This Santa Monica Canyon cottage has a wonderful, raw look about it, with its vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and contrasting white walls. Built in the 1920s, the open and airy cottage has Douglas fir floors and beautiful French doors. There are also high-end appliances and finishes, lest anyone forget this is Santa Monica.
The master bedroom shares the sky-high ceilings of the communal spaces, and a fireplace and French doors that open out to the backyard add to the room’s grandness.
The property is actually more like a little compound, with a converted garage and a guesthouse sharing the property with the three-bedroom main residence.
The guesthouse, with a bathroom and kitchenette, could be used as its name intends. The garage is set up with a loft and playroom.
