A kitchen with a gas fireplace and stainless steel appliances leads through the dining area. To maximize space, the vendors added an angled island that turns this part of the room with its window seat into a cozy breakfast nook. Behind the kitchen is an area with additional storage space and a large wine refrigerator.
In the 1970s the house was raised and a basement floor with three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with a combined bath and shower and the other with a shower with subway tiles), a workshop with a black and white floor, was added and a laundry room.
The top level of the home is configured as a large primary suite with a fireplace, walk-in closet, and balcony with views of the Hotel del Coronado in one direction and downtown San Diego in the other. The private bathroom has a bathtub and a separate shower. An additional room on this floor could serve as a guest room or children's room. It is currently used as a home office and craft room.
The Craftsman style guest house has a living room, bedroom, bathroom with a claw foot tub, and kitchen fitted with new appliances.
Outside space: The terrace between the two houses is laid out with stone and grass and has a pergola-covered area with a fireplace, a built-in barbecue and an outside TV. The driveway has space for two cars.
