    One of the most charming and functional small homes I've ever seen. You are fortunate in your selections, taste, and location.

    Ditto all the other comments! My son just graduated from college and moved from the east coast to Cardiff-by-Sea, CA. I'm going to implore him to save his money and buy a cottage that Mr. Collins has or will renovate, someday. Simply fabulous taste and attention to period detail. This 950 sq ft. "cutie" is all I'd ever want. Bravo to you and your team! Love your art collection as well.

      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.

      I SO LOVE the charm and detail of this lovely little cottage. The roof showing nicely. The windows with small panes, the wall and fence that mimic the windows and the porch 'rail' mimicing the windows and the little turret.... Really lvely, and the door with matching window, and the flower boxes. Lovely.
