Once upon a time in the vast Kingdom of La La Land, stood a cottage of unparalleled pedigree. Perched conveniently in the enchanting village of Larchmont, your daily life will be a stone’s throw away from all the delights that the village offers.
Upon approaching the house, you will immediately notice the oversized corner-lot with a field of lavender, Mexican sage and rosemary. As you approach the walkway to the rounded front door, you will pass under an archway of sweet Jasmine and good energy, welcoming you into your new fairytale life. Entering your new home, you will find an original stonework fireplace from famed artiste Earnest Batchelder framing the room. Original rounded windows infuse the room with effusive light and elegant simplicity, bathed in the warmth of oak floors.
As you pass into the next room, dining and cooking come to life in open and airy proportions. The modern kitchen has been updated to accommodate feasts of food and goblets of magical potions, in the beautiful surroundings that draw family and loved ones together. Enjoy a bite at the attached eat-in white Macaubas quartz countertop. For a more formal experience, the dining room can be seamlessly incorporated while conversation flows between both areas.
Abundant light flows into the sitting room which is an ideal place to read a book, savor a cup of tea or pen a letter to a far-off friend. French doors and Gypsy Carrara tiles lead to a charming alcove with tables and chairs to enjoy the elements of sunshine or moonshine, while you wax poetic of days gone by. Night jasmine will fill the air, as Japanese Maples stand guard over your private sanctuary.
Not to be overlooked, your new domicile includes not one, not two, but three rooms to rest your weary eyes at day’s end. The master dances with light and shadows - and is surely a place to unwind from the day. Attached is a newly completed bathroom, which has been ensconced in glistening marble and glass, with a tub that will lift your spirits and purify life’s imbalances. The second hall bathroom gleams with Carrara marble and Mutina stoneware tiles, featuring a claw-foot tub to soak or stand - as a deluge of water streams from above.
Lastly a newly expanded backyard completes the story with grassy knolls and trees of orange, lime, lemon and olive. Reap a harvest of strawberries, cucumbers, artichokes, and cooking herbs in your lush private garden. A step-up deck is built around a looming sapling that provides shade and love to those who nourish her. Seating areas are perfect for enjoying meats charred to perfection or evening soirees under the stars, as you enjoy the outdoor dining and living spaces for the ideal indoor-outdoor California lifestyle. Twinkle lights drop down from the sky, draping the space in a luminous glow and gracing the branches of your timbering topiary.
Do fairytales really come true you ask? At 601 N. Gower, your new lifestyle will materialize from the pages of an enchanting story-book. A charming home, Sunday strolls to nearby shops, boutiques and Larchmont Farmer's Market, and a space lovingly restored and modernized for the spoils of present-day living. All those you hold dear will surely congregate for a celebration that will inevitably lead to your own personal “Happily Ever After”.
