Historic charm meets timeless luxury at this gated English Storybook/French Normandy Tudor masterpiece originally designed in 1924 by master architect, Edgar V. Ullrich, that has been beautifully maintained and expanded upon throughout the years! The iconic home is situated on an exceedingly-rare 11,219 SqFt corner lot in the Beach Barber Tract neighborhood just one block from Marine Street beach and a short walk to all of amenities of La Jolla’s Village! Original details abound throughout the home, including multiple Juliet balconies, masonry fireplaces, built-in cabinetry and window seats, hardwood floors, and leaded mullioned windows with clear and stained glass that open to admire the ocean views that adorn the 2nd and 3rd levels, or to feel the ocean breeze and listen to the waves as you fall asleep. The home’s expansive and versatile floorplan features 5 en-suite bedrooms plus 3 optional bedrooms that could also serve as dedicated offices for working from home, a bonus recreation space, or an exercise room – additionally, the property features a detached 1BR/1BA guest studio apartment/ADU above the detached garage with its own kitchenette and private entry! Enjoy indoor-outdoor living and effortless entertaining in either of the home’s two grand living spaces – the original formal living room with cathedral vaulted ceilings or the sprawling family room with soaring, 3-story ceilings and a breathtaking fireplace inspired by Yosemite’s Ahwahnee Lodge – both of which feature walls of French doors that open to expansive backyard with outdoor living and dining spaces amidst lush gardens and offers enough space for the next owners to add an in-ground pool! Widely admired for its striking architectural beauty and its manicured landscaping with idyllic gardens and hedged fencing that surrounds the home, this landmark property is affectionally called “The Monkey House” by locals because of a sculpture that dons the home’s front gable showing two monkeys holding the Ullrich crest. A beloved setting for many family weddings, 4th of July parades, holiday parties, philanthropic events, and La Jolla Secret Garden Tours throughout its rich history, this home it will undoubtedly continue to serve as the backdrop of lifelong memories for years to come!
