Property details

Own a piece of San Diego history!  This mid-century modern style complex was designed by innovative Master Architects Lloyd Ruocco and Homer Delawie.  Recently designated historic, and Mills Act approved!  Upas Park is one of only a few residential buildings in San Diego that are Mills Act approved, allowing for a substantial reduction in annual property taxes.  Meticulously and thoughtfully refined, this top floor, corner unit residence overlooks world famous Balboa Park.

Mid-Century modern entices you with classic decor with the central landscaped courtyard with water feature. From the moment you enter the residence, and look down the gallery hall, you capture the views of Balboa Park.  Upon entering the light and bright kitchen you immediately sense the marriage between vintage inspired design with modern performance.  Features in the kitchen include Kitchen-Aid appliances with retro “Big Chill” skins, induction cooktop with commercial style hood, wall oven/microwave, European style InnerMost cabinets with wine rack and under counter lighting.  Other designs include a 3D tile backsplash, recycled quartz counter tops, single handle pull down faucet, under mount stainless steel sink, and glistening birch hardwood floors. Enjoy sunny views from the breakfast area, which also features an office nook.  Step up onto the concrete floor to enjoy the main living space.  Floor-to-ceiling windows provide the perfect invitation to reconnect with nature right from your living room.  All of the windows and the slider are Milgard double-pane with full lifetime warranties.  Keep cool (and warm) with a stylish “Art Cool Gallery” LG ductless air-conditioner for today’s discerning art collector.  Personalize the unit with your favorite artwork or photography for the ultimate in custom design plus energy-efficient technology. The living room offers custom, built-in shelving, and is wired for audio/visual. Just off the living room is a spacious 12x6 balcony that has a folding table for al fresco dining.  The balcony is also fitted with electrical and a hose spigot. The current owners have created the ultimate retro loft by opening the wall to the bedroom.  This allows you to capture the park views right from the comfort of your bed.  This open space invites so many sophisticated mid-century wall or room divider options.  The bedroom area offers custom handcrafted wood closet doors by local artist Helvey Design Studio, and a modern 4 speed ceiling fan.  Let the spa like bathroom whisk you away with the river stone, slate, marble and glass shower, stylish Villeroy & Boch suspended toilet and sink, chic Keuco lighted mirror, and Honsgrohe  faucet and shower fixtures. Other features of this residence include in-unit Miele stackable washer and dryer, LED recessed and adjustable gallery lighting with dimmers, Nest smoke detector system, wired for cable/internet and Sonos, rapid hot water system, as well as all new plumbing and electrical.  Every light in this residence is on a dimmer allowing for total control of the mood when the sun goes down. Additional storage is located at the end of the parking area as well as a nearby storage closet to store bikes and larger items. Upas Park is centrally located, and is walking distance to the Zoo, museums, theater, restaurants, coffee shops, fitness, trails and more!  Easy freeway and public transportation access. Low HOA fees + reduced property taxes make this property a very rare opportunity.
