I'll kick off this series with 636 Adelaide Drive in Santa Monica
I want this house so much that I visit the site regularly just to peek at it and drool. What is special about it other than it is laid out beautifully in the main residence and has a guest house plus a beautiful pool area. The ad calls it the quintessential little "big house'. It is only a few blocks from the Pacific and was once owned by Jennifer Jones. This was the home where she lived while making one of my favorite movies: The Portrait of Jennie:
Now I would have to go to the Norton Simon people to find the original portrait and money being no object buy it, but can you imagine walking into the front door of that house and seeing Jennifer Jones as Jennie on the entrance wall.
Just to bring things down to earth, it has the perfect size pool construction for me to lap swim nude every morning.
