After the matinee my friends and I gave the Sunset which, for a while, went through a rough patch with its cuisine.  We all feasted on hamburgers and fries with a Hess Cabernet while enjoying the view from the private upstairs dining room.  Happy to report the food was great!

Malibu Aritists Series

Neil Young Super Deluxe: Memoirs of Life and Cars”


This past Monday , November 3rd , I attended the opening of “Super Deluxe” at the Robert Berman Gallery in Bergamot Station Arts Center.  The gallery was crowded with Neil Young fans who came to view the multi-talented musician’s prints and water colors of cars . Young has now added “author” to his vast resume of talents with the recent release of his book “Super Deluxe: Memoirs of Life and Cars”.

I enjoyed viewing some of Young’s car collection on display in the parking lot , as well as the water colors and prints of his beloved cars. The only regret I have was not summoning up the courage to take a selfie with the brilliant musician and true Renaissance man . The exhibit runs through November 29th and gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 11-6.



Neil Yong the Canadian singer-songwriter has recorded an album live in the studio with a 92-piece orchestra and choir.  The deluxe edition offers a bonus disc including a solo version of “Storytone” .

Malibu From Mountains to Ocean

“Once in a lifetime luxury homes”

Mendenhall Estate


Mendenhall Estate

One day a young couple from the westside of Los Angeles decided to purchase some land outside the city where they would build a home for their growing family. The first lot they saw was (after looking at many others) the only one with which they fell in love!

Today that large barren parcel surrounded by the majestic Santa Monica Mountains is home to the lushly landscaped and environmentally friendly Mendenhall Estate.  The appx. 16 acre parcel has unprecedented flat acreage offering room for horses and even a helipad.  The landscape is watered with well water and solar panels provide much of the electricity.  The house is appx. 12,000 square feet with 8 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms

Being shown to qualified buyers with 24 hours notice.





Two years ago Marisol Malibu opened for business, offering for sale in its first phase, 13 perfectly finished one-acre oceanfront, bluff top Malibu lots.   Presently only 4 oceanfront lots, and one luxurious home under construction are left in Phase 1.

“Time is running out  to purchase a premium parcel on which to build a Malibu Beach house” says developer Richard Morris. The development  which is exempt from Coastal Permits and review by the California Coastal Commission, also offers a “turnkey”  Home Building Program.  A Doug Burdge, designed 13,000 square foot modern home is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2015. Also available in Phase 2 , are three super 2 acre parcels , elevated above the ocean front lots.

Mountain or Ocean these extraordinary properties are rare opportunities to own one of the finest estates in the most beautiful of locations.
