The first thing you will notice as you walk in the door is the color, warmth and personality that exudes from our home. This home is flooded with natural light from the oversized windows throughout and the sliding glass door that opens onto the expansive deck and the gorgeously landscaped succulent and bamboo garden out back.
Our home revolves around the kitchen, and it is no surprise that it is at the center of our home. If you love to cook, this is the house for you! Fully equipped with prep space to spare, there’s room for more than one cook in this kitchen. A couple of highlights: Cuisinart food processor, Kitchen Aid stand and hand mixer, immersion blender, Le Creuset dutch oven, pots, pans, baking needs, professional knives and more. There is a toaster, microwave, 5 burner gas stove, convection oven, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher. Coffee three ways with a Keurig, French Press and Bialetti stove-top espresso maker. Don’t know what to make? Check out our extensive collection of cookbooks featuring cuisines from around the world.
Dinner is served in the formal dining room right off the kitchen. Gather around the beautiful reclaimed wood dining table (salvaged and built from old Indonesian church pews), with two long, sturdy benches and additional available seating.
The master suite is set apart from the other bedrooms at the back of the house and is completely private. A luxurious queen Casper mattress (latex and memory foam), will help you to drift off to blissful sleep. Relax in a bubble bath in the soaking tub, or enjoy the large walk-in shower.
The second bedroom is the children's room, and is set up with twin beds. There are lots of toys and children's books for the kids to enjoy. We also have a pack-n-play available for use if you are bringing a little one. Hanging space or empty drawers can be arranged, just inquire.
The third bedroom has a queen bed. This bedroom is currently used as an office where there are two desk work spaces and a wireless printer available for use. You will have access to the super fast wireless internet, accessible in and out of the house.
The second bath is between these two bedrooms and is bright and cheery and has a large lovely walk-in shower. Linens are included for all beds and guest towels for all bathrooms. We also have designated beach towels--as we are just a short drive from Santa Monica and all the incredible area beaches!
There are plenty of places to gather or lounge inside. The front room features a comfortable couch, leather high-back chair and ottoman and a stunning carved south-Asian daybed with a rainbow of fluffy pillows to sink into (seriously great place for a nap!). A bookshelf full of books will keep you occupied (an eclectic collection for adults and some young adult offerings, a shelf in the kids' room has all of our children’s books).
The family room is equipped with a 47” TV, Apple TV with access to Netflix and other show channels. Get cozy on the large couch, turn on the Dolby Pro-Logic 5.1 surround sound and immerse yourself in the show. This is also a great room for kids to play as it has cushiony cork flooring. Access to the backyard is through the sliding glass door in this room.
The color and creativity of the inside is matched only by our secret garden oasis out back. This yard is really something special, and extends the living space of the house. There are two rocking chairs, an outdoor dining set for 6, and several other chairs and benches for lounging. There is a gas BBQ grill for summertime cooking. We also have a children's water table and kiddie pool you can set up, to stay cool in the summer sun! Just let us know what your needs are!
The home has a smart and easy-to-use Alarm system and there is central air and heating, though we prefer to open up the windows and get a lovely cross breeze in. You will also have access to a washer and dryer right off the kitchen.
A note to those traveling with children:
Our home makes it easy! We have a booster/high chair and all the baby eating gear you could possibly want. If you need it, we have other baby gear and are happy to help out with your gear needs if we can, as we know just how hard it is to travel with kids and all their stuff! Please just let us know what your needs are and we can make things available.
Welcome to our home! We hope you enjoy your time in Los Angeles!
