This 1951 Spanish style cottage was renovated in the early 2000s but maintains a great updated, original look. Wood floors, exposed beams, curved doorways, and vintage-looking doors maintain the great character of this cottage that features great indoor and outdoor space.
what street in Corona del Mar Village has the widest right of way?
it is not the 80 foot right of way of East Coast Highway.
This 1939 cottage is a great example of retaining an original look from the street and interesting interior details like exposed beams while expanding to address modern needs (open floor plan, larger closets, ensuite bathrooms, etc) and make for a great living experience. With the recent amendment to the city’s Cottage Preservation Code, more cottage owners should take advantage of the opportunity to improve the livability of their space and ensure the long-term viability of their home.

Corona Del Mar’s oldest restaurant, known today as Five Crowns was built in 1936 by Matilda “Tillie” Lemon MacCulloch. An American wife of a wealthy Scotsman, she lived in England but had grown up visiting Southern California as a child. She modeled it after Ye Olde Bell, an inn at Hurley-on-Thames, 35 miles west of London, England and called it the Hurley Bell. Local architect Shelby Coon used photographs of the inn to design it. Originally planned to be an inn, the MacCullochs ended up making it their home.
