Historically designated as the Norman Kennedy House – Historic Site #965, the home was named for its original owner, Norman Kennedy who was a noted artist and a friend of the architect. A painting by Kennedy hangs in the dining room and will pass on to the new owner of the home. Another benefit that will pass along to the new owner is the Mills Act property tax savings that allows for the property taxes to be approx $3,300 annually – a substantial savings that makes the home much more affordable then other homes in this price range. One of the first homes built in La Jolla’s coveted neighborhood of Upper Hermosa, architect Ullrich, artfully designed the home with all the alluring storybook details you would find in a home on the English countryside. Adorned with exterior architectural details, such as a steeply pitched gabled roof that mimics the look of old English thatched roofs, half timbered wood details, a weathered brick chimney and heavy wooden shutters. These whimsical details can be admired from every angle of the house. The beautifully landscaped grounds wrap around the house and feature grassy lawns, mature trees and stone edged garden beds that will come alive in the spring with roses and scented herbs. Perfect for entertaining, the backyard offers garden areas, brick patios, a gazebo for dining or relaxing and a built-in BBQ. The detached 2 car garage has the appearance of a quaint cottage adjoining the property. This is a home to cherish that surrounds you with warmth, personality and history.
