Designed by noted architect Edgar Uhlrich, this remarkable ocean view two story home on a double size lot with historic designation is in the most coveted area of La Jolla Shores walking distance to the ocean and shops.  Fresh cool ocean breezes filter through the doors and windows of this home elevated off the street with security gates giving a sense of serenity and security.  View surfers, kayakers, swimmers, boats and sunsets from this very private property perfect for entertaining on the back patio or luxuriate in the grassy areas ideal for children’s play. The upper deck particularly capitalizes on the view where you will feel like king of the hill.   This four bedroom (two possible masters), four modern bath home is believed to have been built in 1929 and has a stately living room running the full length of the house with wood beams,  a beautiful fireplace with granite surround, original wood shutters and French doors.  There are wood and carpeted floors, a flexible floor plan with an office , breakfast room or bedroom on the main level, built in dressers and many period details.  This home is awaiting designation of the Mills Act which was applied for in March 2016.  If you appreciate historic homes and you want to be part of the action but also apart from the action on your own private sanctuary, this is the perfect home for you.
