“The Art of Real Estate”

24903 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu

The name Sotheby’s has for many generations brought to mind the world of fine art.  Sotheby’s International Realty was founded in 1976 to represent fine real estate.

This newly constructed loft style office building at 24903 PCH in Malibu is in itself a work of art.  Ocean views abound from every window and  ocean view terrace.  The landscape behind the building offers mountain views and a lovely space to enjoy lunch or hold an outdoor office meeting. There is lots of flexible space for locals to have a great office close to home, near the beach and center of Malibu. Parking on site as well as  the PCH.

The Hidden House Destroyer

“A House can be Beautiful, Healthy and make you Happy”

Scott Harris

Chief Operating Officer / Building Construction Group

We just had a nourishing much needed rain storm in Malibu.  Rain, as with all gifts of nature has an upside and downside. Do we really need to take the “bad” with the “good”?   Scott Harris has discovered ways to help avoid the “bad” created by our wind driven rain and harvest the “good” for our environment.

Contrary to public belief, leaky roofs are not the usual primary source for water intrusion leading to mold.  Sideways wind driven rain is the biggest culprit in water damage which often leads to an invasion of mold. This ‘hidden” house destroyer does not enter through the roof but rather through the walls of a home where it may go undetected for years.

Water intrusion prevention brings to mind ugly gutters and downspouts which ruin the aesthetics of finely designed homes. But Scott has a method of insulating the walls of a home from water and providing appropriate water drainage while not only maintaining the beauty of the architecture but also helping the environment by collecting rain water.

Underground Water Collection Tank

Prevention is composed of a series of steps:

  1. Scott uses a single layer of “60 Minute” underlayment and an under layer of 3D “Raindrop” paper to help prevent water intrusion through the walls.

2. The use of the ornamental gutters and downspouts  hidden inside the building             diverting water into the underground tank.    The tank is put on the highest spot on a property to help with natural flow. The attached irrigation system waters most of the landscape.

3.  The  aesthetics of the home are not compromised because the materials used are copper, zinc and stainless steel reset into the roof line and presenting as decorative  cornices in the style of the home.

Ornamental  Leader Head

More information on water and mold prevention , as well as the various types of ornamental leader heads which look like decorative cornices may be found at Building Construction Group’s web site.

Neil Young Super Deluxe: Memoirs of Life and Cars”

IMG_2204

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.
