Welcome to Home Tour
Dear Neighbors and Friends: Please join the Pacific Palisades Womanâ€™s Club on Sunday, November 12, 2017 to celebrate, enjoy and learn from the diverse ways we live in our community. The members of PPWC have been working for months to organize an inspiring and educational day at three special Pacific Palisades homes. These homes include one of the earliest and most prominent homes built in the Palisades, a mid-Century modern with whimsical updates and an AIA award winning home that incorporates green technology. The furnishings, gardens and outdoor entertaining spaces at each home are delightful and sure to spark ideas for your own home. And what is Southern California living without cars? Tesla will be offering test rides and the Auto Gallery will be showcasing Italian cars. Maybe you have room in your garage for a new car? We invite you to come and enjoy the day with us. Proceeds from this annual event support our community. Over the years, PPWC has donated over $1 million to support educational, recreational, beautification and community service projects in the Palisades. The funds donated are raised primarily from this joyful event, which has brought community members together each year for 32 years. Help us make a difference by starting your holiday gift shopping at the Boutique at Palisades Charter High School. Parking is complimentary at Pali High and you can pick up your Home Tour tickets at Will Call in front of Mercer Hall. A complimentary shuttle service will take you to and from each home on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Plan to come to the Boutique at 10 a.m. or return to Pali High for shopping and eating at one of our fantastic food trucks. Proceeds from the Boutique and Home Tour will be invested in the Palisades community through the PPWC grant process. We could not accomplish this event without the generous help of our sponsors, homeowners, patrons, volunteers and members. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to each of them. Please take your time to admire the results of the designersâ€™ hard work, the beautiful custom-designed floral arrangements, the cars on display, the musicians, the food and, above all, enjoy your neighbors. We are fortunate to live in this community, among people who share their time and assets to make this a better place. Join us in this celebration of community! Gratefully,
Catherine Ruddy President
Robin Weitz Vice-President and Home Tour Chairman
This year the Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club celebrates its 92nd Anniversary of fun, friendship and philanthropy.The PPWC is a non-profit organization that brings together energetic and socially-minded women in friendship to serve others and our community and to preserve the distinctive character of the Palisades. We are dedicated to making this a community-centered town where family and businesses thrive. Through the club’s diverse programming, philanthropic efforts and community outreach, the members make a difference, have fun, create new vibrant friendships, and learn a great deal while enjoying themselves and the company of fellow members. Over the past decade, the PPWC has distributed nearly $1 million to over 75 community organizations. Our charitable recipients include area nonprofits, public and private schools, our local fire stations, the elderly, heath-related causes, and various environmental organizations. The PPWC sponsors numerous annual community events which include the 90th Birthday Party, Annual Free Influenza Vaccination Clinic for Seniors, Halloween Window Painting, the Pacific Palisades Home Tour, Grant Giveaway Night and many other community programs. The PPWC Annual Holiday Home Tour and Boutique is not only a delight to all community attendees, but the most significant means of PPWC’s philanthropy. Our membership joins together to plan, produce and promote the event, including hosting and guiding guests through the homes on the day of the Tour. Local homeowners, designers, florists, merchants, artists, and musicians donate their services to enhance the homes’ decor and beauty. In addition to the important philanthropic ventures of the organization, the additional goal is to revitalize the clubhouse as a community treasure by renovating its facility located at 901 Haverford Avenue and to continue using the facility for educational, cultural and social programs for the community and its members. As a result of the hard work and foresight of the civic-minded founding members of the PPWC, we are the custodians of this historic clubhouse that most assuredly would be impossible to duplicate in today’s dollars. Your support is your vote to maintain this landmark treasure, support its members in their pursuit of the organizations’ philanthropic endeavors and to provide enriching programs for the club’s members and community. With over 120 members, the PPWC is a strong, committed group dedicated to serving our community and building the bonds that help it thrive. We invite women in the area to learn more about us at www.ThePPWC.org. 4

acific Palisades’ historic “Castle by the Sea” will open its doors to the Home Tour to share many of its lovingly restored rooms. The Beaux Arts-style palazzo, often wrongly thought to be the Getty Villa, was built in 1927 for Leon Kauffman and his wife, Clemence, by architect Kenneth MacDonald, Jr. It was furnished with Victorian furniture and custom Persian carpets running the length of the ballroom and hallway. Despite the fact that the style was then considered somewhat old-fashioned for Los Angeles, the magnificent home was featured in Architectural Digest in 1928. At that time, the home had an organ, a car-wash, topiary gardens and a funicular down to the beach, all of which are now gone. The exterior driveway wall is topped with four female forms inviting visitors to enter through the ornate gates. Kauffman was a wealthy wool merchant and the sculptural decorations on the exterior and interior incorporate rams’ heads to reflect that background. The current owners, who lost a similar home in Poland during WWII, knew the house was meant for them because their family crest also included sheep. The Kauffmans spent $1 million bringing in the finest old-world craftsmanship in creating a lavish home that includes a 67-foot tall grand entry hall with a spiral stairway, ornate balustrade and gold 13
