It is a bit of a hike up stairs and sloped walk. If that sounds difficult for you, we are sorry.

We do not have a way to provide “Handicapped Access”

We have a parking exception for Outpost Circle and Outpost Drive Friday thru Sunday.

We are presenting a 1920’s Spanish style home owned by the late, legendary pioneer keyboardist and jazz musician, George Duke and his wife, Corine. It is a beautiful 3-story home that was upgraded years ago where they and their two sons lived for 36 years. George had his own extensive Class A studio in house where he wrote and produced hundreds of soundtracks, songs and recordings there. Corine entertained and produced in the full kitchen, dining room and bar that are full of dinner party pieces.

It is really a full home of antique, vintage and contemporary furnishings, with a wine cellar and wines, many dozen and hundreds of pieces of each- decorative accessories, costume jewelry, 8′ Euphonix sound board with Phantom and 3 more components, HHB Disc player/recorder, 11′ wood L-shaped sound desk.
