The Pacific Palisades Home Tour, one of the most highly anticipated annual community events that attracts approximately 1,000 visitors, is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 22 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The Home Tour, planned and orchestrated with care by the Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club (PPWC), has raised over $1 million, which the PPWC has donated to over 30 local charitable organizations.
This year’s Home Tour will feature four architecturally distinct and beautiful homes. Here is a sneak peek at this year’s exciting residences.
Villa Aurora was built in 1928 in the hills of Pacific Palisades. In those days, the Palisades was far from the City of Los Angeles and had no schools, shops or doctors. And at a time when gas was rationed, it was an impractical residence.
During the Nazi occupation of Germany, Marta and Lion Feuchtwanger had to flee for their lives, leaving behind their home and a vast library. Seeing the hills of the Palisades reminded the Feuchtwangers of the Tuscan countryside and in 1943 they purchased the then-dilapidated Villa for $9,000.
Today the Villa is a Historic Landmark where 22,000 volumes of Feuchtwanger’s substantial library remain on permanent loan.
This home presents a harmonious blend of the homeowners’ taste—clean and modern lines, with accents of bright colors, light, warmth and texture. This family home is magical in décor, with the epitome of gracious Southern California living, bringing the outdoors in.
This house has an amazing personality built on one-of-a-kind purchases lovingly collected over time. The owners have acquired an impressive art collection that will delight guests.
The architecture, art collection and furnishings are eclectic, including South African sculptures, Chinese children’s hats, East African textiles and well-known Modern Artists.
This traditional family home features majestic canyon views from nearly every room. The entry doors are grand in scale, and welcome you to the spacious foyer with infused natural light.
A focal point is the Ocean Series canvas by Carmel artist, Winston Swift Boyer, in the art niche.
