The Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club has revealed the first home to open its doors for the fundraising 2017 Home Tour and Boutique. It will be the Villa Leon, which is often mistaken from PCH for the Getty Villa—but may be more romantic, as high ground was broken for the Italianate mansion in 1926 as a promise by Austrian-born wool merchant Leon Kaufman that he would one day build his wife, Clemence, a castle by the sea.
Those joining the tour on Sunday, Nov. 12, will also have private access to at least two other homes, one described as “mid-century with a touch of whimsy,” the other an eclectic modern home.
