Where I stayed
The first house we visited as originally built In the mid 1800's and is now an ecclectic mix of old and modern. It is for sale for $565,000 and a gorgeous home in the Santa Ana neighborhood, not far from the library. The home is filled with local antiques and art objects. Everything about it is interesting. The pool area and master bath are stunning. It boasts three living rooms, two indoor/outdoor areas at either end of the pool and one enclosed formal living room. The kitchen is open and large and there are three bedrooms. The house is built for entertaining and could easily accommodate 50 or more people.
A few blocks away we visited another home, also mid 1800's, this one had more of a traditional feel to it but lovely in its simplicity. This home was much smaller.
The third home, in the Santiago neighborhood and a good long walk was very modern and looked like an ad for Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel, not as grand as the first but with very nice touches and a lovely outdoor courtyard and pool. Tips also is for sale, $319,000.
