The Rose House is perhaps the quintessential Catalina cottage. It is just two short blocks from the beach and restaurants, its architecture is classic Catalina Craftsman and it even has past celebrity ownership. The cottage is a turnkey property that comes fully furnished with a conditional use permit for vacation rental. So just bring your bathing suit and toothbrush!
Upon entering this unique 1-bedroom 1-bath cottage, you are greeted by a very inviting and roomy living room. It is full of light from its two large skylights (operable), numerous recessed & track lights and vaulted white ceiling. There is also an abundance of handcrafted stained glass windows with a distinct rose theme which sets it apart from all the other cottages - hence the name “The Rose House”. The fireplace (gas) has a uniquely crafted recessed mantle which incorporates built-in bookshelves and antique carved panels. There are two built-in daybeds (with Posturepedic mattresses)/sofas which provide additional sleeping accommodations and ample seating. The doors that access the TV, storage, closet and attic are all concealed into the wall.
The bedroom is well-appointed with a built-in dresser, recessed lighting, ceiling fan and French bi-fold doors opening out to a very spacious covered patio. The patio can also be accessed by way of the kitchen, so no need to disturb light sleepers. The curtains for the French doors are lined with blackout material.
The kitchen has custom made cabinets with granite countertops. It also has a vaulted ceiling with an elongated skylight (operable) and an abundance of recessed and back lighting. The skylight has a Roman shade below it to regulate the sunlight.
The bath is accented with wainscoting and a tiled floor and shower with a frameless glass enclosure. There is an extra vanity outside of the bathroom that could easily be converted into a laundry area.
The covered patio has Catalina style tile flooring and built-in seating that makes it the place you want to be, regardless of the weather, for entertaining or barbecuing. When the French doors are open, it brings everyone in the house and patio together.
Essentially all the plumbing (copper) and electrical has been upgraded with permits. It has also been freshly painted inside and out. If needed, the house is cooled with a high efficiency split AC and ceiling fans. It has both gas and electric heat. To enjoy and explore all that the island has to offer, the cottage comes with a VERY low mileage Porter Auto mini truck that is approved by the C.I.C. for travel into the island’s interior. Please call for an appointment to view this truly unique and exceptional property. Offered at $690,000.00
