Located around the corner from La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, just two blocks from the shops & restaurants of the Shores, this quintessential beach house is a tranquil hideaway that features the owners’ artistic touches throughout! Showcased on La Jolla’s Secret Garden Tour, the beautifully landscaped backyard is a serene oasis with a stone spa, koi pond & a relaxing palapa with peak ocean views! Remodeled by Dewhurst in 2000, the sunny & bright home offers 3BR/2BA, plus a private 1BR/1BA guest apartment!
Open the gate & enter through the front yard’s enchanting terraced garden, lined & paved with romantic curved flagstone paths, to the home’s front entrance. Pass through the charming foyer, into the generous-sized living room that features cozy niches near the room’s large bay windows, a flagstone fireplace, wainscoting, moldings, and the same gleaming hardwood floors that are continued throughout the tranquil home. Opposite the foyer sits the home’s separate dining room with a gracious bay window that looks onto the front garden & opens to a restful wood-paneled den. The adjacent cook’s kitchen, which offers peak ocean views, features a Viking range, oven & professional hood, a SubZero refrigerator, butcher block counters, and custom white cabinetry, as well as a breakfast bar & eat-in breakfast area that open through a French door to the home’s peaceful patio & garden. The garden’s in-ground flagstone spa and koi pond feature waterfalls, adding to the already-tranquil setting by the gas fire pit & charming palapa, reminiscent of La Jolla’s iconic Windansea Shack. Listen to the sound of the waterfalls from the serene master suite that looks onto the backyard’s garden & offers a walk-in closet and gracious bathroom with Waterworks tile & fixtures. The main house features two additional comfortable bedrooms, one with darling built-in bunk beds, and the other with custom-built twin daybeds made from solid maple! Walk along the side of the home and pass the cozy & fort-like “Duck Room” – an ideal kids’ playroom or study area – which also provides access to the home’s abundant storage! Finally, enter from the driveway down a side pathway into the secluded guest apartment with private entrance, which is perfect for in-laws or houseguests! The guest suite offers a living area, breakfast area, fully-equipped kitchen, bedroom, bath & stacked washer/dryer. Come tour this restful retreat and see how much you will enjoy living in this prime La Jolla Shores location!
