Relax and discover tranquility by settling into an original 1920's craftsman cabin constructed in the absolute heart of the historic Santa Monica's "Mountain Nest." Now known now as "Monte Nido," as taken from the Chumash Native American's language, this picturesque valley in coastal Los Angeles was occupied for thousands of years by the Native people before the the Spanish Government granted the entire Malibu area to Francisco Tapia in the early 19th century. The indigenous people of this region greatly appreciated the unique micro-climate, discreet location, year round fresh water ways, abundance of wild game, and most importantly a very close proximity to their other communities and an international trading networks just a very short walk or ride away on the sheltered pristine beaches of what has become an internationally renowned area of Malibu California. This enchanted cabin, brimming with charm as it enters the last decade of its centennial celebration, was once a nature retreat for many of Hollywood's golden area of stars. It was specifically placed in the most prime and coveted location of all of Monte Nido at that time where they could hunt wild game and fly fish the incredible Steelhead Trout in order to escape the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. The historical cabin boasts striking custom timber work, a beautiful kitchen with imported natural nosed granite slabs, and wonderfully cozy living area that boasts views of ancient white and live oak trees diffusing the light with a surreal wash from every window and vantage point. Immerse yourself in the soothing ambiance and calming sounds of the year-round creek that runs directly through the western boarder of the property. After nearly 100 years this jewel of the Malibu Mountains still remains a pinnacle example of the areas eclectic historical past, fittingly updated for those seeking a wonderfully preserved example of the ideological and transcendental landscape that attracted early residents of this exclusive niche location. It is modest and quaint, but it exemplifies the unbounded spirit and freedom that residents who make up this now very prestigious region of California live for and represent in the most tasteful and humble of embellishments. Enjoy easy access to countless miles of hiking, horse trails, and the renowned Backbone Trail, while being mere minutes away from the world famous Malibu Beaches, the Malibu Pier, exclusive shopping, five star restaurants; or, if you feel like heading the opposite direction, utilize the vibrant Calabasas Commons and the West San Fernando Valley area for a nearly infinite amount of potential for entertainment, shopping, and an eclectic multiculturalism that is expected in the diverse melting pot of one of the Pacific West Coasts most colorful regions.
