                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: I'm a studio photographer living with my two sons. We are extremely fortunate to live in such an ideal location next to the beach. I spend a lot of my free time playing tennis, beach volleyball, and entertaining in my home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Monica:
                      When I first discovered Santa Canyon I knew that I could live here forever. It is a small and friendly community surrounded by greenery with hidden steps and various levels of the small canyon to explore. It is completely unlike any other area in Los Angeles. It feels very remote tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet Downtown L.A.and Hollywood are only 30 minutes away. Truly the best of both worlds!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      On certain days one can hear the sound of waves breaking as they roll up the canyon. Other unique benefits are the tropical parrots singing in my trees and as well as hawks soaring above. I love that we can walk or bike to great restaurants and pubs and Santa Monica has a fantastic bus system for those who don't have access to a car.
