Santa Monica house description

This is one cool crib.

The location is north of Montana, north of San Vicente, and on the north side of the street on Adelaide Drive - widely considered to be one of the most desirable streets in the city of Los Angeles/Santa Monica. (some would say THE most desirable. ) A tear-down on this street sold recently for $7.6 million. That's right - a tear-down. Another home sold in the summer of 2011 just shy of $12,000,000.

The street in itself is considered an attraction.

The Santa Monica Stairs are on this street. (If you like a challenging set of stairs to run up and down for your workout - then this location will be your nirvana. There are two sets of stairs in all. Runners do loops.)

You can see the ocean from the front door to the guest quarters or from the guesthouse deck, and a solid view of the Santa Monica Canyon from the bedroom or living room.

A lot of light! Bright and sunny.

Nespresso machine with a variety of cartridges. Complete with espresso cups and saucers.

A library of Blu-Ray and DVD movies.

iTunes based 'jukebox' with 17,000 songs plays thru an NAD receiver and Spendor S3/5se loudspeakers.

The kitchen is small-ish, but complete; 4 burner gas stove and an oven. Dishwasher. Garbage disposal. Microwave. Blender. Coffee maker. Nespresso expresso machine. Refrigerator. And cookware, wine glasses, champagne glasses and champagne bucket.

Home was built in 1922-1923. The guest house was added on in the '80's. The guest house occupies the site of the Reyes ranch house, which was believed to be the first building in Santa Monica.

Guest parking is in the driveway. And there is usually street parking.

Adelaide Drive has been home to Charles Laughton, Jean Simmons, Jeff Bridges, composer Ferde GRofe, writer Christopher Isherwood and artist Dan Bachardy. Nutter Randy Quaid and wife Evi once lived in the main house.

Adelaide Drive it is quickly getting a reputation for being 'writer's row' - the creator of the Simpsons - Matt Groening just moved in, writer of Quiz Show and Donnie Brasco - Paul Attanasio lives in a landmark home. Alvin Sargent, writer of Paper Moon, Ordinary People and many other also calls Adelaide home. Also Dale Launer, writer of Ruthless People, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and My Cousin Vinny lives on this street.

There are architectural landmark homes on this street. And many architectural landmark homes in the neighborhood.

World renowned contemporary architect Frank Gehry (Bilbao, etc.) chose Adelaide Drive to build his own personal dream house. It is under construction now.

In the neighborhood there are number of homes by mid-century architectual icons - Neutra, Saarinen, Lloyd Wright, Harwell Harris...all within walking distance, including a rare home designed by Oscar (Brasilia) Niemeyer. Also iwithin walking distance is the famous Eames Case Study House.

Bus Stop nearby - 100 yards away (7th and San Vicente) from The Big Blue Bus. Check out the routes on their website if you want - it goes all over Santa Monica, and goes into L.A.

The Santa Monica Bluffs are close (walk toward ocean on Adelaide. 15 minute walk (1/2 mile).

Santa Monica Pier. 1.9 miles.

Santa Monica Place/Promenade. Shops, restaurants, three multiple screen movie theaters. DIRECTIONS. 1.4 mile walk. Walk down Adelaide toward Ocean, left on 4th Street, walk 1 mile to Wilshire Blvd. Turn right, walk 1 block and the Santa Monica Promenade starts on the left.

Montana Ave. Restaurants, shops, supermarket, baker, Aero movie theater (American Cinematheque - arthouse cinema, they often have people who wrote, or directed or starred in the movies show up for Q&A).

All short hops on the bus. Or walk and take the bus home.

Great restaurants abound - ** Michelin starred Melisse is a 5 minute drive. So is Rustic Canyon. Giorgio di Baldi is a 2 minute drive. So is The Hungry Cat. Menchies Yogurt, Envy Spa, Pioneer Baker, Pavilion Supermarket, Starbucks are all within walking distance.

Keywords: It is a 3 room (bedroom, living room, bathroom) guest house with a spacious, 270 square foot deck. Separated from the main house by a breezeway, it has it's own entrance and is located above the garage. I've been told this is referred to as 'a carriage house'.
