Rare opportunity to own a piece of San Diego History. This 1913 Prairie/Spanish house was one of the first built in La Playa and has a commanding presence from the street with its 5,764 sf structure on a 26,000 sf lot overlooking the City and Bay. There have been two previous owners and current owners have fully remodeled the existing structure while adding a pool, spa, and master addition over a 3 car garage. There are several patio and balcony areas to find serenity under most any circumstance., This house enjoys the benefits of the Mills Act. Inside you will discover 4 large bedrooms, including a master with Bay and City views, fireplace, two private balconies, dressing area with his/hers walk in closets, master bath with separate tub and shower and his/hers sinks. Another upstairs guest bedroom includes en suite bath, fireplace, and sleeping porch with Bay and City views. The other two bedrooms, one with bay views, are opposite the grand living room with beam ceiling, hardwood floors, and fireplace. This room has 4 sets of french doors, 2 of which open to the front patio and the others to the back yard where you will discover a beautiful pool and spa with a canopied patio area which offers BBQ, fireplace, and refrigerator to service the pool and spa areas, as well as the Carriage House/Man Cave and Meditation Room. Back inside there is a family room off the entry with fireplace, then the formal dining room with french doors to a secluded side yard patio with fountain and vista views. A butler pantry leads to the kitchen which was remodeled to include a Thermador 6 burner gas and convection oven (double oven, the large side is convection) with griddle, Viking SS integrated exhaust fan with lights, Dacor warming drawer fully integrated with cabinets, two Sub-Zero fully integrated refrigerators, model 736tr and 736tc with refrigerator drawers and freezer drawer with ice maker, Sharp microwave Insight-Pro microwave drawer, two double drawer Fisher & Paykel integrated dishwashers. This gives you 4 dishwashers with remote controls and a breakfast nook. Out on the patio by the pool and spa is a cooking station with double sided fireplace, counter top to accommodate bar stools and outfitted with Viking BBQ on natural gas with rotisserie and light, two burner Viking SS cook top, Viking SS refrigerator, Viking SS ice maker, and Viking warming drawer. This cooking station also serves the Carriage House/Man Cave. Back inside and below decks you will find the wine cellar and tasting room to which you will bring your humidor to make this the perfect space for those pleasant stolen moments of well deserved relaxation. Finally, the laundry room is at the foot of the stairs leading to the master bedroom and just off the 3 car garage. Additional parking is available aside the Carriage House/Man Cave. Some comments on this historical and Mills Act house: From the street, the Prairie style influences are readily apparent - The broad porch, shallow hipped roof and repeated arched windows along the three sides of the second story all draw the eye horizontally. These arched windows are one of the distinctive features of this house. Spanish features include stucco over the hollow clay tiles, heavy beams and exposed roof beams with braces and brackets, tiled roofs, the arcade of arches and columns behind the house, and the bell tower with wing wall on the detached hollow clay carriage house. This is one of the first houses built in La Playa, a San Diego subdivision that pre dates Horton's Addition by 11 years. The map of La Playa was recorded in 1856. The house was not designed by a master architect and yet embodies some of the unique characteristics for which some contemporary architects as William Hebbard and Irving Gill were known. It was recently updated and added on to under the direction of Marc Tarasuck, AIA, and was named one of San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles magazine Homes of the Year in their February 2010 issue.
