For the past 33 years, LAKE ARROWHEAD CHAMBER OF COMMERCE has sponsored the LAKE ARROWHEAD HOME TOUR --and the HOME TOUR has been the Chamber's primary fund raiser. This year the Home Tour will be two-fold: Friday night, before Saturday's tour, there will be a VIP event titled, "FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MOULIN ROUGE. " Saturday, September 20, we'll have our annual HOME TOUR.
1. SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 6:00pm: VIP night, "FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MOULIN ROUGE" will be held at a beautiful CEDAR RIDGE ESTATES home, which will NOT be on the HOME TOUR the following day. Since there are only 350 tickets, if you're thinking of attending this event, get yours NOW. Cost for the Friday night event is $125.00 each, which includes hors d'oeuvres, champagne, wine and yummy desserts. Members suggest dressing for the "mood." Since this is one of my favorite neighborhoods, I say, Go. Go. Go.
2. SEPTEMBER 20, 2008 9:00am - 5:00pm: The HOME TOUR...ahhh, I LOVE this day! There are four homes on tour, so let me tell you a little about each. There are ONLY 1,500 tickets! (No children under 12).
THE LAVINTHAL HOME can only be reached by boat (how sweet is that?). You'll be taking a shuttle boat from the dock near McDonald's at LAKE ARROWHEAD VILLAGE. Check your ticket to see if you're scheduled for morning or afternoon. The fabulous Lavinthal Homewas built in the 30's for the Hamilton Family, located behind the gates of Old Hamiltair; it was the home of the Hamilton daughters--who owned the land that now is known as Old Hamiltair and Point Hamiltair.
THE LALLAS LAKEFRONT, built in the 60's and had all those wonderful 60's home favorites (you know, the shag carpeting, ugly linoleum and cottage cheese ceilings) until the Lallas family fell in love with it in 2003 and transformed it. A MUST see!
PINE MOUNTAIN CAMP was built in the 40's and was then called "Camp Singing Arrow."Lucky Baldwin (founder of the Santa Anita Race Track) had originally owned the land before donating it to the Los Angles Turf Club, then it was transferred to the Girl Scouts for their camp. The 40 acres was purchased in 2004 by the Mr. & Mrs. Art Day and they have been upgrading the two original cabins since they bought it. It's absolutely what you think of when you think of 'the mountains.'
THE FRENCH NORMANDY HOUSE was designed and constructed by local constructor, Greg Imus and was completed in 2006. It is 4,500 sq ft and sits on a large parcel of land. Much of the furnishings have been purchased from Timberline, in Cedar Glen and County Furniture, in Blue jay. And if you've ever been in either of these shops, you'll know that this estate will be spectacular.
After your Home Tour, head to BURNT MILL BEACH CLUB for wine and cheese... and to rest your weary feet from all the walking you've just done!
Tickets for the HOME TOUR can be bought between now and September 19th for $35.00 each, or $40.00 on the day of the tour. Remember, there are ONLY 1,500 tickets. GET YOURS NOW!
