                  Year Purchased: 1976

                  About the owner: We're homeowners and have lived here for over 30 years. We love the area and our friendly neighborhood. We have a family dog on the property who will always be separated from your cottage and patio. She's friendly but may bark at first.

                  Why the Owner Chose Solana Beach:
                  It has old Solana Beach charm and is in a great neighborhood to walk in that's close to lots of fun things to do!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  You are close to everything here. Great beaches are all close by. There's lots of shopping and restaurants in the area. There are nature walks and trails close by. The Del Mar Racetrack & Fairgrounds are a mile away. SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, and Legoland are all short drives from Solana Beach. Self Realization Fellowship is just over 2 miles away. A perfect vacation spot with something for everyone.
