Property Description

Mills Act Home! Nestled in the center of the Marguerita Lane Historic District, ''Casita Encantada'' is one of sixteen magical Spanish Revival cottages built on small lots between 1927 and 1930. Marguerita Lane was conceived as an artist colony and was the first project designed by the architectural team of Burton and Denman Schutt. They would go on to design Hotel Bel-Air and many fine estates and commercial buildings in Beverly Hills, Bel-Air and later in Dallas, Texas. ''Casita Encantada'' is one of the first 8 homes constructed in 1927 with an additional bedroom suite added above the attached garage in 1978. The current owners have painstakingly added period appropriate cosmetic details which seamlessly blend the two, formerly disparate, sections of the house. Set as an L on the lot, one enters the property through arched wooden gates into an enchanting courtyard. The deep porch, set into the structure, acts as an outdoor room. The double paneled entry doors lead into a living room with a vaulted wood paneled ceiling that is dominated by a large truss running across the center of the room. Every room in the house also offers high wooden vaulted ceilings giving the home a sense of openness and volume. The living room detail also includes an arched book shelf, set into the wall, flanking a centered fireplace and a heavy beam, anchored by carved, curved corbels above the entrance to the dining room. The dining room opens into the kitchen at one end and the original first floor bedroom, which is currently used as a library/media room. A full bath with separate tub and shower and an office complete the main floor. The home has been sensitively updated with period revival details and materials. The bathrooms offer Catalina Revival style tile while the kitchen is sheathed in white subway tile and shaker cabinets, some of which are original. The small but very functional kitchen is equipped with a Fisher-Paykel refrigerator and stove, a Zephyr professional baffled hood and a compact 18 inch Bosch dishwasher. A brand new Samsung washer and dryer are located in the garage. Both the patio area in the front courtyard and the basket woven brick one in the small rear garden provide calming and restful outdoor spaces. The front, courtyard and rear gardens were professionally designed by Mark Bartos, installed and maintained since 2020.
