This potentially historic home was designed by Edgar Ullrich during the development of Upper Hermosa and embodies the architectural and landscape elements that define this neighborhood, and may benefit from reduced property taxes via the Mills Act. The two-story home is situated on a lot graced by mature landscaping and a 100-year old tree planted by Kate Sessions that creates a captivating canopy and unrivaled ambiance. Original design details like the impeccable millwork, distinctive chimney, grilled doors & windows and wooden shutters adorn this prominent property, showcasing its timeless charm. The entry level boasts a versatile office, as well as formal dining & entertaining spaces that open to the backyard. The upstairs features a spacious primary suite with an adjoining room, ideal for private retreat or nursery. Additionally, there are two secondary bedrooms, and front & rear balconies that offer picturesque views. A kitchen remodel in the 80s created a family room and sunroom with easy access to the spacious backyard that is perfect for relaxation and entertainment. Furthermore, the home's elevation sited above the street affords privacy and superb horizon ocean views with close proximity to La Jolla's fine amenities. This property is an extraordinary example of grand living in a bygone era that has stood the test of time and is a generational opportunity that blends history, craftsmanship and unmatched elegance.
