An old historic landmark in Los Alamos California has come alive! Centrally located between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this “humming with business” gas station established in 1926, once fueled the cars of movie stars headed for our beautiful central coast as the film industry, cattle ranches and tourism was a beehive of activity. The garage also kept the local farmers tractors in good repair as they worked the rich soil into bountiful crops.
The Station is a unique location right here in the heart of wine country. Between the historic Union Hotel and the Yellow Victorian Bed and Breakfast, the three original gas pumps are still out front as a testimony of the days gone by. Having gone through a complete restoration, the “garage” is now a venue featuring a breathtaking chandelier in the breezeway and is charmed with relics of the old west hanging from the rafters. Saddles and boots add to the ambiance of the old west Los Alamos is known for.
This historical landmark captured the eyes of the owner, Sean McGrath, during his early days at Cal Poly. It seemingly stayed with him throughout the years. It was the old western culture and nature of Los Alamos that appealed to him.
A friendship with Mr. Tony Cano of Agave Design Group was borne in 2005. It was really a collaboration between Tony and Sean that founded the vision. They worked together hand in hand with various internal design elements being careful to adhere to the external facade in recognition of the historical elements of the building. We were fortunate to be able to design together the entire landscape element that compliments the structure today. Equally important, because of our continuing friendship, we do have future plans for our next venture within the Bell Street Corridor.
