If you’re looking for character and luxury in the heart of La Mesa Highlands, this beautifully remodeled home offers plenty of both! No detail has been overlooked in redesigning this classic home, from the ground-up replacement of plumbing, electrical wiring and a new 30-year roof, to the complete infusion of luxurious elements that make living here a daily delight. The half-acre lot offers panoramic views of the surrounding hills and a yard to rival any resort.
The open living space is light and modern, with large, Milguard dual-pane windows covered by custom blinds and grey porcelain tile flooring throughout. A gas, ledgestone fireplace with decorative rocks is the focal point of the living room and provides a welcoming space to relax and watch the wired-in LG television above (negotiable). Wood-cased French doors lead to a spacious balcony with fantastic views and a staircase that provides access to the pool and outdoor amenities.
The sleek, designer kitchen is a showplace featuring quartzite counters, glass tile backsplash, skylight and recessed lighting. Custom wood cabinets with modern hardware conceal trash bins and a pantry with sliders. Premium stainless appliances include a Wolf six-burner gas range with glass and stainless hood, Whirlpool refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. Enjoy water filtration here and throughout the house. Kitchen extends to a pass-through breakfast bar with seating for three.
An extended window runs the length of the dining room, under which is situated a custom, red oak dining table set to enjoy the spectacular views of the city lights. Just beyond and around the corner, gain entry to the rear bedrooms.
The master suite is spacious with plush carpet, ceiling fan and large windows. A sumptuously appointed connecting bath offers his and her vanity, porcelain tile, and rich wood cabinetry. Luxuriate in the soaking tub or rejuvenate in the large, glass-enclosed shower. Beautiful Koehler faucets are featured here and throughout the home. The second bedroom on this level also has an adjoining, full bath.
From the living room, head down the red oak stairs to the lower level where a spacious, carpeted den with cozy fireplace and outdoor access awaits. The third bedroom and full bath offer exceptional privacy for a guest or shared living arrangement.
Stay home and play in your own backyard paradise! Greenery abounds with 25 fruit trees including banana and mango, and landscaped terraces and elevated planters containing sago palms, agave and a variety of succulents.

Invite friends to enjoy paradise with you. This is the ultimate party spot, with a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen featuring a Bull BBQ, refrigerator, sink, LG TV, speakers and bar seating.
