About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

This gracious home is ideally located on Hillside Drive in one of La Jolla’s oldest and most prestigious neighborhoods. It is a short two or three minute drive from the village’s shopping and restaurants, and from La Jolla Shores, the area’s premier swimming beach.
Situated near the foot of Mount Soledad, the site was chosen when La Jolla was still an unfilled canvas. Acquired soon after it was built in the late twenties by one of La Jolla’s first doctors, the family later remodeled it in the fifties. Now owned by celebrated cookbook author, Jim Peyton, a La Jolla native, it was recently completely remodeled and restored to provide contemporary amenities with the elegance of old La Jolla. A striking feature is the extensive garden that occupies two full lots, a rare amenity in La Jolla.
The house has a spacious living room and a large kitchen with tile and granite counters. The family-dining room overlooks the gardens and adjacent canyon. There are two one-bedroom suites with private, attached sitting rooms and bathrooms, and a third bedroom and bath. All three bedrooms have kingsize beds. Two of them have top quality pillow-top mattresses and the third bedroom features a Tempurpedic mattress. The sitting room of the master suite has a library that includes historical books on the area. Each bedroom has its own television, and there is a rollaway and futon for extra sleepers.
The entire house is furnished with oriental rugs, antiques and appropriate contemporary pieces. The expansive grounds feature a covered outdoor entertainment area and private nooks, perfect for a relaxing afternoon. There are grills in the entertainment area and in the kitchen patio, where guests are welcome to pluck fresh herbs from the herb garden.

Rental Rates
The rental rate ranges from $2,250 per week to $2,950 per week, with discounts available for longer stays and during the off-season. For small parties, the street level, with the one-bedroom, master suite, living room, kitchen and family-dining room may be rented separately during the off-season for $1,850 per week. If that option is chosen the remaining two bedrooms remain vacant.

Features and Amenities
The kitchen includes a Miele stove and stainless steel vent, an oven, a microwave, a refrigerator with ice-maker, a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, all cutlery, china, and many small kitchen appliances and tools. Four telephones, including one in each bedroom. Four televisions, including one in each bedroom. High-speed internet connection in the master suite. Electronic security system; guests wishing to use it will be assigned a temporary code and password. Five AM/FM radios, two with CD players. The house is ideally suited for walks in the neighboring hills and a short fifteen minutes from the Del Mar racetrack, the San Diego zoo, Sea World, and most other local attractions. There are two garages and a long driveway for off-street parking.
All linens, tissues and other supplies are included in the rental rate, as are utilities, and taxes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1928

About the owner: Since shortly after it was built, the house has been in three generations of the same family, spanning over eighty years. The current owner, Jim Peyton, was born and raised in La Jolla. He is a writer, with four well regarded books on Mexican food and culture in print. He is also a restaurant consultant.

Why the Owner Chose La Jolla, San Diego, CA, USA:
The house is located in a perfect central location, equidistant between La Jolla village and the area's best swimming beach. The neighborhood is quiet and exclusive, and the home occupies two large lots, a rare amenity in La Jolla that permits privacy. It also has ample offstreet parking, another rarity.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home's location allows access to beaches and the restaurants and shopping in the village within minutes. The amenities of San Diego are but ten to fifteen minutes away as is the racetrack in Del Mar. The world famous Torrey Pines golf courses are just a few miles away.
