Stop and smell the citrus
In the urban jungle of Los Angeles, few neighbourhoods offer the peace and tranquility that Pacific Palisades does. And nestled at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains, wrapped in its own verdant garden, Passiflora House is a retreat within a retreat – a place to indulge by doing little. Relax by the outdoor fire pit or in the bubbling hot tub as the scents of the garden’s limes, lemons and passion fruits surround you. And should all that repose stir up an appetite, do visit the bright dine-in kitchen before heading down to the beach.
Your hosts are a couple who planted roots in Pacific Palisades after a number of years spent living outside of California. Though they travel a great deal – their Jack Russell Terrier in tow – Passiflora House is very much the place they call home.
##The great outdoors
It’s easy to leave life’s fast pace behind you at Passiflora House. Generously tall windows in the living room and master suite, and indoor greenery topping the many surfaces, bring the lush backyard garden indoors, while walnut-hued floors and industrial beams are a quiet nod to the cosmopolitan city beyond.
Outside, plenty of nooks for lounging await, including the patio table set beside a gurgling water fountain and bright bougainvillea blossoms. When you’re ready for further natural wonders, a walk on Will Rogers Beach or a hike in Topanga State Park are both just minutes away. And weary limbs will appreciate the soothing claret and mocha tones of the refined bedroom.
