Elegant in its Casualness
Just two blocks over the top of Point Loma into Ocean
Beach... this classic location and property... enjoys easy access to shopping...
Freeways... Dining... and fun. Situated on the South Corner of Pescadero
and Santa Barbara virtually every room in the home has at least a peek
of the ocean. The living room... corner window pictured above...
has a commanding Northwest View... Down Pescadero and over the Ocean Beach
Pier ... to La Jolla and beyond.
Here for Virtual Tour... mapping... aerial views... additional photos...
The wonderful room featured above was added in 1980...
and designed by San Diego Architect James K. Ellison... it too stays true
to the owner's love of Frank Lloyd Wright Principles. Walls of windows...
open to the garden... in floor Hydronic Heating... a Heatilator fireplace
... skylights to flood with natural light... and combinations of stone...
brick... & wood textures to "feel" the oneness with nature.
The 7,200 square foot lot... quite large for this area... is the ideal
corner lot for an L shaped Usonian... to create this magic space... shielded
from the world... and bringing joy and sunlight daily.
Usonian homes were built around the "core of service"...
the Kitchen... bathroom and Hearth. As in his Prairie Houses... the
hearth is the metaphorical center of family life. When added on to...
the home retained this principle. The lovely Palo Verde Stone fireplace
in the living room... now augmented with the massive brick heatilator corner
fireplace... with the rooms flowing together to create a true "Great Room".
This design principle ... one of the first to use an extension of family
... living... great room... as the dining room... works in the second photo
above. The corner space of the family room... with two full walls
of glass into the garden... is the ideal space for a casual dining room...
with cupboard space for a butler's pantry and or sideboard. Spectacular
Redwood Ceilings... Board and Batten walls... all of the trademarks.
If you find yourself falling in love with these principles... and design
thoughts... please visit... The
Life and Works of Frank Lloyd Wright a
truly wonderful web site brought to us by PBS.
