Our home is located on a hill above a beautiful nature preserve (San Elijo Lagoon), it's very secluded and is at the end of a dirt driveway. Since the weather in San Diego is lovely year-round, we frequently take walks down into the reserve to enjoy the beautiful views.
Because the home is perched on its own hill above the reserve, it is very private and hase no direct neighbors. The home was built from solid cedar in 1980 much as a Lindal log cabin. As you can see from the photos, the focal point of the house consists of the 8 massive picture windows that allow you to enjoy views of the breaking surf. There is a telescope to study the surfers prior to heading to the beach.
Although the house is 3 levels, the most used rooms are located on a single level -- the second level above the subterranean basement and garage. Upon entering, you walk into the great room, with a full kitchen and dining area off the the left. The master suite is located on one side of the house and two additional bedrooms are located with the laundry facilities on the opposite -- as 2 wings. The third level is a loft area used as a family television room and includes a futon fold up bed.

We have plenty of beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, etc to take with you to enjoy the shore. For avid surfers we have both long boards and short boards for use as well.
Please be aware that the deck cantilevers over a canyon with railing designed to maximize the panorama. Unmatched, expansive view for adults but a possible risk for children. So we have to limit guests to adults, or those with adolescent children.
