Set in the historic Burlingame neighborhood, this architecturally-unique San Diego home has been beautifully updated and is likely to take your breath away. Originally a modest 1922 Mission Revival Bungalow, it was transformed into a distinctive Modern Deconstruction by renowned architects Davids and Killroy. Today, the residence is locally known as the Tower House for its 19-foot stucco and marble-clad tower observatory and its dramatic yet efficiently functional charm. As soon as you walk through the front-door, you will marvel at its original maple hardwood floors, Gumwood French doors, and molding throughout; as well as the peaceful courtyard in the center of the house letting in plenty of natural light and easy access to many of the rooms. Cooking up gourmet meals will come easily in the tasteful kitchen where you can enjoy the granite countertops, stunning Birdseye maple cabinets, contemporary stainless steel appliances, and the beautiful entryway to the backyard garden perfect for both relaxing and entertaining. The backyard is a tranquil hideaway to escape and enjoy time with family and friends. Outdoor gazebo, koi pond with a water feature and relaxing hot tub.

You can retreat to the tower to take advantage of your floor-to-ceiling library that has 145 bookshelves. Head up the steel steps that take you from the ground floor to the reading-room ideal for working remotely at the built-in desk, while easily sending heavy books up and down the dumbwaiter. This private hideaway has another set of steel steps that lead to the panoramic rooftop observatory. Here, you’ll relish prestigious views of Balboa Park, downtown San Diego, the Coronado Bridge, the beaches of Point Loma, and see as far as the mountains of Jamul and across the border into Mexico, all while privately reading books from your impressive library. You’re ideally located for a vibrant lifestyle walking distance to local boutiques, restaurants and cafés, and entertainment options, including the Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown, the San Diego Zoo, and the Balboa Park Golf Corse. Hybrid yet authentic, this futuristic and quintessential home could be all yours, so come get a glimpse to experience it all for yourself!
