About: My late wife, Jerrolyn, designed and developed this magical property over the last 37 years. With a degree in architecture from Harvard, she always designed award winning homes and offices. I came to California on vacation from my law practice ten years ago and met Jerrolyn. The rest is history. As an artist, sculptor, construction & finish carpenter - to name a few of my areas of interest - I joined Jerrolyn in the development and design of Casa Portofino. I look forward to sharing our creation with you.
Why Fernwood, Topanga, CA, USA:
Casa Portofino is perfectly situated on the seaward side of the Santa Monica Mountain Range and surrounded by the Topanga State Park which is filled with many miles of hiking and biking trails. The environment is remote, think Big Bear, but the property is located only 20 minutes from Malibu, Santa Monica and the San Fernando Valley and only 10 minutes from the Pacific ocean. I can think of no place I would rather be.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A timeless place to seek refuge from the world.
