The Escalante Family's estate blends contemporary styling with a Spanish look for a home that's anything but ordinary.
The Peachland Estates home of John and Shelly Whelchel is generously sized, situated on about an acre. With that much space came opportunity in abundance - and bugs.
Shelly Whelchel's "she shed" serves as a feminine escape without leaving home - no phones allowed.
When Lisa and Robert Younkin first moved into their West Hills community home, a goal was set. "We wanted a house that exuded warmth - but still had clean lines and a very neutral palette."
A clean aesthetic and the world's best materials make for a refined al fresco experience.
From all dirt to all done, this Valencia yard shows off expert craftsmanship and high-end materials.
This home is bursting with elements we love - luscious greenery, exotic landscape design, patio perfection and more.
Rich woods, dramatic lighting, heavy fabrics and nods to glamorous hotels band together to create a home in Valencia that is entirely New York chic.
Golf-course living in Santa Clarita means heritage oaks, mountain views and every excuse for al fresco dining.
The tract house that Tim and Cindy Dadik call home has the look and feel of a custom home thanks to a recent floor-to-ceiling remodel. "The only thing we kept from our previous 11 years here was the pool table - and even that got a navy-blue fabric upgrade," reflects Cindy. "We wanted an open floor plan that was airy and bright."
Simplicity can be beautiful. That's the thought behind this Santa Clarita yard, filled with simple lines, organic elements and plenty of space to entertain.
Modern design is softened with organic additions and delicate textures.
A mis-managed previous remodel is ground for growth and opportunity in this unique master bedroom.
So many Santa Claritians can relate: What's the point of a sitting room, anyway? Says homeowner Shelly Whelchel, "Our sitting room ended up being a place we put our extra furniture that didn't really fit anywhere else. It wasn't special, it wasn't used often. It ended up just being a lot of wasted space."
Located right outside the Whelchel upstairs master bedroom and bathroom lies a grand master balcony. "It's a surprising amount of space - definitely enough to really take advantage of and make it feel like its own distinct room," explains homeowner Shelly Whelchel.
Interior designer and Owner of Clear Images Stephanie Laney has designed some of So Cal's finest homes over the last two decades, but this Woodlands retreat in Valencia is especially notable - because she's designed it twice. "My client has a beautiful home that we did the first time about 15 years ago," says Laney. "We decided it was time for a facelift. Rather than making big changes, we selected a transitional style to update the space. Though the kitchen and family room were the focus of the remodel, we stuck with what we already did for continuity while updating elements to better fit with their style today."
Gail and Marvin Smith have called their 4,900+ square-foot estate in Newhall "home" for over a remarkable-by-SCV-standards 35 years. In comparison to how old most of the pieces inside the formal French house are, though, that's just a drop in the bucket of life.
This may be our most wow'ing holiday home feature yet!
On Saturday, September 22, Preston and Nicole Geeting presented the perfect late summer evening soiree for their gathering of guests in celebration of their Stevenson Ranch home's first hillside vineyard harvest. Nine varietals - four of white, plus five of red that are necessary to craft a French Bordeaux - bore their first fruits, a symbol of the loving labor invested in the outdoor space.
The Santa Clarita home of John and Michelle "Shelly" Whelchel was bought "as is," which, a decade later, Shelly only partially jokes, "is never a good idea." "It was a struggle to get everything going. This was a really misunderstood home, but we saw an opportunity to make it beautiful." Upgrades went slow, thanks to unforeseen expenses hiding behind the buttoned-up exterior.
