Front of home contains an outdoor kitchen with flat-panel television

The front of the home has been altered to now contain a large sliding panel glass door, allowing for the entire front to be opened up. The traditional front door entrance is still in place adjacent to the panel slider. Adjacent to the front doors sits an outside kitchen, replete with flat screen television, beckoning those who love the mild San Diego climate outdoors to entertain and relax.

Kitchen, living and dining are all one room now, with a large chunky beam carrying the HVAC ducting

The stained concrete patio carries through the inside of the home, into the great room comprised of the kitchen, living and dining. All walls between these rooms have been obliterated, which maximizes the front yard views at the expense of interior privacy. As a result, now all the air ducting sits inside of a thick, heavy beam running through the center of the room. The fireplace sits on the western wall of the living room, and has been updated and revised from its original modernist stylings.

Kitchen has been updated with traditional cabinetry, granite counters and stainless steel appliances

The kitchen has been updated with traditional dark cabinetry topped with crown molding, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen sits at the rear of the home and contains a small window overlooking the backyard.

The master bedroom features a small bay window allowing for a few additional square feet, and it and the rest of the bedrooms feature their original, open beamed vaulted ceilings. The backyard is mainly un-landscaped, sited on a steep slope. At the top of the slope is a view deck, visible in the front yard pictures, offering an additional outdoor space in which to enjoy Mission Bay views.

This is a great property for entertaining, and while it has been taken away form it’s modernist roots, the home has great bones, great lines and an even better view.
