“This is the estate of an incredibly interesting couple – both were incredibly dynamic individuals! Leonard Wines, hereafter referred to as the Mister -was a career University of Southern California figure who began his USC career as Coordinator of Communications and then ultimately Director of Pubic Reltations. He took an early retirement in the eighties and dived right into the world of computers…becoming a product manager with Data Desk International and a faculty member with the annual San Francisco Macworld Exposition. His Missus – Clara Vines was an equally dynamic individual! Clara spent the 1950s working the with State Department serving through the Middle East and Asia before marrying her lifetime partner and raising two sons. Clara loved the arts and being an artist at heart – her greatest love was working with her hands creating many wonderful pieces of pottery, sculpture, jewelry, textiles, and more! The couple loved music and acquired a large collection of jazz records and literally every room on the property was wired for sound. Their property features a large garden area filled with plants and it must have been quite the retreat in the past!
