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.

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 with added security of being in a private home away from groups of people in hotel setting.

A perfect alternative to European beach destinations without long flights and connections. Bask in the Mediterranean climate, stroll village streets lined with shops, restaurants, and art galleries.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Barb, the onsite property manager, and I have lived on property since 1989 when I purchased the property. I am semi retired and travel frequently ,usually gone all summer. I primarily work with a 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). Originally from the Midwest ( Champaign, IL), went to college in Indiana (De Pauw University), graduate school in Chicago ( University of Illinois College of Dentistry) and ended up in San Diego. I remain quite active, my main hobby is swimming, both pool and ocean which I do daily, along with gym workouts on campus at UCSD and running. I enjoy travel, when time permits and visits to Maui, where I lived for 2 years and still have a condo (VRBO/61838!).

Why the Owner Chose La Jolla, San Diego, CA, USA:
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 home is one of the older beach homes remaining in the area and is very well maintained with large yards, front and back. These homes unfortunately are disappearing in the area as older home are built out in condo style development. If you are looking for a little character and appreciate the privacy and space of a traditional yard , this is the house for you.

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! The house is older, well maintained, traditional , with privacy and large front and back yards. As with all houses, you avoid the congestion and risks of large hotel complexes in urban areas.
