Nautical Story Book House
The house is historic, having been built from the teak wood decks of the USS Los Angeles. The Los Angeles CA 135 was a US Navy heavy cruiser that was constructed during WWII. It was present at the formal surrender of Japan. Was the most decorated naval vessel of the Korean War. It was the only ship that was struck by an enemy battery but went on to fight until the end of the Korean War. As a flag ship, it had rare 2” X 4” teak wood decking. The decking along with many of the solid brass lighting fixtures, port holes, hinges and mahogany doors were salvaged to build the house when the ship was scrapped in 1975. The hundreds of decorative turned wood posts and other architectural features are crafted from solid Philippine mahogany. The outdoor veranda and decks are often utilized by photographers.
