Originally built in the mid 1920’s and lovingly renovated in the early 1990’s, this unique property sits on a large corner lot in the heart of the Beach Barber Tract, which is prized for its historicity and proximity to the ocean and the Village of La Jolla. Reminiscent of homes in Santorini, this white stucco home with blue detailing and multiple blue Sunbrella awnings has graceful architectural lines, a barrel red clay tile roof, a dozen French doors leading to three patios with fountains and over forty windows some with stained glass inserts. There are custom solid wood cabinets and doors, an open kitchen with cathedral ceiling, glass fronted cabinets, a center island and a breakfast nook. There is a dedicated dining room and a living room with barrel ceiling, built-ins for audio and storage, and a fireplace which opens onto a historic sunroom/cardroom with a latilla wood ceiling. The master bedroom suite occupies the entire second story and boasts a fireplace, wood vaulted ceiling, a luxurious bath and a large walk in closet. The two bedrooms on the main level open onto patios and could easily be used as home offices or hobby rooms. The house has oak wood and Saltillo tile flooring, lintels and posts, a two car finished garage, and air conditioning, There are exterior privacy walls contributing to the intimacy of this house and extensive mature landscaping with flagstone and Saltillo tile pathways. You will feel transported to the Greek Isles from the moment you enter this one of a kind home. Marvel at the architectural integrity of this property and imagine living only three blocks to the ocean. Making this home your own is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
