Formerly used by its residents to collect rain water for cooking and bathing, it now provides easy access to beach chairs, a boogie board, an ironing board and enfant high chair. The main building as well as each unit are accessed via electronic key pads, so no keys are required. The property consists of 3 buildings one of which was formerly a horse barn.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I grew up in Northampton Massachusetts, a town with countless beautiful old homes and lots of woods. I spent countless days in my youth building tree forts never knowing that those 2 dynamics would intersect at this point. Upon arriving in San Diego with an interest in building and purchasing real estate, I became immediately interested in the largely neglected Victorian buildings in this area of town. This property became a labor of love for me many years ago and I hope that legacy will be carried forward by my 3 sons. My wife if Japanese, so our family often divides our time between 2 very different worlds, both with much to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Golden Hill:
It is our hope that our guests will appreciate the attention to detail and uniqueness of design that has been incorporated into every aspect of this property.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This property is strategically located close to most of San Diego's most popular destinations. It's central location and proximity to a newly revitalized downtown, airport, beaches and parks affords our guests the best possible experience while visiting San Diego.
