The site was selected in 1911 and was one of the first two building sites to optimize the once-in-a-lifetime location. The architect Richard Requa. designed and completed the residence in 1913. Requa would become the architect of choice during the booming '20s and would spawn a new genre of architectural design coined "Southern California Architecture". Mr. Requa was appointed Master Architect for the California Pacific International Exposition of 1935-36. Many of the original architectural and interior features remain, including beautiful redwood walls and ceilings, as well as contemporary additions including 2 levels of ocean view deck space. Property features include stained glass windows and parking for 5 cars. There have been few owners over the home's 100-year life span and the current owners have lived here for four decades. It has been maintained beautifully and has appeared on the cover of "San Diego Magazine" as well as featured in television commercials. The chance to own this rare dream home is now available.
