On Sunday, November 11, four impressive architectural Pacific Palisades homes will be open for the public to tour, along with a free Holiday Boutique at Pali High featuring more than 40 vendors. The tour showcases a 7,000 square foot modern home completed this year, a Parisian French villa made to look like it’s been standing in France for 500 years, a sensational California Contemporary merging traditional and contemporary elements and boasting both ocean and canyon views, and an 8,500 square foot Mediterranean masterpiece with an elaborate art collection and stunning Walnut woodwork throughout the home. Proceeds benefit local charities awarded through the Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club (PPWC). Last year more than $100,000 raised through the Home Tour was granted to 32 deserving non-profits. Tickets are $50 if purchased prior to October 26, $60 after October 26, and can be purchased at theppwc.org, by mailing a check to PPWC, PO Box 292, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272, or on-site at the Holiday Boutique at Palisades High School. Children under 6 are not permitted on the Home Tour, but may accompany adults to the boutique. Home Tour hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Boutique hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
