Prime location off 15th Street, perched atop Crest Road. Unparalleled Olde Del Mar Craftsman overflowing wth charm, beauty, architecture and elegance! Awarded San Diego Home/Garden "Garden of the Year". Impressive grounds with koi pond, waterfall, pool and extensive decking. Private park-like setting and relaxing spaces. Walk to the village or the beach. One of a kind eat-in kitchen, luxurious master suite with office, terrace and ocean views, gorgeous Honduran Mahogany, elevator and extraordinary finishes.

This exquisite Craftsman home has been lovingly designed and built in the tradition of Greene and Greene and the American Arts and Crafts movement. From its grand architecture to the smallest details of its landscaping and cabinetry, the house and grounds bespeak master craftsmanship and an aesthetic integration of horizontal and vertical, tranquil and dynamic, human and natural. Located in Old Del Mar off 15th Street, this property has prime location; short distance to the Del Mar Race Track, village and ocean.

The entry level features a formal dining room, living room, kitchen, full bathroom, and bedroom or office. The kitchen features cabinetry made of Bird's eye maple, Gaggenau double ovens, Rankin deluxe commercial range, double sub-zero refrigerators, a center island with a sink, butler's pantry, dumb waiter and copper faucets. The kitchen also has a breakfast area and a wood-burning fireplace. The staircase which borrows its design from the Gamble House in Pasadena, is made of Honduras Mahogany and finished with the cloud lift design.

Outdoors, the setting is just as extraordinary; in fact, the garden is featured on the September cover of San Diego Home/Garden as its 2014 Garden of the Year. Master Landscaper Takendo Arii has transformed the hillside into a multi-leveled Japanese garden with koi ponds, water-lilies, and multiple decks and serene seating areas traversed by wooden bridges and stepping stones. Looking up from the lowest level of the garden, one sees the full vertical drama of the garden, hill, house, and sky.
