Rustic and forest homes

Southern California is not all beach houses and ocean views, as our previously featured equestrian homes showed you. These next few homes showcase the charming and rustic side of Southern California properties that are on the market right now.

This charming residence was practically built for weekend getaways. When you’re tired of the city or the coast (does that happen?), you and your loved ones will be able to escape to this custom-built chalet. Some of its more appealing features include a large wooden deck and attached sun room with a spa, skylights, and a detached workshop.

This cottage is actually too cute for words, so you’re going to have to see more of it for yourself. In case you need more convincing, this blue gum eucalyptus-surrounded home is located in the historic artist community of Sarah Thurston Park. It was designed and built by Gregg Abel as well as many other artists and craftsmen. Think of this as the modern-day residence of the Seven Dwarfs (after Snow White had worked her magic on it).

This home might not be tucked into the woods on the side of a mountain or reminiscent of a Disney movie cottage, but it is full of rustic charm. The exposed wooden beams throughout and wood paneling in the executive office give it an Old World feel that you’ll be sure to love. That’s not to say that this property isn’t equipped with enough modern features that bring this classic home into 2015 — because it is. The spa in the master retreat, the home movie theater, and the home-automation system are just a few features any resident will be happy to see.
