About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Unique And Ultra Modern, With Organic Micro Farm And Hot Tub

This home was built and is owned by a landscape and home architect! Also, the owner is vegan so there is a fully functioning micro farm on the property.

This modern home features recycled distressed hard wood floors on the upper level. Also on that level there is a glass floor going into the master bedroom.

The living room features a 55' television with most cable channels. The kitchen is all granite counter tops with stainless steel appliances.

The downstairs level features all painted concrete floors. The stair case is also all stainless steel as well.

The third bonus room features a queen sized bed.

In the back of the property there is also a 30 foot high deck with lounge furniture, a heater and a new 6 person Hot Springs Spa.

The entire property is extremely secluded for it's location in the center of town.

The property is located approximately 10 minutes by walking to downtown Hillcrest. The airport, downtown, beaches, Sea World, Zoo, Balboa Park, etc.... are all just minutes away from this centrally located home.

TOT certificate number is #612881

About Zapher Dajani

Check out House Hunters International for an entire episode featuring the purchase of our vacation rental in Puerto Vallarta Mexico & to find out more about me.

I live in San Diego and own a catering / event design company. I also own a condo in Las Vegas, Puerto Vallarta, and Maui.

Zapher Dajani purchased this house in 2006

Why Zapher Dajani chose Hillcrest

This is an incredibly unique property. First, as a vegan, we created a fully functional micro farm on property. Second, my partner is a landscape and building architect. So every possible detail is impressive. Finally, it's so close to everything with only a 10 minute walk to downtown Hillcrest.

What makes this house unique

Secluded yet central to everything. The secluded garden setting is nothing short of feeling paradise in person. Plenty of off street parking.

Kids have never been to something like this. Complete Paradise for ALL!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures dont do this place justice. It's way more magical and serene than any other place i have been to. Imagine the most luxurious hotel and grounds, nestled very privately in the middle of the city, and you have found this home. The owner is a great guy and does everything he can to make you feel very welcome. 10 Stars!

Location Is Perfect. The Garden is WOW! The House was modern and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I would never consider staying anywhere else in San Diego when i visit again. So many things are walking distance: restaurants, Little Italy, Hillcrest, Downtown, Mission Hills, and two brand new grocery stores. Sea World, the Zoo and the beaches are about 10 minutes by car. THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving us the pleasure of staying at your home Zapher!

Highly Recommend this Home

  • 5 of 5

The best part about this house, although everything is amazing, if the location. Our family enjoyed Sea World, Coronado, the beaches, Little Italy, the zoo and downtown. All of these locations were no more than 15 minutes away. Most of these places were walking distance.

We were also excited to pick our own fruits and vegetables daily and were so impressed with the variety and quality! We will be back! Thank you Zapher !
