What’s Hot: Living In A Landmark House Tour And Reception This Sunday:

The Santa Monica Conservancy presents “Living in a Landmark” – a special opportunity to visit some of Santa Monica’s most historic homes this Sunday, June 3.

This will show how landmarks – like all buildings – evolve and change to meet the needs of successive owners.

“People may be under the impression that landmarked buildings are to be kept frozen in time but in reality, they can be changed to meet the needs of successive owners,” says Ruthann Lehrer, tour coordinator for the Santa Monica Conservancy’s tour. “Tour goers will enjoy seeing the interiors of five outstanding Santa Monica landmarks, each reflecting the creativity and individuality of its current owners.”

The tour, from noon to 5 p.m. features five landmarks, each reflecting the creativity and individuality of the current owner: the adaptive reuse of an 1875 historic church as a residence; the renovation and expansion of a Craftsman airplane bungalow; a Craftsman home showcasing the owners’ special collections; the care and maintenance of Irving Gill’s Horatio West Court; and the expansion of a beautiful Craftsman home on Palisades Avenue.

Check-in 2525 Fifth Street or 514 Palisades Avenue from 11:45 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Tour goers will receive a brochure with a map at check-in, and drive or bicycle themselves to the homes, where docent-guided tours will be ongoing.

After the tour, there will be a reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. supporting the Conservancy’s educational programs at the Zimmers House on La Mesa Drive.

Admission: $45 for the tour only, $150 for reception only; $175 for both.
