This Classic Santa Monica home was built in 1939 as worker housing for Douglas Aircraft which was just down the street.
Douglas Aircraft was one of the big reasons why we won World War 2, churning out thousands of military aircraft.
Today, Douglas Aircraft is gone, replaced by restaurants and commercial buildings but this house remains, painstakingly restored to its original spender.
It has 2 bedrooms, a beautiful kitchen, hardwood / tile floors, one main bathroom plus a half bath, a laundry room, and a large backyard shaded by a huge stone pine tree.
There is a queen bed in the master and a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom. There is off street parking for 1 car.
The location is great. A number of restaurants are walking distance as well as Trader Joe’s Market. The beach is a 15 minute drive and West LA & UCLA are close by.
St. Johns Hospital, UCLA Medical Center, and Cedar Sinai are short drives. Freeway access to the rest of Los Angeles is close by.
Note: Basic electricity is provided. If you want to use the central A.C. you will have to transfer the electricity into your name.
Note: Due to Santa Monica's strict rent control laws, this house can only be rented on or very close to the date that it becomes vacant. Please check our calendar and see what the availability date is prior to booking.
We live driving distance from this house. We are there infrequently but available if maintenance is needed.
No smoking in house
Electricity allowance is $20/month. Usage in excess of that (air conditioning) must be paid with a credit card left on file.
Guests are responsible for putting the trash cans out on the street Sunday night and back again Monday afternoon.
I'm almost a native of Southern California having lived here since 1965. A retired builder who lives close by and takes good care of our properties. My wife Judy was formerly a manager at a large hotel in downtown Los Angeles. We work together to make sure our apartments are spotlessly clean and well maintained.
