La Mesa house description

This beautiful home, built in the early 1930's profiled on the 2011 LaMesa Historic Home Tour has both character and charm. In our 3800sf home there are 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a teenagers gameroom, a gorgeous pool/spa, plus a huge yard, with plenty of outdoor activities.

The master bedroom has a king bed, with attached balconies and gorgeous views. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed. The master bath has a jetted spa tub. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and a private bathroom. The 4th bedroom has a full bed and is perfect if you have children in your party. There is a futon in the Great room.

A crib and alternate sleeping arrangements can be made utilizing the house, as long as we are made aware in advance.

As you walk in, the open Great room immediately captures your attention. There are several sitting areas, that provide ample space to chat, or chill. The living room has a fireplace, open beam ceilings, a flat screen TV, and a large window to enjoy the activities in the pool (with the advantage of never getting wet).

The kitchen is equally comfortable, with a large gas range, double stack gas ovens, fully equipped for your every need.

If you'd prefer, we can provide resources for an excellent caterer to prepare your meals, as well as a cleaning services to take care of any additional cleaning needs you may have during your stay. (additional but reasonable fees for these services).

Our family loves sharing our home, and will make your stay, a wonderful experience.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Welcome to our home. We are Kelly and Richard Forman, the owners of this beautiful property. We had the good fortune to purchase this estate in 2004, and have loved living here every minute. We frequently travel, leaving the house available for others enjoyment...and it seems only fitting that we share our blessings with others. San Diego is such a warm and welcoming place, our home is certainly the same. We are proud, active parents of 2 boys, ages 14 and 15. I am a flight nurse for Mercy Air Helicopters, and my husband is a cameraman for The Amazing Race and COPS.

              Why the Owner Chose La Mesa:
              LaMesa is the "Jewel of the Hills" and Mt. Helix is no exception. Located on the mountainside, we have the most incredible views. Our house is located 2 minutes from 2 different freeways. You can be in the GasLamp District downtown, watching the San Diego Padres pay ball, or at the fabulous San Diego Zoo within 15 minutes. SeaWorld is a short 25 minutes away, and LegoLand is 45 minutes. Our neighbors are the greatest....and when it's time to go, we are a quick 15 minutes to the airport.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Numerous guests have remarked how "comfortable" this house is, truly the beauty of it all. You can see how we enjoy daily comforts of our surroundings, whether it's sitting by the pool reading a book, and curled up on the couch with a blanket, "chilling" with the tube!
