About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, 6 beds (Sleeps 12)

Plan the perfect family reunion or getaway in this one-of-a-kind 2,700 sq ft. historic home. Built in 1927 by the famous Scripps family in the unique "storybook" style, the home has been remodeled with the latest features to enhance its old world charm. This special "castle" features an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, 5 separate bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and loads of outdoor patio space, providing the ideal mix for both quiet relaxing and fun social time.
