Manager info

Year Purchased: 1977

About: Owner has lived here since 1977, customizing many features of this odd shaped house and oversized lot, especially slowly taking "green' steps to conserve and try to reuse water, wood, other materials, and trying to keep consumption and waste to a minimum. Owner reserves for own use fenced off yard space in NE & NW lot corners, the garage/tool shed areas and a studio [under 300sqft] with separate entrance in NW corner of first floor. Front [S of fences] and W of buildings is shared access area.

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.
