House of the Week: An old-style ‘green’ house


A house designed to reflect the style of home that would have been found in La Jolla in the 1930s and ‘40s, which has grown through the years, is filled with energy- and water-saving features, extensive insulation and landscaping for low water use. The 8,000-square-foot home has six bedrooms and nine baths, including a separate guest suite and his and hers master baths. An “inglenook” seating area in the living room, bead board wainscoting, a butlers pantry and open beam ceilings all contribute to evoke an earlier era.

Charles Stephens of Gallery Properties, who represents the listing, points out that one should not be taken in thinking that this is an “old-fashioned” home.
