Laguna Beach cottage description

Enjoy the Laguna Beach lifestyle at its best in this lovingly restored historic cottage. One of the first 300 cottages built in Laguna in 1915. It is warm and inviting and you will find yourself immediately relaxed and ready to enjoy everything Laguna Beach has to offer.

The cottage couldn't be more convenient to restaurants, shopping, art galleries and night life venues. It is all here and all within a few blocks. Should you decide to venture further, leave your car here and catch the free Trolley to town...arriving every 15 minutes a block away. (summer months only-see schedule) Downtown is less than a mile and totally walkable.

In the morning enjoy your breakfast in the sunny back yard garden listening to the local birds. In the afternoon enjoy the front porch in rocking chairs while sipping your favorite beverage while the sun sets, listening to your favorite music. Life doesn't get much better than this.

Our Cottage has three bedrooms (king, queen and double bed)and two full service baths with an additional outside shower (to speed things up a bit).

This is our personal beach house, not a 'beach rental' property so there are many personal touches you will feel while here. It is a cozy home and the perfect place to get away from it all for a short time.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Our house is 1-1/2 blocks from the Surf & Sand beach. We are within walking distance to Blue Bird Park where you can enjoy free summer outdoor concerts or your children can play on their amazing playset. Our beautiful beach is a sandy beach (not rocky) with lifeguards on duty during the summer months. Stroll along the beach or bring a beach chair down and watch the sunset. It is all yours to enjoy and appreciate.

                  The new sport of Paddleboarding is in full swing in Laguna Beach and lessons/equipment can be easily found.

                  We are in the center of 'The Hip District' (Historical and Interesting Places) contains over 40 shops, galleries, and restaurants to satisfy all shoppers. The downtown Village is less than a mile - certainly walkable or take the free shuttle during summer months. Shuttle and Bus stop is 1/2 block from the house.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: My husband and I have five children and two grandchildren. This is where we can all come together. We love to go to the beach and stay for hours catching up on our reading. We also love music and it is always on at home. Walking to town to the Saturday farmer's market or to dine or shop is always such a treat. Our kitchen and bathrooms were lovingly restored/updated in 2008 by my husband and myself who are home builders.

                  Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach:
                  We purchased this home in 2003 after seeing it once and making an offer that afternoon. It was warm and inviting and we knew right away it was for us. We consider ourselves blessed to have found the perfect mix of quiet local streets yet totally accessible to great restaurants, galleries and shopping. Most important, we wanted a home close to the beach as we go frequently. This home has it all.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We love our front porch for 'people watching' and sunset skies. Our back yard is delightful for breakfast; hearing local birds and enjoying the quiet sunshine. Visit our birdhouse collection or just kickback with a good book.
