Manager info

Year Purchased: 1976

About: Owner has lived here since 1977, customizing many features of this odd shaped house, but more recently removing lawns, planting succulents for water saving and separating rented portions of this oversized beach area lot from those used by owner. TENANTS HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF almost all of the house, a large garden patio area outside the kitchen, and a large lawn area connected to dining room and kitchen patio where beach equipment is normally kept and we wash off beach sand and exclusive parking [room for 3 cars] on a "lawn" east of front driveway. Access for all is over dbl. driveway and 4'- brick walk W of garage. Owner reserves for own use outside areas fenced off from rented areas; including 2 at rear of lot [NE and NW] corners [accessed along the E and W property lines] and a small work area between garage and tool room. Owner also reserves for own use the garage, a tool room next to it, and a downstairs bedroom; all are accessed from the brick walk west of garage [except tool room is accessed from garage over a small brick area between them.

Why Del Mar, CA, USA:
Lots of windows open to mostly green/garden yards in all directions, and views for some distance from upstairs, especially to east over railroad , hillsides, and roadways. Passing trains usually slip past amazingly quietly and quickly [most in less than 10 seconds]. It is at street end, bothered less by passing traffic looking for parking places, and by the winds off the ocean and noisy BEACH pleasure seekers on and walking to and from the beach. For exclusive use of renters are about 1600 sq ft inside the home and much more outside, in addition to private lawn parking for 4 cars. The garden has lots of mature bouganvilla, trees and shrubs, and open space on 3 sides, and SHADE in the summertime.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
HEXAGONS, 10, YES ten of them make up this home; and you can often see out into the gardens in several directions from one spot. All electric, no risk/bother of gas in the house. For train lovers, sometimes see them stopped on siding waiting for another train to pass by.
