Santa Monica California
The owner of the Santa Monica Lumber Company built this medievalizing residence for himself in 1923. No doubt due to his access to quality building materials, no effort was spared in the detailing of the house, inside or out. Handcrafted doors, leaded and stained glass windows, and superb hardware all serve to carry out the Storybook theme. The unusually stout turret in this design encompasses not only the entry, but a small portion of the living room as well.
