Grant Street

1315 Grant Street
Santa Monica,  CA 90405

The end of an era, the beginning of a new life.

The house on Grant Street was built in 1947.  It has been home to several of my family members, has been our family home on the west side of Los Angeles, a refuge, a retreat, a shelter for many of our friends.  It continues to be home to our California desert tortoise, Alice and several fruit trees.

Front Yard
Agaves and Succulents

Throughout my 30+ years living there, the Grant St. house has provided us with warmth, love, protection and comfort. It has seen new births, deaths, starts of new relationships, has been a place for nurturing creativity and has been a place where relationships with family and friends have been strengthened and forged

The home has been sold...and will hopefully be as warm, comforting and protective to its new owners.

We wish them well on this new journey.  

I wanted to share a few of the wonderful moments of our time at Grant St.  Enjoy!

These are just a few of the moments spent at Grant St.  The home also played host to our parent's 50th wedding anniversary and numerous other milestones along the way.

The collective energy of the house and its visitors is palpable.

Thank you to all those who participated.
