Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Owner, John K. Heidt, grew up in California with a deep appreciation of the ocean having surfed since the age of 10 and sailing since the age of 16. John is a UCLA Alum, Father, Grandfather and has been a professional in real estate for the last 38 years. He is President of the Heidt Torres Co. which manages and develops commercial properties in the greater Los Angeles area. When Donna and John first discovered The Cottage they recognized the potential and beauty of the property immediately, despite the fact that at the time it was a wreck. John purchased the property on May 1, 2008 as a gift for his wife's 50th birthday. Extreme renovations to the tune of $1,500,000 began after extensive planning three years later and were completed in 2014.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Park, Santa Monica, CA, USA:
Santa Monica offers a unique active beach lifestyle in an atmosphere of trendy retail shops and great restaurants. The property provides the same type of atmosphere that inspired the Beach Boys to sing in the 1960s. The Cottage building permit was issued in 1898. Representative of massed-plan vernacular cottages with hipped roofs, this building type and style lined Ocean Avenue at the turn of the Century. Today, it is the only surviving single-family home of its type along Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica and was designated as Historic Landmark #74 by the City of Santa Monica.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Location Location Location! The Cottage has the unique characteristic of being the only one of its kind in Santa Monica! It is close to all Santa Monica has to offer plus you will enjoy the on-site Jacuzzi and sauna. Privacy & Flexibility: 2 car parking in the rear of property. You can walk, bike or drive conveniently throughout Santa Monica.
