Travel back in time as you relax in a home constructed in 1912. Period piece furniture through out gives you the feel of a simpler time and less hectic life. The furniture in the room and home was made between the late 1800 and the 1940's. Relax pool side as or take a stroll around the block. This is one of the last true neighborhoods in San Diego.
The neighborhood is quite but very close to city activities. Ten minute walk to Hillcrest or Balboa Park, Five minute drive to downtown or Little Italy.
