About our home

Our "Mad Men" home was built in the Eames-loving 60's but has been updated with all the amenities of modern living. It is 1700 square feet and 3 bedrooms, 2 baths (in the main house), a wet bar and a sunken living room with cork floors. It has a wonderful remodeled backyard with a water feature, a patch of synthetic grass for kids to play on, lava rock gas fireplace, sectional sofa to relax in during those beautiful Southern California days and nights. There is also a detached play room/bedroom that has a little bathroom that opens up to the back yard with tons of toys, books, tv and a comfy reading corner with soft pillows. Every room has cable or a DVD player and brand-new flat screen TVs.

Our neighborhood is 1.5 miles to the Playa del Rey beach and full of families with young children. There is a brand new playground 3 blocks away and a walking path that goes all along the bluff that overlooks the ocean that is a short 4 blocks away.

We are also close to all of the other beach cities — Marina del Rey, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Malibu, Etc. to the North and Manhattan Beach, Hermosa, etc. to the South.

There are also TONS of shopping and wonderful restaurants nearby and would be happy to give a thorough guide to the places we go — with and without children.

We also have an AMAZING nanny that's been with us for 3 years if childcare is needed (at an extra cost, of course:) and a housekeeper that comes every Monday.

And our Nissan Quest Minivan is available as well (and we could leave or car seats.)

Our lives have changed a little, and now we would love to find some swaps in Northern California! My husband is working in Palo Alto, and we'd love to enjoy it up there in a place bigger than his apartment!

Still totally open to tropical, warm, swimming pool vacations though:)
