La Costa house description

From both decks or the master suite you will be mezmerized by the ocean views, of Catalina, San Clemente & Coronado Islands, both in the morning dawn with deep blue hues & evening sunset with a colorful aray of purples, pinks and oranges. The house is very warm feeling visually, has a constant ocean breeze with window adjustment or can be warm with the sunshine, or Heat/AC so always comfortable.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We are Susan & Gary and live just a few miles away, as having two houses and wanting to combine, left this one for you! I am in a family owed commercial landscaping business, and Gary is a Pharmacist. We enjoy entertaining, and traveling, and love where we live! Hope you decide to come and visit!

                          Why the Owner Chose La Costa:
                          The house has a very warm and comforting feel, and the back patio fills you with a feeling of 'awe', with the wide open view to the ocean and pine trees close by to give that truly outdoors feel. When I was planning how to encompass this feel, we decided we needed all the fun amenities, so as the jacuzzi, built in BBQ with seating all around, fountain for ambiance and a firepit to cozy up to, and a 400 sf redwood deck above for another even better view! The area is easily accessed just up Alga Rd from the 200 year old road trailed by the Padres called El Camino Real, that now has everything you need, shopping, resturants, golf, then the beaches another mile to the west!! It's fabulous!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          When I am at this home, it feels like being on vacation! Everyone who comes in, says the same thing, or just, wow, I Love your house!
