San Diego | $1.495 Million
A 2005 Mediterranean-style house with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, on a 0.1 acre lot
This house is in Carmel Valley, which was mostly agricultural land until the late 1970s. Since then, development has been swift, thanks to the area’s proximity to the University of California San Diego and the University City business district. The Del Mar Fairgrounds, a 1936 complex with a popular horse-racing track, is about 10 minutes away by car. The La Jolla beaches are half an hour away, and downtown San Diego is about the same distance.
Size: 2,056 square feet
Price per square foot: $727
Indoors: The front yard is landscaped with succulents surrounding a low stucco wall with a wooden gate, which opens to an entrance courtyard with a stone fountain.
Beyond the front door is a foyer with Spanish-tile floors that extend into the open kitchen and living area. The kitchen was recently updated with marble counters and a Wolf cooktop. Opposite a butcher-block island is a dining area with sliding-glass doors that open to the driveway. On the other side of the kitchen is a living room with a fireplace, backyard-facing windows and a glass door out to the backyard.
To the right of the front door is a guest room with built-in shelving; across the hall is a powder room with Moroccan-inspired tile.
