Property description

Enjoy your vacation in a unique mid-century modern home. 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. Most rooms have sliding glass doors to the outside. A 2005 addition added a cement block structure with a fifth, more private bedroom and a laundry room.

The house has lots of books and fine art photographs. Our children like to 'build,' so we have LOTS of Legos.

The house is a mile from Windansea Beach, and from shops and restaurants in La Jolla Village.
