a 1912 beach cottage



This little vintage beach house was
built in 1912 from a set of blueprints
bought from Sears & Roebuck.  

The homeowners restored many aspects 
of this house,
including the hardwood floors,
wainscoting and batten board.  
It’s one of six homes from the 



with a few little french accents
thrown in the mix. 




The master bedroom provides
the homeowners with priceless views of 
the beach,
the pacific ocean 
and Catalina Island.





A basket full of pillows is always 
on hand to change things up a bit.


A guest room for the young ones.



The three guest rooms are
tucked under the eaves

for a cozy feeling. 





Great coastal inspired accents 
adorn the living room.










 Vintage black and white photos of 

Newport Beach are hung in a guest room.

  7. Hi neighbor! I'm just north in Huntington Beach. I love that cottage! My grandfather built a Sears home for my mother's family, in North Dakota many years ago. Thanks for the great photos, I'll have to find that house and sneak a peak. It looks like the peninsula, could take me a while, lol.
