My husband and I will be in an area for a short amount of time. We will need to find something to rent while we are there though. Something like this would be perfect for just the two of us. http://www.BCoHousing.com

what is the square footage please

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Photos by Grey CrawfordHouzz at a GlanceWho lives here: Clark CollinsLocation: Laguna Beach, CaliforniaSize: 900 square feet (84 square meters); 2 bedrooms, 2 bathroomsYear built: 1946“My goal for the exterior was to keep it simple and quaint,” Collins says. He added details like plant pot shelves, latticework and a Dutch door.The city of Laguna Beach has identified homes and other structures with potential historic significance, but the register includes only structures built before 1942, so Collins’ house was slightly too young to be a candidate. However, he was able to research it himself to restore its original charm. His experience and advice regarding Laguna Beach can certainly help guide you no matter where you live.“In Laguna the best place to start researching a property is the city property records. Find out when the home was built, who the builder was, and check the ownership records through the city or your local title company,” he says. “Then check with the heritage committee or the local historical society.” Collins also found that First American Title Company had a thorough collection of old photographs for all parts of Orange County.
