Mission Hills Estate Description!
Welcome to truly elite, private luxury living within the gates of the Samuel & Lulu Maxwell House, 1927, the City of San Diego Historic Landmark No. 1080 -- an extraordinary hilltop villa in the prime historic district of North Mission Hills, one of the most prestigious locations in coastal San Diego.
Think storybook setting: a page out of Architectural Digest, serene Beverly Hillsesque streets with ocean/canyon views, a landmark residence with 5-star amenities, completely restored with every luxurious detail!
Mission Hills benefits from her dual virtues of proximity to the best of 'vacation San Diego' and the serene beauty of its' lush wildlife canyons and architechtural splendor!
This Spanish Colonial Revival style masterpiece has been completely and authentically refurbished so that all of the warm period details from rough-hewn beamed ceilings to wrought iron hardware to original fireplaces to multiple sets of French Doors to archways to alcoves to built-ins to hardwood and intricate patterned Spanish tile floors and much more ALL combine to create an intimate sanctuary to enjoy every day life as well as the ultimate setting for sophisticated indoor-outdoor living with view decks and an old-world courtyard ideal for entertaining.
This distinguished residence lives like a private compound, is set back more than 20 feet, is a corner lot and has a massive bamboo hedge, and is also walled and gated.
The property exhibits unobstructed views, exceptional quality craftsmanship and overall design articulation of the Spanish Colonial Revival style.
Character defining architectural features which contributed to its' designation as a San Diego HIstorical Landmark include low-pitched terra cotta tile roofs, softly undulating stucco exterior wall surfaces, asymmetrical facades, recessed windows and doors, arched openings, decorative grilles and garden walls.
This integrity and beauty combine to create a grand 'feeling' which the Historic Review Board characterizes as this property's ''expression of the aesthetic or and historic sense of a particular period of time'.
The photos are as good a proxy for this elegant residence as any can be, but some additional details: A 2400 s.f. home on a nearly 18,000 s.f. lot with 4 bedrooms or (3+ attached library/nursery) and 3 1/2 baths including detached guest house. Lives much larger as nearly all living spaces open to finished courtyards, decks, terraces and gardens for the ultimate in indoor/outdoor Southern California living!
