Preservation champion Laura Davick knows Crystal Cove’s history better than most. Her parents met and spent their early married years here, and as a child Laura called one of these cottages home. The bungalows she prizes offer a glimpse of life during California’s Golden Age, when this area sparkled with lush orange groves and pristine beaches. Early Hollywood filmmakers used the coast as the site of several “South Seas” films, including 1917’s Treasure Island.
