2010-2011 Holiday Homes On Tour

New Year’s Celebration – Maxine & Dom Lupo, 23786 Moonglow Court

Maxine and Dom Lupo have opened their beautiful home which was completely destroyed in the 2003 Cedar Fire. Their wonderful dog, “Binky,” alerted them to the approaching flames; and they were able to escape the fire before the entire home burned to the ground. Original house plans were located, and the home was rebuilt exactly as it had been prior to the fire. Both Maxine and Dom are special people. Dom is a watercolor artist. He illustrated for many years for Golf Magazine and Golf Digest, and he also did the original paintings for entries of members to the “World Golf Hall of Fame.” Dom’s upstairs studio is a must to view. Maxine published two books including How to Master the Game of Golf.  As you step down into the great room, enjoy the fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and countryside. Their entire home highlights Dom’s paintings plus other handsome works of art woven in throughout their lovely, warm, comfortable, and creative home.
