Get your tickets now, and open the door to hope for people with cancer and their families this holiday season.

Here are some tidbits about the one-of-a-kind homes on this year’s tour:

A Tuscan Christmas

Come celebrate A Tuscan Christmas in this 4,800 square-foot home in the Morrison Highlands area of Agoura Hills.

Notable indoor features include the French Morice range, wine bar, and iron details. The grounds include a pool and side yard with an Italian rose and citrus garden. The limestone fountain can be seen through the dining room.

This young family’s holiday collection includes beloved items passed from mother to daughter, as well as new treasures for the children to grow up with.  The hand painted advent calendar has been a special part of the holidays since the owner’s childhood. The Tiffany Christmas china was passed down from the previous generation. Individual trees and ornaments fill the children’s bedrooms with youthful Christmas cheer.

Celebrating the Season

This gorgeous North Ranch home is the perfect place to celebrate the Season of Light – the house is fully powered by sunlight!

In 2008, the owners had a 24-panel array of 8 panels each installed on their land; it is thought to be one of the largest residential solar panel installations in the state.

The sprawling four-acre estate also features a swimming pool, spa, rose garden, wisteria arbor, and 54 queen palms.

Christmas Vacation

A visit to this impressive outdoor living space is like a destination vacation right here in Westlake Village.  Panoramic views, a sparkling infinity pool, and eight-foot waterfalls set the scene; while the 24-foot barbecue and extravagant cooking island ensure that you’ll never go hungry.

Television’s popular “Modern Marvels” series on the History Channel featured this outdoor living space on its “BBQ Tech” episode in 2005.

Guests can relax by the nine-foot high fireplace and enjoy the plasma television and outdoor sound system. The infinity pool, overlooking 180-degrees of Westlake Village’s natural beauty, features decorative jets with fiber optic lighting and waterfalls.

The Colours of Christmas

What do you get when you combine classic English Country style with festive holiday hues? The Colours of Christmas!

Perhaps the most dramatic feature on the tour of this 8,900 Country Club Estates home is the Zuber scene on the dining room wall. Founded in 1797 in France, the Zuber company engraves original paintings onto wooden blocks to make impressive wallpaper scenes. The scene in the dining room, called “El Dorado,” is from blocks manufactured in 1849. The French government has ruled the Zuber blocks national treasures, and Jacqueline Kennedy had a Zuber scene installed in the White House.

Brillig Manor

Brillig Manor, home to the owners for the past 38 years, is full of a local artist’s colorful and vivacious perspective, beginning with the large mosaic balls in the garden and continuing to the etched glass angels welcoming visitors at the front entrance.

Many “you have to see it to believe it” moments await, with a giant mosaic Monopoly board in the atrium, angels and mosaics of all shapes, colors, and sizes, and furniture painted by the owner.

When the magic of the holidays meets the wonder of Brillig Manor, the possibilities are endless…

Welcome to the Mystery.
