Muirlands house description
Enjoy your vacation in a unique mid-century modern home. This is an extremely kid-friendly residence. This house is ideal for families. This house is not available for parties, gatherings, or events.
Built on a half-acre lot in 1961, this house has a Zen feel to it. It features six 'pavilion' style rooms with sliding glass doors (either of glass leading outdoors or shoji style leading to an interior space). There is flat roof on the utilitarian spaces (such as the kitchen and bathrooms) and gorgeous high, peaked wood ceilings and clerestory windows in bedrooms and the family and game rooms. This is an original indoor-outdoor home. Every room in the original house is flooded with natural light, via clerestory windows and skylights. The family and game rooms have sliding glass doors to outside patios. Two bedrooms also have sliding glass doors to the outside. A 2005 addition added a cement block structure with a fourth, more private bedroom and a laundry room.
The house has lots of books, fine art photographs and toys appropriate for children between the ages of 8 and 12. Our children like to 'build,' so we have LOTS of Legos and K'nex.
The house is a mile from Windansea Beach, and from shops and restaurants in La Jolla Village.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We often use the grassy hill for sliding (either a cardboard slide in the winter months, or slip N slide in the summer months). There is a 'club house' hidden in the bushes on the property. There is an Olympic pool at the nearby high school which is open for community swimming for most of the day. The village of La Jolla offers quality dining and shopping. Downtown San Diego is just 20 minutes away. The weekly farmer's market is at the local elementary, just one mile away.
