North Park cottage description

We love our cottage but of course our opinion is biased. Please click on 'Reviews' for unbiased opinions.
That said... if you want to walk to the Zoo, museums, dozens of local restaurants and bars, we have the place for you. We also have a DecoBike kiosk 1/2 block away and San Diego's downtown historic Gas Lamp district and Coronado beaches are just a 15 minute drive away. For sports enthusiasts will find golf, disc golf, tennis, swimming, hiking and running trails all within walking distance.
Built in 1911, our 104 year old stable has been converted to a comfortable 1 bedroom cottage complete with all the amenities of home.
Here are just a few:
Full kitchen with all the utensils needed to prepare a gourmet meal. Heated tile floors in the bathroom and a whirlpool tub, hair dryer, quality shampoo and body wash, plenty of towels. Queen-size bed with memory foam mattress top (you will this see mentioned in our guest reviews.) Walk-in closet (almost bedroom size) with a laundry room with front load washer and dryer. Broadband internet access with WIFI and a printer/scanner. HD Cable TV, Blu-ray player, Netflix, Pandora web browser & more. Private fenced patio with stainless steel 3-burner BBQ.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We love Craftsman style homes! Sharon is a Realtor and Michael is a General Contractor. Our passion is making our homes comfortable, functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Why the Owner Chose North Park:
Location, location, location! Centrally located North Park offers easy access to the most popular attractions San Diego has to offer. Great year-round weather and no bugs are a plus too! (We're both originally from southern states) Since moving to San Diego in 1983 we have resided in Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and Downtown San Diego but North Park is by far our favorite place to live.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our home is on a quiet, 1-block long section of Spruce. North Park is a centrally located San Diego neighborhood and an easy drive to Sea World, Coronado, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, the downtown bayfront and dozens of other attractions.
