YES! The neighborhood is special. Corner lot, look at the neighbors, look at the location, just inside the coveted Bird Rock school district, and notice that tree-roofed lane right behind the house which is a little known bike path for safe biking from Nautilus to Pacific Beach. This savvy Mid-Century 1-story has original oak floors, fireplace, built-in shelving, a 12-square window wall with view to the front patio/BBQ area, raised windows in the master bedroom that welcome light and preserve privacy. See suppl.. Yes, those fruits growing in the back are Lemon, Orange and Lime. And the privacy in the back yard is soooooo nice! The SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE describes La Jolla as “Natural beauty of beach buttressed by commitment to innovation, scholarship. La Jolla was started as a get away for San Diegans looking for sea air and stunning view in 1887, when Frank T. Botsford and partners Charles Dearborn and George Heald began subdividing the area. After moving to the area in 1891 philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps founded the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Scripps Hospital, and built the La Jolla Library. Hollywood stars flocked to La Valencia Hotel in the 1920’s and 30’s, and when the University of California San Diego (UCSD) came in the mid-60’s, professors and students established the town as a hub for innovation and scholarship. UCSD has become a highly touted source for science and medicine, as well as arts and other skills. Tom Wolfe set his 1968 best seller, “The Pump house Gang” at Windansea Beach, where surfers and rebels hung out, and La Jolla High likes to mention that Gregory Peck, Raquel Welch and Robin Wright are treasured grads. Beside the fancy restaurants, hotels, shops and galleries, fun things to do include all kinds of water sports, exploring the La Jolla Sea Caves by kayak, gawking at the daredevils at the Torrey Pines Glider port, attention the famous Torrey Pines Golf tournaments, visiting seals and sea lions at the children’s pool, visiting the Birch Aquarium, enjoying the shows at La Jolla Playhouse which often move to hit reviews in NYC, hiking the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, or strolling around the Cove. Or swim in the caves! La Jolla is often said to be name for the Spanish word for “the jewel” OR for the Kumeyaay term for “hole in the mountains” (Woholle).
