This distinguished residence lives like a private compound, is set back more than 20 feet, is a corner lot and has a massive bamboo hedge, and is also walled and gated.
The property exhibits unobstructed views, exceptional quality craftsmanship and overall design articulation of the Spanish Colonial Revival style.
Character defining architectural features which contributed to its' designation as a San Diego HIstorical Landmark include low-pitched terra cotta tile roofs, softly undulating stucco exterior wall surfaces, asymmetrical facades, recessed windows and doors, arched openings, decorative grilles and garden walls.
This integrity and beauty combine to create a grand 'feeling' which the Historic Review Board characterizes as this property's ''expression of the aesthetic or and historic sense of a particular period of time'.
The photos are as good a proxy for this elegant residence as any can be, but some additional details: A 2400 s.f. home on a nearly 18,000 s.f. lot with 4 bedrooms or (3+ attached library/nursery) and 3 1/2 baths including detached guest house. Lives much larger as nearly all living spaces open to finished courtyards, decks, terraces and gardens for the ultimate in indoor/outdoor Southern California living!
