When radio buffs visit the home of radio pioneer Don Wallace Sr. at a park built in his honor, it will be a replica of his old, rambling ranch-style home rather than the original. By a 3-2 vote, the City Council decided that the original structure, on property to be developed at Armaga Spring and Highridge roads, is too fragile to be moved and must be destroyed, with the possible exception of a fireplace.

Tested : I like this deal because you score a free night on just a one-night stay; most hotels have a two- or three-night minimum with these offers. In an online check, I found a garden room available for two nights starting Nov. 15 at the $235 pre-tax rate — a price that drops to $117.50 per night with the free night. The first-floor room that I found opens out to the garden and includes a king-sized bed, log-burning fireplace and use of bathrobes. The inn is within walking distance of the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and high bluffs overlooking the Pacific.

A stately traditional home with Spanish Colonial elements and a historic pedigree is the centerpiece of this oak-shaded estate in the hills of San Marino. Designed by noted residential architect Roland E. Coate, the home was built in 1926 for Annie Wilson, daughter of pioneering Southern California businessman and politician Benjamin Wilson, for whom Mt. Wilson is named. The gently sloping 1-acre-plus property was once part of the vast holdings of George S. Patton, father of the famed U.S. general, according to real estate historian Tim Gregory.

Christmas not complete without film of a burning Yule log playing on your TV? The annual holiday tradition is back this year, but with a few modern variations. The annual Yule log film began in 1966 when New York station WPIX first aired a three-hour film of logs burning in a fireplace on Christmas Eve. Ratings were surprisingly good, so the next year the film was re-aired, and then re-aired again. "The Yule Log" airing became a WPIX tradition in New York, where many apartment dwellers had no fireplace of their own, but eventually ended in 1989.

The actor described the English-style house of nearly 7,000 square feet as having "an East Coast kind of flair. " "In the summer, it has ivy on the outside," he said. "We have fall at the house. You have to rake leaves. " Schneider raised his children on the 3-acre spread, which has a creek that leads to the area where "Dukes" (1979-85)

A golfer's personal paradise can be found at Porcupine Creek, a 249-acre estate in Rancho Mirage that features a Mediterranean-inspired villa, four casitas, four guesthouses and a private 19-hole golf course, with that extra hole available for playoff games. "It has its own driving range, clubhouse, lakes and sweeping panoramas of the mountains and valley floors," says Barbara Duskin of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie's Great Estates, in Beverly Hills. Gates open to a long, meandering drive past landscaped gardens and brooks to the front entrance, where a covered stone walkway leads to the house.
