I Love Houses!

This summer the hubby and I spent the weekend in La Jolla which is a quaint city on the beach north of San Diego.  Each morning we took a walk along the beach and through this neighborhood of historic homes.  I can only dream about living in something with so much history and beauty.

This is the Florence Palmer house built in 1929.  It is a 3 bedroom home with 3 baths and 4 patios with cottage style gardens.  It has 1908 square feet of living space on a 4,408 square foot lot.  It was remodeled recently and is currently on the market for $2.3 million dollars.  
A whopping $1205 per square foot.

It really is a cute house!

This next house is the Morgan Larkins Marrone home listed on the San Diego Historic Homes as #226.
This home is currently owned by Linda Marrone a realtor and master gardener.

I fell in love with her garden gate and have used it for my header.  
I hope she doesn't mind.  It's so pretty!  Thanks Linda!

I love Spanish style homes and this one is so cute!  
It is the F. Lisle Morgan Spec House #1 built in 1929.  

I couldn't find any information about this one.  It's interesting that it was a spec home.
I wonder what the price was?  What was included? 

This is the Howard and Maude Brown House built in 1929.  
It boasts 2030 square feet and 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.

This is the street view on the side of the house.  Love it!

The largest house on this tour is the Darlington House.  It's a Mediterranean style home built in 1925.
It was owned by a wealthy NY widow named Sybil Darlington.  I wish I could find
more information....I'm curious.  It's a very large house for a widow!

It is now owned by the Social Service League of La Jolla and is a wonderful site
for weddings and receptions.

This cute little cottage sits right next door to the Darlington house. 
 I would love to know this history of this one too.  

Thanks to my hubby for bringing me to such a special place.  It was so relaxing
and we needed it.  Thanks too for letting me play and take photos to remember
the scenery and to share!  Enjoy!

What gorgeous and interesting homes! I went to La Jolla for the first time in June while I was visiting for my grand daughter's graduation. I would love to go back and spend a few days there.

Wow! George and I love La Jolla. It's such a pretty place to visit...or live. We've been several times just for a few hours to shop and/or have lunch or dinner. We've never walked around to see the houses. Now I wish we had. Maybe next time....

I love all those homes. My favorite it the cottage style. Homes today are just not built like they use to be. thanks for sharing.

Just a little something from Judy said...

What an enjoyable tour of homes. I love walking or driving through streets like these. Thanks for sharing pictures and info about each place. Since I am in the downsizing thought process, I like the smaller ones the most.
