Don't settle for a vacation home when you can have a vacation experience. Enjoy.
My wife fell in love with this house the first time she saw it and I was sold as well. I refer to it as the Wahine House (Wahine - Hawaiian for wife). Through a collaborative effort we put the finishing touches on this unique home. We had many happy years in this house and look forward to vacationing here ourselves in the future. We know that you will enjoy your stay here as well.
Unique neighborhood, currently being considered by the City of Orange as a local historic district. Centrally located in the county of Orange, close to beaches, mountains, deserts, sporting venues, fine dining, shopping, and amusement parks including Disneyland which is less than 5 miles away.
Very private. Large back yard and side yards surrounded by tropical foliage. Neighborhood consists of other single level Eichler homes, so there are no second story windows looking down into the yard. The front of the house was used as a backdrop for neighborhood scene in the movie 'Speed Racer' starring John Goodman and Susan Sarandon. Several books and articles have been written about these unique homes.
