True, you don’t see many sleighs drawing up on our streets. But the grand Victorian houses that go with them are everywhere. Join us for a tour of some of LA’s most ornamental. (Hint: most of the public ones host vintage-inspired holiday events.)
The ultimate lock-and-go summer beach house is here. Set overlooking Malibu’s dramatic Point Dume, down the road from Zuma Beach, Cavalleri is a collection of 68 luxury Spanish Mission style condominiums on a ten-acre gated pastoral reserve.
The resort-like property includes a 52-foot swimming pool with spa, outdoor dining pavilion, yoga terrace and two North-South tennis courts. Acres of gardens embrace expansive lawns, walking trails, citrus groves and a native eucalyptus reserve. Beach retreat? Or year-round Malibu home? That’s a decision anyone would love to make.
Residences at Cavalleri, including two- and three-bedroom plans priced from $1,230,000, combine the low-key, unspoiled beauty of Malibu with the amenities of a luxurious resort and the ease of full-service condominium ownership. The location, set amid some of Southern California’s most iconic beaches, is minutes from world-class shopping and dining.
The classic Mission-inspired architecture of the homes gives way to contemporary interiors with open floor plans designed to let ocean light and breezes flow through. Top-of-the-line gourmet kitchens and luxurious spa-like bathrooms enhance the living experience. The grounds, by internationally renowned landscape designer Pamela Burton, create a transporting outdoor experience, from the glamorous pool environment to a dining area set by a fireplace beneath flowering trees. On the walking trails, notes of jasmine, lavender, and rosemary drift on the ocean breeze.
Premier urban residential marketing and sales firm The Mark Company, also a part of the Pacific Union family, will launch model previews for the development in March. Closings begin this spring, as 68 owners discover the Cavalleri Malibu lifestyle.
Just imagine: you could spend all December at the Music Center and never see the same dazzling event twice. From the Festival of Carols to LA’s biggest holiday celebration on Christmas Eve, it’s a host of reasons to be glad you’re an Angeleno.
And so you shall. Just head for Hogsmeade at Universal Studios, where the winding streets are decked to the nine and three-quarters (sorry) and Hogwarts Castle is ablaze with holiday lights and music. Oh, yes, and Christmas croaking.
