                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We bought this property in 2007 from the estate of Truel Simpson. Truel was a dressmaker to the 'Rich and Famous'. Truel and his wife lived in the cottage and sold his fashionable dresses from the shop next door for almost 50 years.

                          Why the Owner Chose La Jolla Shores:
                          This property is unique because it is in the 'Heart of La Jolla Shores Village'. When you stay at the cottage your imagination brings you back to when La Jolla was a sleepy little sea side village.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Park your car in your reserved carport and walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. Or just sit on the front porch and watch the world walk by.....
