Our spacious California rental home is surrounded by ocean views and near the beaches of La Jolla, with access to a swimming pool and tennis.
From the highest point in San Diego, surround yourself with magnificent ocean views with unobstructed canyon below you. One of La Jolla's most amazing settings... 180 degrees of panoramic ocean from above the treetops, gentle sea breezes, stunning sunsets from your decks and patios. Less than a five minute drive down scenic winding roads takes you to the beaches, galleries, shops and restaurants in the village of La Jolla, yet your hilltop escape offers privacy and quiet with lush gardens and spacious, elegantly comfortable living. Need a break from the beach? Enjoy your private community recreation club with two swimming pools, tennis courts, volleyball, basketball, and whirlpool all in a beautiful park like setting... just a one block stroll from your own back yard.
Enter this modern two story, 3200 square foot home through custom designed wrought iron gates opening to a private patio and front door surrounded by 18 foot stained glass windows. The marble entry and sweeping brass banister lead upstairs to a spacious, deluxe master suite with a seating nook overlooking the ocean views... morning coffee has never been better. The roomy bathroom has a deep marble tub for soaking in the views, his and her marble vanities, plentiful mirrored closets, and a separate shower room. Three queen guest rooms and a bath complete the upstairs living area.
The main level offers a large, sunlit kitchen with corian and granite counters, hardwood floors, a refrigerated wine closet, and large sliding windows that pass through to outdoor dining. Every amenity is here, from cooking spices to coffee grinder, bagel toaster to Jenn-Air cook top. There's plenty of room to sit and watch the chef, or dine casually indoors.
The formal dining room is walled with mirrors so no one misses the view. Beautifully decorated in neutral tones, the comfortably elegant living room has twenty foot ceilings with full length windows looking toward the ocean. It's one spot to watch TV or relax in the swivel rockers in front of the fire.
A den nearby opens to the front patio, walled with sweet evening jasmine and camilla trees. The daybed can become a two twins making a 5th bedroom possibility, with another full bathroom across the hall. The spacious family room has large sliding doors opening to the grassy yard and decks and patios overlooking the panoramic view. A wraparound sectional and overstuffed chair make this the favorite spot for the family to gather for TV, playing games, or relaxing together.
Step outside and you're surrounded with unobstructed views of the ocean, a lush canyon, and two grassy yards for playing or sunning. The large deck and patios are furnished with Adirondack chairs, chaise lounges, three wrought iron dining tables, and plenty of room to relax, sun, dine, and toast the sunset. Privacy abounds in this quiet and beautiful setting, whether you're relaxing in the rose garden or dining atop the panorama of canyon and ocean. Each evening, you can watch the distant fireworks at SeaWorld, and listen to the bark of the seals at the Cove. A garage space and plentiful street parking is available, and the drive to the village and numerous beaches of La Jolla is just minutes. You can walk there with ease, but the hike back up the mountain is a task! Stroll one block to your private recreation center with three tennis courts, two pools, volleyball, basketball and handball courts, a workout room and whirlpool, all in a delightful park-like setting.
Terry, just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to let you know how much we enjoyed our week in your house. We made a trip to San Diego to the Seafront and around the gaslight area, although the houses featured are almost the same period as our house here in Kew! We also thoroughly enjoyed the shops in La Jolla as well as at the Fashion Valley Mall, which highly delighted Alison who spent all her holiday money and more. The club around the corner was a great facility. This is the first time for a number of years that we didn't rent a villa with a pool, however, it was just as easy to take the short walk down the hill. A bit of a shock though having swum in the 'family' pool the first time (which as you know is heated) then diving into the 'adult' pool the next day that wasn't!! Your house was delightful and we are now all intrigued about your family. I feel as if I know them as we enjoyed looking at all the lovely photographs - your daughter is gorgeous. I assume the babies are hers. The view from the deck was spectaclular and my father spent many hours looking through his binoculars at the sea and to downtown San Diego. We're back in the groove at home, and it seems a lifetime away from the relaxing week we had at your home in La Jolla.
Once again, Many thanks,
