The Raven House: An Idyllic Laguna Beach Cottage

Mere feet from the sandy beach of iconic Fisherman’s Cove, with expansive ocean and coastline views, this 3-bedroom, 2-bath home was originally constructed in the ‘20s as a holiday place to enjoy local fishing. The exterior is clad in redwood siding and features a large brick patio with sit-down white-water ocean views as well as a private side yard, which can be accessed from the main living area and one of two ground – floor bedrooms. Inside, the main living area features a classic exposed beam ceiling and warmly greets occupants with a wood burning fi replace framed by floor-to-ceiling wood paneling and a mantle which was sourced from Edgar Allen Poe’s childhood home in Richmond Virginia (c.1810), which earns this home it’s moniker: Raven House.”

Original Knotty Pine “Laguna Paneling” and Douglas Fir flooring are carried throughout the home, which has a completely updated electrical system, newer roof, plumbing, and new central heating. An abundance of light enters the home through glass windows and doors which were assembled on site by carpenters and glaziers in the ‘20s and ‘30s. The kitchen houses a vintage steel Youngstown Kitchen sink and cabinet assembly that is original to the home, a walk-in pantry, and a dining nook with ocean views. The upstairs bedroom suite offers ocean views, a bathroom and can be accessed from inside the home or via a separate outside entrance.
