                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I discovered this unique property 15 years ago while visiting from out of town, and am the second owner since 1926. Spent many years restoring this multi level Craftsman compound and installing all the tropical gardens. The property was ripe for a major Make Over -- had great bones and a terrific location. Just steps from Balboa Park -- San Diego's own 1200 acre 'Central Park.'

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  If you are a traveling couple or individual seeking a tasteful, comfortable accommodation in a quiet residential neighborhood without the noise and congestion of Downtown or the beach communities... you should find this location ideal. Located between lively Hillcrest and trendy North Park, this Morley Field setting has historic homes, beautiful parks, and offers easy access to major freeways and the International Airport.
