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.
Here for Virtual Tour... mapping... aerial views... additional photos...
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!
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.
