patio and sparkling pool.
Indoor Outdoor Living is an oceanfront home boasting an open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, and Carrera marble bathrooms. The front yard features an A to Z (artichoke to zucchini) vegetable garden which is harvested and used in the gourmet kitchen and enjoyed on the back patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island – a true entertainer’s delight.
Artist Home & Studio is full of original art from top to bottom including paintings and ceramics made by its talented owners and many local artists. At the top of the spiral staircase is an artist’s perch where you’ll be inspired by nearly panoramic views from downtown Los Angeles to the mountains, the Port of L.A. and the breakwater in the distance. The backyard European-style plaza features terrazzo tile, built in barbecue island, and an artist studio.
Registration for the event begins at 11:00 a.m., and you will begin your day with a self guided tour from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. which will be followed by a reception and silent auction from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Brouwerij West in San Pedro. The reception will begin with wine and refreshments and musical entertainment. Silent auction will include items such as art pieces, jewelry, vacation homes, and local excursions. The Brouwerij West is located at 110 E. 22nd Street, San Pedro. All proceeds from the event benefit the White Point Nature Preserve restoration activities by the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy.
