The beautiful Terranea in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., has unveiled new-look ocean golf villas, created by top interior designers Christine M. Stahlberg and Barclay Butera. Stahlberg’s showcase villa captures the rich heritage of the local culture while infusing it with a stylish and contemporary southern California design. Fully furnished, the beach home is on the market priced at $1,945,000. The new-look villa comes hot on the heels of another ocean golf villa, masterfully crafted by Los Angeles designer Barclay Butera. Terranea Real Estate’s Director of Sales and Marketing Terry Niemann told me on a recent tour only five golf-front properties remain for sale. terranearealestate.com
