Please click on Virtual Tour link to experience the property in all of its 3D glory! Attention History Buffs and Historic Home lovers! This exquisite example of the mid-century modern style was built in 1963 in the Grossmont Park area of Mt. Helix. Mt. Helix is a hilly, semi-rural pocket of La Mesa with rambling roads and secluded homes tucked into a landscape of gardens, boulders, citrus, and shade trees. The home boasts 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and approximately 2523 sq. ft., all on a single level. Additional rooms and full bathroom on a lower level are accessed from a separate outside entrance. Approximate area is 615 square feet per previous appraisal and is not included in the square footage listed in the MLS. The possibilities for utilizing this area are endless. Extended family, teenager, office, art studio, man-cave, Air BnB.... This 1.66 acre parcel hosts multiple varieties of fruit trees--avocado (Fuerte and Haas), grapefruit, lemon, navel orange, juicing orange, Mandarin orange, persimmon, apple, and fig trees. There are Canary date palm trees, a palm grotto, and two main-level garden areas. There is ample space for another large garden area or possibly a vineyard? Large synthetic grass area and soothing waterfall and pond are ideally located just off the outdoor patio and entertaining area, and boulders are scattered about the property. You will enjoy views of the city lights, mountain peaks, and trees. There is plenty of space for parking, and room for an RV, if desired. The house features high ceilings and a graceful, open and flowing floor plan, ideal for entertaining and peaceful daily living. Attractive and practical built-ins are found throughout the home—shelving, display cases, desks, and drawers. Marvel at the original Pomona tile in the kitchen and baths, original built-in speakers, under-lit hanging kitchen cabinets, 2 fireplaces, a heated jetted tub in one bathroom, ample storage through the home and on a lower level, and a remarkable custom designed redwood walk-in closet in the master suite. All rooms have outside access and huge windows to enjoy your views. Expansive outdoor areas are connected to the interior by 12' wide sliding doors that bring the outside in. When the current owners purchased the property in 2015 from the original owners, it required substantial TLC. They embarked on a major restoration process to both the interior and exterior. All improvements were made while honoring the architect’s original vision. The renovation resulted in the Historical Designation of the home and a Mills Act contract with the County that offers substantial tax benefits which will transfer to the new homeowner. The property is now known on the San Diego County Historic Register as The [Sidney & Henrietta] Wexler House. The next owner will become only the 3rd caretaker of this authentically preserved custom home, designed by Master Architect Lloyd Ruocco. It is believed that Ilse Ruocco, a gifted interior and textile designer, chose the unique, original lighting fixtures found throughout the house. This timeless property exudes warmth and serenity, in part because the indoor and outdoor spaces blend seamlessly. Ruocco’s gift for—and insistence on—placing buildings for optimal enjoyment of and minimal intrusion on nature are traits he shared with Frank Lloyd Wright. Original design blueprints are available and will convey to new owner. Please see MLS attachment under D tab for Improvements List and Features List.
