About our home

Our home is a California Mission Style built in 1933 . It's situated in a historic neighborhood where no two homes are alike. We purchased it from the original owners in 1989 of whom we remain in touch with and have raised our family here. In 2008, we did a massive remodel adding a 2nd story though were careful in maintaining the integrity and quality of craftmanship of the era. The first floor has a formal living room w/baby grand piano, a formal dining room, large family TV room, state of the art kitchen, a wine cellar, indoor laundry room, 3 bedrooms (2 sets of twin beds, 1 queen size pull out) 2 full bathrooms and a powder room. The 2nd floor has a master suite, master bathroom with a separate jacuzzi tub/shower, a large office, outdoor deck with comfortable lounge chairs, fruit trees and a studio pilates reformer. There are hardwood floors throughout, a large covered deck/patio, a built in pool with jacuzzi, a gym, and 6-7 TVs and wireless internet throughout. The neighborhood is quiet, lined with large old trees and sidewalks. It's centrally located (freeway accessible) 5 minutes from Disneyland, 10 minutes to many of the infamous Orange County beaches (Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach), 50 minutes to Hollywood/Los Angeles and 1 hr to San Diego County.
