1339 Hollywood Avenue

This compact one-story Prairie school bungalow, built in 1925, is the home of Kristine Fletcher, a retired air traffic controller and current professional entrepreneur in nutrigenomics/biohacking. After five years of cruising her boat full time throughout the U.S. Waterways and the Bahamas, Kristine arrived at the Marina at Ortega Landing, where she lived aboard her boat at the marina for two years. While walking throughout Avondale, she fell in love with the historic district’s bungalows and then, more specifically, with Hollywood Avenue after meeting several of the street’s residents. Displaying an ingenuity born of boat living, Kristine designed the house’s banquette table, which drops down onto the seats and, with an inflatable mattress, provides the home’s third sleeping area. She enjoys living in proximity to her neighbors: “Small yards make the neighbors close friends. We all watch out for each other.”
