Property description

Don't miss the video tour! Click 'Video' Button at top left of this listing!

This charming, 'Pottery Barn' style home is located in the heart of La Jolla, three blocks from famous Wind n' Sea Beach and close to village eateries and shops.

Relax, enjoy the hickory-pecan hardwood floors throughout, large, open, sunny living area, and 'Pottery Barn' furnishings sprinkled with early American antiques. This three bedroom, two bath, smoke-free home also features large front and back yards (back fully fenced) in a quiet, serene residential neighborhood. The large patio in back is perfect for barbecues, entertaining, or just relaxing in the sun.

The master suite features a private entrance in back and the home accommodates up to six people in two queen beds and two twins. A perfect and much more economical alternative to more expensive hotels in La Jolla.

La Jolla, 'The Jewel' and long renowned as 'the American Riviera' is unique in its European feel and resort town atmosphere. Bask in the Mediterranean climate, stroll village streets lined with shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Swim at 'The Cove' with marked one-quarter and half mile buoys or at the new heated Olympic size pool just a block away. And,of course, the beach is just down the street!

The University of California, La Jolla also offers day passes to the RIMAC Sports Center and Canyonview Olympic pool complex. Other attractions on campus include the world famous La Jolla Playhouse, libraries,concerts, and the Scripps Oceanographic Aquarium.

Torry Pines Golf Course lies just to the north of La Jolla on the bluffs overlooking Black's Beach (renowned surfing, clothing optional, pristine undeveloped beach). Avoid the congestion and traffic of Del Mar for the late summer Del Mar Races by staying not too far away in La Jolla.

La Jolla is only 20 minutes from the San Diego International Airport and city center with its multitude of attractions.

Please note:This is a doctor's home in a quiet residential neighborhood of La Jolla.We welcome guests who appreciate the home and surroundings.Families welcome, but children must be well behaved and not disruptive of the neighbors or destructive of the property and furnishings.This house has not been child proofed (cabinets doors,etc).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Barb, the onsite property manager, and I have lived here since 1989 when I purchased the property. I am semi retired and travel frequently ,usually gone all summer. I currently practice part time and work part time with a small biotech company based in San Diego. Barb rents the studio located behind the main house and also has a house cleaning and pet sitting service(both available to guests in the house).

Why the Owner Chose Village of La Jolla:
This has been my home since 1989. I have traveled all over the world and would not trade this for anything! La Jolla truly is a gem that fortunately is still somewhat untouched from masses of tourists. The location, weather, and available activities are uncomparable world wide.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Again, La Jolla is unbeatable for location, weather and activities. Summer in La Jolla is like being on the French, Italian, or Spanish Riviera without the crowds!
