Cavalleri, a 68-unit luxury condominium in Malibu, is working to combat the continual drought in California by reintroducing native plants into its landscape. San Francisco-based real estate manager Pacific Eagle Holdings has partnered with internationally recognized landscape architect Pamela Burton to reimagine the surrounding 10 acres by paying homage to the site’s history, ecology and geography. By removing non-native plants and replacing them with local varieties, the site is able to use less water and resources to help them survive.
Plants that will be used at Cavalleri:
|Botanical Name||Common Name|
|Acer palmatum ‘Bloodgood’||Bloodgood Japanese Maple|
|Acer palmatum ‘Butterfly’||Butterfly Japanese Maple|
|Acer palmatum ‘Sango Kaku’||Coral Bark Maple|
|Acer palmatum ‘Seiryu’||Seiryu Japanese Maple|
|Arbutus x ‘Marina’||Arbutus Multi-Trunk|
|Citrus x limon ‘Eureka Variegated Pink’||Variegated Eureka Lemon|
|Citrus x limon ‘Improved Meyer’||Meyer Lemon|
|Cupressus sempervirens||Italian Cypress|
|Lagerstroemia x ‘Natchez’||Crape Myrtle Standard|
|Olea europaea ‘Swan Hill’ TM||Swan Hill Olive Multi-Trunk|
|Platanus racemosa||California Sycamore Multi-Trunk|
|Schinus molle||California Pepper Tree Multi-Trunk|
“Our goal is to create a series of gardens as outdoor rooms that are composed, inviting, and well-proportioned with interesting plant materials,” said Burton. Committed to sustainable landscape design, her plan includes species such as California Sycamore, Meyer Lemon, Crape Myrtle, Eureka Lemon, Coral Bark Maple and California Pepper Tree. The wellness-focused property will also include a 52-foot swimming pool, outdoor dining pavilion, yoga terrace, two tennis courts, dog parks and a meditation a for residents.
In addition to a refreshed exterior, the condos are being remodeled to become more open and airy, adding spa quality bathrooms and state-of-the-art kitchens. The project has a focus on sustainability, saving as much of the existing structure as possible. Two- and three-bedroom residences will range in size from 1,577 square feet to over 2,200 square feet. The first stage of the property’s renovation is scheduled to be completed in early 2017.
Developed by Pacific Eagle Holdings, Cavalleri will be comprised of 68 newly-renovated 2- and 3-bedroom condominiums in Malibu, CA. Located on a 10-acre gated reserve just a short ride from Zuma Beach, it will feature a reimagined landscape designed by Pamela Burton. The resort-like property will also include a 52-foot swimming pool, outdoor dining pavilion, yoga terrace, two tennis courts, dog parks, citrus groves and meditation area. The picturesque location will allow residents to take advantage of all Malibu has to offer, including optimal surf, hiking trails, cycling as well as shopping and dining destinations.
