We’re creating a new website that will have features on each community, so new photos were needed to accompany. Here are the La Jolla pics that didn’t make the cut, but I thought were still blog-worthy:
Here is my tour of the Wheeler Bailey home, designed by Irving Gill in 1907
Love how this house looks down the coastline, taking full advantage of the lot. It was active on the MLS for four minutes, and the agent noted in the confidential remarks that is was “SOLD Prior to Activation in the MLS” even though it had been on and off the market since 2016:

In the next blog post, I mention Case Study House #23A in La Jolla, which was granted national historic designation in July, 2013.
Here is some background from wiki:
The Case Study Houses were experiments in American residential architecture sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine, which commissioned major architects of the day to design and build inexpensive and efficient model homes for the United States residential housing boom caused by the end of World War II and the return of millions of soldiers.
The program ran intermittently from 1945 until 1966. The first six houses were built by 1948 and attracted more than 350,000 visitors. While not all 36 designs were built, most of those that were constructed were built in Los Angeles, and one was built in San Rafael, Northern California and one in Phoenix, Arizona.
A number of the houses appeared in the magazine in iconic black-and-white photographs by architectural photographer Julius Shulman.
A review of the three houses built on Rue de Anne:
Unfortunately, there was a collision at the gliderport yesterday where two people died. Here’s what it’s like flying one, with a view of La Jolla Farms:
This had been on the market for two years before it finally sold for $15,000,000 cash in September. Another Marengo deal; it sold for $7,800,000 in 2014:
I snipped this Zillow forecast (above) in October, 2016. They expected La Jolla home values to go up 2.1% in 2017, which earned a ‘Very Cold’ label.
The La Jolla ZHVI rose 7% in 2017, so their forecast was a tad conservative. The index has been dropping lately, but they are expecting values to flatten:
Other Zillow forecasts – they like Carmel Valley:
You can find more data here (they predict the U.S. market will be +6.4%):
This is the fifth major project that Mark Morris has completed for our different clients over the years, and he went all out on this one! This video tour is over ten minutes long, but feel free to use the pause button liberally:
