Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I discovered this unique property 20 years ago while visiting from out of town, am the second owner since 1926. It took many years to restore and renovate its 16 rooms and multiple levels. The garden areas were essentially a blank canvas in need of a thoughtful plan and hundreds of suitable shrubs & trees. Ripe for a major Make Over -- this was an exciting project requiring the skills of many craftsmen. Today, in tune with tropically themed Balboa Park & its San Diego Zoo -- mature King Palms, Ginger, & Trumpet Vines flourish under the San Diego sun.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
If you are a traveling couple or individual seeking a well appointed, comfortable accommodation in a quiet residential neighborhood without the noise & congestion of Downtown or the beach communities... you might find this property ideal. Located between lively Hillcrest and trendy North Park, this Park adjacent community has charming bungalows, beautiful gardens, with easy access to major freeways and the International Airport.
