Building, Structure, & Object Record

This turn-of-the-twentieth-century cottage appears in good condition with no apparent visible alterations since the property was last evaluated in 2005 for eligiblity for local Landmark designation. In addition to its architectural merit, the property's significance is also derived from its association with Leslie C. Brand, a Glendale, California-based real estate promoter of some renown. Although the property does not appear to be individually eligible for listing in the National Register or California Register, it was designated as a City of Santa Monica Landmark in 2005. However, the property no longer contributes to a potential district that was initially comprised of seven contributors all reflective of the turn-of-the-century cottage style. This potential district now consists of three intact contributors (1012 2nd Street, 954 5th Street, and 1124 7th Street) and three substantially altered contributors (927 4th Street, 1043 4th Street, and 1011 6th Street). The dwelling located at 1024 4th Street, previously identified as a contributing property, was demolished in 1997. Due to the removal of one potential district contributor and the loss of substantial physical integrity to three others, it appears that a Turn-of-the-Century Thematic District no longer exists. http://gismap.santa-monica.org/website/landmarkphotos/1012_2ndSt.jpg
