can you see me here?

The ad says “Live close to nature in a very serene 3 bedrm. 2 bath mobile home. Enjoy the ocean view from your front porch! Rare opportunity to live snuggled in the Santa Monica Mountains on a private road. New fridge and Ikea kitchen. Washer & dryer. Cactus garden, organic vegetable garden and ROOM FOR CHICKENS (emphasis mine). Your own storage shed and lots of open space. Woodstove, bumpy roads, lots of good hiking and beautiful sunsets. You would never know you are 25 minutes from Santa Monica or Hollywood.”

The price is, um, about $1000 a month more than my budget. Anyone want to live in Topanga Canyon with me?

  1. shit. This is tempting. Can Matt and I come be your personal chef, gardener and in general best friends for life-mates? Oh my God ….this could be some kind of dream come true??? ~ Chickens and eggs oh my!~

  2. Now you know I would – I would even come complete with the chickens! Make it happen – this would be pure heaven. Is it time to ask for a pay rise? :-)

  3. Man, oh, man. Find a way to make it so!

    Chickens! I want chickens. That place is so you. I lived in Topanga back in my cyclone days. Next to one of the Manson Girls. Well, she wasn’t a Manson girl at the time. Anyway…. The Canyon is so cool. Is it on the beach side or the Valley side.

    • Beach side, Mookie! The owner and I have exchanged emails but he hasn’t returned my call yet … I hope to view it Friday AM.

  5. That looks so cute! Hope it works out for you.
