It's 100 degrees in New York City today and my heart is longing not for the balmy breezes of Southampton but rather a certain private water garden in the fancy La Habra Heights neighborhood of LA. This tropical paradise overlooking Catalina Island and just a short distance from Disneyland would surely cool the temperature of any hot blooded New Yorker! Take a plunge via the secret tunnel water slide then meet me for a mai tai (or two!) at the six seat swim-up grotto bar just under the cascading falls-- my treat! Imagine yourself as a self proclaimed King Neptune reigning over your own "sea" for a mere 7,800,000 clams! Oh! Did I mention this aquatic wonderland also comes with a 9,000 square foot house complete with casino (!) theatre, and wine cave?! Details! Details! To arrange a private tour, contact Orange County's #1 Agent- the affable Sean Stanfield of First Team Real Estate.
