Truly an Incredible Opportunity is this Point Loma / Ocean Beach... Diamond in the Rough! The home has tons of potential and a wonderful Full Ocean view to the West & North. Just two blocks into OB... right at the top of Point Loma on Quiet Pescadero Avenue. This Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Usonian is a classic. Single Story wood and stone, L shaped to provide privacy from the street, maximize the Ocean View, and open the entire home to the vast garden area in the rear.  Ample Interior rooms most with Ocean Views and Garden views... and all with at least a peek of the Ocean. The interior designed to wrap around the "service core"... the Kitchen, bath and Hearth.  The Hearth... the metaphorical center of family life.  The two wings extend to embrace the garden. Palo Verde Stone fireplace... with board and batten walls... beamed ceilings... all part of the original... this Living Room area... and original three bedrooms have hardwood floors under the carpet.  Remodeled and added on to in 1980 SD Architect James K. Ellison held true to the Frank Lloyd Wright influence.  The vast Family room added to the core of the home incorporates Usonian principles of under floor heat... view to the garden... and material and spatial characteristics to give a sense of serenity... variety... and security. Wood and stone surfaces create warmth and oneness with nature. Skylights have been added in many areas to brighten. The home... originally a single story now has a newer Master above the Garage... with only three steps up to the Master Suite.  A new Master Suite could be added on a true second story and would have an incredible panoramic Ocean View to La Jolla and beyond. Due to the deferred maintenance and desire of the estate to sell immediately... AS IS... the property is priced at raw land value for this location.  For the lover of history... character... nature and charm... the remodel opportunity of Dreams.  Seller will entertain offers in a range of $1,050,000 to $1,250,876.

West View... Over Sunset Cliffs and beyond to Sunsets of DreamsNorth View over Ocean Beach Pier... to La Jolla...

These two photos are taken from the roof of the home to indicate what the view would be like for a new second story Master Suite... which would be an obvious improvement to bring this timeless classic into the 21st Century.  The first photo above is identical with exception of angle.. to the view from the master suite.  This view to the West is where Sunsets... over appropriately named "Sunset Cliffs"... will appear to stun... year round.  Return to "Top Gun" to see what the neighborhood looked like from the back of "Tom Crews' Motorcycle".  The second view above is identical... again except for angle... as the view from the classic Usonian Living Room.  Looking Northwest down quiet Pescadero Avenue... the view will never be lost.  Over Ocean Beach Pier (yes you'll see 4th of July Fireworks)... to La Jolla.  This June view... illustrates San Diego's famous "June Gloom" Marine Layer... but as you see... even on bad view days... it is stunning!

Master Suite with Classic Corner Windows and Panoramic Ocean ViewsUsonian Living Room... the heart of the family... creating warmth and serenity...

While not designed by Frank Lloyd Wright... this Gem was inspired by the builders love of the Usonian Principles that Frank Lloyd Wright gave us.  Board and Batten Walls... Beamed Ceilings... Corner Windows... combinations of textures to create warmth... a oneness with nature.. are all evident in the two photos above.  The first photo is the Master suite... with a West Panoramic Ocean View... as well as a deck access to the private gardens in the rear.  The second photo above is the Living Room... "Formal" being refrained from because Frank Lloyd Wright would not have seen this as formal space.  Wrapped around a Palo Verde Stone fireplace... and hearth... The corner of the home maximizes the ocean view... and serves to screen the larger rear yard from the world.
