I don't know where one would start to do the rehab on this poor old facade. Nice framing, forms, and textures here, Donna. #1495432

Sad that the tenants had to leave. A wonderful theme entry though, intersting shingles on the house! HTD! #10395316

Terrific! Evidently people built on the land but never owned it and the state gave the land to the state parks system after people were told to leave. Regardless..great capture Donna! #10395427

There are many of these old abandoned beach homes, in Crystal Cove. The community was placed on the National Register of Historic Places for its unique vernacular architecture in 1979, the same year the Irvine Company sold this land to the State of California.