bordered mosaic. The living room/ballroom boasts mahogany paneling on the floors and walls, imported from Thailand. The 35-foot high ceilings are handpainted. Surprisingly, the crystal chandeliers were from the historic Los Angeles furniture store, Barker Brothers. The current owner has lovingly located antiques that make the enormous room warm and inviting while keeping the sense that you will be joined momentarily by European nobility. A patio runs the length of the ballroom offering a chance to step through the arched doors to enjoy the ocean along with an iconic statue or sit at a table. The circular dining room looks over Pacific Coast Highway, which did not exist when the home was built. A fireplace cleverly hides fire damage the current owner found to the oak walls when the home was most recently purchased. The Venetian-domed ceiling has been restored to its original state. The kitchen and butlerâ€™s pantry have been renovated recently but blend in seamlessly with the rest of the historic home, with custom cabinets made in Mexico to match the rich carving on an antique found by the owner. A majestic hallway leads from the kitchen to an oak paneled library with a coffered ceiling. Upstairs, the hallway has an early form of a skylight. The bedrooms are ornately decorated with antiques that carry on the palatial theme. A round sitting room adjoins the master bedroom, offering an ocean view. The bathrooms have the original tile and fixtures and extra-long bathtubs. 15
After the deaths of the Kauffmans in the early 1930s, the home was vacant except for a caretaker for 20 years. It was then auctioned off for $71,000. By then, the construction of Pacific Coast Highway or the widening of Porto Marina had weakened the hillside. The house has recently been stabilized with 30 caissons reaching down to bedrock. More work is planned for the grounds. The home has been featured in numerous photo shoots and videos. Celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Heidi Klum, Angelina Jolie, Robert Downey, Jr., Rod Stewart and Robert Pattinson have been photographed here.

t the end of a cul-de-sac that long-time Palisadians have never heard of, sits a mid-century post and beam home that seems a little different than the rest. First, there’s an Eames
inspired play house on a side yard. And then, there’s the wall and garage that are wrapped in the commissioned work of a well-respected L.A. street artist. Something creative is going on here. The front gate opens onto a courtyard of drought resistant plants and stones that
lead to the glass-door entryway to the house. The first piece of art, Summer Love by Andy Davis hangs at the entryway across from a metal abstract sculpture. The front part of the house is one big open space . . . divided only by a fireplace wall. The space hosts a kitchen, den, living and dining area. And it’s here that you’ll find the home’s most talked about piece of art: The Pour by Hy Farber, a piece that defies gravity with its clever use of layer upon layer of plywood to form a constant stream of coffee that spills onto the base of the piece. The kitchen is clean and simple. The cabinetry is from one of the first LEED Certified companies in Italy. And the use of drawers as well as high cabinets makes this kitchen easy to use. The Caesarstone island comfortably seats four and was intentionally built a few 23
inches taller than standard islands to make it easier on the back. The oven will immediately catch your eye because of its unique look. It will win your heart when you hear that you can cook and carve Thanksgiving dinner in about an hour. Three knotted light pendants in maple line the length of the island. Like the entire house, the den is a mix of old and new. New shelves house flea market finds collected over the past 20 years. The couches are new, but are separated by a Charles Hollis Jones coffee table. A black and white art collection features three Thurston Hopkins prints. And black and white art from flea markets fits nicely right beside. The vintage pieces throughout the house add an undeniable charm and individuality as they pay homage to the era in which the house was built. Whimsy is a recurring theme and is expressed most prominently in the kids’ bedrooms. Wallpaper shouts out “fun” in both rooms. Color and patterns and art (some hung at a child’s height) adorn each space and while they share wallpapers, (but in different colors) they are different enough to reveal a lot about both personalities. Look closely in the “Jack-and-Jill” bathroom and you’ll find an elephant mosaic surrounding the tub. The master bath and suite are open and airy and both invite nature right in. A sitting wall, inspired by Charles Kratka’s LAX mosaic tunnels, was built right outside the bath tub window to add color to the mostly white bathroom. Modern 25
taupe glass sliding doors hide the homeowner’s closets and laundry facilities. A stone-floored steam shower is good for the feet and healing for the body. The minimally landscaped backyard features an amoebic shaped pool, two seating areas (one for lounging, the other for conversation) and a generous guest house . . . which is both a teen hangout as well as the owner’s office and work out area. Add a pool table and a trampoline and you can see why it’s the most popular place on the property. This is an artistic home that is both stylish and thoughtful with a number of green features. There are solar panels, the wood floors are manufactured maple, the insulation is denim, there’s radiant heating, LEED certified cabinetry and low VOC paint. In short, it’s a great place to live. It’s Palisades living . . . open, natural, simple, original, and yes, even whimsical.

