LUXURY HISTORIC HILLTOP VILLA--OCEAN BREEZES, PRIVATE WALLED, GATED SANCTUARY!

Mission Hills Estate Rental Photos and Description

Rare Opportunity To Experience Elite, Private Luxury Living: Views, Convenience

Welcome to truly elite, private luxury living within the gates of the Samuel & Lulu Maxwell House, 1927, the City of San Diego Historic Landmark No. 1080 -- an extraordinary hilltop villa in the prime historic district of North Mission Hills.

This Spanish Colonial Revival style masterpiece has been completely and authentically refurbished so that all of the warm period details from rough-hewn beamed ceilings to wrought iron hardware to original fireplaces to multiple sets of French Doors to archways to alcoves to built-ins to hardwood and intricate patterned Spanish tile floors and much more ALL combine to create an intimate sanctuary to enjoy every day life as well as the ultimate setting for sophisticated indoor-outdoor living with view decks and an old-world courtyard ideal for entertaining.

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!

Essentially unlimited street parking in front of home. Kitchen grandly remodeled in 2012 with refinished wood floors, Viking appliances, Miele built-in coffee system, Fisher & Paykal dishwasher drawers, hand painted cabinets, flat screen TV in breakfast nook with cushioned window seat looking to view.

And, 2014 brought two new Samsung 65'/60' flatscreen TVs so the house has 7! While San Diego means outdoor living, it's nice to come home to the finest in everything!

Norton Rappaport purchased this estate in 2009

After building an ocean-view residence in La Jolla that was profiled in Better Homes & Gardens, this old house seemed like it would be a most memorable second act!

Even before the restoration, it was perfect: intimate and beautiful while located on one of the most prestigious streets in all of San Diego. It just needed some care, patience and investment to renew its' glory. Who could resist?

Fast forward: City Of San Diego agreed and designated this residence, built in 1927, a landmark property, forever to be known as the Samuel & Lulu Maxwell House.

The combination of luxury, historical ambience and romance, meandering gardens, architectural beauty and much more is not otherwise available in San Diego -- there are no comps to the Samuel & Lulu Maxwell residence.

Occasionally, homes like this are available, but they are all history with meager luxury; this combines both in an incredibly sophisticated manner that beckons to all.
