North Park house description

A lush gated Oasis just steps from Balboa Park -- this restored 1926 Craftsman Compound offers two 800 sq ft vacation suites, each designed for a visiting couple or individual. The upper level Bungalow Suite has been restored to its original Arts & Crafts style, with mahogany stained moldings, refinished oak floors, oversized wood windows, and a charming walk out veranda, plus Central Air conditioning. A private gate leads from street to its secluded tropical courtyard w/ fountain and vine covered pergola, a private stairway leading up to its front covered porch. The spacious Living Room has comfortable chenille sofa and leather recliner, fine antiques, and large flat screen TV with Hi Def cable programming. Beyond lies a fully remodeled & appointed Kitchen w/stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry. Down the hall a spacious Master -- with premier quality king bed, dresser, antique writing desk, and TV. All rooms have large picture windows overlooking the gardens below. The bathroom has been remodeled w/glazed Italian tiles, and features its original soaking tub plus tiled stall Shower. Featured in San Diego's Save Our Heritage Organization's Tour of historic homes and surrounded by nearly an acre of tropical gardens -- this unique Craftsman style Compound offers visiting couples a bucolic Oasis in the middle of the city. Conveniently located five minutes from Downtown's Gaslamp District, popular Hillcrest, or trendy North Park and with Coronado's famous beaches just 2 freeway exits away -- its location can't be beat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I purchased this property over 15 years ago and spent two full years restoring the 3 level structure and planting the gardens. I was honored to have my property featured in the 2007 Historic Tour of San Diego homes... I am also a local Realtor and Home design & landscape Consultant. Began home remodeling over 30 years ago. Am happy to offer insider tips on great places to visit/best local restaurants, have shown real estate and sold several homes to visiting guests, as well. Dozens have become annual guests, reserving weeks or months here annually, becoming close personal friends.

Why the Owner Chose North Park:
The triple sized lot covered mostly in lush gardens offers a sense of peace & privacy rarely found this close to Downtown and city center.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The mature gardens and property's central location are among its special features. The unexpected scale of the back garden startles most visitors. From the street, the property is rather hidden and unassuming. Most don't anticipate its multiple levels and architectural charm. A special treat is the visiting wildlife - whether seen roosting in trees or drinking from the fountains... Hawks, owls, tropical parrots, squirrels, hummingbirds, even an occasional fox have been spotted on the grounds.