his AIA award-winning home for residential design replaced a small cottage built in 1923 on a part of Uplifters Ranch. Today it stands as an eclectic contemporary, which forcefully
adds to the architectural showcase tradition of Rustic Canyon. Guests are greeted by a young Sycamore tree at the front gate, planted nine years ago in keeping with the trees of the canyon. The house has seven levels as an ode to the architectâ€™s Maine farmhouse upbringing. Yet high ceilings with floor to ceiling glass and clerestory windows allow an abundance of natural light, and direct connections to the yard and easterly hillside. The environs of Rustic Canyon had a lot to do with this design; the steep slope of the adjacent hill, the long, narrow, flat area at the front of the lot, the deep shaded tree cover and lack of sun at certain times of the day, and the requirement for privacy for a home that is raised up off the street. During construction, the propertyâ€™s grades had to be raised, lowered and engineered to accommodate the homeâ€™s many levels. From the main level, visitors view the backyard which houses a heritage oak tree and a ceramic column art piece designed by the 33
architect’s late sister, sculptor Connie Leslie. In addition, there is a saltwater swimming pool, hot tub, outdoor shower and vegetable garden. A baby grand piano is stationed in a music alcove off the living room. The living room television is hidden by a vertical grain Douglas fir panel on a stainless steel track system. Bold, colorful, exposed steel structures frame the view of the living room and dining room in an open floor plan. The home is furnished with eclectic art pieces and modern pieces including Saarinen tables and an orange-red leather banquette for casual dining in the kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a “dog station” complete with treats, water and toys. The glass windows and doors in the home are custom made because of the many original shapes and sizes that the design demands. Looking out over the pool, the architect designed a low ceilinged cozy office with cantilevered bookshelves for an award winning local news radio reporter. Off the dining room, a spiral staircase leads to the architect’s office and the family TV room which has as wallpaper the homeowners’ favorite historic collection of record covers. These areas overlook a sunken garden formed by concrete retaining walls repurposed from the original cottage foundation and filled with multi-textured succulents. The entry staircase in floating bamboo treads leads up to three different bedroom 35
levels. Adjacent to the stairs, the entire two-story north wall of the entry is built in “burnished” concrete blocks. The first level accommodates the laundry room, linen closets and son’s bedroom. The second level is a bridge to the master suite, and the third is the guest room (“love nest”) perched like a tree house high into the tree branches. This suite is secured by the original turquoise, board and batt redwood door from the original Uplifters Ranch cottage that stood on the site. Its balcony overlooks the pool, outdoor fireplace, and oak trees. The house is an open, exciting and dynamic environment with clerestory windows and skylights between levels, and displays comfortable spaces for indoor/ outdoor entertainment.

A Community Treasure TH E P PWC C LU B H O U S E
The Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club (PPWC) opened the clubhouse doors in 1951 and it has served the needs of the community for the past 66 years. The PPWC has also provided over one million dollars in Grant Awards to fifty-plus local non-profit, charitable or service organizations. As stewards of this community treasure, the members of PPWC are excited with the renovations of the building over the past couple of years. In 2014, the building was re-roofed and the bathrooms were upgraded and reconfigured and are ADA compliant. At the end of 2016, we finished the renovations of the Main Hall and lobby area, making both rooms more inviting, comfortable and functional to our members, renters and the community. By updating and modernizing these rooms, the Clubhouse will continue to be the gathering place of the community for decades to come. Currently the Clubhouse is “home” to more than 100 different community events or meetings, including our much-anticipated yearly 90th Birthday Party in celebration of our nonagenarians, a yearly flu clinic, tai chi, yoga and senior exercise classes plus other community services. Local community organizations, including our public schools, local clubs, meditation and self-help groups gather in our treasured building for their daily, monthly or yearly events and meetings. We average over 1,000 visitors weekly. The monies from our yearly Home Tour enable us to continue renovating our historic building so we can serve the community more successfully as well as fund our Grant Awards to local non-profit organizations. Thank you for supporting our Home Tour so we can continue our philanthropic services to the Pacific Palisades community. 58
