As one of nine special residences located on the historic 7th Avenue in San Diego, 3530 7th Avenue provides a rare opportunity to own a beautiful, historical home in Balboa Park’s northwest corner. Built in 1911 by the Pacific Building Company, 4,000 square foot home has been completely remodeled to today’s standards of luxury living, and is truly one of San Diego’s best-kept secrets.
Privacy abounds as soon as you enter the courtyard, where you are surrounded by lush landscaping, a fireplace, and a peaceful fountain that sets the mood perfectly for quiet entertaining.
The minute you walk in the foyer, you notice the “Control 4” smart home system that controls almost every aspect of the home including dual zoned environmental systems, lighting, fire pits, fountains, security systems and the entire full-house entertainment systems. All controls can be accessed via your smart-phone.
Immediately to the right, you come into a formal living room with fireplace and a formal dining room to your left with built-in buffet. Passing through the dining room leads you into a massive media or family room equipped with the latest sound and entertainment systems. As you traverse through the home you enter into a spacious, gourmet, eat-in kitchen featuring an enormous solid slab island, stainless steel appliances, wet-bar or butler’s pantry & enough cabinet storage to satisfy any chef. A full sized laundry room with ample storage and a large powder room can also be found on the first floor.
Just outside the kitchen, you find yourself in another private, backyard, lush patio area with full outdoor stainless-steel kitchen and wet bar. This leads to the back of the property with a 2-car garage and a completely detached, self-contained guest suite with full bath, fridge and modern conveniences.
Back inside the home, the second level brings you to an enormous master suite including a fireplace, sitting area, and a large, custom, walk-in, cedar-lined closet. The Crème de la Crème is of course, the master bathroom suite, featuring custom, floor-to-ceiling imported Italian marble backsplash, large steam shower w/ multiple shower heads and a large, jetted soaking tub. A truly magnificent spa bathroom reminiscent of any luxury boutique hotel suite you would find in Europe.
Just adjacent to the master suit, you will find a large, private outdoor, rooftop terrace overlooking Balboa Park and The famous Marston House Museum across the street. This spectacular outdoor area features a 20 foot fire pit, fountains, a full stainless steel kitchen with 6 burner grill, side burners, sink and wine cooler plus plenty of storage, making it the perfect place to entertain.
This historic home is truly a must see property that is not only very private and secure, but right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of San Diego, Balboa Park and numerous area restaurants and nightlife yet minutes to downtown and the airport. Schedule your private showing now.
